Brackenlea Holiday Cottage - Rothbury, Northumberland

Brackenlea Cottage is beautifully located in the peaceful and historic village of Harbottle within The Northumberland National Park, nestling in the stunning Southern Cheviot Hills of Upper Coquetdale. A wonderful "hidden gem" of a destination; Brackenlea Cottage offers the perfect base for those wanting to truly experience Northumberland at its very best. Originally built in 1820, this charming stone cottage has recently undergone total refurbishment to provide stylish and luxurious accommodation whilst retaining its traditional Northumbrian character. Harbottle is a quiet and idyllic retreat in the heart of the Upper Coquet Valley with miles of beautiful scenery all around. The ruins of the medieval fortress of Harbottle Castle are just yards away and the tranquil River Coquet winds its way past the village down through the Coquet valley on its way to Rothbury. The Cottage: Brackenlea Cottage has been beautifully furnished throughout to provide a cosy and contemporary countryside retreat. It is the perfect size for a couple, but with a second bedroom it can also accommodate children or friends/family. The open plan ground floor has all you need to rustle up a tasty meal and the luxurious leather sofas are ideal to relax and rest those tired limbs after a long day of walking or sightseeing. The cottage has been recently updated and restyled with contemporary artwork by local artists, Laura Ashley blinds, luxury Tweedmill wool throws and gorgeous Voyage Maison cushions, all blending in with the woodland animal and countryside theme.
