Rothbury is in the centre of Northumberland and is therefore an ideal base for exploring. It’s just 30 minutes to the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three minutes to the hills. Why not stay in a Rothbury Self Catering accommodation to make the most of your stay. From Rothbury you can explore the surrounding Simonside Hills and Cheviot Hills and all of Northumberland National Park. Walkers and cyclists will love the spectacular countryside.

Close by is Cragside House, Gardens and Estate, former home of the Victorian industrialist Lord Armstrong situated about two miles from Rothbury and worth a visit at anytime of the year.
