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. The Cider Press was delightful and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. July 2012.
  2. Excellent accommodation and very spacious. Room for people to be private as well as get together around a huge dining table or be cosy and comfortable together in the lounge. The Aga in the kitchen (which has to be left on at all times) ensures the space is very warm which will be wonderful in winter/cold weather but is rather over-powering in the summer/hot weather. The local village (only a 5 minute walk or 10 minute stroll)has a pub which is very welcoming and provides excellent food. The location is brilliant in terms of reaching all the local tourist attractions/beaches - only 5 minutes from the A1 but miles away in terms of atmosphere/surroundings. Sept 2011.
  3. Great property - spacious, clean and brilliant for extended family holiday - we all had our own ’wing’ almost and each couple their own bath/shower room. Could not fault it. We didn’t have a very small child (nearly 5 years) but I could imagine the hot AGA could be an issue for very small children. June 2011.
  4. Exceptional accommodation, a high standard of fitting out and facilities. Nov 2010.
  5. First of all it’s location, in the countryside. The size of the property, it was huge. All that I needed for a perfect holiday was included in the house. My description, a dream house. Oct 2010.
  6. Beautiful location, spacious well presented property, good sized rooms, well equipped.Loved the Aga. Sept 2010.
  7. Beautiful, spacious and well equipped. A real home from home. fixtures and fittings to a very high quality. Aug 2010.
  8. So spacious - ideal for a young family. The magnificent treehouse was really amazing and the children loved it. July 2010.
  9. This property definitely has the ’wow’ factor - it has a beautiful first floor lounge which is light and spacious and the quality of the fixtures and fittings is first class. These include luxurious bath and shower rooms, a very handy utility room and an Aga in the kitchen/dining room which would make this a wonderful option for an out of season break as it made the whole area very snug and warm. The immaculately kept garden space has plenty of room for children to play (though it is not gated). The on site tree house was a bonus for our grandsons who absolutley loved it. June 2010.
  10. Spacious, airy, excellent value. June 2010.
  11. Spacious, well equipped and furnished. Beautiful setting, fantastic weather helped! June 2010.
  12. It was beautifully furnished and we loved the high quality of the soft furnishings. The aga kept it warm and the new tree house was an attractive addition. May 2010.
  13. The cottage was welcoming and better than the pictures on the web! The cottage was accessible and child friendly. It was well appointed and quiet too. The peacocks were a nice touch. Couldn’t work the heating out though (thermostat). Dec 2009.
  14. Very warm, modern and spacious except in the showers. Some occasional tables needed in sitting area tv and dvd instructions needed improving bathrobes and slippers, towels and bed linen great. Dec 2009.
  15. The property was exceptional, very clean, beautifully decorated and the added extra’s made it very special. Nov 2009.
  16. Beautiful accommodation that has everything you could possible need, very quite and remote. Oct 2009.
  17. It was beautifully furnished to a high standrard throughout, clean, easy to find, a good distance to major attractions in the area & felt very comfy to be in the cottage they had good facilities for our daughter in terms of high chair & cot bed. Sept 2009.
  18. The property was spacious and beautifully furnished through out. Sept 2009.
  19. The accommodation was just as described. Very comfortable and all the equipment worked well e.g. washing machine, aga etc. We would certainly consider returning. Sept 2009.
  20. The property was very clean and tidy with loads of space to chill out both in side the property and also out side on the patio area. We where only a short walk to the local pub where they did nice choice of meals at night, the landlord and landlady where very nice to and where very helpful. June 2009.
