About Roz and Gerald Dickinson
Tilery House has been in the ownership of the Dickinson family since the early 1960's. The property was lovingly renovated from 2003 - 2007 so that we can continue to enjoy the benefits of living in Chatton. Positive comments from guests constantly remind us how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful & tranquil place. We have invested a huge amount of time, thought & effort into the renovation of Tilery House in an effort to retain the character & beauty of the property. Our love of natural materials such as stone, slate and oak have influenced both the interior and exterior of the property. Guests have commented upon the attention to detail. The Annexe is a cosy home from home with lots of paintings hanging & high quality furnishings.
Roz and Gerald Dickinson purchased this Apartment in 1993
Why Roz and Gerald Dickinson chose Chatton
When the opportunity to buy Tilery House (& The Annexe) with its outstanding views arose, we snapped it up. The dream of living in a rural location with a huge variety of wildlife visiting the garden has surpassed our expectations. Last year we had over a hundred different birds including woodpeckers, nuthatch, tree creeper and various tits and finches, many feeding just outside the living room window. Owls, partridge, pheasants, boxing hares and occasionally deer visit the 1.5 acre garden. Walking to the pub in the village and standing on the old stone bridge, I have been fortunate enough to see otters. Walking home on a clear night you will definitely be treated to a velvety black star filled sky and if you are particularly lucky the uplifting sight of a shooting star.
What makes this Apartment unique
The beauty of The Annexe is its central location which enables guests to explore in a different direction every day, whether it be walking by a river in the National Park (4 miles away), cycling on deserted roads (we have bikes you can borrow), horse riding (beach rides are available locally), visiting castles, golden sandy beaches, National Trust properties, country houses, or walking in the Cheviots. There is fishing a very short walk away or I have a stretch of river in Wooler which you can use. Locally there are golf courses, tennis courts archaeological sites and much much more. Round your day off with a bar meal and head home to relax in the comfort of the Annexe. If you would like to go to a nightclub or rave, north Northumberland is probably not for you. Hope to meet you so

Great - but check you are OK with the stairs
This is a nice property, well equipped with fantastic views and birdlife. It's a good base to explore the area, both coast and countryside.
During our stay the sofa was replaced (not because we complained) but the new one was so much more comfortable. We also found the bed very comfortable - an added bonus
Downstairs is just the compact kitchen and entrance area. Everything is upstairs and the staircase ,which is on a bend, might prove difficult for anyone with restricted mobility. The dining table is upstairs, so unless the weather is good enough to eat outside, you'll need to carry trays of food up these stairs. Not an issue for us but could be for some.
Comfortable friendly great location.
Cosy, comfortable apartment. Stunning views across to the Cheviots. Very relaxing
Tilery at Chatton
Can't fault it.
Excellent location, friendly hosts
Great hosts, really friendly and helpful. Great location mid-way between the Cheviot hills and the coast. Good cycling territory. Slightly quirky accommodation (tiny kitchen on ground floor; first floor: small bedroom with double (not king-size) bed but plenty of drawer space with wardrobe on landing; shower room (no bath) with plenty of hot water; good sized living room). Overall comfortable and with great views over the countryside from the living room. Really enjoyed our stay.
Wonderful relaxing holiday, excellent facilities and location. Will be returning next year, would recommend to anyone. Great hosts who are not too intrusive.
Wonderful base for N. Northumbria & Scottish Borders
Wonderful duplex for a couple, tastefully decorated and fully equipped. Fabulous views and wildlife. Hosts are very friendly and hospitable. Village a 15 min walk away with Post Office for essentials and a nice pub/eatery. More extensive facilities 5m away. Ideal for coast and countryside.
The miles of unspoilt Northumbrian coastline are less than 10 miles away. Guests will enjoy the beautiful beach at Bamburgh which offers miles of white sand nestling beneath the imposing castle.
