Overview

Roses Bower is a 200 acre working sheep farm, alongside the banks of the Warksburn, within the Northumberland National Park. The spectacular ‘Roaring Hole’ waterfall, located directly below the farm, is the final destination of sea trout and salmon. Downstream from the farm is the famous ‘Long Drop’ (the highest perched ‘Netty’ in England) and the now derelict Low Roses Bower, reputedly the home of Rosamund Dodd, who fell in love with a Charlton Chieftain in Reiving times and needed a discreet lovers nest. The Warksburn, teeming with wildlife, is breathtakingly beautiful and wonderfully peaceful.  Roses Bower Lodge is a cosy two bedroom cottage, sleeping four. The Lodge is equipped with full central heating,log burner, electric cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, washer/drier, satellite television and hi-fi/DVD. The private garden looks out over the Warksburn. Egyptian cotton towels and linen are provided. Kitchen and bathrooms are stocked with basics and a generous ‘welcome pack’. Roses Bower is an ideal centre for walkers, golfers, cyclists, fishermen and bird watchers and of course for those who simply wish to relax. Well behaved pets are welcome. The farm is progressively improving it's eco-friendly credentials with recycling, a biomass heating system, it's own power generation facility and eco friendly household products. The farm is in an upland agri-environmental stewardship scheme.

Our best vacation ever


Godelief, Kessel-Lo, Brabant, Belgium
We spent 2 weeks (13-27 July 2013) at Roses Bower farm with our 2 kids, Liesl (almost 18) and Jomme (almost 16). It was just perfect: our daughter, who is not into walking but loves animals, stayed at the farm and was allowed to help while we were out walking and visiting interesting places. We all helped cleaning the barn, enjoyed seeing Will klipping the sheep and we helped rolling the fleeces. The weather was very un-English: 2 weeks of perfect weather: not too hot and only ten drops of rain. Susan, Lewis, Claire and Will are fantastic ghosts and the cottage is the very best we ever stayed in. We really hope to come back and we can recommend it to everybody looking for a quiet, wonderful place to stay.

Our "second home".


Sheila L, Doncaster
We have been regulars at Roses Bower Farm each August for the last 7 or so years! We absolutely LOVE it. We're not the only ones to return year after year. The Visitors Book is full of returning guests and everything written in that book is positive. Guests want for nothing, and if there's something a guest thinks should be useful Lewis and Susan make every effort to provide it (within reason of course!). Our two girls (now aged 14 and 18) have had many experiences over the years: feeding the lambs, horse riding, grooming and mucking out, "poo picking" (after the horses!) and generally having fun. We call Roses Bower our "second home" as that is how it feels to us. There is everything we need (and more) in a superb location and no matter what the weather we never come away disappointed. Although Roses Bower is a working sheep farm (well behaved) dogs are welcome - which is also ideal as we have a dog and wouldn't dream of taking a holiday where he was not included. If you're looking for a wonderfullly relaxing, idylic self catering holiday surrounded by sheep, horses and wild-life, plus magnificant views over the surrounding countryside and National Forest, then Roses Bower is a must! P.S. If there had been a score of "in excess of excellent" then I would have given that as my overall rating for Roses Bower. Oh, and we're booked for THIS August also!

Roses Bower Cottage Wark

We took a week at Roses Bower with our 2 kids 13 and 10 and 2 dogs, whippet and terrier. There was everything there in the cottage for a wonderful self catering holiday. Lovely walking from the back door. Kids could not wait to go to bed to experience using the electric balnkets.Bliss!! It was definately a restful place for us all. Top quality accommodation in a beautiful place.

Wonderful location,wonderful accommodation,wonderful people


FANCYCleckheaton, CLECKHEATON
We've been visiting Roses Bower each year for about six years,sometimes twice in one year.The farmhouse is the best accommodation we have stayed in,everything is provided including a very generous welcome pack.The location is superb and there are plenty of walks and places of interest to visit. This is a working farm and although Lewis and Susan are very busy people nothing is too much trouble for them.We hope by making these comments we won't make it difficult for ourselves when booking in future. Looking forward to seeing Lewis and Susan again in May and all the new lambs. Joan and Tom Forster

Relaxation in beautiful surroundings


philmatthews, Chester, United Kingdom
Roses Bower is the most tranquil place that my wife and myself have stayed in Northumberland. The quality of the accomadation is superb as are Lewis and Susan, our hosts. Set on the edge of the Kielder Forest and by the side of a waterfall at Wark Burn, it is ideal for just strolling the fields or for used as a base for exploring the glorious countryside of Northumberland and the Natinal Park. We will be making our third visit at the end of April and cannot wait.
