Three of us stayed for two nights in the lovely, two-bedroomed "Private Suite" which consists of a double bedroom and twin bedroom on the first floor of the millhouse (there is also a self-contained "Studio" double bedroom available on the ground floor which can be kept totally separate with its own front door). We had amazing views over the river from both our bedrooms and from the kitchen area, where you can relax in the evening and have a self-serve breakfast in the morning. Susan, the owner, who is friendly and very knowledgeable about the area, welcomed us and showed us around, explaining how things worked and the breakfast options. We chose to have the self-serve option (although a cooked breakfast was available) and this consisted of fresh orange juice, cereals, fruit bread, bread (toaster available), croissants, jams, honey and a selection teas and coffees. There was also a choice of cold meats and sliced cheeses or smoked salmon and cream cheese. The fridge and bread-bin were stocked up for us the evening before, ready for us to help ourselves in the morning at whatever time suited us. The rooms were comfortable, warm, clean and well equiped. The bathroom is shared between the two rooms in the Private Suite and has a large walk-in shower with warm towels.

The gardens surrounding the mill are lovely to wander around and there are chairs and tables so you can sit and enjoy the river. Young children would need to be supervised in the garden as the river can be very fast flowing and is not fenced off.

This was a wonderful place to stay and we would highly recommend it for a relaxing break. It is very convenient for visiting Corbridge, Hexham and the surrounding villages and we would love to go back to Dilston Mill.

Three of us stayed in the 2-bedroom suite in the mill. The rooms were very comfortable and warm, the bathroom and kitchen were of very high standard and Susan, the owner, could not have done more to make our stay delightful. We opted for the cooked breakfast, which comprised local produce, homemade jam and marmalade and an enormous choice of breads, cereals, juices, coffee etc. The millstream provided a beautiful backdrop and its gentle noise at night was soothing. We would certainly stay there again and would loved to explore the area when we have more time.

Location is fabulous - the setting is very tranquil, set beside a river in lovely gardens, whilst Hexham is only a short drive away. I stayed in the studio which was very spacious and comfortable, with the convenience/independence of it's own front door. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would return again.

We stayed 3 nights in the studio room. The room was large, light and airy, the bed was comfortable.There was a fab en-suite walk-in shower plus a bath. Susan was very pleasant and could not do enough for you.
We particularly liked the independence of having our own front door, and enjoying our breakfast when we were ready for it. There was plenty of choice, and the smoked salmon was excellent.
It is an easy walk, or in our case cycle, into town for supper. Susan recommended the black bull and we ate there every night it was so good.
I would definitely recommend it. The gardens are beautiful.

The Dilston Mill B&B is one of a kind. It is located in a beautiful garden setting, with the Devils Water River flowing by. The Studio, where we stayed for two nights, was reclaimed from the old mill building and designed as a B&B by Susan, the owner. It is extremely well done. The only small disappointment, as noted by others, is the lack of a direct walk-out to the riverside garden. We had never stayed at a "self-service" B&B and were pleasantly surprised. Having selected our breakfast options the night before and having them available in our own mini-kitchen, made for very relaxing mornings - much like a weekend at home. Susan is a wonderful host and supplied us with books and local travel information and places to eat in the nearby town of Corbridge. This place is terrific. I cannot recommend it too highly.

Set in a gorgeous position with lovely rolling gardens, skirted by Devils Water, a tributary of the river Tyne; Dilston Mill is a superb place to use as a base when exploring Northumberland.
We stayed at this lovely B&B for two nights. Our room was spotlessly clean, light and airy, with spacious en-suite bathroom.
The breakfasts were perfect for us. A varied selection of fruits, cereals and delicious smoked salmon. So good, we had the same thing the following morning.
We were so impressed with the warmth of welcome and attention to detail from Susan, we will certainly visit again.
