Garden Cottage is a charming single-storey cottage suitable for couples situated on a working farm in the picturesque hamlet of Edlingham. The accommodation is very well presented throughout and enjoys beautiful open views across countryside. Lumbylaw Farm is nestled equidistant between Rothbury to the west and the historic market town of Alnwick to the east, both being 6 miles. Edlingham has its own medieval castle and 12th-century church. This beautiful location is regularly used in TV and film sets; it is the location of one of ’The Hobbit’ films promotional posters, and some scenes for the ITV drama series, ’Beowulf’, were also filmed here.
A short drive west brings you to Rothbury, snuggled at the foot of the Simonside and Lordenshaw Hills. It straddles the banks of the trout and salmon-rich River Coquet, where a licence and permit for fishing can be obtained locally. This is a popular destination for cyclists and walkers. Known as the ‘gateway to the Northumberland National Park’, there are many amenities available including tea rooms, pubs, shops and a riverside 18-hole golf course.
The National Trust site of Cragside, once home to Lord Armstrong and the first home to be lit by hydro-electricity sits within 1000 acres and is an interesting visitor attraction, only 4 miles west of Garden Cottage.
The bustling market town of Alnwick boasts its own dramatic castle, which is home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film academy for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy) has a wide array of facilities, 6 miles east. Visit Alnwick Gardens with its spectacular cascade waterfall and restaurant incorporated within the largest tree house in Europe.
This is an excellent choice for those seeking a homely tranquil base with lovely rural views and gives easy access to explore the beautiful 20-mile stretch of heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the east and the wild and lonely expanses of the heather-capped Cheviot Hills to the west. Shop and restaurant 6 miles, pub 5 miles.
Garden Cottage can be booked together with Lumbylaw Cottage (UK3022) to accommodate up to 8 guests.
