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.

The solid oak front door leads to a compact hall with shoe box, main staircase and access to the large open-plan sitting room. The beamed ceilings, log burning stove, huge stone fireplace and large sofas provide atmosphere and character and charm to this tranquil room. There is a snug area behind the fireplace offering more space. The large flatscreen television, Blue ray DVD player, Video and stereo midi system and wireless internet access are all available or just settle onto one of the two large sofas with a holiday book to read. The stripped pine cupboard has a selection of books, DVDs videos, games and local guides.

Two steps lead down to the hall which has an oak desk, telephone for emergency or incoming calls, internet connection, information folders, maps, guides etc. Views over pastures to the rear, a coat rack with hooks and access one way to the shower room or through a glazed door to the kitchen.

The shower room has a semi circular shower cubicle with electric shower, an airing cupboard, heated towel rail, wash hand basin and WC with views over the fields!

The fully fitted kitchen/diner has a beamed ceiling, double oven electric cooker, ceramic hob, dishwasher, washing machine, walk-in pantry, microwave, fridge/freezer, old stripped pine table and digital radio with ipod/mp3 input connection. The bay window gives panoramic views over the fields towards the hills behind Alnwick.
