About Garden Cottage

A Northumberland getaway in the blossoming gardens of Cragside.

Stay in the house built by Victorian inventor, Lord Armstrong, on the Cragside estate. This uniquely designed cottage sits in the formal gardens of the estate where views extend over the Italian Terrace to the Coquet Valley and Simonside Hills beyond. Inside a homely space awaits, where original features and classic décor embellish the rooms. 

As a guest you’ll have free access to the Cragside gardens, house and woodlands. You’ll also have the shops, pubs and tea rooms of traditional Northumbrian village, Rothubury, nearby too.

Further afield, the Northumberland Coast AONB can be reached within a 35-minute drive. Be sure to visit Embleton Bay, a vast sandy beach with the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle providing the backdrop.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
