The Northumberland region

Northumberland is renowned for being one of the most beautiful counties in England, with very little to spoil the natural landscape. It is also very rich in history with more castles than any other county and links with the beginnings of Christianity on nearby Holy Island.

The one hundred of miles of untouched coastline is a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty and is therefore a popular destination for those who want to find some peace and quiet. Birdwatchers and nature lovers can't help but fall in love with the region, abundant with rare birds, red squirrels and wild deer. There is plenty to see and do in this beautiful and exciting region.


Coquet Cottage is situated in Low Alwinton which sits on the border of the Northumberland national park, within walking distance of the local village pub which sells good home cooked food. They are overlooked by the beautiful Harbottle Forest and near the banks of the River Coquet.

The Northumberland National Park is famed for its wide variety of rare animals. Some animals that visitors may be able to spot include rare birds, otters, red squirrels as well as deer and the Chillingham Wild Cattle.

Such an unspoiled landscape provides a haven for wildlife; Black Grouse can be heard over the hills in early spring, and even the rare Osprey is a well known Summer visitor. Otters now are no longer a rarity along the length of the River Coquet and a glimpse of one of these elusive creatures can remain with you for a lifetime.

And if all that peace & quiet gets too much - You are only a short drive away from thriving market towns, such as Alnwick and Morpeth. For the die-hard shopaholic, Newcastle upon Tyne offers fantastic shops and world famous nightlife.

Alwinton is about 18 miles (29 km) to the west of Alnwick and 10 miles north of Rothbury. Alwinton village lies at the head of the Coquet valley, on the edge of both the Otterburn Army Training Estate and the Northumberland National Park, roughly 10 miles (16 km) from the border with Scotland. A road continues past Alwinton into the Cheviot Hills where it terminates at the ancient Roman encampment of Chew Green.
