Property Description

"A collection of fine cottages.. set within the grounds of a stunning Victorian Gothic-revival stately home.."

Dating back to 1703, this large secluded country hall is set in 8 acres of land, enjoying a walled garden, croquet lawn and woodland for exploring. Together with the twelve stone-built cottages, it lies in a location sure to delight each generation of visitors - set in the heart of Northumberland, close to the rolling hills and breathtaking coastline. The grounds around the hall lead straight to public footpaths with wonderful local walks starting at the door.
Set inland midway between Beadnell and Seahouses, it is perfectly located for exploring the magnificent Heritage coastline with lovely coastal walks. Alnwick, with its majestic castle (used in Harry Potter film), cobbled streets filled with inns, restaurants and shops is well worth a visit, whilst the romantic ruins of Dunstanburgh and Warkworth Castle are only a short drive away. Bamburgh (5 miles) is dominated by its fortress castle and has a much-photographed wide sandy beach. Seahouses, a thriving seaside village with a golden beach and little harbour, is a must for tasty fish and chips or kippers. From here a wildlife boat trip can be taken to the Farne Islands to visit the puffins and other seabirds, or visitors can explore Holy Island when the tide is out by driving over the man-made causeway. Golf, fishing and many AONB surround Ellingham. The Hall lies 26 miles from the Borders of Scotland and only 45 miles from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and is easily accessible from the A1. The quiet, picturesque village with friendly pub 600 yards is the ideal retreat in any season. Shop 5 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Lovely property. Much larger than I thought. All rooms comfortable. Even got used to the Aga. If its peace and quiet that you want, apart from the resident peacock, this is an ideal spot for a weekend break. April 2011.
  2. Beautiful setting, warm, cosy cottage. Oct 2010.
  3. Well laid out and comfortable. Good location. Sept 2010.
  4. Just what you want for an out of the way holiday cottage with great facilities. Sept 2010.
  5. Really good place to see Northumberland from. Very clean and well presented. We would love to stay again! June 2010.
  6. This cottage was great in every way, just what we were looking for, everything for your needs. June 2010.
  7. First rate accommodation, better than home! And an AGA! May 2010.
  8. Spacious, warm and comfortable. April 2010.
  9. The decoration, furniture etc were of a high standard. The property was in a quiet secluded situation with good views. April 2010.
  10. Very spacious, comfortable. Feb 2010.
  11. It was spacious, warm (in November!) and, bearing in mind we have a two-year-old girl, very child-friendly. In fact, it got a bit too warm in the kitchen at times because of the Aga. Nicely done out in a contemporary style. The only slight problem we had was when we tried to light the fire and a lot of smoke came back into the room and it refused to catch. But I spoke to the chap there and he said the chimney was due for a clean so that was presumably the problem. Nov 2009.
  12. Very high quality. Nov 2009.
  13. It was described to us as a Hansel and Gretelly type cottage by the lady who told us over the telephone how to get the key. She was right. We loved the look of it and loved the surroundings. Sept 2009.
  14. Beautifully appointed, we loved getting used to the Aga, lots of space and very peaceful. The only thing we weren’t so keen on was the bed - the mattress was very uncomfortable. Aug 2009.
  15. It was spacious, well-constructed and well-equipped. June 2009.
  16. This is a convenient base for a pleasant and, as yet, little known holiday area. June 2009.
  17. The property is beautiful and in a lovely secluded location. Although we were a party of adults, I can see that it would be ideal for a family as the children would be able to play very safely outside. May 2009.
