English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Warm, cosy cottage with unique ’gin-gang’ situated on the secluded Charlton Hall estate, three miles from the Northumberland coastline.

This beautiful country estate offers the perfect ‘home-away-from-home’ in England’s most rural county. Each pretty cottage and private garden is out of sight of any other property. Close to Northumberland’s Heritage coast, these secluded cottages have been renovated throughout to provide cosy interiors with wood-burning stoves - perfect for warm winter breaks. Farm Cottage (ref MMX) boasts its own gin-gang, a circular outbuilding once used as a mule-driven mill. Over the bridge lies Garden Cottage (ref MMW) set inside the old walled garden. These two cottages are located in a tranquil pocket of beautiful rolling countryside, under vast skies where the sun rises over beaches and sets onto the moorland of the Cheviots. Additionally, West Lodge (ref MMV) is a single-storey cottage nestling behind beautiful stone pillars at the entrance to the estate, screened by mature woodland and handily placed for touring just 100 yards from the single-carriageway A1. An ideal country retreat, just 3 miles from sparkling white sandy beaches and close to Northumberland’s magnificent castles. Charlton Hall’s ancient parkland makes for perfect scenic walks. Guests can stroll along the Shippton Burn, which runs under stone bridges, filling the trout lake before meandering to the sea. They can also explore woodland bursting with bluebells and wild flowers in spring and summer; and see nesting buzzards, roe deer, foxes, badgers, hares and weasels – all abundant here due to careful environmental management. A cross country course takes guests who wish to bring their horses through woods and fields. The nearby beaches are also excellent for riding and dog walking. Local attractions include Holy Island, the Farne Islands, historic Berwick-upon-Tweed, Alnwick Castle and Garden, the Heritage coastline and castles. Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Edinburgh are just 1 hour by train. Guests arriving by air met at Newcastle Airport (40 minutes by road) by arrangement. Shops 6 miles.

Access through main farmyard area. Two steps to entrance. Very spacious living room with wood-burning stove in huge stone fireplace and wonderful views over farmland. Spacious farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room. First floor: Double bedroom with 6ft bed and additional single bed (for +1). Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    Warm, cosy and peaceful. It is in the countryside and away from traffic noise and people. the skies are dark and the area beautiful. A great place to spend a few quiet days.

    The cottage is a lovely, peaceful hideaway, clean and comfortable. Its location is well placed for both coast and countryside. It was my third stay and I hope to return.

    Having read the previous reviews we went to the cottage with a fairly open mind and overall enjoyed our stay there. The location just off the A1 enabled us to travel easily to locations and coming back to a roaring log fire with a large supply of logs was a real plus. We arrived in. The middle of a cold spell and the cottage was extremely chilly for the first couple of days but did gradually warm over the week. The journey down the drive was not as challenging as we had expected and we noted on our last day a large number of holes had been filled in. The down sides to the cottage was that in part it looked tired and in need of a refresh, particularly the kitchen. The electrics were also temperamental and tripped quite frequently resulting in losing lights for a while. If you are going in winter wellingtons are a must!
