Guests are welcome to use the culinary herbs at the front of the cottage for cooking during their stay. There is solid oak flooring throughout the property.

The Old Workshop forms part of the Rock village estate and is well placed for easy visits to the stunning Northumbrian coastline and fabulous local countryside walks. The village has a well-marked trail past the ancient church. The golden beaches of Newton-by-the-Sea and Embleton are less than 5 miles away. Combine a fabulous coastal walk to Dunstanburgh Castle and back with lunch overlooking the sea in the quaint fishing village of Craster, world famous for its smoked kippers and salmon. Golfers are spoilt for choice being within easy reach of many first class coastal courses. Inland, the Northumberland National Park is a stunning area of natural beauty, a magnet for cyclists, bird watchers and anglers. The market town of Alnwick, five miles away, is famous for its castle, featured in Harry Potter films and Downton Abbey, and the splendid gardens with the famous treehouse restaurant. To the north lies the busy town of Seahouses and the Farne Islands.

    Very well equipped, cosy, quiet, beautifully decorated cottage within an easy drive of many places of interest. We have revisited as we had a very happy week in 2017.

    Excellent week. Cottage very good although we had no hot water on Thursday/Friday which we were not best pleased about. Location is superb with some really great places to visit and dog friendly eating places.

    An absolute gem. A little off the tourist trail which suited us fine - we have fallen in love with Rock - and will definitely return. We had a magical, magical week. The cottage is perfect for two [and a whippet] - it was secluded and romantic - and only minutes away from the places you want to go to. Rock itself has wonderful walks and is perfect - the cottage is well equipped, easy to manage and beautifully appointed. It really was a home from home. Thank you very much for facilitating us - we had the pleasure of meeting the owner on our departure - and a more charming man you could not wish to meet. Thank you everyone for making our week in Northumberland so memorable.
