Hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed today's visit in the May sunshine. The priory is small and beautifully formed in a stunning riverside setting. An hour is sufficient time to enjoy your visit, there are benches and grassy areas so take a picnic and enjoy.

Incredibly atmospheric and inspiring and tranquil, tucked away in a small oasis by the river coquet. This little gem is situated off the lower Rothbury Road which in itself is off the Coldstream Road (A697). Not sure young children would appreciate what's on offer, but...More

I have not done self catering before. I think I was seriously spoiled at Brinkburn. Lovely property, very well kitted out with everything you might need, plus loads of extras like limitless wood for the stove, and wonderful bread and supplies when we arrived. The...More
