Description

The sound of silence!

A delightful cottage set in a tranquil country setting. The cottage is full of character and enjoys views in all directions, over farmland, northwards toward the Cheviot Hills and southwards towards Thrunton Woods.

This cared-for cottage is spacious but cosy and provides an ideal base to relax for the day or from which to explore. Rothlea is only 10 minutes drive from Alnwick, home to the Duke of Northumberland, visit Alnwick Castle, Alnwick Garden, Museum and the famous Barter Bookssecond hand bookshop. Rothbury, with small local shops and lovely views is only quarter of an hour away - drive past The National Trust's Cragside House and Gardens along the way.

The coast and Cheviot Hills are within 20 minutes or perhaps you'd prefer to enjoy walking from the property up to Thrunton Woods or an hour's circular walk around the village.

Steps down from the gravelled parking area to a west facing entrance porch.
