With a twin room and a double bedroom, this is an ideal property for a small family, a group of friends or two couples to enjoy a few days of walking and sight seeing.

Set in an isolated position on the edge of the Northumberland National Park is this charming, stone built cottage, just three miles from Otterburn and seven miles from Bellingham. This wonderful, single-storey property is peacefully located in the surrounding countryside whilst the open-plan living area and delightful lawned garden with patio are the perfect accommodation for a relaxing break. There are great facilities for fishing, horse riding and golf nearby, as well as Hadrian’s Wall and a variety of beautiful National Trust homes and gardens.


A lovely well equipped cottage, situated in stunning countryside. The owners who live nearby were really friendly and helpful, but not in any way intrusive.
Mr Plant

Drovers Rest was clean, well kept and comfortable. The property owners was helpful and friendly.
Miss Hall

The views from the garden are stunning and the peace and quiet is delightful.
Mrs Mason

The cottage was lovely, clean and well appointed. there were flowers and a packet of biscuits waiting for us on our arrival. The heating system was excellent. The hosts were very friendly and left you to do your own thing but were very approachable for help and advice. Although the fridge in the cottage has a small freezer the hosts were very willing to share their large freezer with you. The surrounding area was the beautiful Northumbrian countryside. Less than 20 miles to the seaside and many places of interest easily accessible. The local pub (1 Mile approx. away) does excellent food and drink. The local village shop (3 mile approx. away) is well stocked and offers a dining area offering cooked food etc. There is an Otterburn Mill outlet selling clothing and gifts is in the village also offering snack food. We loved the peace and tranquillity of the area and the friendliness of the residents and would recommend a visit.

The hosts were very friendly and would have done anything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. They left us alone to our own devices but were there for advice and help if necessary. The area it is in is outstandingly beautiful in our opinion.
