I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area. Reviewed by NeilJan 2022 "Due to a cancellation the owners of Rock Mill generously offered us an upgrade so our review is based on Newton Retreat." The house was very well equipped clean and comfortable and Jeremy the owner helpful and friendly, in a lovely position with views over the fields where we saw hares and deer. Sykes however had not informed the hosts that were arriving a day late even though I had been assured when booking they would do and I even sent a reminder email; no reply. The hosts were concerned and messaged me to see if we were alright. Reviewed by JaneOct 2021 "Fantastic experience @ Rock Mill Cottage." Excellent facilities and so comfortable. Really loved the log burner and had it on all the time we were in during the evenings. Logs provided in rear shed so only kindling to buy. Lovely welcome and pack from owner Jeremy upon arrival. Extremely attentive and encouraged us to enquire about anything. Great location for exploring this beautiful part of England and the world. Can’t wait to stay here again.

So peaceful! Plenty of outside space to the front and rear of the property as well as a large grassed area to the front. The location is perfect for exploring all of the local sights. Comfortable beds and everything you could need in the property including a basket of goodies on arrival. Owners are helpful and friendly should you need them.

The cottage was beautiful and had everything we could have needed. So peaceful. Reviewed by GaelMay 2021 "We’ve had a lovely few days at Rock Mill Cottage." The cottage was well appointed and comfortable and a great base to explore the beautiful countryside. Low Newton by the Sea has a beautiful beach and is only a five minute drive away. The bed in the master bedroom isn’t ideal for anyone over about 5ft 8 though due to the style of bed - it has a foot board at the bottom - that’s the only thing I would change. Reviewed by LucyOct 2020 "Very well equipped, with more supplies than we expected (eg dishwasher tablets, aluminium foil, etc)." Wood for the stove was also appreciated. Only complaint - bed was a little uncomfortable particularly for me as I am 6ft 2in tall and my feet were against the base board. Reviewed by MichaelOct 2020 "We enjoyed a lovely week at Rock Mill cottage." It is perfectly situated for access to the gorgeous villages and beaches of Northumberland and close to Alnwick too for access to a larger range of shops etc. The cottage itself is extremely comfortable with everything you would expect or need. The owners live on the same site and were very friendly and helpful. There are 2 other holiday properties there as well and plenty of space to accommodate all. Reviewed by ElizabethAug 2020 "Just had a week at Rock Mill Cottage." Fantastic location, lovely cottage and extremely friendly and helpful hosts, thank you!

Brilliant, loved every minute of it and will definitely be back at some point. Reviewed by JoJul 2020 "The cottage was lovely and we were made to feel very welcome."

Reviewed by SandraNov 2019 "We had such a lovely stay at Rock Mill Cottage - the owners were welcoming, friendly and really helpful (Elaine even hung our washing out for us!" ) The cottage itself was cosy and well equipped, and had everything we needed for a stay with two young children. We would highly recommend it! Reviewed by HannahJun 2019 "A wonderful property in a beautiful, quiet location amongst fields and wildlife, yet close to the coast and nearby villages with their great pubs and food." Great host, helpful and friendly upon arrival, and on hand for any issues if needed thereafter. We’d love to return some day. Reviewed by JamesMay 2019 "Beautiful cottage in gorgeous peaceful location but also close to beaches and local town of Alnwick." Owners were very friendly and helpful. Loved it. Reviewed by FionaApr 2019 "The cottage was very cosy, clean and comfortable." Our only problem was that the cottage was not that easy to find. We arrived in the dark and there was no sign at the end of the lane to direct us. There was a pole for the sign but no sign of the name of the property on it! Reviewed by TimothySep 2018 "Lovely location - quiet but not far to many different places to visit." Owner very welcoming but then allowed us privacy during the week.
