"When we first entered the house we were surprised how big it was!"
It's so spacious,clean and it has very warm feeling. We spent our Christmas in the house and we would definitely do it again! Highly recommend!
"A really nice property, accurately described and excellent communication by the host."
Its the small touches that make a stay, good communication beforehand with a welcome pack to greet you when you enter just add to the experience. Overall a great stay in a fabulous house with good access to rural Northumberland. Would highly recommend staying here.
"We had a lovely week at Mill House."
Its location is ideal for many attractions such as Lindisfarne, Alnwick Castle and Bamburgh Castle. It’s also only about an hour away from Rosslyn Chapel and Walter Scott’s house across the border. The house it self was so comfortable and cosy. It had everything you could possibly need. We highly recommend the Lowick village shop too. We were also happy with the 2 restaurants in Lowick: The Black Bull and The White Swan. The pool table was a real fun treat too!
"We have stayed at Mill House for four years consecutively and have never been less than delighted to have done so."
Everything about it suits us perfectly and, good fortune permitting, we hope to stay there on many more occasions in the future.
"Mill House is a lovely property - a well designed barn conversion on a working farm."
Its location was perfect for exploring this part of Northumberland (and Scotland too). The house is huge with more than enough space for our two families - 7 altogether. The bedrooms and living spaces are vast. The addition of a pool table went down very well. Good communication from Susie, the owner, whom we met when she came, as promised, to replace a broken kitchen bin. A memorable family holiday in a lovely house.
Lovely to hear you had such a good family break, many thanks Susie Property Owner
"Mill House is honestly one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in."
It had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. It was extremely clean and comfortable and the pool table an added bonus for all the family. The garden was secluded and peaceful surrounded by lovely trees and flowers with shaded parts if needed. It had a small gate so our little dog enjoyed playing on the grass with her ball when we were relaxing having a coffee listening to the birdsong. Susie the owner was so friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. We had a fabulous weeks stay all down to the owners attention to detail, there was even a second fridge which was appreciated. The village shop sells gorgeous home made pies and cakes and deserves more than one visit!!! I would highly recommend this holiday cottage and we will definitely book again. It is also near the popular Northumberland coast. One of the best!!
Thank you for your lovely feedback Eve, so glad you had a relaxing stay. Best wishes Susie Property Owner
"Fantastic holiday home with pretty much everything you need from pizza cutters to a full size pool table."
The setting is lovely and peaceful, with a garden to relax in or for kids to play safely. A couple of local pubs that serve good food (best to drive as no paths, or verges o. The and road) and easy driving distances to Holy Island, Bamburgh, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Alnwick and beyond. We had a perfect family holiday and would definitely return.
"We had a great stay at Mill House."
Perfect for a large family get together.
"Absolutely stunning property."
The owners were very helpful and went above and beyond to meet our needs. We would highly recommend this property, especially as a place to stay with friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Hi Beth, so glad you had a great week. Appreciate your feedback. Susie Property Owner
"Absolutely amazing place."
The place is actually bigger than what the pictures make it out to be. Kitchen was fully equipped which was amazing Would definitely recommend to anyone and will be back
Really glad you had a great stay at Mill House. Property Owner
"Great house in a very quiet location."
Plenty of hot water and super king size beds, The latter is a real bonus as so many holiday properties have standard doubles and/or uncomfortable beds. Facilities within the house are generally excellent but I haven’t given full marks as there was a dripping tap in the kitchen and small leak from a heated towel rail in one bedroom. The owner said their plumber was away which is why they hadn’t been fixed so I assume these issues have now been sorted. Other two issues were a lack of medium and small cooking trays/oven dishes and the fact that the water was brown which we assumed was because it came from a well. The water was drinkable but we ended up buying filtered water for drinking (though did use house water in the kettle and for cooking). The owner did leave a couple of bottles of water as they realised some people may find the brown colour unpalatable. But none of the issues listed would put us off going again. It really is a great place to stay - and the location is handy for lots of local attractions. The village is excellent with two pubs and a brilliant village shop selling local produce. Would throughly recommend this house.
"Very good communication with the owner , when we had a problem with the shower it was fixed immediately and the owner kept us totally in the loop ."
"This is an extremely well appointed property with quality fixtures and fittings."
Very spacious. The only suggestion we had was that coasters were added as we were not comfortable putting hot plates and cups onto the tables. Had an amazing stay and thoroughly recommend this property.
"We loved the Barn, it was perfect for 3 small children - plenty of space and safe places to play."
The Barn was within easy reach of all that Northumberland has to offer. The owners were very helpful.
"Mill House was simply amazing!"
We had a lovely stay and would love to come back. The house was so clean and well equipped and we really appreciated the tea, coffee, biscuits, bread and butter and especially the Prosecco.! You made us feel so welcome. We were sad to leave. We loved the location and will miss the chicken !!! Thank you for everything.
"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.
"A lovely week in this fabulous property, very spacious and comfortable."
Maybe more comfortable seating in the garden. Will definitely be back.
"The holiday let was of excellent standard."
lovely big open space had everything we needed as well as been very comfortable and a lovey touch with the welcome pack of tea coffee etc especially after long journey
"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!
"My family and I all enjoyed staying at Mill House, plenty of room and very comfortable."
We hope to return in the near future.
"Lovely cottage with plenty of room for 8 people."
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.
"Super cottage with lots of space for a large family"
"Great location and very spacious house."
A bit odd to bring our own double duvet as 4 double beds are advertised. Some comfortable garden chairs would be a good addition. We had a great stay.
"Lovely holiday the cottage was really nice so spacious and comfortable spotless clean."
The area had lots to do and see really beautiful loved the wildlife we saw from the house highly recommend to all age groups
"What a pity some of the windows are blocked with window film this makes rooms darker and not so pleasing."
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. Pool table and wifi well used. Some of the entrance tracks need holes filling for an ordinary car Hosts answered queries very quickly, very quiet but pubs / restaurants close by
"Really lovely holiday home, only things missing were dish cloths and sponges but I realise that was due to Covid!"
Very spacious, clean & quiet. My girl's loved the pool table and dog loved the garden. Such a beautiful location too.
"Great house for a getaway."
The only noise was from the cows and the birds. House was very spacious and comfortable particularly the bedrooms.Would definitely be happy to stay again.
"Fabulous place, really well equipped and really helpful hosts."
"What a find!"
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.
"Lovely property it suited our family weekend plenty of room"
"A great weekend spent at Mill House."
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.
"The cottage is huge and has everything u need for cooking."
The beds are so comfortable and clean.
"This was our second visit to Mill House, Lowick and we all had an amazing time."
The property is lovely, spacious with great facilities and the pool table was enjoyed by both the big and little kids! The location is great for exploring Northumberland, we had lots of fun and we will be back again, thank you!
"It did not affect us but the tap water is very yellow as sourced from a bore hole which would possibly upset others."
Would benefit from a cupboard in the kitchen as there was nowhere to put our food. A very spacious and comfortable house and one we would highly recommend
"Cottage was lovely."
Very clean and spacious. Facilities excellent for a large family group of 7. Spoke to owner a couple of times who was courteous and efficiently resolved our queries. Would definitely recommend this cottage as a peaceful haven and a perfect place to stay from which to discover the tourist attractions and beautiful Northumberland countryside and coast.
"Lovely spacious house room for everyone."
Have used sykes before and have not been disappointed. Would thoroughly recommend Mill House.
"This is the 2nd time that I have stayed in this fabulous barn conversion and have thoroughly enjoyed my stay each time."
I cannot fault the accommodation which is very spacious and decorated to a high standard with more than enough crockery, cutlery etc for the maximum number of people staying. Mill House is ideally situated to visit all the fabulous tourist places on and around the east coast - an absolute gem of a place!
"Excellent massive cottage --- large bedrooms and great living spaces - quite remote."
"Outstanding accommodation in a beautiful area and great location."
Abundant wildlife, seals, deer, hates all seen regularly and wild. Could not recommend this high enough. Excellent!
"It was a very warm and welcoming cottage."
Lovely views and surroundings with ample parking.
"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.
"We stayed at Mill House over Christmas and it was a fantastic place to spend time with friends and family."
The living spaces are very sociable, the kitchen's well equipped, and the bedrooms are large and comfortable. The location is relatively remote, which is what we wanted, but there are some lovely walks and Lowick is a 5 minute drive away. Recommended!
"Stunning property, big and bright rooms, lots of space."
Close to stunning areas for walks inc Bamburgh & Coldstream. Will be back
"Mill House was perfect!"
It is in a lovely setting and is really spacious and well-planned. It is beautifully furnished and the kitchen was a joy to be in--not something I've ever said before of a holiday home! We felt welcome and enjoyed the surrounding countryside. The village of Lowick has a lovely shop and good Dining Pub. The weather was mixed but the house was warm and sheltered. That and the Northumbrian Coast and scenery made it a great holiday.
"Mill house exceeded our expectations in every way."
A beautiful really spacious and well equipped barn conversion in a stunning location which although rural was only just over a mile from a lovely village with an excellent shop and two good pubs. Even though we were a group of 8 adults there was ample room for all.
"Second time staying in mill house and will be staying again we all love it even ..."
Second time staying in mill house and will be staying again we all love it even the teenagers couldn’t wait to get back there it’s a home from home with the added extra of the pool table which is a big hit with the whole family The pictures don’t do it justice it’s such a lovely big house with everything you could possibly need
"EXCELLENT BARN CONVERSION."
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. If we go north again this will be the place stay.
"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.
"Mill House is a wonderful place for a holiday."
It is so comfortable and spacious and a perfect location for exploring Northumberland on bicycles. We absolutely loved it! I highly recommend this property.Thank you so much for a great time!
"The cottage was really good and comfortable for the eight of us staying."
It would have been nice to have a few cleaning products for the kitchen and bathroom as we were unable to clean after a meal or shower. The cottage is a bit way out from the village for anyone who likes to walk to the shop or pub and the approaching road is full of potholes, not everyone has a 4x4 vehicle .Having said that we had a great holiday and the men loved pool table.
"Our party consisted of 4 couples the house was way above what we expected very large and spotless."
The only fault we found was the pool table was in the same room as the tv so very noisy and impossible to hear when someone was playing. Having said that we all had a very enjoyable break in a super place.
"2nd time we've been to Mill House."
Words cannot do justice to how good it is in all respects - location, cleanliness, facilities ( pool table being my favourite!).
"A wonderful cottage that all 8 of our party enjoyed, pool table was a big hit, kitchen well equiped."
Positive communication with owners. Only downside of booking with Sykes is charge for using a credit card for payment.
"One of the best cottages we've had."
Kitchen was amazing and pool table a real bonus. We hope to come back next year.
"Had a little problem with the hot water in the 2 ensuites."
i couldnt seem to regulate the temperature and it was very hot.
"Excellent property which was like home from home, the kitchen was well equipped and cooking Christmas lunch was no problem."
The house was lovely and warm and there was plenty of hot water and there was space for everyone to chill out in.
"An amazing property in a beautiful location, perfect for a family gathering."
"The large rooms were great and the kids loved the jacuzzi bath."
"A high quality holiday home."
Spacious and well equipped. Ideal for our party of nine.
"We often book holiday cottages and say the owners should stay in the cottage to see what else is needed to make it comfortable ."
In this case the owner had thought of everything including a very generous Welcome basket .Thanks
"Great stay in a rural setting away from busy, day to day life!"
"Absolutely exceeded our expectations."
This as an emotional trip for my family and Mill House was simply perfect for us. The owner was more than helpful with my special requests. The House was excactly as described, if not better. There were many special finishing touches that made it special - flowers on the table, welcome pack which included Wine, biscuits, etc and even a note on the chalk board to my guests and I. Mill house is huge, yet very warm, comfortable and Cosy. We all just loved it. Thank you to Susie and Skye cottages for making our weekend memorable.
"This cottage was the best cottage for large groups I have found yet."
It allowed everyone equal comfort in sleeping arrangements and bathroom facilities. The kitchen was really spacious and well equipped. The welcoming pack extremely generous. The cottage was exceptional value for money.
"Great location for the coast and inland days out."
Very comfortable, very private and just ideal in every way. We would high recommend a day out to Floors castle, Kelso,
"A lovely, well presented property."
Home from home, we had a wonderful, relaxing holiday. A great place to gather together our family and we particulalry loved the kitchen!

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.
