Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have just had a relaxing weekend away near Corbridge and our host, Susan, couldn't have been more lovely.

Her accommodation is in a converted watermill and has lovely views of the water. It is very clean and cosy and the little breakfast room has everything you need and more.

She made us feel welcome from the outset and nothing was too much trouble.

She adds little touches like biscuits and chocolates and is always on hand to meet your needs.

A very personal B&B experience and we will definitely stay there again. Hopefully when the weather is warmer and the garden in bloom!

This B&B is not your typical stay. The venue is nestled along a beautiful stream with many spots set up for relaxing and enjoying the tranquil setting.
We booked the upstairs room which included a kitchenette and bath.
The latter is large, with a very roomy shower. Amenities included plenty of large towels, hand towels, washcloths and pump hand soap. The shower had some type of pump soap that was designed to wash hair, and body as well.

There is no television on the premises for guest viewing, but there is very strong wi-fi.

Breakfast items are chosen by the guest, and the owner stocks the kitchen nightly, primarily when one is out of the room. The kitchen, bath and bedroom were all refreshed daily.

Breakfast choices include several types of bread, juice, coffee and/or tea, granola cereal, fruit, smoked salmon, meat and cheese plate, and eggs. There is a microwave for cooking, and one can either make poached eggs or scrambled eggs in it. Plates, silverware, plasticware for cooking are all supplied, as well as a large variety of teas. Every day there was a "treat" on the table for us to enjoy in the evening, whether it be shortbread or a chocolate delight.

The house is quite close to Corbridge and to Hexam. There is a car park in front of the house. The road is a private avenue, so there is little or no car traffic. The area is very quiet.

In reference to the odor mentioned by another review, my husband kept insisting that he smelled something "off". The smell of the house reminded me of other old buildings where we had stayed and I did not find it to be offensive. As I have an extreme sensitivity to mold, I would certainly rule that out, as I had absolutely no breathing issues while staying here.

The owner only accepts cash. Be warned that Corbridge did not have a bank with which to withdraw, so we had to drive to Hexam in order to find an ATM machine with no fees. The owner lives in the house, but has her own private entrance. Her living quarters does connect to the B&B upstairs hallway via a set of glass doors, and as mentioned, she does knock prior to entering. This was not a frequent event.

This is certainly a unique place to stay if you are looking for something different than the norm. The bedding was comfortable, and the environment was quite peaceful and very quiet.

This is a very special place! Its setting is dramatic and glorious, even in chilly February, with the snowdrops peeping out in the stunning riverside garden. The B and B has two separate flats/rooms and ours had its own private entrance downstairs . The bedroom was spacious, immaculately clean and very comfortable. It was exceedingly well equipped with simple kitchenette, large bathroom with a bath and shower, large comfortable bed etc. Breakfasts are preordered the night before and rather than cooked variety, they’re a great selection of breads, cereals, cheeses, charcuterie, croissant, homemade jams and marmalade and a great range of teas and coffees. Best of all is the hostess with the mostest ! Susan is simply wonderful, fascinating to chat to, lively, interesting and interested and even in just 3 nights we began to get to know each other! She simply can’t do enough to help and her little luxury extras were much appreciated. If you want utter tranquility, free of television but with good Wi-Fi if if you need to keep in touch, pretty gardens, comfort and charm, this is just the place !!

Was expecting this to be wonderful but sadly not at all! The owner was not happy to see our dog even though we told her online about the dog but she insisted we did not. The towels were stiff and musty the bedding did not smell fresh and the cupbourds smelled foisty the dish cloth and scourer were worn and dirty and smelled awful. There was no lock on the door and the owner knocked often and barged in and insisted on putting the brealfast she brought in the fridge. I was on edge thinking she was going to knock on the door and come in all the time, it felt like there was no privacy. The basic breakfast was cheap and tasteless, the whole thing was totally overpriced and we got the impression the owner really did not want us there. The only good thing about it was the amazing gardens and the river.

We stayed in the studio apartment and it was cosy, clean and warm. Susan was friendly and helpful, always on hand if there was any issues (which there wasn't) and provided some very nice little touches such as biscuits for the dog (and us) and chocolates (for us not the dog!). The breakfast selection was excellent as long as you're not looking for a full English and everything provided was of excellent quality.

Just returned from our first visit to Dilston MIll. We booked directly with Susan the owner who welcomed us on arrival. We had booked the downstairs studio, but as the first floor, more spacious suite was also available Susan showed us both for us to choose. Due to the lovely views of the river we chose the suite., a double bedroom, bathroom and spacious dining room with microwave, sink, fridge etc. We selected our preferences for breakfast which Susan left in the fridge for us to prepare at our leisure, in addition to the fruit and selection of cereals already in the kitchen. The accommodation is warm (very cosy during the February storms) and spotlessly clean. The Mill is well positioned for walks across paths to both Hexham and Corbridge, and close to local bus routes and train services if you need a break from driving. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Dilston MIll and would certainly stay again when we return to explore more of this lovely part of Northumberland

A lovely setting for a B&B. Or maybe a self catering establishment. Breakfast was unusual, with the friendly host providing eggs, bread etc for us to cook ourselves. This felt more like self catering which would’ve been OK had the room rate reflected this.
Our host was very friendly and the rooms were very clean if not a little tired. The lane approaching the property needs some TLC.

We had a great few days in Dilston Mill. We stayed in the flat upstairs, which was cosy and spotlessly clean. Susan is a great host – she offered a wide choice for our continental breakfast (I loved that it was put in the fridge each day ready for the next morning), sorted our restaurant booking and was just generally helpful.

The setting is great – we loved the garden and the river outside, and we enjoyed the stars as the skies here are darker than we are used to at home.

This place is just lovely. Susan is a fantastic host. The decor is lovely and the breakfast fantastic. The studio so private and welcoming and spotless. The garden a little bit of paradise. You can walk to lovely restaurants in Corbridge or get an easy bus ride to Hexham in the evening. You can do fantastic walks right from the door. We spent a week with our border terrier who also fell in love with Susan and the Mill and would have stayed there permanently! Even our teenage son wants to return... We will be back.

My sister and I stayed in the private suite of the Mill for a couple of nights. We love Corbridge anyway but this was the icing on the cake. A unique and peaceful building, our suite was a lovely self-contained apartment, thoughtfully appointed with great attention to detail. A treat to come back to at the end of the day.
The grounds are extensive and beautiful, bound by a very dramatic river. From here you can follow that river on a pleasant 30 minute walk into Corbridge, an otherwise 5 minute car journey.
Our attentive host Susan was a mine of local information and ready to help if need be.
We were loath to leave and look forward to a return visit sometime in the future.
