Couple from Powick, United Kingdom Sep 2020

The Croft is a beautiful old house with spacious rooms and lovely views. The king-bedded room and the living room were particularly spacious, bright and well furnished. The bed was super-comfortable with really nice bedding. The two bathrooms were excellent too. The kitchen is quite small but is well-equipped. We loved sitting on the balcony looking out over the garden at the amazing view to the Simonside Hills across the valley. The cottage made a great base for a Northumbrian holiday. Cathy was a great host and made us feel very welcome.

Thank you Jill for your kind review. I am so glad that you were able to enjoy your holiday in Northumberland in this difficult year. It was so good to see people enjoying themselves again. You will always be welcome back at The Croft.

Thank you Vincent for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to have you, Brenda and your family staying at the cottage and I hope you will return sometime in the future.


Family from Loughborough, United Kingdom Oct 2019

A lovely old house with period furniture, a grand piano and some fantastic views across the valley. Walking distance into the beautiful town of Rothbury and also very close to Cragside (a highly recommended National Trust property). Further afield, an hour's drive gets you to Beamish, Lindisfarne, Durham and Jedburgh.
Cathy, our host, was friendly and helpful and had provided a delicious welcome pack with home made jam and marmalade.

Reply from Cathy

So glad you enjoyed your first visit to Northumberland and fell under the charms of Rothbury, a traditional village conveniently placed in the centre of the county and near the Northumberland National Park. You were such perfect guests and will be most welcome if you want to return to The Croft.


Couple from Carlisle, United Kingdom Jul 2019

We had a fabulous time....the area is beautiful great walks/cycles....coast close by, amazing seafood in Amble and Bamburgh...walks on Simonside Crags not to be missed.... Rothbury is friendly with great local ale it's a proper town as proper towns should be with local butchers, bakers, wool shops, deli and a hardware shop that should not be missed to name a few. But our Northumberland holiday is 5* because the Cottage was absolutely fanstastic and provided us with the perfect end and start to all our days. Thanks to our great host Cathy.

Reply from Cathy

Well what can I say to such an enthusiastic review of the area and the cottage except to say that you were also the perfect guests and I look forward to welcoming you back to The Croft whenever you plan your return visit.


Friends from Caversham, United Kingdom Jun 2019

The house was lovely with wonderful views over the Coquet Valley. We received a warm welcome from Cathy the owner and there were some tasty treats in the kitchen for us to enjoy.
It was our first visit to the area and we enjoyed it so much we have booked again for next year.
Would thoroughly recommend this property.
