Beautifully appointed, the Coach House is perfectly positioned for both coast and country and offers a perfect retreat to indulge family, friends or corporate guests to a stay in luxury surroundings.
Comfort, elegance and meticulous attention to detail
Formerly the old coach house for the Lesbury Estate, a great deal of thought has gone into the development of this property and the result is a perfect fusion of comfort and elegance with meticulous attention to detail.
The ground floor has immediate impact opening up into a generous open plan living space which flows seamlessly from the high spec catering kitchen with granite surfaces, walnut bar and wine fridge to a superb dining space which seats eight comfortably.
With high vaulted ceilings, the property has grand proportions yet retains warmth and intimacy with a double-sided wood burner connecting the dining area to the sitting area, all beautifully balanced with original stonework, rich oak floors and beams, vintage leather and Harris Tweed to introduce warmth and texture to this incredibly atmospheric space.
The four en-suite bedrooms are serene and streamlined featuring a neutral colour palette and high quality finishes which perfectly complements the rest of the property. Super king beds, luxurious duck down duvets, high quality White Company bed linen and underfloor heating in the bathrooms all add to the feeling of quality and well-being.

For guests looking to holiday together this property can be booked alongside Miller's Cottage, sleeping 2. The properties are a short distance from each other.
Sitting on the banks of the River Aln in the picturesque hamlet of Lesbury, there is a village shop for essential provisions, and a gentle five minute stroll from the property will take guests to the Coach Inn for good hearty food and real ales in warm, ambient surroundings.
The property is incredibly well placed, sitting just off the main A1 which runs right through the Northumberland coast. The nearby railway station at Alnmouth (0.5 miles) is on the main East Coast rail line, providing easy access from Edinburgh and the North, or from Newcastle and beyond from the South. Pick-ups can be arranged from the train station if required.
Guests will find a more extensive range of amenities in the coastal villages of Alnmouth (1.5 miles) and Warkworth (4.3 miles) which have plenty of restaurants, galleries, pubs, coffee shops and gift shops to choose from, all set amidst stunning surroundings.
Alternatively, a little further inland you will find an excellent range of amenities in nearby Alnwick (4 miles), home to the fantastic Alnwick Castle and Gardens and an eclectic mix of charming specialist shops where you can wander the cobbled streets and gift shops around the marketplace, or stop-off at one of the many quaint cafes across the area for a decadent cake and freshly roasted coffee.

"We have just returned home from a very relaxing weekend. The staff were friendly and helpful. The house is beautiful, well designed and of very high quality. There was a very generous welcome basket to greet us. Our time there was far too short and we hope to return soon. It is the first time we have booked through Crabtree & Crabtree and found the booking process efficient and easy."Ibbotson family
"We had a fantastic weekend, thank you – the cottage was wonderful, really high spec and beautifully decorated. We would definitely stay at the Coach House again, hopefully for longer than a weekend."Lucas family
"I only have good things to say about Crabtree & Crabtree and the property that we hired for the weekend. The booking process and information I received was first class and I couldn't fault the service. Coach House at Lesbury was absolutely stunning. A beautifully restored and decorated building that had plenty of space for the 4 couples staying at the property. All of the bedrooms were an excellent size with very comfortable beds. It is a luxury to be able to find a property that has 4 en-suite bedrooms, a large lounge and dining room and a beautiful kitchen. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery, glasses etc. And even though I had taken things like salt, pepper, oil, tin foil, cleaning materials, tea and coffee, it was lovely to see that these things had been left from previous visitors as some rental properties leave nothing at all. The 'welcome' pack left for us was amazing and had some very tasty goodies in it!! I wouldn't hesitate in using or recommending Crabtree & Crabtree again for holiday rentals and hope to stay at the Coach House again."Magnay family
"Just to say we enjoyed our stay at the Coach House very much... a lovely property in an excellent location. All very good, and in retrospect we all wished we had booked for longer. Hopefully we might be back!"Sadler family
"We had a wonderful time at the Coach House and already working out when we can return next year! The house and surroundings are beautiful!"Mccartney family
"We had an excellent stay at the Coach House and I would recommend it without hesitation. Crabtree & Crabtree service was outstanding and I have nothing to suggest that needs improving. Thank you for your assistance in arranging our holiday."Whitlie family
"We had a lovely stay at the Coach House, Lesbury - thank you. Everyone commented on how stunning the property was from the minute they opened the door. The living area space was wonderful for a group of 8 - so cosy and definitely had the "wow" factor. Bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely-comfy beds and cosy linen and it was commented by a few of the ladies that it was lovely to have such nice toiletries in the bathroom. Welcome hamper was very much appreciated and such a lovely touch. We felt that both the interior/exterior look of the house was presented to a very high standard. You expect to have a weekend away in a house that you could only dream of being your own....and this one certainly lived up to expectations! Thank you again-we are already planning our next Crabtree & Crabtree weekend away."Cowe family
"We enjoyed the house very much. It is very well appointed and in an excellent location. We would certainly recommend the Coach House and would return ourselves."Bryden family
"We had a lovely weekend, thank you. The Coach House is a beautiful property that has been kept to a very high standard. We will definitely be staying here again."Parker family
"Many thanks for allowing us the use of the Coach House. It was beautifully presented in every way. Lesbury as we found out was a lovely centre for us explore Northumberland. From the coast to Kelso we wandered far and wide enjoying your beautiful county."Matthews family
"We would like to say we had a brilliant holiday last week. The weather was very kind to us - we did several beach walks in Alnmouth, Bamburgh and Amble. Some of visited the Farne Islands and actually saw puffins for the first time - we have always come up too late in the year before. This is our first time with your company and if all of your cottages are of the same standard at Coach House, then we would certainly use you again. The house was beautiful and fulfilled every need we had. We have never had so many nice touches before (and we have stayed in many, many cottages). The hamper was lovely and very welcome."Hamilton family
"Just wanted to say how much we have enjoyed our stay at the Coach House. It is a beautiful property and every bit as gorgeous as it looks online."Whitby family
