English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Romantic countryside retreat with a number of quirky features and stylish interiors. Large grounds abundant in wildlife.

These tasteful, character holiday cottages are set within the grounds of Lemmington Hall amongst the unspoilt Northumbrian countryside. Each cottage has its own individual charm with cosy and elegant interiors carefully designed by the owner. Forge Cottage (ref MVN) is the largest, a beautiful detached cottage with uninterrupted views of the Cheviot Hills, and was formerly the stone-built home of the blacksmith of this charming country estate. The quaint and charming pair of Grade II listed, single-storey, adjoining cottages, Thimble (ref MVV) and Button (ref MVU), designed specifically for couples to offer a romantic country life experience, retaining charm and quirkiness. Peacocks wander nearby, with red squirrels and deer in the woods. The properties are ideally located to explore the abundance of visitor attractions, with Alnwick (the ducal town), only 4 miles away where a visit to the castle and enchanting water gardens is a must, not to mention the Treehouse restaurant. The Heritage Coast, with miles of golden sandy beaches, peppered with friendly villages and historic castles, is only a 20-minute drive. Shop 4 miles, pub 3 miles.

Beamed living room with wood-burning stove, French doors and rugs on wooden floor. Small step to kitchen/breakfast area with wooden floor. Double bedroom with 5ft bed, TV and en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    Fantastic cottage set in great surroundings and only 5 minutes outside of Alnwick. A fully loaded pad with a great welcome package! So many places to visit within a few minutes car journey. What's not to like!?

    Had a wonderful stay here. Beautiful log burner in the living room and an open fire in the bedroom is a treat too. Really gorgeous cottage and the peacocks in the garden are wonderful to watch. We really enjoyed our stay here and can't wait to return.

    Thimble Cottage is a very well appointed cottage full of character located a few miles from Alnwick and close to a number of walks, places to see and lovely country pubs. The cottage owners had a presentation tray of wine, milk and other goodies to greet us when we arrived. The cottage had a stove in the sitting room and an open fire in the bedroom and the owners provided a number of slow burning reconstituted logs for our use. The kitchen was well fitted out and hot water was always literally on tap. We had a great stay and can thoroughly recommend the cottage.

    We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very well equipped, location was great and peacocks entertaining! We did however have an issue with the bed. The mattress was very uncomfortable and well past it's best. The welcome package was very much appreciated!

    The cottage was fantastic and added a lot to my general feeling of the holiday - it was artistic, cosy, romantic and practical! The area was stunning and the location made it accessible to the sea and the national park. Would definitely visit again.
