The area around Harbottle is perfect for outdoor activities. There is abundant walking, fishing, horse riding, and cycling in the beautiful Cheviot Hills, a Nature Reserve on the doorstep and warm and welcoming pubs nearby to relax in. The views around the cottage are simply stunning and one of the very best walks in the region starts on your own doorstep; up to the mysterious Drake Stone, past Harbottle Lake and through the woods down into Alwinton, before returning on the other side of the river back to Harbottle.
The cottage is also ideally placed for the attractions of Cragside, Alnwick Castle & Alnwick Garden, Kielder Water, Kielder Forest and Hadrians Wall, as well as the stunning Northumberland Heritage Coast which is less than an hour's drive. The Northumberland towns of Rothbury, Alnwick, Morpeth and Otterburn are all within easy distance of Brackenlea.
But for those looking to relax in the great outdoors, there is no better place in England - The Northumberland National Park is a place where mobile phones will rarely ring and you can walk, cycle or fish all day in beautiful surroundings and hardly see a soul. Brackenlea Cottage is also located within the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park, Europe’s largest area of protected night sky. Due to its pristine skies it was awarded gold tier designation by the International Dark Sky Association, making it officially the best place in England for people to go to enjoy the heavens.
