    About this property

    Otterburn 5 miles. Set in the small village of Rochester in the heart of the Northumberland National Park, is this charming stone property, Petty Knowes Cottage. The property has been renovated to a high standard, whilst still managing to retain some original stone walls in the snug to add a wealth of character. Be welcomed into a sitting room which has been lovingly decorated with a feature colourful wall and has plenty of seating for curling up with your loved one and unwinding in front of the 42" TV. Walk through to the open-plan kitchen/diner which has all the necessary appliances for rustling up some delicious meals and benefits from a washer/dryer so you don't have to bring your whole wardrobe with you during your trip. Gin lovers will delight in visiting this property's snug room which the owners have renovated into 'The Gin Room' and is the most characterful part of the cottage with its stone walls and sheepskin day bed. Once the evening draws to a close, retire to the king-size bedroom which has its own multi fuel stove for those colder evenings, as well as a TV so you don't have to move to watch your favourite morning shows whilst relaxing in the soft Egyptian cotton bedding. There is a bathroom with the choice of a bath or shower over and benefitting from Egyptian cotton towels and underfloor heating. To the rear of the cottage is a private decking area which comes with outdoor furniture so you can dine alfresco or simply enjoy a refreshing drink whilst watching the sunset. Guests are also welcome to use the owner’s hot tub during their stay, adding a spot of luxury to your romantic getaway. Situated in the heart of the Northumberland National Park, you can explore the rolling countryside either by walking or hiking, perfect to take you dogs along to stretch their legs. This area is also popular for cyclists and is an easy drive to Hadrian's Wall and Kielder Forest. Make sure you get involved with some watersporting activities at any one of the nearby lakes and rivers. The village of Bellingham comes with its very own golf course, ideal for beginners and professionals alike. Petty Knowes Cottage is an excellent choice for a relaxing holiday any time of the year.

    Otterburn is a village in Northumberland, England.

    "The weather was poor and I think it would be helpful to emphasise that the property can be difficult to access in icy weather. We could not get our car up the hill track to the cottage and had to park 400 metres away. Also they have a lovely "gin snug" within the cottage but there are no gin glasses or means to produce ice in the cottage. That would be an improvement. However overall we enjoyed or stay. The cottage is lovely and the location and surrounding countryside is beautiful."

    "The location offers amazing views over the surrounding area, with wonderful opportunities to watch the stars from the hot tub, as well as see the sun setting behind the hills. The cottage itself is beautifully furnished and so clean. It has everything you need and feels like a home away from home. Gordon and Joanne were so nice and always happy to help, lovely hosts. A truly special place, we would love to return."

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the owners were very friendly and keen to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. We loved evenings in front of the open fire after a relaxing soak in the hot tub. The gin snug was a lovely, unusual addition and a peaceful place to curl up with a book and a G&T. Never having visited Northumberland before, we were taken aback by the stunning scenery on our sightseeing travels. There's so much to see and do in the area. We would definitely like to come back!"

    " If you're looking for a warm 'home from home' where every attention to detail is made to ensure that you have a relaxing and comfortable stay, then this is the place for you. Cosy in the extreme, dog friendly and with far, far, far reaching views over open countryside (including from the hot-tub too), then you'll not go wrong with booking here. We're pretty hard to please but Petty Knowes was faultless and with fabulously welcoming hosts too!!! Highly recommended! "

It is actually very private and secluded so no issues. The owners are very friendly, we felt anything would be sorted if needed. They are a credit.
