Aln Valley Cottages are positioned a couple of miles from the picturesque village of Whittingham, which has its own Pele tower and a church which dates back to Saxon times. Ramblers and cyclists will absorb the wild and lonely vistas of this stunning location.  Enjoy a riverside picnic in the breathtaking Ingram Valley, a mere 5 miles from Grooms Cottage.  Or take a walk in Alwinton, the gateway to the most remote part of the Coquet valley, only 11 miles away.  A little further north is the Harthope valley with its dramatic crags and the private College valley too.   The owners are qualified mountain leaders and climbing instructors, so why not learn to navigate the Cheviot Hills or try rock climbing before returning at the end of an exhilarating day to the luxurious comfort of your cottage.  

The picture postcard village of Rothbury sits at the foot of the Simonside Hills only 10 miles away and offers a wide array of facilities including several shops, pubs and quaint tea rooms.  Fishing for salmon and trout on the River Coquet is a popular pastime (permits available locally) and golf can be arranged on its riverside course  The National Trust property of Cragside was the first home to be lit by hydro-electricity and the elegant house and its grounds are a popular visitor attraction close by.    

The bustling market town of Alnwick has attractive cobbled streets and is protected by its dramatic castle, the ancestral home to the Duke of Northumberland (notably famous as the film location for Harry Potter!) and offers many facilities only 8 miles east. Enjoy a visit to the superb Alnwick Garden, with its Grand Cascade Waterfall and dine in the restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe.

The Heritage coastline this area is renowned for, and designated as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is only a half hour drive east ensuring Aln Valley Cottages provide an excellent central base for exploring both the unspoilt countryside along with the golden expanses of glorious seashore too.

The cottages can be booked independently or together to accommodate up to 4 guests. The cottages have free wifi, central heating, off street parking and enjoy a sheltered courtyard overlooking the fields with BBQ and outdoor dining.

Grooms cottage is one of the BEST !


EnglandJules, England
We have just returned from a weeks stay at this GORGEOUS cottage. Upon arrival we were greeted with a bottle of red wine which we thought was a lovely touch.This cottage has everything that you could wish for in a self catering cottage, as other reviews have said there is no where close enough to walk to for anything to eat or drink but to be honest at the end of a full day sightseeing there is nothing finer than returning to this beautiful cottage and lighting the log burner and enjoying a candle lit meal in there, it is just amazing. It is set in the middle of beautiful countryside with sheep in the field next to the cottage, it was so tranquil we did not want to leave. It is not far to drive to the coast and lots of other attractions. There is great parking at the cottage which is always a bonus. The bed was lovely and comfy and the bedroom had plenty of storage too. The cottage was lovely and clean and the owners were smashing to chat to. The cottage is huge inside and all on one level apart from one small step down into the bedroom and one down into the bathroom, the bathroom is beautiful and the bath tub was lovely as was the shower and the bathroom towels were so thick and fluffy (The White Company) The only tiny thing for me was that the bedroom only had a small mirror on the top of the draws which made it very difficult when doing my hair but I did suggest to Clive the owner on the day that we left that a full length mirror in the bedroom would be great and that was the only thing that was missing in the cottage and he actually said he would put one in there at the side of the wardrobe next to the sockets which would be great. So apart from that tiny niggle Grooms Cottage is AMAZING and we would highly recommend it to anyone who wants the most tranquil holiday ever in a beautiful cozy romantic cottage !

Perfect Location and Accommodation for Romantic getaway


alidennis, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
Just stayed at this wonderful cottage for our wedding anniversary. Perfect. Close enough to local attractions if you want to explore the Coast/Castles and the Cheviot's. Cottage equipped to a very high standard and the log burning stove perfect. If you want a place to get away from it all and recharge your batteries this is it. Clive was very knowledgeable about local walking and pointed out a lovely walk a short car journey away right in the heart of the hills. We cooked each evening as there is no local pub without driving but this suited us. Wine and chocolates on arrival were a lovely surprise and put this accommodation above others. We will definitely go back and hopefully soon.

Romantic weekend


katbrown12,
Stayed for a birthday weekend, the cottage is really beautiful with the wood burner as a focal feature. The cottage has all necessary amenities for a stay including kitchen utensils, wifi, TV/DVD. Great location for walking and to travel to Alnwick and the coast. The only flaw though very slight is that the shower is not the best goes between hot and cold and not very powerful, other than this though would highly recommend.

Brilliant location, lovely cottage


StephJ500,
I spent Easter weekend in Grooms cottage and loved it. The owners were nice and even left us an Easter egg, the location was great with deer and hares running around and was very peaceful with lovely evening walks. The cottage itself was really nice. Great location for the coast, alnwick or cragside and loved the wood burning fire. I enjoyed the relaxing bath too. Only problem was the squeaky bed, it is very loud when you roll over and there's no chance of anyone sleeping through someone getting out of bed. Would happily return though and just wished I could have stayed for the week not just the weekend!

Fab cottage


GerrynOlly, Grimsby
My husband and I went for our first holiday with our three month old daughter. The cottage did not disappoint- the photos do not do the cottage it's full justice. It's tastefully decorated with plenty of space, a well thought out layout. Perfect for couples of young families (or extender families if using the cottage next door too). The cottage is well appointed and equipped for your stay; with the log stove, roll top bath and well thought out kitchen the cottage serves as an amazing home from home. The oven is programable so you know you could go out walking for the day and come home to a hearty casserole or roast and a relaxing bath and snuggle by the fire. I would definitely go back again.
