Unique, character barn conversion situated within the Northumberland National Park, with Forestry Commision walks close by.

This detached, unique 19th century stone-built farm mill, complete with water wheel, has been converted to a good standard resulting in lovely, contemporary holiday accommodation. The Old Mill has plenty of history to admire, it forms part of East Newtown, a farmstead situated on the branch of the Routing Burn above the southern banks of the River Coquet. Settlement and farming at Newtown began in 1249 and you can still see the earthworks, banks and hollows of this thriving medieval settlement in the field above East Newtown, from the public right of way. Situated inside the Northumberland National Park, with a backdrop of the Simonside Hills and a pleasant descent to the lovely Coquet valley above the village of Rothbury, The Old Mill is an excellent base from which to explore the region. Step outside and access the footpath that leads to Newtown Park, the Forestry Commision walks, the crags and the 1410 foot high summit of Simonside. St Oswald’s Way passes close by at Lordenshaws. Rothbury enjoys many amenities including traditional pubs, coffee shops, bakers, butchers, galleries and leisure facilities. There are pleasant riverside walks and a playground for children. The glorious Northumberland countryside - still a well-kept secret, just waits to be explored and The Old Mill is a convenient and central base. The Old Mill is located within the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park, an area that has been awarded Gold Tier status, which is the highest rating for viewing stars. Guests at The Old Mill have the exciting opportunity to experience the stunning night skies with 10 by 50 binoculars and a selection of telescopes (by arrangement with the owner). Red night vision torches and star charts are also provided. Other local attractions include Cragside Estate, Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Wallington House and Gardens, and many more! Shops, pubs and restaurants 2 miles.

    We absolutely loved our stay at the old mill. The owners, who were on site, were extremely helpful and the location was fabulous. The cottage was wonderfully warm and cosy and close to some interesting places to visit. A good base to see Northumberland. The village of Rothbury nearby has good amenities, and Alnwick town is only a short drive away.

    A delightful cottage in a beautiful setting. The friendly & welcoming owners have provided everything you could need. The interior is gorgeous & they have used quality furnishings throughout. It was lovely to see the water wheel working. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here & would love to go back. It makes a perfect base for touring the area or just chilling out & relaxing. The countryside here is beautiful, being on the edges of the national park. There is so much to see & do. There is plenty to explore locally like Simonside & the old rock carvings, the pretty town of Rothbury, & the National Trust property Cragside. Further afield we really enjoyed the Farne Islands, Lindisfarne, Alnwick & many others. All you need to add is a bit of sunshine & you’ve got the perfect holiday!
