Romantic countryside retreat with unique décor located on a peaceful estate abundant in wildlife.

Romantic countryside retreat with unique décor located on a peaceful estate abundant in wildlife.

These tasteful, character holiday cottages are set within the grounds of Lemmington Hall amongst the unspoilt Northumbrian countryside. Each cottage has its own individual charm with cosy and elegant interiors carefully designed by the owner. Forge Cottage (ref MVN) is the largest, a beautiful detached cottage with uninterrupted views of the Cheviot Hills, and was formerly the stone-built home of the blacksmith of this charming country estate. The quaint and charming pair of Grade II listed, single-storey, adjoining cottages, Thimble (ref MVV) and Button (ref MVU), designed specifically for couples to offer a romantic country life experience, retaining charm and quirkiness. Peacocks wander nearby, with red squirrels and deer in the woods. The properties are ideally located to explore the abundance of visitor attractions, with Alnwick (the ducal town), only 4 miles away where a visit to the castle and enchanting water gardens is a must, not to mention the Treehouse restaurant. The Heritage Coast, with miles of golden sandy beaches, peppered with friendly villages and historic castles, is only a 20-minute drive. Shop 4 miles, pub 3 miles.

Open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove and rugs on wooden floor, and kitchen area with wooden floor. Double bedroom with 5ft bed, TV and en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    Nice environment and quiet: gineafowl and peacocks wandering the lawn. Anwick nearby, lots to do. Cottage was very small and not ideal: can’t open windows and very low sofa. Nowhere to store food in kitchen except small fridge. Several minor inconveniences which niggled. V soft and comfy bed! A good bath & shower. Lovely private garden with chairs, table etc. Suggest for short visit “love nest” with limited catering it would be super.

    Dear little cottage, in a quiet location, convenient for Alnwick and NT Cragside. Only downside was not being able to open the windows.

    The cottage is pretty and in a delightful location, with peacocks at the door. However, although we knew that it would be small, it proved almost unworkable, for the following reasons: 1. Very little storage space in the bedroom and it was not possible to 'live out of a case' as there was nowhere to place them safely; 2. No food storage space in the kitchen at all. We solved this by putting some of the kitchen equipment on top of high cupboards; 3. Numerous cushions on the bed and sofa which were not needed and it was hard to find places to put them; 4. The softest bed I have ever encountered, causing back problems; 5. The roof leaked when it rained; 6. Kitchen table was broken (although this was fixed after we complained) 7. Shower rail was very fragile and we worried about breaking it; 8. Very poor lighting in living area - the cottage was dark even in midsummer and there was nowhere with adequate light for reading; 9. No openable windows, so cottage became stuffy and would have been unbearable in hot weather. We couldn't leave the front door open because of an inquisitive peacock.

    Lovely cottage. Plenty of things to do near by. We had a great week at Alnwick. Would recommend this cottage.

    First of all I need to qualify a couple of my answers above. The main reason we would not stay at Button Cottage again is that we have spent several holidays in Northumberland over the years and love it. However it is a 5 hour journey from home and there are other parts of the country to explore. Secondly, I gave a 10 for amenities by which I mean within a 5 mile radius. No amenities in the immediate vicinity of the cottage. To say that Button Cottage is 'bijou' is an understatement! Nowhere to put clothes, bags or even food in the kitchen. I appreciate there was no-where to put a wardrobe or drawers in the bedroom but living out of a suitcase and falling over ones bags is not ideal. Also in the kitchen there were cupboards for china, glasses etc but none for storage of dry goods. On the positive side, the location was lovely - quiet and peaceful. Loved the peacocks and guinea fowl in the garden! The bed was soooo comfortable and a brilliant shower. We did enjoy our week and managed to visit all the sites we had hoped to see!
