    About this property

    Surrounded by beautiful countryside yet within an easy drive of the coast, this cosy cottage enjoys the best of both worlds.
    Only 6 miles from the pretty market town of Rothbury with friendly tea rooms and pubs, is this charming semi-detached holiday home. Set on the Holystone Estate amongst open countryside, 700 yards from the main farmhouse. This former groundsman’s cottage has been totally renovated and has a charming sun room/dining area to maximise the surrounding view, and a cosy wood burner for those cooler evenings. Overlooking open countryside towards the stunning Northumberland National Park, Squirrel Cottage offers well-presented and attractive accommodation in a tranquil setting. This delightful cottage enjoys a rural aspect situated on a working farm near the friendly hamlet of Sharperton, found nestled within the wild and beautiful Coquet Valley. The picture windows in the sun room enhance the views in this bright, spacious room and the cosy wood burning stove is perfect after a day exploring the countryside that surrounds Squirrel Cottage.
    A charming sitting area to the front is a suntrap where you can relax and admire the views. Fly fishing for brown trout, sea trout and salmon for two rods along a private stretch of the River Coquet, can be arranged directly with the owner. Ramblers and cyclists will enjoy discovering the many bridle ways and footpaths which surround the property. The cottage is ideally located to explore the Northumberland National Park and Kielder Forest and Water which is located in the international Dark Sky Park. The picturesque heritage coastline is easily reached and Alnwick Castle is an easy and pretty drive for a day out. Cragside House and gardens is only 6 miles away in Rothbury. Squirrel Cottage is perfectly located to maximize the coast and country for day trips offering a tranquil base after your day exploring. Beach 23 miles. Shop 6 miles, pub and restaurant 4 miles.

    "beautiful views from the garden room fab sunrises and sunsets and being on the edge of a designated black sky area we had bright moons and starry skiesthe weather was kind for October"
    Confirmed guest ‐ 11 Oct 2018
    "We had an absolutely wonderful stay in Squirrel Cottage. The cottage was beautifully clean and extremely comfortable. It had everything that we needed and was perfectly located in lovely countryside. The views were wonderful and it was especially perfect at night for stargazing.Although there are no shops or pubs on the doorstep, Rothbury is only 5 miles away and this contains everything you need. What it lacks in immediate facilities, it more than makes up for in terms of perfect, walking countryside."

    "Lovely cottage, comfortable, fantastic views, ideal if you want to get away from it all."

    "Very relaxing & comfortable ."

    "Squirrel cottage is very well equipped and ideal for a weekly break and is in a stunning location, but also convenient for getting out and about within Northumbria. There are good facilities for eating out close by and the town of Rothbury has a good selection of shops to cater for any needs for your stay.It is a a bit remote in other respects but that is a smaller price to pay for such a stunning location in a very comfortable house."

    "My only wish was to have an accessible washing machine, however other than this, it was a lovely and tranquil experience. In addition, the staff, manager, and family were so helpful on the one occasion when we needed assistance. Thank you for such a fond memory, and hopefully we will be able to venture forth back here again. To those who follow us, enjoy the Coquet Valley and the warm hospitality of the people who call it home as I still do, even thirty years later having left for more distant shores.Phil (Montreal, Canada)"

    "Great cottage, fantastic location. Very impressed with the cottage. Pristine and high quality. The only negative is that the double bed mattress is as hard as granite."
    Jean ‐ 8 Jul 2018
    "Lovely well appointed cottage with fabulous views."
    BRYAN ‐ 9 Jun 2018
    "lovely but could do with being closer to amenities"
    Neil ‐ 2 Jun 2018
    "This is a fantastic cottage in a beautiful part of the country. The countryside surrounding Squirrel Cottage is spectacular and allows for some great evening walks. The cottage itself is finished and equipped to a very high standard with everything you could possibly need. The location is ideal, being close to charming Rothbury and convenient for the coast on the east and Kielder and Hadrian's Wall to the west. My only reservation would be the Friday-to-Friday rental period which is less convenient than Saturday-to-Saturday."
