The Malt House is a stone built property located in the beautiful village centre and offers warm, comfortable accommodation for up to five guests in three bedrooms. The deceptively spacious property offers a modern interior including an entrance hallway with downstairs WC, fully fitted dining kitchen with gas hob and electric oven, washing machine, microwave and fridge freezer along with a dining table and chairs.
The spacious lounge comfortably seats five people with large patio doors. There is a twin bedroom, double bedroom, single room and family bathroom. Outside there and to the rear there is a small private courtyard. To the front there is off road parking.
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.

Beautifully well equipped cottage that's definitely a home away from home. Perfectly situated in the heart of the village and all its amenities.
We had a most enjoyable stay in this lovely house. The location is excellent - a good base from which to explore beautiful Northumberland and with all the convenience of a village location. Despite being in the village, the house is very tranquil as it is just tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. There are lovely walks from the property along the riverside including a walk to nearby Cragside which is well worth a visit as are Alnwick and the Garden and the coast a short drive away. A bonus is the opportunity for a day trip to Edinburgh from Alnmouth - about a 30 minute drive to the station, with free parking and an hour on the train to Edinburgh Waverley, taking you straight into the centre.
A very comfortable and cozy house with everything you need close by. The welcome gift was very well received and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you
Our family of 3 adults and 2 children stayed in this accommodation over the October half term break 2014 for 5 nights whilst visiting key sites local to the cottage in Northumbria.
We had a lovely time. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a welcome bottle of wine and chocolate cake which was a lovely touch. The cottage had all the modern amenities required for a self-catering stay, and was conveniently located in the centre of the lovely village of Rothbury, with only a 2 minute walk to the local convenience store, and a choice of several delightful village pubs.
Lovely walks into the countryside are just on the doorstep and the cottage is within easy reach of local attractions such as Alnwick Castle (15 minutes max) and Seahouses (for the seal cruise) and Holy Island to name a few.
Highly recommended and we will certainly return should we wish to visit Northumbria again in the future.
Modern property in the centre of Rothbury in a quiet location. The owner seemed to have thought of most things for a comfy stay. Good cooking facilities. Range of shops locally very good all within easy walking distance. No need to travel to shop for your groceries. If you prefer to eat out there several options, more pub food than restaurant, but good none the more. Again within easy walking distance. We liked Rothbury, on our travels around the area we did not see anything any better.
