Description

This lovely detached house, tucked away behind the main street in this historic Northumbrian coastal village, provides comfortable accommodation and modern amenities including high-speed internet, in a picturesque setting. Warkworth itself is almost completely encircled by the River Coquet, and is dominated by the splendid mediaeval castle perched high on a mound only 200 yards from Rookery Nook Cottage. Half a mile up river is the famous Hermitage, a rock-hewn retreat with a very poignant history; it is quite unique in England and can only be reached by a guided rowing boat.  Being within walking distance of a superb stretch of sandy beach and having some of the most lovely river scenery in the county, it is not surprising that Warkworth is a popular holiday location.  The village is well served by pubs, restaurants and a patisserie, there is also a well-stocked village store and Post Office a short walk from the cottage.  Alnwick, 5 miles to the North, it is home to the Duke of Northumberland and famous for its Castle and garden, open to the public, both have featured in films and television.  Alnwick is also home to Barter Books, a huge second hand bookshop set inside an old Victorian railway station.   Amble 2 miles south, has a marina and offers local shops, harbour village, award winning ice cream palour, fishing trips and weekend markets. Excellent golf is available in Warkworth itself and at several courses along the coast..
