A stunningly refurbished country cottage located in a peaceful hamlet just 20-minutes’ drive outside Rothbury. Great for families or friends, it’s in an ideal location for exploring both coast and country.

Located in the peaceful hamlet of Alwinton, this cottage’s wonderful original features have been lovingly retained, with a brand-new wing added to create light and provide even more floor space. It lies in the Coquet Valley, known to visitors, walkers and cyclists for its easy access to many local attractions, including the Cheviot Hills, Harbottle Woods, the Northumberland National Park, and the award-winning Dark Skies Park. Alnwick Castle is also nearby, and the many beaches and seaside villages that Northumberland has to offer are less than one hours’ drive away. The hamlet is home to a historic pub/restaurant with a beer garden, offering the perfect watering hole just a stone’s throw from the property.

The single-storey cottage has a real wow factor. Enter into a small lobby/boot room before stepping through to the open-plan lounge, which has an impressive glass window wall offering breath-taking countryside views. Relax on the sofa or armchair in front of the warming, wood burning stove which is set in a feature fireplace. Here you can enjoy watching the TV, a Blu-ray or DVD, while you’ll also find some good maps if you wish to spend your evenings planning your next outing. The dining area has seating for four, while the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need during your stay; an electric oven and ceramic hob, microwave, fridge with icebox, and even a dishwasher. Step into the impressive master bedroom, which boasts beautiful garden and countryside views. Here you’ll find a super-king-size zip-and-link bed, which can be made into twin beds on request. The second bedroom is a twin, with two single beds, while there is also a third bedroom for a fifth guest. The bathroom, meanwhile, has a bath with shower over, and WC. Also available for guests with children: travel cot, high chair, bed guard and a fun toy box.

Head outside into the large enclosed garden, where kids will be delighted to find a low level wooden tree/play house, accessed by a short wooden ladder. There’s also a patio area with an outdoor dining table and seating, so you can enjoy an al fresco dinner whilst taking in the view. The shed contains some outdoor games, including garden boules and a croquet set, and you can also store bicycles here. To the front of the property is off-road parking for one car, while additional parking is available on the green opposite, towards the pub.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Had a very relaxed week here. Cottage is beautifully decorated and beds are super comfy! My son loved seeing the chickens coming into the garden almost every morning. Lots of kids toys and board game available. Nearest village with a decent shop is about 20mins away. Would happily return to bridge end cottage

Lovely little cottage. A great get away for a couple or perhaps someone bringing young children. Bathroom in very close proximity to open sitting area (probably metre and a half from loo to sofa) which may make some people feel uncomfortable if youre not family. Neat Ikea Kitchen, small but very functional and workable. Pub next door if you dont waRead morent to cook! The double bedroom is beautiful, the singles are tight for adults, but again ok for children. Hide

This was our second visit and spending Christmas here was fantastic. The place is so peaceful and comfortably isolated, which coming from the congested South East was very welcome indeed. The cottage itself is spotlessly clean and very modern yet still retains quaint charm and warmth. Its incredibly easy to live in for a week. A quick tip, the propRead moreerty has wooden flooring throughout so if you suffer with cold feet, take some slippers or non slippy socks. We loved our Xmas week here. Hide

Comfortable cottage set in a beautiful location with stunning walks straight from the door. Really enjoyed our stay.

This is our 2nd visit to this lovely cottage after a very successful stay in Oct 2018. We are keen walkers so for us, the location in the upper Coquet valley is the main attraction. You can walk from the door or drive further up the valley for easier access to the Border Ridge. Wed happily return for a 3rd time as there are still lots of walks we hRead moreavent done. Hide

A lovely cottage in a beautiful location - it was great to be able to sit outside and see the Cheviot Hills from the garden. A very comfortable superking sized bed, which allowed us to feel really relaxed and rested by the end of the holiday.
