“A Lovely Cosy Cottage in a Peaceful Setting”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in October 2018

A lovely cosy cottage in the country but not for from the A1 and ideal for exploring the beautiful Northumberland coastline. It was stylishly decortated, very clean, and it had a lovely log burner which we made full use of in the evenings. The owners, Elaine & Jeremy, were very friendly, helpful, and most welcoming. We had a wonderful week with good weather & were very lucky considering it was October. It was an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Northumberland coastline, with great pubs serving good food only a short drive away. We would definitely recommend this lovely cottage & hope to return there again soon.

“Great place to stay even when weather was so poor”
Reviewed November 12, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Lovely, homely cottage, especially during the chill evenings of November, the wooding-burning stove was great and cheerful. Very quiet and peaceful location, will definitely return again in late Spring when hopefully the weather will be kinder.

“Rural seclusion shame about the weather”
Reviewed June 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Rock Mill Cottage is part of a farm stead, tucked away down a long lane, a real gem in the middle of no-where. If you like waking up to the sound of bird song not traffic noise then this place is for you. Owners Jeremy and Elaine very helpful when queries arose and he even made a fire for us on the first night as the storage heaters had been switched off and the Northumberland June evening was chilly! Shame about the weather but an ideal base for touring round the area with castles / towns / beaches / excellent pubs all within easy striking distance. Lovely scenery when we could see it when the mist parted. Recommended.

Spent 5 nights staying in your Rock Mill Cottage over February Half Term. The cottage was a great base to explore Northumberland. Nice walks from the cottage - close to Embleton Bay and the fantastic Ship Inn and Pilgrim's Arms pubs. The accommodation was perfect for our family (2 adults / 2 children) stylishly decorated, really clean, warm and comfortable - a great place to relax and unwind. Jeremy and Elaine did a great job of making us feel welcome.

“Perfect cottage to explore Northumberland coast”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Had a wonderful week in this lovely cottage. So peaceful waking up to nothing but birdsong! The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped . The wood burning stove made for cosy evenings after exploring the beautiful Northumberland coastline. Plenty of lovely walks on this stunning coastline, and there are plenty of places to visit. Spoiled for choice on where to eat. We were joined for a couple of nights by our sons, both in their 20's who said the bunk beds were comfy!
The owner Jeremy welcomed us he was really friendly and very helpful - and no need for a good food guide as his recommendations were spot on. We look forward to returning!

“Delightful, peaceful and comfortable”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Very clean, comfortable and charming character cottage in a brilliant location for exploring the Northumberland coast. The owner was very friendly and gave us loads of tips about local places to eat and drink (accurate tips, too!). The quiet location meant we slept extremely well and had total privacy too. Great place and we have already recommended it to family.

This was an excellent choice by my wife. We travelled with an 18 month old baby and wanted to have all the comforts of home to make our stay relaxing. The cottage provided everything as advertised with no surprises. Take a look at the pictures. It really is that pretty and well appointed. As for location, it was excellent. Out in the country yet only a couple of miles from the A1 for easy access to Alnick and the surrounding area.
The hosts Jeremy and Elaine were equally pleasing. Very friendly and certainly gave the impression they were there to help with any requests. We never made any requests because we were very satisfied with things as we found them. Well done!
Would not hesitate to recommend this cottage.
If your needs are for a bigger cottage there is another larger one on site also. Well worth a phone call to check it out.
