Edlingham is nestled equidistant between Rothbury to the west and the historic market town of Alnwick to the east; both being around 6 miles away. Edlingham has its own medieval castle and 11th-century church in its grounds. This beautiful location is regularly used in TV and film sets; it’s the location of the Hobbit latest promotional film poster and some scenes for the ITV drama series, Beowulf, were also filmed here.
A short drive west brings you to Rothbury, snuggled at the foot of the Simonside and Lordenshaw Hills. It straddles the banks of the trout and salmon-rich River Coquet, where a licence and permit for fishing can be obtained locally. This is a popular destination for cyclists and walkers and is known as the ‘Gateway to the Northumberland National Park, there are many amenities available including tea rooms, pubs, shops and a riverside 18-hole golf course. The National Trust site of Cragside, once home to Lord Armstrong and the first home to be lit by hydro-electricity, sits within 1000 acres and is an interesting visitor attraction only 4 miles west from Quails Nest.
The bustling market town of Alnwick boasts its own dramatic castle, which is home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film academy for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry) has a wide array of facilities, 6 miles east. Visit Alnwick Garden with its spectacular Cascade Waterfall and restaurant incorporated within the largest tree house in Europe.
Quails Nest is an excellent choice for those seeking a tranquil base with lovely rural views and gives easy access to explore the beautiful 20-mile stretch of Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the east and the wild and lonely expanses of the heather-capped Cheviot Hills to the west. Shop, pub and restaurant 5 miles. Beach 10½ miles.
