We are Gill and Gordon. Our beautiful cottage has been in our family for the past 19 years and we have enjoyed holidaying every year with our kids at this magical place on the Northumbrian Coast.
Gill purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Gill chose Belford
We have family connections in Northumberland so this has been an ideal base for visiting family while enjoying a relaxing holiday in the most beautiful surroundings. We love the rural setting but also enjoy being close enough to the surrounding towns and villages where we can appreciate good food, the stunning coastline and also the history which Northumberland is famous for from the story of Grace Darling, to the monks of Lindisfarne and onto the spectacular Bamburgh Castle which you can't fail to be impressed by. We love to walk whether it be along the beach, or further inland to the crags above Belford, St Cuthberts cave or the beautiful Langleeford just outside Wooler and all within a 20 minute drive from our cottage.
What makes this Cottage unique
Millstone cottage is set within a small hamlet, there is private parking, a beautiful flowing burn which runs past the back garden and from where you can enjoy a spot of fishing and here is where you may also spot the spectacular Kingfisher. We are located on Budle Bay which is a very popular spot for bird watchers and from here you can begin your walk along the coastline which will take you to Bamburgh then onto Seahouses

Lovely, homely and comfortable cottage with an exceptional garden and location.
Highly recommend this cottage. Very well equipped with a fabulous garden and setting. The conservatory is an added luxury. Very helpful owner and neighbours.
Thank you very much indeed for your fabulous review. Lovely to hear that you had such an enjoyable and comfortable stay.
Stayed for two nights 27th 28th September with friends spending a long awaited short break together. The cottage provided all that we needed and was a tranquil place to spend our evenings, BBQ first night and very good curry night second after long day at Holly Island and Bamburgh Castle. Weather was perfect with a stunning sunset on the first night watched looking over the bay towards Holly Island. We had a thoroughly relaxed time in this delightful cottage, thank you Gillian for allowing us the opportunity to use your immaculate wee place.
Thank you so much for your fabulous review, so glad you had such a great stay in beautiful Northumberland.
Lovely cottage in beautiful area
Everything we needed was available in cottage. Beautiful garden right next to river - our toddler loved seeing the ducks swim by every morning at breakfast time :-)
Sounds like you had a great week in beautiful Northumberland and so glad the cottage gave you everything you needed. Thank you.
Great cottage and location
We have had a great week at the lovely Millstone Cottage. It was spotlessly clean, with everything you could want for a stay. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck with a drink and dining. The conservatory was great for breakfast and reading when the weather was less than great. The eating local recommendations from the owner were excellent for breakfast, dinner and fish and chips on the seashore.
The cottage is ideally situated for day trips all over Northumberland and we even did a trip to Edinburgh. Final word goes to the stunning beauty of the Northumberland coast and beaches, with a visit to Lindisfarne Holy Island on a warm sunny day one of the highlights.
Sounds like to had a very busy week visiting beautiful Northumberland. Just delighted that your stay at our lovely cottage was so enjoyable, thank you very much for your fabulous review.

Beautiful and Stunning
The cottage is gorgeous, cosy and homely. Everything you could need is here. The burn outside the cottage was a source of natural entertainment. We were lucky enough to spot a rare bird, Little Bittern, which caused a flurry of bird watchers who were the nicest people.
