Description from owner


“Hectors house” is located in the Northumberland village of Rothbury, which has outstanding local features along with hill walks and beautiful scenery. A major feature of Rothbury is Cragside, which is home to the famous Lord Armstrong, inventor of Electricity and other major Engineering. Hectors house is located on the street named Model Buildings in Rothbury and is attached back of the United reformed church and runs south toward the river coquet and park/ picnic area. It was originally built around 1860 by Lord Armstrong for his workers and used as the street name states as “Model buildings” of future work houses in the village with running water and flushing toilets.

The property was extended in around 1992 to add a bedroom and bathroom. Then in 2013 the property was fully re furbished to add a further bedroom in the roof space with en-suite toilet and hand basin. Velux roof lights give more views over the Simonside hills.

This property is our own personal property and has been refurbished without cutting any corners and completed to a very high standard as after all you do not wish to stay in a property that is not as comfortable as your own home and that is our objective and hope you like what you see and enjoy your stay.

The main living space on the first floor is an open plan living room with light oak fitted kitchen with electric cooker and electric halogen hob with integrated dishwasher. There is not a washing machine. The fridge freezer is a free standing Smeg unit in Cream. The oak stairs lead up from the open plan living room to the roof room Bedroom with king size bed with en suite toilet and separate hand wash basin.

From the living room, a door leads into the rear dining room/ dressing room and bath room.

The bathroom is fully tiled and has a walk in mains presure shower with sliding glass door. The hand basin has a mirror above with vanity light and the toilet has a slow closing lid to avoid the unnecessary lid drop.

Hectors houses provides the following;

• Caters for 2 adults comfortably

• Gas central heating

• Double glazing

• Electric cooker and hob

• LED lights throughout the property

• 1 King size bed in the roof space bedroom with en-suite toilet and hand basin

• Dressing room / dining room

• Bathroom with step up- walk in shower, toilet and hand basin

You will receive a welcome hamper on your arival day, which contains special items to welcome you to our property.
