Description

A delightful cottage designed with family-friendly holidays in mind, in this stunning development at Spindlestone Mill, a mile from the sea, and 2.5 miles from Bamburgh with its glorious castle standing watch over expansive beaches to the north and south.

A stone holiday cottage, built over 3 floors, a conversion of the grain stores associated with the mill itself and offering spacious holiday accommodation for up to 10 people. Five flexible bedrooms allow for a choice of Super/King doubles or twin rooms, one bedroom is ground floor with an adjacent ground floor shower room, 1 first floor bedroom has ensuite shower room and there is a separate bathroom with bath / shower over, serving the other 3 bedrooms. The cottage is extremely well furnished and equipped with oak flooring to entrance hall, both lounges, kitchen and dining area, the bedrooms and halls are carpeted throughout, and bathrooms have tiled floors. In addition there is a super "attic" playroom, snug, lads' den, furnished for enjoyment, including a flat screen tv, bean bags, toys, board games, original beams and loads of character. Bring your own dressing-up gear and it's a pirate ship, a haunted house, a cowboy den ....we'll leave it to your imagination. The property is underfloor heated, and has a log burning stove for added comfort.

An ideal property for families or friends getting together, or can be booked along with other Spindlestone properties for larger gatherings. Well behaved dogs are welcome at Millkeepers Cottage.

Reviews

What a lovely, lovely house. Beautifully equipped with everything that a large group of people could possibly want or need. Stylishly decorated, comfortable beds, spotlessly clean and spacious. Kitchen large and airy, with 2 fridges (one of which we used for alcohol and Easter Eggs!) and a freezer. All the essentials, such as salt - 30th April 2019
Excellent accommodation for family gathering with space for everyone. Good location to access walks, beach, coastal towns, Northumbria's castles and visitor high spots. - 31st October 2018
Great accommodation for 8 adults (could be 10) and 1 dog. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of room for cooking and eating. Very near the coast and the A1 so easy access for sightseeing. Only problem with showers, not easy to keep at the right temperature. - 9th May 2018
The accommodation was spacious and comfortable enough to accommodate 8 adults and 2 infants. The bedrooms were large with comfortable beds. The kitchen had enough utensils and pans but lacked serving dishes. The house was warm but there wasn't enough control over the temperature. Quiet area within walking distance of the sea, if you like walking, otherwise a 10 minute drive, to good coffee shops and pubs. Plenty of parking space adjacent to the accommodation. - 4th April 2018
We were looking for a large cottage near the coast to cater for 10 of us. We found it in Millkeepers Lodge. When we walked in the door we knew it was going to be nice but didn’t realise just how lovely it was until we walked around. It was cosy, comfy and just fabulous. We had four girls with us ages 9-12 and they loved it. The den was ‘their room’. We were out every day and it was great to come back into the comfort of the cottage which had everything you needed. The cottage is near Budle Bay and only a couple of miles from Bamburgh so its ideally located for most of the places you nee to visit in Northumbria. We had a great week and would definitely go back. Thank you to the owners for keeping it so lovely. - 20th February 2018
We hired the entire property for the week, including the whole of Spindleford Mill and the Millkeeper's Cottage. It was wonderful! The whole property is beautiful! As each visitor arrived I loved showing them around and seeing their reactions to this excellent find. The Mill is on 4 floors, with each floor being a self-contained flat. Every flat is well-kitted out and absolutely gorgeous. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into the layout of the flats to make them convenient and a pleasure to be in. The personal touches were really welcoming: milk in the fridges, tea, coffee and sugar, bread rolls and jam ready to greet you after your journey. The ground floor of the Mill, the Wheel Rooms, has a kitchen that was well-equipped enough and large enough to cater for our group of 35 people. All the appliances were modern and in working order. There is no garden but each flat has a patio or balcony to sit outside. Plenty of space for parking. Dogs were welcome and there are lovely walks near the house. Bamburgh is 4 miles away. Seahouses is only a few miles away and had enough shops for our catering. There is loads to do and see in the area. - 20th October 2017
I was told that some arias were not as clean, as was expected. In all other respects the property was ideal, - 9th September 2017
Millkeeper's Cottage provided us with excellent accommodation in an area of outstanding beauty. Its close proximity to varied castles, and interesting towns and villages. We managed to complete two Easter egg hunts - Low Newton-by-the-Sea and Cragside. Cragside is a remarkable house with a beautiful estate drive with plenty to engage all ages. We loved the walks to Budle Bay from the property and to Bamburgh. Also visited Holy Island and Berwick-on-Tweed. A wide range of inns and restaurants to visit. The property also has red squirrels in close proximity and they were not photo shy! - 25th April 2017
Very satisfied with the accommodation lovely rooms with fabulous beds. The boys loved the den and my little granddaughter was so excited by everything, she is only 2 ! Great kitchen and dining room everything you could ever need in the well stocked house. Loved the the raised decking area with BBQ . I slept with the window open listening to the river so relaxing. And to top it all we had wonderful weather. Wifi good in living area but not upstairs but actually it didn't matter nice not to be tethered to the rat race!! Highly recommended Thank you do hope it's available next year as I saw the apartments are for sale opposite the cottages . - 9th August 2016
7 adults, 3 children and a baby enjoyed a family holiday at Millkeeper's Lodge. We found the property to be very clean and comfortable, and the bedrooms particularly spacious. Large well-equipped kitchen with everything you could possibly need, if I were being really picky, some of the items did need to be replaced e.g. grater wasn't sharp, knives needed sharpening, but these were very small things. Having two fridges was a nice touch. We had a problem with the washer/dryer during our stay, however, when we contacted the owner, he was so helpful and even allowed us to use the laundry which was a massive bonus having 4 children with us. Large dining room well able to cope with 10 people around it. The lounge was smaller than expected, but adequate for everyone adults to relax in during the evenings. Downstairs shower room, en-suite shower room upstairs and main bathroom were exactly what we needed. It would be helpful to have a small stock of toilet rolls available but again, a small issue. The playroom upstairs was well used by the children, (and adults on one occasion when football was on!). One small negatives were the smell in the kitchen, I think it was from the propane gas or boiler, but not sure what could be done about this. Overall, we had a brilliant time and would love to return! - 22nd June 2016
We enjoyed our stay at Millkeeper's Cottage. The location was good for the area that we wished to explore. Being close to the river meant that there was often a damp, unpleasant smell but it did not spoil our stay. The cottage provided everything we required, apart from a bottle opener that worked!! The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of fridge space and utensils. Unfortunately, many of the pans and the cooker itself were not clean and needed to be thoroughly washed before we could use them. We appreciate that pets are welcome at the cottage but unfortunately there was a lot of pet hair in corners of rooms and the fabric sofa did smell of dog. A more thorough clean would have made the cottage more welcoming. The Super King beds were very comfortable and all the bedrooms were pleasant. The couple in the ground floor bedroom would have appreciated a larger chest of drawers so that they could have unpacked properly for the week. The en-suite shower was lovely and although the other two were adequate, they were not very powerful. We really appreciated the lovely welcome pack and would like to suggest that it would be a nice touch to provide a more substantial amount of wood for the log burner. We needed to go back out to buy very expensive wood from the garage on the first night which was a pity after a long journey! Overall, the cottage is very pleasant and we enjoyed our stay. The problems were generally minor. Thank you. - 12th April 2016
Very nice property, finished to a very high standard. Worked very well with the Mill for a large reunion. Decking out back is a real sun catcher. Great position. - 11th September 2015
This is a lovely place to stay. Our family holidayed here in the 70's as children and went back as adults it is still amazing now but a lot had changd from the earlier days. A nice decking area for a bbq. The welcome pack was a nice thought. Lovely location and lots of walks. Ideal for visiting other northumberland tourist spots.the owner let us have a look around the appartments which too look amazing. We will definitely be booking up again for a break next year. - 6th June 2015
9 Photographers from Harlow in Essex enjoyed a very comfortable stay. The cottage is close to all the main photographic areas with plenty of room inside to not get under each others feet. The downstairs bathroom could do with a shelf rather than putting things on the cistern but this is the only thing we could find to be negative about. Would certainly book again, never had such comfortable beds!! and super duvets. - 13th March 2015
Delightful property in an excellent location. Short drive to Bamburgh or a lovely walk across the fields. The house was well equipped for our families and the dogs. Lovely extras which make you feel very welcome. Don't forget to go out on a clear night to see the stars with no light pollution they are amazing. Highly recommend. - 3rd March 2015
Very comfortable and well equipped house for 9 of us and a dog, in an excellent location. Wifi was down in the area to start with - some of us were pleased about this!! - 12th August 2014
This was an ideal property for a group of friends to celebrate a 40th Birthday. The area has fantastic beaches great restaurants and plenty to fill the days. - 3rd June 2014
