What Popology love about Flat 3, Conway House and Rothbury:

We love the historical vibe combined with the characterful and welcoming feel of this top floor flat. The living arrangement is both practical and well thought out in order to provide wonderful views from all aspects. You’ve got the best of both worlds here, an ancient market town location with a low maintenance characterful flat within Conway House that fits effortlessly into the period properties that surround it. It’s a lock up and leave or a full time residence, whatever the choice, this flat exudes a feeling of peace and sanctuary.

The location is a huge plus for us with all of the wonderful, small and unique shops that Rothbury boasts along with bistro dining restaurants and cafes.  The old fashioned sweet shop, butchers and bakeries add a lovely traditional feel to the small town and what better way to start your morning than with a freshly baked loaf of bread?  It’s the perfect town to have a potter around and perhaps invest in some antiques from the huge antiques shop that Rothbury is well known for having.

For the more adventurous, the surrounding area of Rothbury is ideal for walkers with terrain varying from heather moorland to dense woodland and lush pastureland. There are routes for everyone whether you want a morning jog, a stroll to a picnic spot or a half-day walk to a norman church and castle.  The National Trust Estate of Cragside is just a couple of minutes away and is well worth a visit with its spectacular grounds and the amount of history to be seen within the property there.  The iconic Northumberland coastline isn’t too far away either for those all important beach days.

Transport links are easily accessible with Edinburgh to the North and Newcastle Upon Tyne to the South via the A697 and the A1.
