Overview

About the property

Sleeps 2,1 Bath - Cosy Lodge, Super Views, Wifi, Walking, Fishing, Wildlife

North Lodge is a charming gate lodge on the edge of the superb Milne Graden Estate. This cosy lodge has superb views across the Estate's parkland to the Cheviot Hills beyond and is a perfect spot to unwind and relax. The accommodation is deceptively spacious with a good sized double bedroom on the ground floor and just a five minute walk to the River Tweed, from which there is a super network of riverside walks.

A short drive or bracing walk from the cottage takes you to the picturesque village of Norham, a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award. Famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins, the village also has two pubs, a shop, baker and butcher selling an impressive selection of local meats, pies, cheeses, chutneys and even fishing flies. More extensive local amenities can be found in the historic town of Coldstream, 3 miles from North Lodge. The charming, ancient towns of Duns and Kelso are also nearby and Edinburgh is an easy day trip either about an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick upon Tweed.

Food fans will be delighted that North Lodge is close to two of the area's best restaurants; the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn, both renowned for sourcing the best local produce.

With fishing on one of the world's greatest salmon so close, North Lodge is an ideal base for fishing fanatics. The estate's own beat which is available to guests at additional cost (subject to availability) extends to about 1.4 miles of single bank fishing. Milne Graden is primarily a salmon beat but has good runs of grilse and sea trout through the summer months. North Lodge is within easy driving distance of other prime beats including Tillmouth, Lennel, Ladykirk and The Lees. A trout rod, reel and line are available on request.

North Lodge is also ideally situated for exploring Northumberland's stunning Heritage coastline, 25 miles of secluded rocky coves and protected golden sands that remain almost deserted even in the summer months. Some of our favourite spots include the stunning beach at Bamburgh, miles of pristine sand, protected by sand dunes and overlooked by the impressive Bamburgh Castle. The beach is very popular for walking, riding and surfing. The magnificent views from the cliff top walks at St Abb's Head are also well worth a visit. This National Nature Reserve is home to thousands of birds including guillemots, kittiwakes, shags and puffins.

On the way home, pop in for a pint of local ale at The Black Bull at Etal, Northumberland's only thatched pub, or let us arrange for dinner to be delivered to you, light the fire, pour yourself a wee dram and.... relax!
