North Lodge Milne Graden Estate, Coldstream

Book Now >
Complimentary breakfast welcome pack with all bookings.

North Lodge is a charming gate lodge on the edge of the superb Milne Graden Estate. The cosy lodge has superb views across the Estate's parkland to the Cheviot Hills beyond. Unlike some gate lodges, the accommodation is deceptively spacious. There is a good sized double bedroom on the ground floor or an equally large first floor twin bedroom. (Please note that the house is only available for a maximum of two guests). North Lodge is about a five minute walk to the River Tweed, from which there is a super network of riverside walks.

A short drive or bracing walk from the cottage takes you to the picturesque village of Norham, a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award. Famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins, the village also has two pubs, a shop, baker and butcher selling an impressive selection of local meats, pies, cheeses, chutneys and even fishing flies. More extensive local amenities can be found in the historic town of Coldstream, 3 miles from Park End. The charming, ancient towns of Duns and Kelso are also nearby and Edinburgh is an easy day trip either about an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick upon Tweed.

Food fans will be delighted that North Lodge is close to two of the area's best restaurants; the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn, both renowned for sourcing the best local produce.

With fishing on one of the world's greatest salmon so close, North Lodge is an ideal base for fishing fanatics. The estate's own beat which is available to guests at additional cost (subject to availability) extends to about 1.4 miles of single bank fishing. Milne Graden is primarily a salmon beat but has good runs of grilse and sea trout through the summer months. North Lodge is within easy driving distance of other prime beats including Tillmouth, Lennel, Ladykirk and The Lees. A trout rod, reel and line are available on request.

North Lodge is also ideally situated for exploring Northumberland's stunning Heritage coastline, 25 miles of secluded rocky coves and protected golden sands that remain almost deserted even in the summer months. Some of our favourite spots include the stunning beach at Bamburgh, miles of pristine sand, protected by sand dunes and overlooked by the impressive Bamburgh Castle. The beach is very popular for walking, riding and surfing. The magnificent views from the cliff top walks at St Abb's Head are also well worth a visit. This National Nature Reserve is home to thousands of birds including guillemots, kittiwakes, shags and puffins.

On the way home, pop in for a pint of local ale at The Black Bull at Etal, Northumberland's only thatched pub, or let us arrange for dinner to be delivered to you, light the fire, pour yourself a wee dram and.... relax!

Accommodation - Please note that the maximum occupancy is strictly two guests.

North Lodge has two bedrooms, a ground floor double bedroom and a first floor twin bedroom. Please be aware that the first floor bedroom is not usually used because of the steep, narrow stairs to access it. The house is therefore designed to accommodate only two guests in the ground floor double room. The twin bedroom can be made up on request with prior notice however to comply with insurance regulations the maximum occupancy is two guests.

Bedroom 1 (ground floor) with 4'6" bed, large, built-in wardrobe, dressing table and hairdryer. All bed linen is the highest quality 100% Egyptian cotton.

Bathroom with bath (with shower over), basin and WC. Luxurious towels are provided for all guests. Detachable grab rails are available on request.

North Lodge has a garden area on three sides of the cottage. NB The garden is not fully enclosed. The rear garden area has a table and chairs and superb views across parkland to the Cheviot Hills beyond. There is off-road parking to the side of the cottage. There is an unfurnished conservatory at the rear of the cottage and during the cooler months, the garden table and chairs are left in the conservatory for guest's use.

Welcome pack

A complimentary welcome pack awaits guests on arrival and includes homemade lemon drizzle cake, homemade granola, organic milk, dry cured bacon, free range eggs, vine tomatoes, fresh bread, Tetley tea and Nescafé coffee presented in your own jute shopping bag.

Guest feedback

Parkinson, July 14 -"We had an absolutely wonderful stay – thank you! I think we’ll be back again, we enjoyed it so much. We loved sitting out on the decking. It was a perfect stay!"

Fitzgerald, July 14 -"We did very much enjoy our stay at North Lodge. It was a lovely cottage, very nicely furnished, the bed linen and curtains/cushions were all lovely too and of a high standard. It all felt luxurious. We were very grateful for WiFi and used this a lot, also great to have Sky TV. We liked the walk around the estate and it was good to have the map showing this, also useful having the other tourist information you left for us. North Lodge was extremely comfortable and we would happily go there again or recommend to others."

Draper, June 14 -"We really enjoyed our week at North Lodge, it's very nicely appointed and in a wonderful location. Crabtree and Crabtree booking service runs very efficiently and we will certainly look to using you again."

Wallace, June 14 -"Our stay at North Lodge was wonderful! The service offered during our booking was excellent especially as we booked late and I had lots of questions which were all answered patiently and professionally... North Lodge is in a very quiet and private location. The views are spectacular and the estate grounds are a joy to explore... We thoroughly enjoyed watching the various feathered visitors to the garden and could identify most but not all. There is an abundance of wild life and we spent hours just watching and waiting to see who would come along next... The decking area is a great asset: we were lucky to have been able to have breakfast and dinner outside most days. Overall, we were delighted, not only with North Lodge, but with our choice of Crabtree & Crabtree."

Helen & Chris, April 14 -"Everything was great, cosy house with everything we needed already here. Lemon drizzle cake and granola some of the best we've tasted. Very clean and welcoming house, we will visit again and would certainly recommend!"

McConnell, April 14 -"Had a lovely stay here at North Lodge. Peaceful location, gorgeous views and a bed so comfy it was a struggle to get out! Enjoyed exploring the Estate and appreciated the welcome hamper."
