“Fantastic property!”
Reviewed 5 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Brunton cottage and Mill Race are really well appointed and first class properties. Peaceful and calm overlooking a lovely stream with lots of wildlife. Lots of walks from the cottage and plenty of places nearby worth a visit. Highly recommended

“Perfect Place, Perfect Location - Quality Oozes!”
Reviewed 18 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Brunton House (sleeps 16+) and the nearby Brunton Burn (sleeps 2) are fantastic in an absolutely beautiful location with superb views and great but unobtrusive service from Chris Roberts who manages the place. We went there with family and friends to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary and everything was perfect, even the weather (in early May!). Brunton House is roomy with everything finished to an extremely high standard and spotlessly clean. We cooked most meals ourselves but brought a chef in for our anniversary dinner - Fiona Burn, who was wonderful and adapted her menu to meet some of our idiosyncratic tastes.

There's lots to do in the area and we had a group walk along the coast, visited the kipper smokery at Caster and took a boat trip to the Farne Isles - well worth a visit. But best of all was spending time in Brunton House's gardens, playing games on the lawns and relaxing with a drink or two as the sun went down and using the games room for pool and table football late into the night.

This is the ideal place for large parties or, in their smaller cottage,s for couples. We had a wonderful time and "we'll be back"!

“Brunton Burn - Perfect Cottage for two”
Reviewed 16 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

person found this review helpful

It has all been said. Owners Lucia and Mark have thought of everything. One more example to add to all the others mentioned by previous delighted guests - they provide a parking disc to use in the local towns.

Another thing: the absolute privacy, peace and quiet, apart from the water burbling down the old mill race, a truly hypnotic sight and sound as you stare out of the patio doors, and so relaxing. Yet many of the major sights are within a few miles: Alnwick, Bamburgh, Howick Hall, and the beaches, to name a few. And, Oh! those beaches, stretching to the far horizon and almost empty despite the fabulous sunny weather we have enjoyed. Just perfect.

“Brunton Burn offers perfect accommodation in a great setting”
Reviewed 5 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We stayed in Brunton House last October with friends and enjoyed it so much we decided to return on our own, staying this time in Brunton Burn cottage. The cottage is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The bed is large and comfortable and the walk-in shower is superb. The view from the cottage and terrace over the burn is stunning.

A generous welcome basket completes the experience of staying in this wonderful cottage.

“Rural, comfortable and spacious cottage”
Reviewed 29 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Situated off a quiet road, Brunton Burn is a spacious, comfortable and very well equipped cottage for two people. The living room/kitchen is charmingly furnished and the floor to ceiling window/patio door overlooks the tumbling burn. The bedroom has a 6 feet wide bed which is extremely comfortable and the bathroom has a bath and large walk-in shower. The whole property is immaculate.
Brunton Burn and its sister properties are all well placed for exploring the local attractions, including Alnwick, and you can take country walks from the cottage itself.
We could not fault this as a holiday home. Full marks to the owners for the attention to detail - nothing had been overlooked.

Dear Rod

I should employ you to write my marketing material - I think you covered nearly everything. Thank you very much - and please do come back again when you can and try Mill Race, or Stable Cottage or even Brunton House!

Best wishes

“Wonderful stay in a beautiful house”
Reviewed 28 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

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.
