About the Owner
We are Gill and Gordon. Our beautiful cottage has been in our family for the past 19 years and we have enjoyed holidaying every year with our kids at this magical place on the Northumbrian Coast.
5 based on 14 holidaymaker reviews
The cottage is absolutely lovely - fantastically equipped, comfortable, clean, and in the most peaceful location. We did not want for anything and felt as if we had found a little bit of heaven! The cottage is ideally situated to explore Northumberland, in particular, the beautiful beaches at Bamburgh, Low Newton and Embleton Bay, and of course, Lindisfarne and the numerous castles in the area! We loved sitting in the pretty garden overlooking the stream and watching the sheep and pigs in the field opposite. Communication from Gill was excellent and she could not have been more helpful with the information she provided. The flowers and “bubbly” on our arrival were a kind thought – thank you Gill. The cottage is just perfect and we would recommend it to family and friends - we will definitely return.
The perfect holiday home
It was just like living in someone's home, not a holiday let at all. Everything was beautifully presented with all you could want for a most comfortable stay.
The outside was just as described on the website, with a lot of other useful things in the shed.
The peace and quiet in the situation of the cottage was the best thing when you sat outside in the garden ---------- the little brook running alongside the property , the privacy from the field and little wood the other side of the water --------- it was everything the Doctor ordered and more ! I would have no problem in recommending this holiday home to friends and family.
Beautiful cottage in peaceful location.
Our first visit to Northumberland and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect cottage. Everything we needed and more. We booked just 5 days before arriving, but everything was perfect and Gill the owner couldn't have been more helpful. We spent many relaxing hours in the conservatory watching our neighbours over the stream, (3 gorgeous pigs)! One afternoon saw a heron just below the decking and lots of birds in the garden.
Millstone is the perfect location to visit many wonderful places. Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island, Alnwick Castle, Cragside, Howick Hall and the most amazing coastline.
Northumberland has stolen our hearts with its beauty, history and the friendliest people ever. We cannot recommend it and Millstone cottage highly enough.
A thoroughly pleasant and relaxing experience from start to finish.
We can only echo the sentiments of those who have already stayed and left a review. Millstone cottage really is as clean, comfortable and well-maintained as they say and well located for exploring the Northumberland coast. Within easy reach of Bamburgh, Lindisfarne and Alnwick, would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing base in the area. Conservatory and garden were a delight and a definite bonus. Excellent provision of local info, maps, etc.
High quality, comfortable cottage in pleasant and quiet location
This cottage is spacious, comfortable and decorated/furnished to a high standard. It is well equipped and has everything you are likely to need. We are a family of 4 including 2 older teenagers and it easily accomodated us all. It's located in a small, quiet hamlet close to Bamburgh and is also very convenient for days out around the fabulous Northumbrian coastline and countryside. Definitely a cottage we'd like to visit again.
The cottage was stunning and perfect location to explore Northumberland
The property was ideally located for nearby Bamburgh and its stunning beach, unfortunately on this occasion the weather was not kind to us. Berwick was 30mins away for an educational stroll around the city walls. Beadnell with the Craster Arms made for an excellent Sunday lunch (large portions and reasonable price). Alnwick was 30mins away and was a pleasant day out also. 1:25K OS maps of the area were a nice touch (I'm usually a keen walker). The bottle of wine was also a thoughtful touch too. Looking forward to staying again in the future.
From the Owner
“We have family connections in Northumberland so this has been an ideal base for visiting family while enjoying a relaxing holiday in the most beautiful surroundings. We love the rural setting but also enjoy being close enough to the surrounding towns and villages where we can appreciate good food, the stunning coastline and also the history which Northumberland is famous for from the story of Grace Darling, to the monks of Lindisfarne and onto the spectacular Bamburgh Castle which you can't fail to be impressed by. We love to walk whether it be along the beach, or further inland to the crags above Belford, St Cuthberts cave or the beautiful Langleeford just outside Wooler and all within a 20 minute drive from our cottage.”

From the Owner
“Millstone cottage is set within a small hamlet, there is private parking, a beautiful flowing burn which runs past the back garden and from where you can enjoy a spot of fishing and here is where you may also spot the spectacular Kingfisher. We are located on Budle Bay which is a very popular spot for bird watchers and from here you can begin your walk along the coastline which will take you to Bamburgh then onto Seahouses”
