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.

Great comfortable apartment with wonderful views. Only negatives ... Kitchen equipment a bit sparse and rather dark. That said we would definitely visit again.

This was our fourth time staying at Westcliffe House, first time under new ownership. The "care package" welcome was very appreciated and grounds and overall appearance was much improved. Our only suggestion would be a broom and dustpan, rather than having to haul out the vacuum cleaner everytime we wanted to "sweep" the kitchen floor!
Will continue to stay there as long as our family are living in Rothbury.

Very spacious, well-equipped and very comfortable 4* apartment with beautiful views. Rothbury offers a good range of shops and eating out options and is very central for exploring both the national park, the Alnwick attractions and the lovely Northumberland coast. Would certainly recommend this property and this area to friends and family.
