Full Description

Known locally as the Capital of Coquetdale, the traditional Northumbrian Village of Rothbury is offers an excellent range of shops, with many art galleries, tea rooms, cafes and pubs. It makes a very convenient base for fishing with the River Coquet being a short walk from all the properties and is stocked with salmon and Trout. Fishing licences are available locally.

Nearby there is also Fontburn Reservoir and Caistron Trout Fishery and River. The village is also ideal for walking into the Northumberland National Park and Simonside, as well as offering less strenuous riverside walks. Rothbury lies near the centre of rural Northumberland, 12 miles from Alnwick, 15 miles from Morpeth, 16 miles from unspoilt beaches and 29 miles from Newcastle upon Tyne.

Rothbury serves as a hub for the outlying Villages and as such has a good choice of places to eat and drink. You might be surprised to hear that in such a small place not only are there a number of pubs and cafes, but there is also an Italian restaurant, an Indian restaurant, Chinese takeaway and chip shop! The numerous cafes are extremely popular with families, the walkers and cyclists.

Rothbury has an award-winning selection of local, independent shops in which you can buy practically anything from meat to shoes and wine.

Stay with us and you will be able to choose from,

Cairn Rigg which is an attractive, detached stone built cottage and situated on a quiet country lane on the edge of Rothbury.
