  • Mrs Mclean

    “We have spent many, many years renting cottages and apartments ; both in the UK and abroad and we can say that Windmill Cottage is far superior, to any we have stayed in before.”

    The cottage is ideally situated for exploring all that Northumberland has to offer. We would like to take this opportunity to thank their owners for the use of their beautiful ,well equipped and comfortable luxurious cottage.

The property

This barn conversion is situated on the west side of the A1, in North Charlton, an excellent touring base from which to explore Northumberland and its magnificent countryside surround.

Equally perfect for couples or friends, Watermill Cottage is a beautiful place to stay, with fabulous furnishings and a home from home feel throughout.

Arrive into the kitchen where you will be greeted by the lovely welcome pack, a chance to settle down and take in the delightful interior with refreshments to enjoy.

Granite counter-tops off-set the layout perfectly, down-lighters rest above, and a coffee maker is on hand too.

Continuing through the property, a cosy lounge awaits, home to a corner sofa, and a woodburning stove to bring warmth to those cooler nights.

The dining table is adjacent to French windows, leading out to the rear garden and patio area, letting in lots of natural light to the room.

Two bedrooms are located upstairs, each beautifully designed with A-frame beams, bedside tables, lamps, and a chest of drawers, to uphold the feel of the interior.

One of the beds also comes with a zip/link option should you wish to alter the set-up.

The bathroom matches that of a hotel standard, immaculately presented with both a bath and a shower, and complimentary White Company toiletries for a thoughtful finish.

At the front of the cottage is an enclosed graveled garden whilst at the rear is a small lawned garden, paved patio with table and chairs, accessed from the French windows leading out from the lounge.

The rear garden is west-facing so makes the most of the pretty Northumbrian sunsets.

The cottage is close to Bamburgh, Seahouses, Beadnell, Alnwick, Embleton.

Pets are very welcome here too.

The countryside surrounding North Charlton is extremely picturesque and the Cheviot foothills and National Park are only a short drive away.

All you need for a unique holiday experience.
