In a tranquil, rural position and surrounded by stunning open views, this lovely Grade II listed 18th century cottage boasts an abundance of character. The original exposed beams and a large inglenook stone fireplace housing a wood-burning stove in the lounge, ensures this is a cosy cottage whatever the season! The enclosed garden to the rear overlooks the dramatic landscape across the Northumberland National Park - excellent for a spot of relaxation.... Pennywells Cottage sits in the welcoming hamlet of Alnham, only 6 miles from Whittingham and 2 miles from Netherton. The picturesque village of Rothbury, found nestled at the foot of the Simonside and Lordenshaw Hills, straddles the banks of the trout and salmon rich River Coquet, where a licence and permit for fishing can be obtained locally, and is a popular destination for walkers and cyclists, 9 miles away. Rothbury offers many facilities including several quaint tea rooms, pubs, charming shops and a riverside 18 hole golf course. The 1,000 acres estate of Cragside, once home to Lord Armstrong, and the first home in the world to be lit by hydroelectricity is an interesting National Trust visitor attraction. The bustling market town of Alnwick, dominated by its majestic castle is often referred to as 'The Windsor of the North' and is the ancestral home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter's Hogwarts Academy!). The 'Alnwick Garden', with its spectacular Grand Cascade Waterfall and restaurant incorporated within the largest tree house in Europe, is a popular tourist attraction, 14 miles east. A warm welcome awaits guests in the market town of Wooler, snuggled at the foot of the Cheviot Hills and where the challenging route of the St Cuthbert's Way delights cyclists and walkers, 14 miles north. The Heritage coastline this area is proud to have recognised as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is less than 20 miles east making Pennywells Cottage an excellent base for exploring the many delights across north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders alike.
