We rented Brunton House and the adjoining three cottages for a four night stay for a large group of friends. Everything was absolutely perfect and exceeded our expectations. The house and cottages are absolutely beautiful - well furnished, spotlessly clean, light and airy and extremely comfortable. Everything you need - as well as lots of things you didn't know you needed - is provided including a very generous welcome hamper, nice toiletries, hair dryers in every bedroom, and a huge range of pots, pans, crockery etc . There's also a huge amount of information provided about places of interest in the area. The bedrooms and bathrooms are really great and the main house has 2 kitchens (1 with an Aga) and a lovely large dining room. We were lucky to stay when the weather was warm and sunny and it was wonderful to have breakfast or a drink in the lovely gardens. The cottages also come up to the same high standard. Chris, the Estate Manager, and Mark & Lucia, the owners, were extremely helpful and friendly and made sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Brunton House is in a beautiful location near some of the best beaches in the country, as well as nice towns such as Alnwick, Bamburgh Castle, Lindisfarne and lots of other places to visit as well as many excellent walks. It is a bit isolated so it's best to have a car although there's a friendly local taxi service. We had a wonderful stay at Brunton and will definitely return. I'd also like to say how useful their website is, providing all the information you need.
Fabulous stay at Brunton house, four generations together and this was a wonderful venue for large groups. Beautifully decorated with antiques yet has a very relaxed comfortable feel. Very well equipped with everything you could need. Set in a great location, peaceful and surrounded by countryside. Ideal for exploring Northumberland. Chris the manager was wonderful and very helpful. This is the 4th time we have stayed at Brunton House and look forward to our next visit.
The house & cottages are set in spectacular grounds. They are beautifully appointed & immaculate. There was a generous welcome pack & a bunch of flowers in each cottage. The area offers so much & is perfect for walkers. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
Such a lovely peaceful spot in the northumberland countryside - every comfort provided with homeliness, elegance, and thoughtful attention to detail. Plenty of interesting places to visit nearby, castles, beaches, or perfect for just relaxing, pottering, and playing or walking in the gardens and grounds. We were all happy here and very well looked after. A great joint 70th Birthdays' celebration!
Quiet restful location in a farm with river running outside window.
Nearest sea is at Embleton Bay a few minutes by car. Lovely walks to ruined castle.
Alnick Alnmouth Seahouses and Bambrough all within easy reach.
We had had a wonderful time at Brunton Burn. The accommodation was perfect. A welcome pack with local produce was an unexpected surprise. On opening the front door we were greeted by the most beautiful view of a 'burn'. The beaches at Bamburgh and Newton by the sea were just amazing. We were lucky to have sunny days but the walks on the beaches were incredible. We even managed a crab stottie and prosecco outdoors on my birthday at The Ship Inn (Newton by the Sea) after our long walk on the beach. A log burner was always awaiting our return with unlimited supply of logs. A visit to Barters books in Alnwick for breakfast (which was top quality) is a must. We used our National Trust membership at Cragside and Wallington House. A train ride to Edinburgh enabled us to meet up with our friends. We want to keep it a secret so it is always available for us but it is too gorgeous not to share.
We first stayed in Mill Race in October 2012 when I proposed to my now wife, Elly, on nearby Bamburgh beach. It was our first trip back since, and this time we were accompanied by our daughter Freya, just four months old. We had a wonderful week enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the cottage, as well as wonderful walks along the Northumbrian coastline. The owners and manager couldn’t have been more helpful or welcoming and the cottage was as perfect as we remembered it. We will definitely be back!
