We shared this accommodation with friends for the weekend and it turned out to be every bit as good as the website/pictures/previous reviews. It is very spacious, well decorated, clean and equipped. There was even a small basket of 'goodies' when we arrived - tea, bread etc. The view frim the front of the house is excellent and we enjoyed watching the wildlife out on the lawns. The walk to town is only 15 minutes and Rothbury is a very nice place with some nice pubs etc. We would definitely stay again if visiting the area.
The apartment was beautiful,very spacious & well equipped as advertised.. Unfortunately we did not experience good weather until our last day at the property, so could not appreciate the wonderful views until then. We found the property was a bit further out of the village of Rothbury than tha advert had suggested, as well as up a fairly steep incline. Okay if you are good walkers but none of us were, so we had to use the car every evening to go for a meal. Rothbury village was excellent & had all we required. The people were so friendly & helpful to us. We were only there for four days but they were a delightful four days and we should all love to go back there providing some nice dry weather can be guaranteed!!
Lovely flat, comfortable and clean. We had an initial problem with wifi access but this was sorted out immediately, otherwise no other problems. Lovely area of the country with lots to do, would thoroughly recommend.
This was our second visit to this group of apartments and we had another very enjoyable stay. The apartments are very well equipped, clean and comfortable. The location is excellent with lovely views across the valley. There are some decent walking routes from the front door and when we stayed we saw a deer in the front garden. All in all very good value for money.
