The Mill House

Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland

You're almost on the water at this elegant restoration with heavenly views to Holy Island. Brilliant for bird watchers, walkers, star-gazers


6 beds


4 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


Unbend here with heavenly views across to Holy Island: birds soar overhead and the waves nibble at the bottom of the garden. Restored elegantly by the owner, blessed with underfloor heating and high insulation, your stone cottage is protected from any bracing north easterlies. Spread out with books, board games and a TV in a large, light sitting room with three plump sofas and windows framing more knock-out views. Cooks will be happy banging about in a snazzy kitchen with Shaker-style cupboards, serious pans, good china and a four-oven cooker; and there’s a proper dining room with a table big enough for long lazy meals. No arguments here over who gets which bedroom because they are all big and bright with ocean or garden views, soothing colours and white cotton on firm mattresses; each has a sparkling bathroom with tiled floors and lots of thick towels. Bird watchers will root themselves in the sunny conservatory overlooking well-tended gardens (don’t forget to bring binoculars), walkers can set off from the door, and there are fishing villages, castles and wild beaches to discover.

The Stables is a wonderful base for exploring this beautiful part of Northumbria - warm, comfortable, well-equipped and spotlessly clean with super- comfortable beds. The views from the conservatory and garden are special. Pauline, who handled our booking, could not have been more helpful, agreeing to a date switch, then back again, to cater for last minute problems and promptly returning stuff left behind, all with extremely good grace. We would recommend the cottage unreservedly ( and liked the look of the Mill House too which is right on the shore) . A fantastic break.
