Visit Rothbury and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Rothbury, Northumberland. Few villages in the county have a longer history than Rothbury, which can trace its origins to long before the Norman Conquest. It spreads over the banks along the narrowing Coquet valley and makes an ideal centre for touring, walking, or fishing for trout and salmon. The Simonside Hills stretch to the South.
The ruins of Cartington Castle stand 3½ miles to the North West. Across the river is Whitton. Other such fortifications stand at Tosson and Hepple. Lordenshaws Camp, a well-preserved hill-fort, is also nearby. Rothbury has a cheerful atmosphere suitable to its reputation as a healthful summer resort. The main street, lined with sycamores, cuts through a sloping green with shops and houses above and below it. To the West of town, a row of benches beside the road encourages travellers to linger over the view across the Coquet to the Simonsides. Lord Armstrong, the inventor and engineer who died at Cragside in 1900, is commemorated in the chancel screen of the parish church.
