In a nutshell: Access to pool, gym, sauna and jacuzzi, open fire, wheelchair access. Poppy Cottage is one of three Northumbrian cottages close to the small market town of Rothbury in the picturesque Coquet Valley. The town reminds me what most of rural England must have been like forty years ago. The High Street boasts a number of traditional independent shops and the town has a pleasant mix of old stone and newer brick-built properties clustered along the sloping banks of the river at the foot of the Cheviots. Just outside Rothbury is Cragside House, set in gardens that are a rocky wonderland interspersed by trees through which run miles of footpaths, cycleways and a rhododendron maze. However what makes this place unique is the wealth of ingenious gadgetry in the house - installed by the Victorian inventor whose family home it was - including fire alarm buttons, telephones, a passenger lift and a Turkish bath suite.
