Tosson Tower Farm Cottages, Great Tosson, Rothbury, Northumberland (Sleeps 1-6)

Tosson Tower Farm Cottages are located in Great Tosson near the village of Rothbury in Northumberland. Tosson Tower makes an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions this beautiful part of the world offers. The accommodation is open all year round and is equally beautiful in the winter too!

From coast to country, history is all around you. From the mysterious "Cup & Ring" marks carved into the rocks in Iron Age times in the hills just above Tosson Tower Farm, to the highest number of castles and fortified houses in England and not forgetting the World Heritage Centre of Hadrian's Wall, once the most northern boundary of the Roman Empire.

Tosson Tower itself is the remains of a fortified Pele Tower, a defensive structure built in medieval times to defend against the bands of raiders who patrolled the "Debatable Lands" of the borders.

Castles are dotted up and down the coastline (all open to visitors) and are well worth a trip. From Lindisfarne on Holy Island, the birthplace of Christianity in the British Isles. The romantic cliff-top ruins of Dunstanburgh. Magnificent Bamburgh with its very own dragon legend! And not forgetting Alnwick, ancestral home to the Duke of Northumberland.
