Stylish village living in a unique Northumberland setting near Morpeth
Rothbury is a thriving centre in a stunning rural location in the heart of the Coquet Valley. Twelve miles from Alnwick, this ancient village is built on a sandstone hillside, overlooking the river Coquet. The Northumberland National Park is on the doorstep, and the majestic Simonside hills are a magnet for walkers. For birdwatchers, the nearby Caistron fishing lake and nature reserve is an endless delight, with more than 180 species. But it’s not just the joys of the countryside that make this place so special.

Life in harmony
Above all, a Robertson Home offers space and fluidity. We build rooms which flex around the needs of your family. Open plan kitchen and dining areas keep the family together, with vaulted ceiling garden rooms in larger properties to bring the indoors and outdoors together too. We believe in creating light and airy rooms with generous windows and ceilings are just that little bit higher than you might expect.
Even on days when happy family mayhem may be breaking out, a separate lounge gives precious, grown-up space and the utility room keeps the working aspects of a home nicely out of sight. Deep, feature windows in the lounge flood the space with natural light, and truly come into their own when nature brings warm sunshine or sparkling snow outside. That’s also the time when French windows from the family area can be thrown open to enjoy secure, timber-fenced gardens. We may not have thought of everything but we promise that we’ve tried.
Your own space
Pull your stylish, contemporary door closed upstairs and the wide open hallway gives way to your private space. Some Robertson house types have third floor study, gym or generous storage areas but all boast peaceful, beautifully designed bedrooms and luxurious bath or shower rooms to enjoy 'me' time. Just like downstairs, room sizes, windows and ceiling heights are a little bit more generous than other modern homes so your own special haven can feel cosy, not closed in.
With good sized en suite facilities and generous family bathrooms, the commitment to light and airy living continues throughout. Over two stories or three, you will find a room that’s yours to exhale and unwind after a busy day. Some house types over an outsized fifth bedroom, games room or family breakout area on the third floor - but stake a claim early, since we’ve never encountered a teenager yet who didn’t consider it theirs by right. The highest standards of energy efficiency also mean you’ll stay cosy and warm no matter what the weather outside is doing. This is your space to relax and shed the cares of the day.

This thriving local community is awash with independent shops, galleries, cafes, award-winning butchers, inns, a good library, doctors’ surgery, everything you might need within walking distance. You’ll find larger supermarkets at nearby Alnwick and also at Morpeth. If you crave the delights of high street shopping you will find Newcastle only a short drive from Rothbury.

For those that love the outdoors, you are never more than a couple of minutes from a woodland walk or a short drive to delights including Bamburgh Castle.
Educational amenities are excellent. At primary level, Rothbury First School has a fine reputation. Its curriculum extends beyond national levels, with a special focus on personal, social and health education. The local secondary school also with a good reputation is within walking distance.
For children aged nine to thirteen, Dr Tomlinson Church of England Middle School has received good ratings. At secondary level, the King Edward VI Academy in Morpeth and The Duchess’s Community High School in Alnwick are also well rated.

Special places include nearby Cragside House and Gardens, a National Trust property. Standing on a rocky hillside above a forest garden, it was the first house in the world to be lit using hydroelectric power. The house is surrounded by an enormous rock garden and a huge display of rhododendrons.
The village also has its own annual traditional music festival, established more than 40 years ago. Its unique atmosphere attracts performers from throughout the UK to celebrate a great weekend of Northumbrian musical traditions.
The site manager has been really attentive towards anything we need. The quality of the finishings in terms of the fittings and fixtures is impressive.

They made sure I was happy with everything and didn't make me feel rushed. We looked at a number of properties but the quality of this home was superior.

I was really surprised and delighted by the attention to detail! The weight of the doors, height of the skirting boards, floor to ceiling heights, just luxury.
