Winnowshill is located close to Derwent Reservoir, set within the beautiful Pennine valley near to the Durham and Northumberland border.

Hamsterley Forest provides miles of lovely forest walks leading to High Force; England’s largest waterfall. The historic market town of Hexham, dominated by its majestic abbey offers an abundance of amenities only 15 miles and the pretty village of Corbridge renowned for its specialist shops and quaint tea rooms is 12 miles. Bowes Museum, Raby Castle, Beamish Museum, Vindolanda, the Roman Site at Corstopitum and Housesteads Roman Fort Museum are all interesting historic attractions within easy driving distance. The vibrant city of Newcastle, well-known for its global, cultural pursuits and the extensive shopping facilities at the world renowned Gateshead Metro Centre, along with the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, the Baltic Centre and the Sage Gateshead music venue are only 20 miles east, ensuring The Mill provides a peaceful retreat in an excellent central location for discovering the best of Northumberland, County Durham and Cumbria.

We didn’t read the small print and rocked up with no towels. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

It was the perfect setting for our annual new year break. The cottage was well kitted and decor was just lovely. Would recommend some scatter cushions on sofa for additional comfort but other than that it was well equipped. The only issue was the upstairs creaky floorboards! We couldn't use the bathroom once the children had gone to bed as the floor in there and the double room was so noisy but this really was the only issue. Would love to come back and try out the Derwent. Thank you x

The Mill is lovely and cosy and would visit again, but price, due to "Staycations", is very expensive for such a small property. You are a long way to get to a pub or shop, but we bought all our own food, so did not bother us.
