English Country Cottages

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


Screened by mature woodland in a secluded estate with wonderful walks from the door. A home from home close to 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) accessed through the main farmyard area, boasts its own gin-gang, a circular outbuilding once used as a mule-driven mill. The two cottage is 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. 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 can be met at Newcastle Airport (40 minutes by road) by arrangement. Shops 6 miles.

    I can only agree with some of the previous comments, in that West Lodge does need some care & attention. Some of the furnishings are excellent whilst others are a little frayed and worn, there were lots of little issues that could so easily be rectified without too much effort. The week we stayed was quite warm, inside the cottage was cool so not a problem for us but it would be an issue in the cooler months of the year. On the plus side there was indeed plenty of instant hot water, the location of the lodge meant it was easy to scoot up or down the A1, the rooms were a good size & the owner was pleasant & friendly, quickly sorting out a mix up with our booking.

    The lodge is ready for a serious refurbishment then it could be reasonably good. There was cracked glazing, peeling wall paper, displaced bath seal etc. The approach was spoiled by a redundant tarmac lorry parked opposite to the gate and the garden is unkempt.

    West Lodge is a basic rather than luxury cottage but perfectly comfortable and clean. It was very warm, logs and coal provided as well as a mixture of radiators. The water was hot and plentiful. The enclosed garden was a safe place for our two dogs and would have been a more enjoyable for us had the weather been better. The position of the lodge makes visiting the beach and National Trust properties very easy.
