Low Alwinton Cottages are a collection of classic stone built cottages and Scandinavian log cabins in the heart of the beautiful Northumberland National Park. We offer a variety of self catering accommodation to suit every guest's needs, from the luxury 5 Star Byre Cottage, to our charming 4 star stone built cottages Coquet and Cheviot, or our cosy Scandinavian style log cabins. We are situated 11 miles West of Rothbury in the beautiful Coquet Valley, the perfect location for a holiday in an area renowned for its beauty and rich wildlife. Nestled between Harbottle Forest and the banks of the river Coquet, Low Alwinton Cottages lies in an area home to an abundance of British wildlife including red squirrels, otters and black lizards. The wildlife in the areas around the cottages is one of the most rich and varied in the whole of England. We are also situated inside the Northumberland Dark Sky Park, the largest Dark Sky Park in Europe and home to the darkest skies in England. This makes Low Alwinton Cottages the perfect location for viewing the night sky and a fantastic holiday destination for anyone interested in astronomy or stargazing. Walking and rambling for all abilities begins at the cottage door with a leisurely stroll along the river bank or a more energetic hike to discover the beauty and open space of the Cheviot Hills. Keen anglers can take advantage of the challenging fishing in the river Coquet quite literally metres from the cottages. Pets are welcome in all of our cottages with the exception of Byre Cottage.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After approx. 13 visits these holiday lets never fail to make our holiday special. They are situated in a very remote location which is the be place to go to switch off from the busy lives we lead. To surround yourself with nature, wildlife & beautiful scenery helps us to reset, relax & for the soul to be cleansed. A holiday is unique to us all & is what you make of it so if you go with the right expectation to switch off then this is the place to pay a visit. 20 mins to 30 mins drive you can find the most amazing coastline, places to walk on your doorstep, roads are great for bikes (both motorbikes & push bikes) & not forgetting places to eat are down the lane & further afield. The holiday lets are full of character to match the surroundings. All quaint & cosy. Set in rural locations can interfere with connections for mobile phones but who needs them when you're on holiday? Each cottage & cabin provides WiFi connection which allows you to connect to the outside world. I would highly recommend everyone to pay a visit to Low Alwinton Cottages

These beautiful holiday let's are set in a very rural part of Northumberland + the tranquillity is the best place to unwind + relax. Each dwelling offers fantastic views. Nature all around. Definitely a place to visit. We have just returned from our 10th visit + never fails to impress us.

Reivers cottage We loved the remoteness of this lodge with fantastic views from both the main living room and the bath! Property is showing its age a little with the decking area which greets you seeming in need of some treatment (only cosmetic, all very safe). However, lovely hot water on supply, very clean inside and although not modern the living room furniture was very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. Disappointed that the views were interrupted by windows that needed a good clean. Having said that, it wouldn’t stop us from returning if we wish to get away from it all again. Nearest shops 9 miles away in Rothbury but there is a small shop stall behind The Star pub in Harbottle a mile or so away. Tescos and Morrisons also deliver, and the Rose and Thistle pub a few minutes away is very welcoming and serves lovely food. Great walks from the doorstep, dog friendly and a visit to National Trusts Cragside nearby is a must .

We were absolutely over the moon with this accommodation unfortunately our home was one that was hit by storm Arwen my granddaughter works for the owners of this lodge and they offered it to us free of charge for as long as we needed it. We gratefully accepted and appreciated this offer and we found everything we needed here. Ideal size for the three of us it’s so nice to know that there are people around who yes run a business but in times of need are there to help the community at times of need. Thanks once again and will definitely recommend to anyone that wants a holiday in tranquil setting

This accommodation was dirty and unkept and the shabby condition was totally unlike the pictures shown on the Original cottages website. The pictures on the website must have been taken many years ago when it was new ! There was a complete lack of general maintenance. We stayed for one week in August ( the reason why my review has been left until now is because we have tried to obtain a refund. Original Cottages have accepted our claim but I am still in discussion with the owners who have been fobbing me off for the past 9 weeks ! The windows were so dirty you couldn't see out, the dust and muck on the settee and chair was disgusting and the rug was so dirty we rolled it up so we didn't have to stand on it ! We cleaned the whole place BEFORE we unpacked. The microwave was rusty and the bottom of the drawers in the bedroom had fallen through. The dining chairs had no covers and the howere screen was broken. This accommodation needs a complete refurbish and deep clean before they can charge £834 for a week's stay !

Beautiful scenery but too remote for us. The beds were very uncomfortable and the mattresses need to be replaced. The leather sofas were in a terrible state with worn bits of leather flaking off everywhere. Covering them up with a throw is inadequate and unacceptable. There were no instructions for the TV. We could only get Channel 4 during our stay. Wifi is intermittent. The kitchen was adequate but It would be helpful to supply oven gloves and washing up liquid. Overall, a disappointing experience and I would not recommend this cottage to others. Definitely not 4 star standard.

We stayed at Reivers Lodge for my wife's 50th birthday and unfortunately it was ruined by the shoddy condition of the the cabin and the lack of care and interest by the owners. The cabins were built in the late 80's or early 90's and not much has changed since then. The mattresses where probably the original ones from then too as it was like sleeping on bare springs. (Other reviews mention this back in 2017). The overall appearance of the site is unkempt, the hut with visitor information is strewn with old leaflets most of which are wet and stuck together. When we arrived it was freezing cold, the heating was off. There were no instructions to operate the heating and another guest had to show us how to switch it on. One bedroom door would not close (hard to keep the dog out as per the rules), the bathroom tap leaked on the floor, the kitchen was poorly equipped only 4 mugs. The main issue was heating, on the second night the heating and hot water stopped working. I called the number we were given fro the payphone, no response message left. The next morning I called another mobile number and the main office, no response messages left. By mid day no response, no visit, the portable heater (with a broken leg) was not sufficient. We could not stay another night with 2 children with no heating or hot water so made the decision to leave and take the 4 hour drive home. The agent has tried to resolve this with the owner, but we have not had a satisfactory response.

We stayed for a week in Cheviot Cottage. The area is beautiful, it is remote and getting there on day 1 was a slight challenge due to flooding! The cottage itself was a very good size, the kitchen was well stocked and there were lots of books to read. The wi fi only worked in the bathroom or outside but this wasn't an issue for us. The lounge was very comfortable, as were the beds. I felt that it was good value for money. The only reason that I have not given 5 stars is that it wasn't quite as clean as I would have hoped. There was some bagged dog poo in the garden on our arrival and although the carpets looked visibly clean there was quite a lot of pet hair evident.

Had a fabulous 5 days in Coquet Cottage. The cottage was warm and welcoming and had everything we needed for a relaxing few days away. We had delightful weather so that made sitting outside to connect to the WiFi not too much of a problem. Ideal if you want peace and tranquillity with loads of attractions within an one hour drive. The Coop at Rothbury is great for stocking up and very reasonably priced- did not need to venture any further to get what we needed. Lovely kitchen and eating area for family gatherings.

Myself and some friends decided to book byre cottage for a birthday get away for something a little bit different. We were not disappointed. When pulling up the beautiful views and entrance to the cottage give a warm and welcoming feel. The property it’s self was immaculate. We were then greeted by a gentleman who talked through basic details of appliances etc. A very comfortable stay finished by breakfast with the most amazing views. We were able to open the back doors to have breakfast on the patio area were we could truely take in the beautiful scenes. Will definitely be returning again.
