Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Rothbury. We asked about what we could do locally, there wasn’t a great deal, except we did enjoy a visit to Cragside which was 5 minutes down the road.
It’s a good location for visiting other areas in Northumberland- more like a base to go out and explore. Rothbury itself is small, but pleasant. We ate at the Turks Head and that was lovely.
The pod was as expected- compact but had what we needed. The shower was powerful, there was a small kitchenette and just about enough room for a family of 4. The only downside to the pod was the fact our toddler couldn’t really sleep on the too bunk of the bed and the springs in the main bed mattress made for an uncomfortable nights sleep.
