We’ve stayed here a few times now. It’s centrally placed for the co-op, pubs (including a micro-pub), and plenty of walks straight from the cottage. Cragside, Wallington and Brinkburn Priory are close by, and well worth a visit, whilst Alnwick and then the coast are just a little further away but easily accessible.
The cottage itself has a good WiFi signal, it’s warm and cosy, with a lovely wood burner stove (coal and logs can be bought in Rothbury), and is always exceptionally clean. It’s COVID-19 responsibilities are clearly taken seriously, there are hand sanitisers at the front and back doors, and it has its own QR code for daily logging in. Excellent communication from Northumberland Holidays, from booking the cottage to leaving it.
Our second visit to Hyem - absolutely fabulous again. Love the modern comfort & cosy atmosphere of the cottage. Very clean & much appreciated the efforts to put out hand sanitisers. Of course the surroundings are what you truly go to Rothbury for: last time we did a lot on the coast (Holy Island & Bamburgh etc) and walked in the hills (Simonside & Cheviots). This time apart from usual wanders alongside the river flowing through the town; we went to the very close by & wonderful National Trust Cragside and Wallington; we also ventured further afield to enjoy cycling on the perfect reservoir side trails in the Kielder Forest (38 miles) and see Hadrians Wall at Housesteads (35 miles) - worth popping in to the National Landscape museum nearby too. Food/pub wise: the new Italian in Rothbury was excellent (good Covid rule following) and we couldn't resist going back to the terrific Old Boathouse restaurant on the docks/harbour at Amble. And having a beer on the Rothbury High Street in the Narrow Nick pub. Planning our next visit! Thanks.
A perfect venue for us. This ground-floor flat was spotlessly clean and had all the facilities for a comfortable stay. There was milk, bread, scones, muffins and tea-bags to welcome us in the kitchen, and a comprehensive folder in the lounge full of useful information on local attractions. Hyem is just off the main street in a quiet cul-de-sac, and we found parking easy just a short walk away. There are some good shops and pubs close by and the local Co-op (also close-by) is open every day from 7am to 10pm.
We walked to Cragside from the flat (about a mile away along the river path) and also enjoyed visits to Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Bamburgh, and Holy Island, and there are many walks around Rothbury where we climbed up to admire the views and look down on this attractive and picturesque town.
We would wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Hyem.
We have stayed in Rothbury before in one of the other apartments which was fantastic, shame it was full for when we wanted to visit, you couldn't ask for more from Rothbury it's a fantastic place everything on your doorstep but unfortunately the apartment Hyem was not as clean as we would of liked.. cobwebs the skirting boards were really dirty the bathroom I had to clean the lavatory and bath before using there was dirty marks all over walls which could of easily been painted over grease splash marks on cooker wall ,big black hand print on wall just not what we expected from the photos that are posted I have my own photos which show the dirt other than that we shall return to Roth bury with out a doubt just not in Hyem unfortunately
Excellent location. Fabulous cottage and Rothbury is a lovely working village. Everything catered for in cottage, shops and pubs and river walks. Highly recommend.
