Rothbury is at the heart of Northumberland’s countryside. This traditional market town is a peaceful and picturesque haven, which is built of the same mellow sandstone as the rolling hills that surround it.
Enjoy the scenery with the many walking and cycling routes around the town, and take in the beautiful River Coquet
meandering through the centre. Due to its location, Rothbury is an ideal base for exploring Northumberland and all it has to offer, including Simonside Hills
, the Cheviot Hills
, and Northumberland National Park
Visit Cragside House, Gardens and Estate
, an impressive Victorian building described as ‘a palace of the modern magician’. Once home to Lord Armstrong, inventor and industrialist, this building and its gardens will keep you busy, even offering you the chance to see red squirrels.
Once you’ve appreciated the landscape and the wildlife, you can always relax at the many shops, pubs, and tea rooms on Rothbury’s bustling high street.
