Brackenlea Cottage is in a wonderful stunning location a real get away from it all place . The cottage was immaculate upon our arrival and the owners had left crisps ,biscuits and chocolates which we thought was very lovely touch . Everything you need is there , a real home from home . Brackenlea Cottage
also a great base to explore Northumberland and there is plenty to explore a week wasn't long enough wish we had booked two ! Can't wait to go again and would definitely book the same cottage in such a fab location .

“Great place to be based with easy access to the coast and a range of wonderful areas to walk with the dog.”

A lovely cosy house set in a small rural village with a very friendly pub next door.The house had everything that was needed for a quiet weeks stay in a beautiful part of the country. There was plenty of information on local guides and things to do during our stay. There were plenty of local walks which we went on with the dog and the house was great place for the dog to settle down in as well. Definitely a place we would base ourselves in again.

Fully functional cottage was just idyllic, everything there, even a lovely welcome basket. Bedrooms spacious, everything we were looking for; all spotlessly clean. Plenty to do and see and loads of helpful leaflets etc. Bar and restaurant not too far, country house hotel within a couple of miles.

“The Perfect Country Retreat”
Reviewed May 30, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Brackenlea is the ideal country getaway. The town of Harbottle couldn't be more picturesque nestled in the foothills of the drakestone, within the borders of the national park. The cottage is excellently equipped with a treasure trove of information to keep even the most experienced of explorers busy, the OS explorer maps were great for finding the best trails. About a 20 minute drive from the cottage is Cragside (free for national trust members) a stunning example of a 19th century manor surrounded by some of the most stunning grounds I'd ever seen. Accompanied with a maze several lakes and cafe there's something there for everyone. All in all our stay at Brackenlea couldn't have been better and I would recommend it to everyone, I'll certainly be booking it again one day.

An excellent cottage in a convenient and beautiful location. Clean and tidy, really well equipped and very comfortable. Lots of walks nearby and the lovely town of Rothbury is easy to get to (The Narrow Nick micro pub is great!). Will definitely stay here again.

“Beautiful cottage in a truly idyllic spot”
Reviewed April 6, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have spent a fantastic week at Brackenlea. A beautifully presented, immaculate cottage which comfortably accommodates a family of 4. Sean even offered to split the king size bed into 2 singles for our 2 children which was really thoughtful. The cottage was so clean and well equipped, we didn't need to use the extra things we brought along with us. So many little extra touches to help the holiday run smoothly and feel like home from home such as hairdryer, iron and clothes airer, cleaning products, tea towels and cloths and a nice little welcome pack. Thank you for thinking of these things, they really do make such a difference!

We enjoyed fabulous walks to the Drake Stone and Harbottle castle from the front door. The friendly farmer up the road invited the children to come back to feed the lambs, how lovely! The quaint little pub/shop next door serves local ales and the yummy Hepple gin, definitely worth a try! We bought a bottle to take home from Thropton shop.
The cottage is set in idyllic surroundings with stunning views from all around and is well placed to enjoy trips out to the coast, walks in the national park/Cheviots, Cragside, Hadrian's Wall and Kielder. We packed so much into a week here but feel that there is still so much to discover. Very sad to leave but this is one place we will endeavour to return to.
