Rothbury Holiday Cottages

Renowned as being the capital of Coquetdale, this picturesque riverside market town has an abundance of welcoming pub restaurants, cafes, art galleries and a collection of traditional independent shops.

Rothbury is a great place to enjoy a self-catering holiday. Explore the surrounding Simonside Hills, the Cheviot Hills as well as the award-winning AONB ‘Dark Sky’ Northumberland National Park.

For more leisurely walks (and for smaller members of the family), Rothbury riverside not only has a children’s play area and picnic spot but provides access to scenic riverside walks on the banks of the Coquet where you can see the resident ducks and swans gliding through the water. Have fun walking across the river over the stepping stones, enjoy a spot of fishing or continue through woodland to Thrum Mill, an historic 17th century water mill, recently restored and featured on the TV series, Restoration Man. Salmon can also be seen leaping at the weir.

Just outside the centre of Rothbury lies the former home of the Victorian Industrialist Lord Armstrong now managed by the National Trust. Cragside House, Gardens and Estate was the first in the world to be lit by hydroelectricity and is well worth a day out exploring the wonderful house and beautiful grounds. Red squirrels are a common sight along with lots of other wildlife. There is a large adventure play park, a maize, lake side and river walks, a formal garden with in iconic iron bridge and acres of parkland to explore. Stop by the courtyard before heading back to your holiday cottage, for a browse around the lovely gift shop and enjoy a tasty treat from the wonderful café. Either sit inside or relax on one of the many picnic tables outside the courtyard overlooking the scenic Tumbleton Lake.   

Rothbury is a fantastic springboard for all types of coast and countryside adventures, due to its unique position in the heart of Northumberland. Walking, cycling, golfing, fishing and water sports are all readily accessible.

The town plays host to popular events throughout the year including an annual traditional music festival held in July, an arts and crafts Street Fair in May and the nearby village of Alwinton hosts the Alwinton Border Shepherds Show in October.
