This ’chocolate box’ cottage oozes charm and character, and has a lovely multi-fuel burner in the living area, ensuring a cosy welcome retreat regardless of the season.

Enjoy a riverside picnic in the breathtaking Ingram Valley, only a short drive away, or take a walk in Alwinton, the gateway to the most remote part of the Coquet Valley, only 12 miles away. A little further north is the Harthope Valley with its dramatic crags and the privately owned College Valley.

    Frankel Cottage is located close to the edge of the dramatic landscape across the Northumberland National Park making this a perfect base for walkers and cyclists or those who simply enjoy being outdoors. The picturesque village of Rothbury straddles the banks of the trout-rich River Coquet and is nestled between the Simonside and Lordenshaw Hills. There are many facilities available here including shops, pubs, tea rooms and an 18-hole golf course along the river bank. The National Trust owned ’Cragside’ is within easy reach and well worth a visit. The historic market town of Alnwick is only 7 miles away and offers a wide range of amenities including Barter Books, one of the largest second-hand book shops within the UK. Alnwick Garden and Alnwick Castle are popular visitor attractions too. The Heritage coastline, recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is only a short drive east making Frankel Cottage an excellent base to discover the wild and lonely hills with easy access to wide stretches of golden sandy beaches too. Beach 12 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub 2½ miles and restaurant 7 miles.

    We booked the cottage last minute to have a couple of days to explore lively Northumberland and were not disappointed. Wish we could have stayed for longer.

    Beautiful holiday Cottage in a stunning location. No amenities in Village which is ok from our point of view, but some people might need a pub/ shop. Appreciate cottage is old (used to have one myself!) and layout has been adapted to incorporate downstairs bathroom and extra bedroom, but if travelling with small children and having them sleep downstairs to the rear of the property may be an issue. Also, main living area could do with a rejig - sofa too far away from beautiful fire (particularly when we stayed as the weather was freezing), so we moved sofa to front of stove and it worked well, also when sitting around the table it was difficult to squeeze passed person sitting next to the cooker - not a huge issue but maybe a rearrange to define separate areas....living, dining and kitchen. Also, suggest a bench to the front of the property, as although it was cold it would have been lovely to sit out and look over the green. All in all a beautiful, clean and well maintained property.

    Lovely cosy cottage, if you want to get away from it all this is the place, do t expect wifi but it does state that when you book, had everything we needed it does need a notice up to let you know to switch immersion heater on for hot water, other than that no complaints whatsoever.

    The cottage is perfectly situated for great walks and cycling. There is somewhere dry to store at least 2 bikes and is extremely convenient for exercising a dog(s). The bedrooms are a good size with plenty of hanger space. The kitchen is small but how much complicated cooking does one want to do on holiday. Just watch Rachel Khoo work in her Paris flat ! We knocked out full English breakfasts with little difficulty. Try the local Craster kippers . The living room with its multi fuel burner is very cosy on a cool/cold night. Accept there is no wifi. It is a rural village in beautiful scenery. Don't waste your time on the internet . Also it is interesting to hear your phone ping as you travel in and out of reception areas. Sadly the local pub closed years ago. This is a place to stay that puts you in the heart of the fantastic Northumbrian countryside where everyone is genuinely very welcoming. If you want the facilities of a large urban area try Birmingham!

    Frankel Cottage is quaint and cosy. However, it should be noted that there is no phone signal unless on Vodafone and there is no Wifi installed at the cottage. This means that unless you want to be completely cut off from the outside world, it is not for people who are in need of contact with family or for business. The property listing also states that all the accommodation is on the ground floor but two of the bedrooms are upstairs. The cottage is situated in a small village which has no amenities so therefore you have to drive out a fair way for whatever you need. The fridge is too small to hold a good supply of food due to being out in the sticks and the cooker is in an odd and fairly dangerous position. The plus points are that the cottage is quiet, the woodburner is lovely and the bed was comfortable. There are lots of places to visit including Cragside, Alnwick and the National Park. The beaches are beautiful especially Alnmouth but in terms of locality, be prepared for lots of driving. It would have been nice to have been provided with milk etc on arrival and the fridge switched on as we have found at many other cottages we have stayed in. Unfortunately we wouldn't stay here again unless wifi was provided but that is just because we run two businesses and missed out on valuable revenue.

    We had a lovely stay at Frankel Cottage and would love to stay there again. The house is in a lovely village near woodlands and streams so ideal for dog walking. It is close to Alnwick and Bamburgh beach so very well situated. The house itself was comfortable although the kitchen was quite small and basic. There was no WiFi which in some ways was good but meant we had to drive into town to make phone calls and receive emails. Other than that, it was perfect.
