Great property in a lovely area. The driveway is a little challenging as is the walk back from the pub in the evening. Cathy is very friendly and informative.

So glad you enjoyed your Northumberland holiday Lindsey. Sorry about the inbuilt exercise regime! I can only say that it gets easier with time. The secret is to stop frequently to admire the views.

The Croft is a fantastic period property which retains many original features but the owner has updated it to provide the ultimate comfort for their guests. The house never felt cold, the bed was really comfortable and the shower was powerful and made you feel refreshed every morning. The house is on the outskirts of Rothbury, high on the hillside which offers beautiful views from the Cragside estate over to the Simonside Hills. A beautiful spot and situated within it's own private gardens which meant that the only sound we heard was birdsong. The sun pours in through the Victorian windows and we sat eating dinner in the evening watching the sun fade across the hills. The garden is perfectly secure for your dog with many walks straight from the door and the village was only a short walk down the hill. The owners live next door but are totally unobtrusive. We had a fantastic week staying at the Croft. The peace and tranquillity was exactly what we needed. Thank you Cathy, for all of the extras you provided which made our stay extra special.

Family from Manchester, United Kingdom Aug 2017

We found The Croft to be a very comfortable well equipped holiday home, the garden, terrace and views were fabulous and the house easily accommodated 4 adults. The area is nice with plenty of shops and places to eat in the village and is in a great position for exploring the area. The owner left us a lovely welcome pack and is a very friendly lady & called round to welcome us. I would highly recommend the Croft

Couple from Chislehurst , United Kingdom Aug 2017

We've stayed at The Croft before, and came back because of it's great location overlooking Rothbury with views towards the hills opposite. The Croft is well equipped for a self-catering holiday and we hope to return again in the future. Onsite parking is fine, and it is a 10 - 15 minute walk into town. Highly recommended.

Thank you Peter for your kind review - so glad you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to seeing you and Glenis again soon.

Couple from Nottingham, United Kingdom Jul 2017

Lovely, comfortable cottage situated in a beautiful location.

Everything you could possibly need for a pleasant stay was available in the accommodation and Kathy, the owner, was very welcoming and made it clear that she was on hand if we needed anything else.

Croft Cottage, with its wonderful established garden and patio area, was the best holiday accommodation we have found in the Rothbury area. We'll most certainly plan a return trip.
