“Beautiful house, Awesome location, Lovely host”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Any pictures of Rothley Lodge and the considerable surroundings it sit in do not do it justice - It is quiet simply stunning. We stayed for 4 nights to celebrate a family birthday with 8 adults, 3 exuberant children and a toddler and created a family memory that will stay with us forever. The house is large with every conceivable luxury and easily swallowed us all without us ever being on top of each other. Outside is even better. Lichen covered steps, narrow walkways and forgotten tree covered alcoves wind down to the bubbling river bank far below - absolutely magical !! and to cap it all... Lorraine the owner who lives "up the lane" couldn't have been nicer even taking the time to take the children egg hunting - thanks Lorraine, hope to see you and Rothley Lodge again one day

“Exceptional house and grounds, a perfect holiday!”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent a week at Rothley Lodge in a group of 3 adults and 4 children, aged between 7 and 11.
The house itself is beautiful, a large warm welcoming kitchen with an Aga, which we embraced and cooked some fabulous meals...once we'd read up on which oven was which! The rooms are all very spacious and attractive. We were a little worried about not closing upstairs blinds (as requested by the owners) but it is so dark it's not a problem and lie-ins weren't affected by dawn light. Despite being summer we made use of the fabulous open fire which gave an added cosines to the evenings.
Damian and Lorraine are lovely and have thought of everything, we wanted for nothing in terms of kitchen utensils, and they made us feel very welcome. We didn't need anything extra but felt we could certainly have asked if need arose. Fresh eggs from the hens on our arrival were a lovely touch and we enjoyed feeding the chickens and collecting eggs during our stay.
The grounds are extensive and our children spent most of their week exploring, hiding in dens and running around. The access to the stream has some steeper, moss covered paths which could be slippery if wet but in appropriate footwear this wasn't a problem. We fished for crayfish and to the children's delight caught a few (and set them free!) we also saw a possible mink and a good few bats.
The gas BBQ and seating area was also really lovely and we were lucky enough to have the weather to enjoy this too.
The location is also great. Rothbury or Ponteland are 20-30 minutes for shops and supermarkets and days out across Northumberland are easily accessed . We had planned quite a few days out but the children begged to stay at the house most days and play in the grounds.
We left Rothley refreshed, relaxed and a little bit in love with this place to be honest. A perfect holiday and we certainly hope to return.

“Great family home for a holiday”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were celebrating birthdays and home coming, all of our children and grandchildren had a fantastic holiday, we had some sunny days and we had some wet days, but we had smiles everyday.

As we were told the sat nav would not get you to the gate, but we found rothley lodge after. A drive around the countryside, it feels a bit remote but you get to accept the peace and quite of the countryside.

“Lovely property in beautiful and tranquil setting.”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The house is immaculate and the garden a lovely place to be with woods going down to the river. The kitchen is very well stocked with every bit of equipment one could possibly need. There was a bit of a glitch with the heating system whilst we were there but we managed to sort it out. The only criticism we have is that we were advised not to use the Roman blinds in the bedrooms. We weren't quite sure why given they seemed to in working order and because we stayed at the property in mid June, would have been useful due to the very light mornings.
