Brackenlea Cottage

Northumberland National Park

4 Star Rating Brackenlea Cottage is a charming Northumberland stone cottage located in the peaceful, pretty and friendly village of Harbottle in The Northumberland National Park, nestling in the beautiful hills of Upper Coquetdale.
It offers cosy and contemporary accommodation in the heart of the southern Cheviot Hills. It was fully renovated and restyled in the Summer of 2015.

The cottage is ideally placed for the attractions of Alnwick Castle and Alnwick Garden, Cragside House, Gardens & Estate, Kielder Water & Forest Park and Hadrians Wall, as well as the stunning Northumberland Coast, Lindisfarne and the Scottish Borders.

Built in the early 19th century, Brackenlea has undergone total refurbishment to provide luxurious accommodation whilst retaining its traditional Northumbrian character.

Harbottle village is at the heart of the Upper Coquet Valley and is within The Northumberland National Park. The Coquetdale area is best known as Walking Country, with the vast expanse of the Cheviot Hills and the stunning views over the valleys of the River Coquet for all to enjoy.
The cottage is just minutes away from the ruins of the historic 12th century medieval Harbottle Castle, Harbottle Crags and the mysterious Drake Stone.

The area around Harbottle is perfect for outdoor activities, with endless walking and cycling in the untamed landscape of the Cheviot Hills. The area is famous for its rounded shaped hills that include bridleways and footpaths offering a number of interesting routes for walkers and mountain bikers.
Adventurous guests can try to climb The Cheviot, which at 815 metres is the highest point in the National Park. The nearby Breamish Valley is also a popular destination for visitors, with a number of walks into the hills, local river side picnic areas and a number of hillfort archaeological sites that include Neolithic and Bronze Age burials, medieval villages, farmsteads, hillforts and a very scenic waterfall at Linhope Spout.

For those looking to chill out there is no better place in England, a place where mobile phones won't ring and you can walk, ride or fish all day in beautiful surroundings and not see a soul. There is an illustrated description of a wonderful walk direct from the cottage doorstep here. This walk is rated as one of the Northumberland National Park ranger's favourites.

The Northumberland towns of Alnwick, Morpeth, Rothbury, Otterburn, Bellingham, Belford, Wooler, Seahouses, Craster and Beadnell are all within easy distance of Brackenlea.
