  • "This property is very spacious and works for all age groups."

    We went with our children (19 and 21) and grandparents (85 and 92). The flexibility provided by the ziplock beds was really useful. We self catered most of the time and there was little missing from the implements needed, an electric whisk and/or plunge blender would have been useful but I have rarely come across these in rented accommodation. On the other hand there always a good sized steamer, thanks for that. We all enjoyed the pool table and the hammock was fun. This house is well situated for Lindisfarne (10 mins) and Berwick upon Tweed (15 mins) and Alnwick and Cragside are only a little over 30 mins away. The Ford and Etal estate are very close. This place is quiet and secluded, we would stay again.

  • "Prior to our stay, Mill House suffered damage from Storm Arwen."

    We were offered, and accepted, Shepherds' House on the same farm as an alternative. This house also provides roomy and well-considered accommodation. The kitchen was able to cope with many cooks. Our party comprised 7 and the bathroom provision was ideal. The games room with billiard table proved a hit. We enjoyed a grand and happy Christmas. Susan Boyd.

    Thank you for your understanding, so glad you had a lovely Christmas. Property Owner

  • "We booked Mill House but unfortunately storms meant we couldn’t stay there at the last minute."

    However the owner was able to put us in another property Shepherd’s House which was incredible! We couldn’t speak highly enough of the owner for moving us when we thought we would be having a cancellation. The property was outstanding! Better than the photos even, and the photos are great! We had a welcome hamper of essentials on arrival, spotlessly clean, such a well looked after, spacious, modern property that suited our 2 young families plus grandparents! It was really really nice! The bedrooms were really big, fitting a family of four in one of them on one side of the house! The pool table was great for our older children! The kitchen lounge space was amazing, with lovely rural views, huge windows letting in natural light, a lovely space to cook, chat and sit together! The extras details were lovely (eg) christmas trees and lights! It was very rural but there was everything close by we wanted to see; Bamburgh, Holy Island plus plenty of places to eat locally too. We had an excellent time there and couldn’t speak highly enough of the owners and their communication, and the property itself! So although the review isn’t directly about Mill House both houses were owned by the same person so I’m sure the other property would have been of the same high standard. Thank you for a memorable stay! It really was a beautiful property!

    Very comfortable. Owner responded very quickly to any queries we had. Very well equipped with everything you need except a clothes airer and somewhere to put soap in the shower. Location perfect for exploring northern Northumberland and The Borders. The Black Bull in Lowick do amazing meals but book early.

  • "Mill House was amazing place to spend a week, great accommodation with four very spacious bedrooms, and amazing space in general."

    The welcoming pack was a lovely touch from the owners and made us all feel at home. Set in a very rural spot just a mile and half from Lowick, provided a great centre to visit all the local towns, with Berwick just 10 miles up the A1 and the Holy island a quick 20 minute drive away. Mill House has everything you need and would certainly come back again if i should be visiting Northumberland in future. A few tips, two great local pubs in Lowick just a 30 minute walk away which both serve excellent food, also if you need some shopping or takeaway just pop to Belford about 9 miles away and you will find a Coop and Fish and Chip shop (excellent by the way).

  • "Brown water ."

    Holes in the bottom sheets. Not enough storage space in kitchen for food when delivered. Fridge could also do with being larger to hold food for 7 or more people. Forks were distorted. Stable door very difficult to close. Some instructions would be useful. Outside looks very neglected and overgrown. No where to put soap etc in the shower. Bad back made it difficult to keep bending to the floor. Lovely setting with attention to detail this could have been much better.

    Cleaning should be improved kettle and frying pans had to be scrubbed before use and the tiles at the back of the cooker were spattered with grease Good to see partridge, pheasant and rabbits in the garden and sheep over the fence.

    Amazing cottage which had everything we needed for a family break. Location great - on a farm a minutes drive from the village. There is a walkway from the cottage to the village via the farm track & fields which took around 15 mins. Lowick had a lovely pub & shop. The cottage itself was immaculate & the owner was on hand to answer any questions we had on arrival. All rooms are huge & great for a family getaway. Pool table was a great bonus! We will definately stay again & would highly recommend.10/10.

    The house was ideal for a large group, the downstairs areas were very large with more than enough seating for everyone. The bedrooms were all of a very good size too, with 2 having en suites. Mill House was in a very peaceful location, but with easy access to lots of areas of interest including Holy Island. The communication from Susie was fab and some nice touches were left in the kitchen for our arrival, which were very much appreciated. I would definitely recommend a stay here and hope to return.

  • "This is the second time we have stopped at Mill House and were all excited about staying again."

    We are a family of 9 including two chidren. The Barn is very spacious with a large kitchen and lounge with plenty of seating and a snooker table at the other end. A downstairs toilet is very useful. Upstairs the bedrooms are all of a good size two of them en-suite and a large family bathroom as well as a utility room with washer and dryer. The hot water was plentiful. The property was very clean/ A welcome pack was left for us. There was everything that you could need in the kitchen a varied supply of pots and pans. Lots of magazines books games. Information on anything you are interested in. The Barn is very well situated for a lot of places. We went on the train from Berwick on Tweed to Edinburgh for the day, Eyemouth, Kelso races and Bamburgh Castle, Grace Darling Museum and the Church we also did a round walk around Norham Castle, walking on the English side of the River Tweed. We ate at the Black Bull in Lowick on two nights and another night in Wooller at Milan an italian. Both were delicious. Everything about the property description is true. We did meet the owner who was very nice. There are sheep all around the property which my grand daughters loved.

    Large kitchen and dinning room you could hold a dance party. Large lounge the only complaint was that the sofas were to low and soft for us old ones the younger generation had no problems. The pool table was well used every evening no TV. The location was ideal so quite and peaceful and easy to visit Seahouses, Holy Island and Berwick and other locations to many to name. The bedrooms were ideal and adequate sizes. No problem getting Tesco to deliver groceries. Would recommend this property and the helpful owners to all and sundry. The local pubs had good food.

  • "We loved Mill House and had a very enjoyable week."

    The cottage sleeps at least eight people and our party should have been eight but ended up being six of us. We struggled with the fridge space, especially as it is not near a supermarket so we were shopping for a few days at a time. Had there been eight of us it would have been impossible to refrigerate everything. The size of the kitchen at Mill House would easily take a bigger fridge or even an additional low fridge. Apart from that it was very clean and comfortable and so peaceful, we loved it.

The property

This delightful, detached barn conversion is set on the owner’s working, organic, livestock farm, just a short drive from the Northumberland village of Lowick.

Perfect for those looking to enjoy country walks or a quiet rural retreat, Mill House provides a welcoming holiday home with a wealth of character throughout.

The spacious open-plan living area has a kitchen with a range cooker, ideal for the chef in the group to prepare home-cooked meals for everyone to enjoy in the dining area.

There is also a sitting area, making this a great place to get-together and discuss tomorrow’s plans whilst relaxing with a well-deserved drink.

Why not then retire to the expansive living area, with plenty of room for the adults to chill out whilst the kids can amuse themselves playing pool?

Flexible sleeping arrangements across the four bedrooms at this cottage mean that a variety of parties can be accommodated, and with two bedrooms boasting en-suite shower rooms, there is an added touch of luxury.

Outside, a lovely lawned garden with a patio and furniture provides somewhere to sit and unwind after a long walk on the nearby Cheviot Hills, plus it's a perfect space for children to let off some steam before bed.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1059369, together sleeping 16 guests.

Moorhouse Farm Cottages

Tucked away within an idyllic setting, in the Northumberland countryside, are two stunning properties nestled within reach of the owner's working farmland. Moorhouse Farm Cottages provide a welcoming base for a weekend of celebration with your family and friends, offering luxury accommodation mixed with a rural escape. Both offer four hotel-style bedrooms with super-king-size beds, which can be changed to a twin on request via zip/link, as well as an open-plan living area and games room. With a host of walks, cycle paths and horse riding options on the doorstep, as well as the striking Cheviots to the west and the heritage coastline to the east, you don't have to look far for a new countryside pursuit each day. The village of Lowick is just a short stroll away, home to a local shop where you can stock up on snacks and cooking essentials for your self-catered stay, as well as two welcoming pubs when you fancy dining out on some classic pub grub and ale. Spend a day at one of the nearby beaches; choosing from sandy havens at Spittal Beach, Cocklawburn Beach, Bamburgh Beach, or Berwick-upon-tweed Beach Front, to name a few. Discover local history at one of Northumberland's popular attractions; visit Bamburgh Castle, take a boat trip from Seahouses to the Farne Islands, or admire the dramatic Alnwick Castle, the inspiration for Hogwarts in the Harry Potter film series. Other must-see locations are the ancient Holy Island of Lindisfarne, or Edinburgh city centre further afield. Whether you're looking for an active holiday or a peaceful one, Moorhouse Farm Cottages makes the ideal base.
