Description

Don't be fooled too much by the traditional cottage name, Rosebud. Yes, it is full of English rose charm, but this holiday home close to the Northumberland National Park packs designer pieces, bold contemporary colours and a relaxed luxury ambience into its lovely old Northumberland stone cottage shell - add in the roses in the garden for that touch of romance that every old cottage deserves, and we have a property with real up-to-the-minute appeal.

With its beautiful exposed roof trusses and rural location, Rosebud is a charming two-bedroom cottage just 20 minutes drive from Bamburgh and the coast. But what is most striking about its location is its proximity to the National Park with its unique dark sky status. Think uninterrupted views of starry nights from either of Rosebud's two gardens and the chance to see the Northern Lights at certain optimal times of the years.

Inside you'll find generous spaces for a family of four or a couple looking to unwind and explore the region and lots of interesting homely and personal touches. There are countryside views and walks all around, including the popular St Cuthbert's Way walk, and close by are the villages of Chatton with its gastro pub and Belford with its farm shop and deli.

Reviews

Idyllic. A sanctuary from the fast paced activities surrounding last weekend - our wedding! The perfect place to reconnect with ourselves, each other and the beautiful Northumberland countryside and beaches.

Past Customer,

This has been the best holiday I've ever had. The cottage was styled to suit our taste, there were many sweet, thoughtful touches and our children (1 & 3) were well catered for and welcome here.

Past Customer,

It was gorgeous and not so far from the coast. We thought it was going to be more remote but we did the journey in the car to Bamburgh , Craster and Seahouses almost every day and it was nothing really. It was always nice to come back to Rosebud in the evenings. Recommend the Sunnyhills deli and restaurant at Belford. We went there four times in the week!

Past Customer,

What an amazing stay! It was just perfect for us and our young children (1 + 4). My four year old son in particular was extremely grateful for all the wonderful toys and jigsaws. Everything we could have hoped for!

Past Customer,

A wonderful stay in the well-equipped Rosebud. Grateful for the toys, games and books, and comfy sofas.

Past Customer,

Location

Part of the original farm steading for the neighbouring Grade II listed Hetton Hall, Rosebud is surrounded by open countryside but set within the small hamlet of fellow converted farm buildings. From the site, you have lovely views of the Cheviot hills within the Northumberland National Park to the west. Rosebud is very close to the popular St Cuthbert's Way walk, with St Cuthbert's Cave being very close by. The villages of Belford and Chatton are a few minutes away by car and the coastal centres of Bamburgh and Seahouses are a 15-20 minute drive away.
