My daughter and her husband got married on 5th February, what a fantastic weekend we had. We all arrived on Friday evening and from the off everything was first class, the setting, bar area, and our meal that night was very good. Our room was amazing (I know we had a bigger room than most) the wedding itself was very well organised by the very friendly staff, the meal was again first class, the evening dancing was enjoyed by all.So Ellingham Hall, well done, I hope we can back some time.

The wedding venue was nice and I think my family enjoyed it but I have to say the accommodation for guests is poor, I would go as far as to say it was a rip off. The bridal suite looked lovely however. My issue was with the guest bedrooms and facilities. Three rooms sharing a bathroom is not acceptable if you are charging £280 for 2 nights. No one was warned about this and for some of us with a medical issue this wasn't good. This was honestly one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in and had I not been there for a wedding and not wanted to upset my family I would have have asked for a refund and left. Our bedroom door would not close it kept popping open. Paintwork was dark and shabby but was also in need of attention. The room was so dark and gloomy we could hardly see. Curtain rails hanging off and hard to open and close the windows. I have stayed in cheap budget hotels on business that are far superior to this. Not what I was expecting. Maybe they don't expect people would dare to complain for fear of upsetting their families. Breakfast on day of wedding was one sausage sandwich take it or leave it that was all you were getting and there was no choice. It tasted horrible. I asked for something else but was told they could not offer me anything and made me feel it was my fault - I should have asked for a vegetarian breakfast. We were very hungry indeed as the food was not served until late afternoon. The next morning when we were leaving there was a full breakfast served and it was excellent, lots of choice. It would have been better if we could have had that in the morning of the wedding which was a long tiring day for some of us oldies, rather than as we were leaving. Our keys were just dumped on a table when we arrived. There is no signage to tell you where to pick up keys and no signs for reception as there isn't one. It was disorganised. The facilities downstairs were good although the bar wasn't well stocked- no Rose Zindafel just prosecco or gin really take it or leave it. I think the couple getting married really enjoyed their wedding and that is the main thing but personally I really hated the room we were given and felt ripped off by the hotel.

This review is for The Milking Parlour, one of seven cottages on the estate. The Hall itself is a grand, if slightly faded pile that is hired out for weddings, etc. We attended a party here some years ago & they did a fine job for us. The grounds are extensive & there is a rustic treehouse for children. The Milking Parlour is a detached three bedder set across two floors. Solidly constructed with a private fenced garden area & parking space for 2 or 3 cars directly outside. The cottage was pleasantly done out & very well equipped, we wanted for nothing. One of the bedrooms was huge with its own bathroom but the other two were very small & shared the family bathroom & separate shower. Everything worked & we had a terrific stay. Estate staff were helpful & friendly. Hot tubs can be hired & the accommodation is dog friendly. It’s a rural setting & you need a car to explore. The village pub, The Pack Horse, is walkable & definitely worth a visit.

Stayed in the Chapel Cottage. very spacious 3 bedroom cottage, large kitchen and first floor lounge. Within 15 mins of fabulous coastline and 20 minutes of the Cheviot Hills. One or two slight snags dealt with promptly by on site maintenance staff. Covid precautions thorough and evident throughout (you'll need to take your own board games and dvds).

We booked a week stay in The Apple Store during COVID as we had decided a Staycation was the way forwards. Because of COVID there were no weddings in the main hall and it was very quiet. The cottage was great and came with all the essentials like bin bags and tin foil already fully stocked. It was really comfortable and much less compact than I’d expected from the photos. The shower was a little on the small side for my six foot husband but the bath was delightfully large and deep. The location is perfect with all the delights of Northumberland just a short drive away.

As our abroad holiday was cancelled due to Covid we decided a UK holiday was needed! We discovered these wonderful cottages and what a joy they are! They had everything we could possibly need from a lovely welcome pack upon arrival to the cosiest of bedding! The space available was great and much needed after lockdown, my daughter loved that she had her own sofa in her bedroom and en-suite to top it off! Daily visits from the peacock were a pleasure, he spent a lot of time snoozing at our back door or showing off his beauty! think he may be a bit fatter now though. Only down sides were beyond the control of the Ellingham hall estate, and these were that there is no local shop and nearest was a drive a way. Also due to Covid guidelines the cottage had been stripped of personal touches such as books, games, leaflets etc however could have asked office if wanted to borrow monopoly. Thank you Wendy and Ellingham estate we will be back one day!

We visited for a wedding the downstairs was beautifully decorated for Christmas and a lovely roaring fire. Check in was easy and staff were pleasant . When we got to our room however we were initially pleased but on closer inspection corners were cut . The slats on the bed were either missing or bent, the mattress was flimsy with a topper on it ,the carpet was dirty in places. A tea tray was provided but although it was adequate for our stay it was placed on a windowsill and plugged into an extension lead ,also the kettle leaked. The bathroom looked stunning on first inspection, however there was no power in the shower and the water only got lukewarm. The sealant around the toilet was coming away and the tap on the sink was loose . Th3 rooms are very close together and so very noisy . Breakfast was ok but could have been hotter. The hotel and grounds are very picturesque, and make a lovely setting if only the upstairs matched the downstairs.

I was looking forward to staying here as a wedding guest. I had visited the Hall a couple of times before and loved it's sumptuous old fashioned elegance. On arriving I was disappointed that the Red Room had been replaced by a dull navy blue interior. The additional furnishings and decorations were gaudy and cheap. A matter of taste I know but the old room glowed and this one just left me feeling cold. The bedrooms we had were small but clean and warm, very warm. Again the decor and ornaments were quite cheap and not in keeping with a building of this age and class. The tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms were a health and safety nightmare especially with small children. Kettles were placed on windowsills with extension cables stretching down to the socket. I fully appreciate that this is an old building and sockets might not be right where you want them but it was simply dangerous. The marriage room was well presented and a lovely setting for the couple. The three course meal afterwards was first class and a credit to the chef and his team doing so many covers simultaneously. However the dining room was very crowded and everybody had to move to let the bride move out from the top table. In the evening more guests arrived but some tables had been removed and there simply were not enough seats for everyone even spreading in to the other areas. As stated by others the drinks were quite expensive and choice was limited. We all slept well. We turned the radiators off as the old windows wouldn't open and it was too warm but the bed was comfy and the bathrooms excellent. After the fabulous wedding meal we were really looking forward to breakfast but it was extremely disappointing. It certainly was not the quality or choice you would expect of this standard of accommodation I have had better in a Premier Inn . A poor selection of cereal was available ,no breakfast fruits and the cooked breakfast was poor quality and cold despite the fact that we were one of the first groups in the dining room. The two staff seemed overwhelmed. The bread and orange juice ran out immediately and we had to wait for refills. Watching cheap juice cartons being squeezed in to jugs ! The tea ran out and was replaced by almost hot water. I think they were saving on tea bags. As already stated this was a weekend of highs and lows. I think Ellingham Hall is a beautiful venue but it is expensive and does need improvement in some areas to maintain its status and health and safety.

Stayed here recently for a friends wedding, lovely building, peaceful surroundings, good food, friendly staff and Management, even Edward the peacock made an appearance even if he was a little noisy at times. We stayed in the Victorian suite which has its own en suite, some of the other rooms have to share bathroom facilities, the room itself was lovely and well laid out, the bed was simply enormous unfortunately it was very soft and my wife and I prefer a firm mattress you seemed to get on the bed then slowly sink into it. A nice touch from the Manageress on arrival as we were early she showed us to the kitchen and allowed us to help ourselves to tea and coffee, even though there was an ample supply in our room. The drinks were a little on the pricey side for soft drinks 1.50 for a half glass of Pepsi. which was out of a syrup machine, I work in the soft drinks industry and that is a huge mark up, Estrella was £5 a pint fair enough, Premium Vodka was only 50p more than the usual standard Vodka which was good. The meal for the actual wedding very good, home made tomato soup very good, main course of chicken and vegetables very good followed by cheesecake with raspberry coulie, exceptional. breakfast was also very good the usual plus a side of haggis went down a treat. All in all a great place for a wedding or even just a quiet get away from it all, I would have given it 5 stars but for the price of the soft drinks and the soft bed but still very good.

We stayed in a beautiful cottage that was warm, clean and so well equipped. It instantly felt like we were on holiday. We relaxed with friends, shared food together, visited beautiful beaches, played in the tree house with the kids and enjoyed being away from it all. We were so pleased to see the peacock each morning too. We were all reluctant to leave, especially our little boy who cried. We've promised him we'll return... Thank you for a wonderfully restorative stay at your magical place.
