The Queens Head Inn lies in the centre of the Northumbrian village of Rothbury in the heart of the Coquet Valley. Within 1 mile of the Queens is CRAGSIDE House and Gardens. Cragside was the first house to be entirely lit by hydro-electric power and the gardens are the biggest rockery in the world. November sees the Gardens lit up, with magical evening walks around the lake, call for details. We are within 15 minutes drive of the town of ALNWICK, famous for its markets, Castle (of Harry Potter fame) and gardens. br / br / br / br / Northumberland has more castles and fortified houses than any other English County.
