North Lodge, Milne Graden
Enjoy the calming effect of this charismatic Victorian gate lodge on the edge of the superb Milne Graden Estate, with idyllic riverside trails on the doorstep and just ten miles from the wide sweeping sands of the exceptional Northumberland coast.
A charming gate lodge with superb views
With idyllic riverside trails on the doorstep and just ten miles from the wide sweeping sands of the exceptional Northumberland coast.
Newly refurbished throughout, the sitting room is a celebration of the flora and fauna of the area with colours inspired by the featured work of renowned painter/print maker Angie Lewin through her Saltmarsh Storm II piece and the intricate wallpaper illustrations by Mark Hearld.
Alongside this, limewashed wood and soft sage green is paired carefully with the warmth of natural wool and sisal, while an open fire will bring about some cosy contentment when those lazy days beckon.
The bedroom features a large king size bed, and the artisan feel continues with an oversized headboard in Royal Oak fabric by artist Andrew Davidson and the contemporary work of award winning print maker Emma Lawrenson.
Contrast this with the deep graphite grey of the kitchen, perfectly equipped for two, with exceptional south facing views of The Cheviots, leading directly onto a deck and south facing garden.
North Lodge is surrounded by garden on three sides and a five minute walk will take you down to the River Tweed, from which there is a super network of riverside walks.
All Milne Graden properties benefit from use of the Tails of the Tweed Dog Park in the estate’s former Victorian kitchen garden. Sitting on the route of the mapped walks which run around the estate, this bright, sunny spot is a perfect space for relaxation while your furry friend can play and run freely within the safety of this enclosed space. A range of dog agility obstacles and toys are sure to add some extra fun!
