  • "A very enjoyable stay."

    The lodge was located close enough to the many historical gems on this part of the Northumberland coast. The owner kept us well supplied with logs & the heating kept us warm & cosy when the temperature began to drop at night. In the ground stood Preston Pele tower, which was a short walk from the lodge. Fascinating history with pleasant hourly chimes!! Well worth a stay.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at West Lodge, it was perfect for our family, and a great base to explore Northumberland from."

    The setting was tranquil and beautiful, out in the countryside, and we really enjoyed going for walks in the wood in the evening, and visitng the tower. Inside, the property was spacious, nicely decorated, and had everything we needed, no problems. Friendly hosts, would definitely recommend.

  • "A comfortable cottage in a fabulous location."

    Our children loved being able to go for walks in the woods and explore the castle tower in the grounds and so did we. The accommodation had everything we needed and was only a few minutes drive from beautiful quiet beaches at Seahouses. Harry, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. Thank you.

  • "Lovely cottage in such a great spot."

    It was nice to meet and briefly chat to the owner. The cottage matched our expectations and was perfect for our needs. One thing to mention is the lack of a visitor book at the property. It’s a relatively minor thing, and we get that we live in a digital age, but we feel that a visitor book in a traditional cottage like this adds to the experience; getting other people’s pointers/tips/experiences of their stay in the area really helps and provide flavour. Makes the stay less transactional, more shared experience, where we can also impart our own tips/experiences for future guests.

  • "This was our third visit and we love it."

    Nice and cosy if weather bad but great when the sun shines. We liked the addition of gates to make the garden secure for our new dog. Access to the grounds is a bonus and we always enjoy the Pele tower. The location is great for getting to the coast and wonderful quiet beaches. Alnwick is just 20 minutes drive and handy for supplies. Lovely holiday altogether and we would definitely return a fourth time!

  • "Comfortable, well-equipped cottage with central heating and a wood fire (logs supplied by the owner)."

    Close to Low Newton (Ship Inn is good for kippers and kipper pate, home-brewed beers), and Embleton (very good village shop with fresh bread, vegetables, meat, wine as well as being a Post Office). The cottage is on a small estate with Preston Tower, an ancient pele tower, at its centre. The garden and woods are open to residents in the cottage. Very friendly and helpful owner, especially when we had an encounter with a pothole which meant cutting our holiday short.

  • "A beautiful property in a lovely location."

    Almost everything we needed and the access to nearby places was excellent. The lodge is very well equipped but I would add a freezer and maybe a larger TV for winter evenings. The hot water pressure was very low. That said, we would return in heartbeat.

  • "Staying at West Lodge was a most enjoyable experience."

    The personal touches that were left for us by the housekeeper was very thoughtful. The property itself was clean and warm and spacious enough for our needs and those of our dogs. The pressure in the hot taps was perhaps a little low, but nothing that spoiled our living experience. The siting and immediate surrounding area of the property was delightfully quiet. Our expectations were met!

About the location


Beadnell 3 miles; Alnwick 9 miles.

Chathill is a small rural hamlet comprised of little more than a farm and a few houses. It is sited only 3 miles from attractive and peaceful Beadnell, which lies on one of the most beautiful stretches of Northumberland's magnificent Heritage Coast. Once a smugglers’ haven, Beadnell is now a fishing village, popular with holidaymakers who come to enjoy its pretty harbour. Central to all rural North Northumberland and within easy driving distance of the nearby glorious sandy beaches between Seahouses (where boat rides can be booked for the spectacular Farne Islands) and Bamburgh Castle, Alnwick, Holy Island and the Scottish Borders, there is plenty to see and do.

Note: Dogs must be kept on a lead in the grounds of the property please. Note: Use of the estate tennis court subject to availability and by arrangement. Note: There is a low wall along the roadside of the gardens so please bear this in mind when booking. Note: If you wish the twin to be made up as a king-size please let us know
