Town: The unspoilt village of Elsdon lies in a protected hollow amid beautiful fells, woodland and moorland in the heart of the Cheviots on the edge of the Northumberland National Park. The area is rich with history, and there are many listed sites in this community, overshadowed by the fortified Pele Tower. The village green is a charming feature of Elsdon, and there is a pub that dates back to the 18th century that retains a truly olde worlde atmosphere. A good choice of shops is available in the market town of Rothbury just 10 miles away, and there is much to explore in the surrounding area including the Coast to Coast Walk and alternative Pennine Way which passes though. A National Cycle Route runs by for those who love to explore the countryside on two wheels.

Having stayed at Townfoot Cottage on several occasions, our opinion is still the same - an excellent property very comfotable and the owner is always on hand if needed and very helpful.
As already indicated we feel you should make it clear in your future catalogues that entry to property is from 4pm on day of arrival not 3pm - this did not howe ver detract from our enjoyment of the week
Cosy and relaxing

Newly baked scones, homemade jam and tea things are laid ready on the table to welcome guests.
The cottage is very well appointed and the decor is excellent but not overstated.
There is a good shop in Otterburn, only 2 miles away, where you can get newspapers and all basic food requirements. About 10 miles away there is an excellent Farm Shop at Wallington Hall.
Elsdon is a good centre from which to visit the whole of Northumberland and the border towns in Scotland, but for those more active visitors there are good walks nearby. Newcastle with all its amenities is only a 30 minute drive away.
This is a really lovely place to stay; if I must find something not quite perfect it is the lack of a walk-in shower, but that's just my personal preference.
