There are several lovely walks that can be taken direct from Burnfoot - following the burn down towards the River Coquet; following the road past the fish pass to Netherton village and beyond into the National Park; or following the burn upstream into the Cheviot Hills.
You could quite easily fill your holiday with a different walk from your front door each day.
For the more adventurous there are many bracing hill walks which take you into the heart of the Cheviot, and to the summit of The Cheviot itself. Many of these walks are described well at www.cheviotwalks.co.uk.
The National Park visitor centre in also Rothbury has a wealth of information including leaflets for dozens of breathtaking walks in the vicinity. The website also holds much useful information: www.northumberlandnationalpark.org.uk.
In the welcome pack in your cottage will be a shortlist of some of our favourites as there are simply too many to list on the website.
If you are a keen walker, then the annual Rothbury and Coquetdale Walking Festival is for you. Held in June every year for two weeks, it already attracts visitors from all over the globe. For further details click on www.rothburywalking.co.uk.
The Cheviots Challenge takes place every summer, and is the main fundraising event for the Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team. It is exactly what it says in the tin - the routes are challenging, but are also designed to take in dramatic views, waterfalls and historic sites. We would strongly recommend entering - raising funds for a very worthy cause and stretching yourself (safe in the knowledge that at the end of the walk your luxurious holiday cottage awaits!).
