About Stonyfield Cottage and its environs

This spacious detached four double-bedroomed stone-built Northumberland cottage, with private large wild-life garden to the rear, including a decking area with seating, Hot Tub and BBQ is situated in the quiet village of Rochester, in the heart of the Northumberland National Park , on an elevated site, away from the main road, with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and country walks from your door-step. ​Rochester is a small village on the A68 between Corbridge and Jedburgh. The village is the site of the Roman Fort of Bremenium, built to protect Dere Street (now the A68), an important Roman road, which ran from York up into Scotland at least as far as the Antonine Wall. Bremenium means “the place on the roaring stream”. It was the most important outpost north of Hadrian’s Wall and could warn of attacks from the North. This is a rural and tranquil area with lots of outdoor activities to enjoy, including the vast Kielder Forest, Water and Observatory. Kielder Forest Park is just 15 miles away via the Forest Drive route. Walking, hiking and fishing are particularly popular. A number of National Trust properties including Wallington, Cragside and Housesteads Roman Fort are within a 45 minutes drive. Carter Bar, the border with Scotland, is just 12 miles up the road which makes Stonyfield Cottage an ideal base for exploring the Scottish Borders and places like Hawick, Kelso, Jedburgh and Town Yetholm. In the village of Rochester on the A68, about 1.5 mile walk from Stonyfield Cottage, is Camien Cafe, famously the last cafe in England.
