Friends from Perth, United Kingdom Dec 2021

We were delighted to be able to return to "The Croft" for a week this Christmas. The owner, Cathy, had the house beautifully decorated for Christmas and we had a lovely welcome pack to enjoy on our arrival.
The beds are extremely comfortable and the house was warm and clean.
We really enjoyed spending time relaxing by the log burner which was most welcome as the weather was a bit dull, damp and cool.
Thank you Cathy.....we shall return.

So glad you enjoyed your second visit to The Croft during the festive season. You are such perfect guests and will always be welcome at the cottage.

The Croft is a warm and comfortable house in a lovely location. The house is thoughtfully and well equipped to a high standard with all that is needed for a cottage holiday. The generous welcome pack was much appreciated. Would definitely stay at The Croft again.

Thank you for your review. We have used the vacant weeks in Nov/Dec to make minor upgrades to the shower room and kitchen which I hope will improve our guests experience. Hope to see you again some time.


Couple from Nottingham, United Kingdom Oct 2021

The Croft, warm, comfortable, well-equipped and spacious, is well placed on the hillside above Rothbury for great views of Simonside and the Coquet river.
We enjoyed walks straight from the front door both easy and challenging, long and short and many more within a twenty minute drive. Already booked our 2022 week!

Many thanks Vince for your informative review of The Croft. Will be delighted to see you back next year. Hope you get some good walking weather.


Friends from Brompton, Northallerton, United Kingdom Sep 2021

Property in perfect location with superb views from rooms and lovely terrace. Older style of flooring furnishing downstairs but modern bathrooms. Comfortable beds. Main bedroom is lovely , light and spacey
Entrance hall with stone flooring perfect for our dogs . Steep driveway not an issue in September.
There is a separate downstairs loo too which was an added bonus.
Owner very friendly on arrival and when we had a question.

We really enjoyed staying at Croft Cottage. Very well placed for exploring the surrounding hills and the lovely coastline. The Cottage was spacious and well equipped. Highly recommend.

Thanks for your review Steve. So glad you enjoyed your holiday exploring the Northumbrian hills and our fabulous unspoiled coast.


Family from Norwich, United Kingdom Jul 2021

Gorgeous in every respect. Property beautiful. Views breathtaking. Area beautiful and interesting. Rothbury has a little of everything and is mere minutes walk away. The owner is friendly, responsive, on hand if you need her, but.mostly invisible. We were delighted - one of the best, if not THE best, we have ever stayed in. We”ve already booked to go back next year!

Reply from Cathy

Always delighted when people fall in love with Rothbury and Coquetdale. Thank you for your lovely review and I look forward to welcoming you all back next year.
