Guest Reviews


    • “A Beautiful Little Bothy”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The Bothy at Barmoor Mill is such a lovely, homely place to spend a leisurely holiday. It's an excellent barn conversion, thoughtfully designed throughout, and well equipped with pretty much everything from corkscrews to binoculars. We spent a week here with our dog (who appreciated the run of the fenced garden) and found the location ideal for visiting Lindisfarne, Alnwick, Berwick and further afield along the Scottish borders. On a cold, wet November evening it was lovely to come back to the warm, cosy comfort of The Bothy, and we have already booked to return again next year.”

    • “Stayed with a friend for 1 week and loved it. It was well located for Holy Island, Berwick-Upon-Tweed the A1 and the 697 roads making all the important sites easy to reach. The Bothy was spotlessly clean, well equipped with linens, kitchen utensils, nice furniture, and set in the loveliest scenery. Highly recommended. The owners make you very welcome.”

    • “We stayed at the Bothy for a week. It has everything you need for a great stay. Clean and light and a really comfy bed.. A proper homely feel. A great barn conversion. It's in a lovely location, surrounded by fields and countryside. Plenty of lanes to walk the dog. Ideal for exploring Northumberland, close to the A1 and Holy Island. The owners were very helpful and the home made cake they left us was delicious. One of the best places we have stayed. We can't wait to go back”

    • “My husband and I booked this for 7 nights to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and it was an excellent choice. We were both stressed and tired when we arrived but after a couple of days at 'The Bothy' we felt like we almost lived there! The bed is so comfortable we slept very well and woke every morning refreshed. Just what the doctor ordered! The location of the Bothy is ideal for exploring the Northumberland coast - we visited Berwick, Anwick, Bamburgh, Seahouses, Holy Island and went to Edinburgh on the East Coast train.”
