Two romantic cottages with four poster beds, situated in the idyllic Vale of Whittingham, at the foot of the Cheviot Hills, on the fringe of Northumberland National Park, and close to Alnwick and the stunning beaches and iconic castles of the Northumbrian Coast.

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.
