Worth a visit!
Brackenlea cottage is just wonderful! The cottage itself is well presented and the owner Sean was very helpful before and during our booking. The kitchen had everything needed for a short stay, the beds were comfy and the living room was cosy with the fan heater fireplace. The large selection of books and DVDs were a bonus as were the welcome crisps and biscuits after a drive from London. The village is very small (the nearest shop is about 8 miles away) so come prepared for your stay where possible. The local pub opens in the evenings only, we popped in for a drink but no food is served here. The walk to Drakes Stone was a nice way to pass an hour or two and the views are lovely. We would highly recommend this cottage and would definitely visit again (maybe during summer when the rain will not lessen the chances of star gazing so much).

Beautiful and peaceful, just what we needed
Brackenlea cottage is cosy, comfortable and well appointed. The village of Harbottle is beautiful and peaceful. Two doors up there is a delightful pub/papershop/information centre that also sells local homemade jams. There are good pub restaurants no more than 10 minutes drive away and the view from Harbottle Crag is beautiful. We spent a lot of time walking and sitting by the River Coquette in nearby Coquettedale. Our retriever also enjoyed swimming there. The coast is between 30 and 45 minutes away, but the scenery throughout is breathtaking. We will stay again soon.

The cottage was very cosy, well decorated and well equipped. An ideal base to explore the surrounding area. I would definitely book the cottage again.

One of the Best!
A very tasteful conversion of this end of terrace property in a lovely quiet village handy for many Northumberland attractions and walks. Warm, cosy and refurbished to a high standard and perhaps one of the best self catering accommodations we have used.

A beautifully decorated and warm cottage in a quiet setting with opportunities for lots of walking and cycling.
