Apartment overview - owner's description

A self catering holiday home a stone's throw away from the River Coquet in the beautiful Village of Rothbury. Built of natural sandstone by Lord Armstrong of the famous Cragside Estates in the 1870's.

The property is deceptively spacious and comprises of an entrance hallway, fitted kitchen with gas hob and electric oven, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer.

The spacious lounge/diner comfortably seats four people and there is a twin bedroom, double bedroom and family bathroom with washer/dryer. Outside there is a small private courtyard with storage shed.

The picturesque Village of Rothbury has excellent shops, restaurants and amenities and is located on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, providing an ideal base to explore rural Northumberland.

We are happy to accept one well behaved dog at this property and there is a pet fee payable with your booking of £20 per dog(s). Please enquire if you have more than one dog and let us know the breed and we still may accept your booking.

A range of amenities including local shops, post office, cafés, country pubs and restaurants are all within easy walking distance of the property. There are numerous local tourist attractions, riverside walks and scenic countryside within the immediate vicinity.

Don't forget to bring some bread along to feed the ducks by the river! The stunning coastline of Northumberland is just a short distance away. Cheviot View is the ideal base to explore all that Northumberland has to offer, from it's famous castles and award-winning beaches to walks, cycling, golf, water sports and fishing or one of the county's many attractions.

Northern England region

Northumberland is a wonderful combination of fishing villages, old market towns, endless beaches, stunning castles and of course the historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and a vast array of unique wildlife. Northumberland covers over 400 square miles, with the Northumberland National Park being the least populated of England's National Parks, much to the benefit of those visitors seeking peace and solitude.

It's an ideal haven for walkers too, with thousands of paths and tracks weaving their way through beautiful countryside, providing exhilarating fresh air and wide-open spaces for walkers and cyclists alike.

The Heritage Coastline has mile upon mile of sparkling award-winning beaches, rocky coves and picturesque fishing villages. From Berwick-upon-Tweed in the north, to Druridge Bay in the south, there are a huge number of beaches and coastal towns to explore. Popular destinations along the coastline include the horseshoe-shaped sandy beach and dunes at Beadnell Bay, the bustling village of Seahouses, with boat trips from the picturesque harbour, the kipper smokery and coastal path at Craster and the picture postcard village of Alnmouth.

Adding to the area's splendour is the multitude of magnificent castles, the most famous being Alnwick, home to the powerful Percy family and the setting for some of the Harry Potter films. There is also the spectacular, medieval Bamburgh Castle, standing high on its rocky outcrop; the brooding ruins of Dunstanburgh and pretty Warkworth.


Known locally as the Capital of Coquetdale, the traditional Northumbrian village of Rothbury is built on a sandstone hillside. It offers an excellent range of shops, with many art galleries, tea rooms, cafes and pubs. It makes a very convenient base for fishing and 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 and 29 miles from Newcastle upon Tyne. As such it has been a local centre since the 13th century and at various times had a castle, a market and magistrate's court. Nearby Cragside House and Gardens, home to Lord Armstrong is perhaps the most famous attraction in the area.

Attractions and Things To Do in Rothbury

Exploring the beautiful outdoors is definitely a theme in what there is to do in and around Rothbury. It's perfectly set up for the serious walker with the Northumberland National Park and Simonside on your doorstep. There's also plenty circular walks that have Rothbury as a starting and finishing point. The area is also excellent for the keen sports person with fishing on the River Coquet and also at nearby Fontburn Reservoir. Cragside House and Gardens, the home of Lord Armstrong is just a couple of miles away and makes a fascinating day out for all the family. Other recommended places of interest include Brinkburn Priory and Goats on the Roof.

Restaurants, Pubs and Cafes in Rothbury

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 and an Indian restaurant! The numerous cafes are extremely popular with the walkers and there is a good choice on offer here as well. There are also a number of country pubs in the Rothbury area that are worth visiting.

Shopping, Food and Supermarkets

Rothbury has an award-winning selection of local, independent shops in which you can buy practically anything from meat to shoes and wine. We have highlighted the best in independent retailers including crafts and gifts, food shops, supermarkets and clothing. There are also a number of art and crafts galleries that celebrate and sell original and local crafts.

Events in Rothbury

Rothbury Music Festival celebrates the popularity of Folk and Traditional music in the area. The Festival takes place in July each year, has been running for over thirty years and now draws musicians from around the country. Rothbury has it's own Highland Pipe Band who always open the proceedings and display their marching and plating skills. The event consumes the whole Village with many performances and ceilidh's across the weekend. Another popular event is the Rothbury and Coquetdale Walking Festival that takes place in June annually. With many walks of differing lengths and difficulty in a period of just over a week there really is something for everybody. Visit their website for more information.

Couple from Dunswell Hull, United Kingdom Jun 2016

Lovely place on arrival a welcome basket with wine,fruit etc lovely touch was a home from home weather was a bit temperamental so sky tv would have been welcomed but other than that excellent will definitely visit again and recommend

Family from Linlithgow, United Kingdom Mar 2016

We had a relaxing Easter break at the River Neuk, Rothbury. The property was clean and bright and the key pad entry system saved carrying keys about. The welcome basket and fresh flowers were much appreciated. Rothbury was a nice village with plenty of places to eat out and nice walks along the river. It is a good base for visiting other areas in Northumberland.

Couple from Lancashire, United Kingdom Nov 2015

Absolutely love this part of the world and this property is the perfect base from which to appreciate it. Can't speak highly enough of the River Neuk. I would be really proud if it was mine.

Couple from Tighes Hill, Australia Oct 2015

Possibly one of the best cottages my wife and I have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many in numerous countries. Attention to detail first class. Amenities - aside from the broken washing machine that can happen anywhere - first class. Extremely comfortable beds. Thoughtful welcome pack.Sensible dog policy. Karen told us this was her first venture into holiday tourism. Some other accommodation operators we have stayed with during our sojourn would do well to ring her for advice. Other comments. Situated smack in the middle of Rothbury so great for shops and eating out, which we didn't as the apartment has an excellent kitchen. We walked to Cragside National Trust property from River Neuk and back along the river. Good access for walking in the Cheviots and around Hadrian's Wall. All in all a most pleasing experience. Well done Karen. You should write a manual on how to do a holiday cottage correctly.

Family from Hull, United Kingdom Sep 2015

Excellent cottage in a great location. Lots of thoughtful touches making it a real home from home.

Couple from Stourport-on-severn, United Kingdom Sep 2015

Apartment was lovely. Village is lovely. But the people that live upstairs were so noisy we were woken up at 7 every day and most nights could here the crockery in the dresser bouncing as they jumped about. Otherwise we would recommend

"A well thought out comfortable cottage/flat with plenty of room" A well thought out comfortable cottage/flat conversion with plenty of room. Everything you need to make your stay just right. Nicely decorated. Close to the village centre for shops and pub/restaurants and river bank. Ideal base for going out for walks and exploring the area. No on site car parking but easily found space on the road not far from the cottage/flat so this wasnt a problem. Dog friendly which is a big plus. Also good information file provided by the owners including suggested walks, where to go and what to see.

"Lovely place to stay with a young family" We had a lovely week at River Neuk, thoroughly enjoying our first holiday as a family of four. While Johanna (3 months) would have been happy where ever we take her as long as she is with mum, Julian (2 years, 10 months) enjoyed the playground one minute walk away next to the river (and the toyshop in the village...) The apartment itself was well looked after, clean and nicely decorated, you can tell the owners really care for their property. Rothbury is a lovely village, everyone we met there was friendly and helpful, there are lovely walks right on your doorstep along the river, but aso the drive to the nearest beach is not too long and well worth it.

"Excellent choice" River Neuk is an attractive and well equipped holiday apartment, situated in the delightful village of Rothbury. The local amenities are excellent and include a supermarket, bakery and family butcher. Rothbury is also ideally located for exploring Northumberland, being in the centre of the county and hence accessible both to the coast and the Cheviot Hills. There are some lovely local walks and Cragside House (National Trust) is nearby. The owners were very helpful and efficient and the property represents good value for money.
