Crookhouse Mill, Crookhouse Wooler

Book Now >
Gloriously rural, Crookhouse Mill is a fantastic new barn conversion set in a spectacular spot with breathtaking views over the hills and valleys of the Northumberland National Park. It will be a favourite with families and friends looking for a place to unwind and enjoy some together time in a tranquil country setting.

For those with a love of entertaining, the large open plan kitchen and snug with its hand-crafted Chalon style cabinetry offers a wonderful space to cook, eat, socialise and relax, with large French doors leading out to the garden where you can enjoy that first cup of coffee or last glass of wine.

With subtle decor and classic furnishings in wool and tweed, the lofty open plan sitting room with original oak beams has a warm, understated elegance with a large fireplace which takes centre stage. The dining space features a large oak refectory table which seats eight comfortably but can accommodate up to twelve guests for relaxed evenings in.

A ground floor double bedroom offers flexibility with a zip and link bed and en-suite facilities, while the calming palette of natural tones continues up to the first floor galleried landing which leads to three well appointed en-suite double bedrooms.

Set at the end of a private road high in the hills of the Lanton Estate, this is an area of big sky views, stunning scenery and spectacular sunsets which will only leave you looking forward to your next visit!

For larger parties looking to holiday together, Crookhouse Mill can be booked alongside Bowmont Cottage (sleeps 4+1) and College Cottage (sleeps 6+1) which sit within the same courtyard.

Local amenities

Despite Lanton’s rural location there are good local amenities nearby. The estate is seven miles from the pretty town of Wooler which offers a good range of independent shops including two excellent butchers, a very good delicatessen, several pubs and cafes and the highly rated Milan Restaurant.

Cornhill on Tweed is eight miles from the estate and offers an excellent village shop selling pies and delicious local goodies and the Collingwood Arms which has a super bar and restaurant specialising in dishes prepared using the wealth of local produce on offer. More extensive shopping including a good range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants are available at Kelso 14 miles away.

Activities & attractions

Fabulous walks from the doorstep range from leisurely rambles along the Bowmont Water and surrounding farmland to 600 miles of designated hill and moorland routes in the Cheviot Hills. The St Cuthbert’s Way and the Pennine Way are also nearby.

Cyclists are equally well provided for with miles of marked routes and quiet country lanes to explore offering everything from meandering river valley saunters to wild open moorland blasts. The Cheviots offer some of the best mountain biking in the country and the Pennine Cycleway and the Reivers Cycle Route both run through the National Park.

Dogs and horses are welcome at Crookhouse and stabling is available. The local bridle paths provide access to some of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of Northumberland. The stables at Kimmerston just down the road also offer riding in the Cheviot Hills as well as rides on the spectacular sandy beaches on nearby Holy Island.

There is low key fishing on the River Glen which runs through the estate. For more serious fishing, the cottage is only a fifteen drive from the River Till one of the area's best kept secrets with an impressive sea trout run each spring. The lower and bottom beats of the legendary River Tweed are also within easy driving distance. Walked up and driven shooting is also available on the Lanton Estate and on neighbouring estates.

Golf fans are no less well provided for with golf courses nearby including links courses at Bamburgh and Goswick, parkland courses at Wooler and Belford and the sublime Roxburghe Championship Golf Course just outside Kelso.

Some of the cleanest and emptiest beaches in England can be found on Northumberland's spectacular Heritage Coastline nearby. One of our favourite spots is Bamburgh Beach, with miles of pristine sand nestled behind huge sand dunes. At low tide take a trip across the causeway to the mystical Holy Island of Lindisfarne or take a boat to the Farne Islands to see the resident colonies of Grey Seals and an impressive array of birdlife including Puffins.

The stunning coastline provides the perfect opportunity to try your hand at kite surfing, sailing or coasteering. For something a little different, gliding is available at nearby Millfield. Clay pigeon shooting and archery are also available locally and beginners are very welcome.

Also nearby is the Ford and Etal estate where one can have a wander around the ruins of Etal Castle or enjoy a pint at Northumberland’s only thatched pub before taking the delightful miniature steam railway which runs to Heatherslaw to explore the corn mill and buy some delicious Heatherslaw biscuits.

The region’s rich history is reflected in the magnificent chain of castles that punctuate the landscape. Those nearby the cottage include dramatic Bamburgh, perched high on its rocky outcrop, the vast, romantic ruins of Dunstanburgh, the palatial splendour of Floors, Chillingham, reputedly one of the most haunted buildings in England and home to the world’s only herd of wild cattle, and foreboding Alnwick, made famous as the location for Hogwart’s School in the Harry Potter films.

Further afield, the magnificent city of Edinburgh is only about an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from nearby Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Garden and grounds
Crookhouse Mill is surrounded by a gravelled courtyard extending into a lawned area to the front of the property which runs to open fields beyond.

Access – Important!
The property is accessed via a private estate road which becomes a predominantly hard-covered track. The track involves a number of cattle grids, is steep in places and is unsuitable for very low slung cars. During icy and snowy conditions 4WD vehicles are essential. Please contact us if you have any concerns.

Guest privacy
The property is part of a small hamlet of properties at Crookhouse which includes Bowmont Cottage and College Cottage (see images). Crookhouse Mill sits to the rear of Bowmont and College and has been developed to ensure guest privacy as far as possible. If you have any concerns, please call us to discuss. There are open fields to the front and rear of the development.

"I stayed at Crookhouse Mill earlier this year just for a weekend with a group of friends but was so impressed I just had to go back this time as a get away with my husband and dog. We had an exceptional week of chilled out relaxation, in a beautiful house with amazing surroundings. We were inundated with questions about where we were and who we booked through from friends and family from the photos we put on Facebook so we have passed details of Crookhouse and your superb website onto anyone and everyone who asked as the whole period was excellently managed from start to finish. We are already booked again, through yourselves for a friends weekend in January which I am already looking forward to. Crabtree & Crabtree is the first website I will now look at when it comes to booking a place away as the quality of the properties is outstanding, your website is amazing and the customer service received is exceptional." - Clemson

"Thank you for all your help with booking Crookhouse Mill and being so accommodating with our requests. We had a wonderful week and the Mill was extremely comfortable. The housekeeper was also very helpful with any questions." - Thompson

"We recently stayed in a party of eight at Crookhouse Mill. I don't believe any of us put an entry in the Visitors Book and so I am writing just to say how much we enjoyed staying there. The mill has been beautifully converted to a luxurious house; the attention to detail superb, the bathrooms and kitchen were stunning and the whole house has been beautifully furnished throughout. A truly 5*+ accommodation." - Donegan

"My husband and two children have asthma so for 20+ years we have been seeking out self catering high quality properties in the UK. However they are rarely as clean and dust free as Crookhouse Mill and we usually have to embark on a clean on arrival. Therefore it was particularly lovely after the journey taking 2 hours longer than anticipated to receive the lovely welcome from the housekeeper and to find the property so immaculate. We look forward to booking with Crabtree & Crabtree again in the future and will happily recommend you to friends." - Fletcher
