Our Inspector's view
Mill House is a beautiful 16th century cottage, nestled by the river Coquet, providing a tranquil and stunning place to escape. Formerly part of The Guyzance Hall Estate, it was home to the mill manager and his family until the mid 1900’s. Hare Lodge is a private luxury log cabin getaway in our tranquil riverside setting. Our newly built cabin with 2 en-suite king size bedrooms, large open plan living/ kitchen area with a fresh Scandi feel is a perfect hideaway for that long weekend away or a week long break. Curl up in front of the danish log burner, or open the bi-fold doors leading out to private patio areas and outdoor fire pit in those summer months. Close to the main North-South East Coast train line, local station being Alnmouth, the stunning beaches and castles of the Northumberland coast are a 15 minute drive. The market towns of Alnwick, Morpeth and Rothbury are within 20 minutes. Golf courses to be played at Alnmouth, Warkworth, Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh. Wonderful cycling and walking routes; taking you to the coast and it’s castles, north to Holy Island or inland and the Cheviot Hills. The area of Guyzance is unspoilt, with a wealth of wildlife and fauna. Sit in one of the peaceful corners of the garden listening to fish leaping in the river, watch Buzzards flying overhead and gaze at the dark starry sky at night…then curl up in front of the log burner in the resident’s snug with a book or a DVD.

About the area
If it’s history you’re after, there’s heaps of it in Northumberland. On Hadrian’s Wall you can imagine scarlet-cloaked Roman legionaries keeping watch for painted Pictish warriors while cursing the English weather and dreaming of home. Desolate battlefield sites and hulking fortresses such as Alnwick, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Warkworth are reminders that this, until not so very long ago, was a contested border region. The ruins of Lindisfarne bear witness to the region’s early Christian history.
Northumberland also has some of Britain’s best beaches. On summer days, and even in winter, you’ll see surfers and other brave souls making the most of the coast. Inland, there are some great walks and bike rides in the dales of the Cheviot Hills and the Simonsides – just hilly enough to be interesting, without being brutally steep. There's dramatic scenery in the High Pennines, where waterfalls plunge into deep valleys, and there are swathes of heather-scented moorland. Northumberland National Park covers over 400 square miles of moorland and valleys with clear streams and pretty, stone-built villages. It’s just the place for wildlife watching too. You’ll find flocks of puffins, guillemots and other seabirds around the Farne Islands, and seals and dolphins offshore.
