Details

This unique award-winning, picturesque cottage stands on a story-book farm near Holy Island. Enjoy our home-baking before the old range or discover the luxury of scrumptious organic cotton bed linen.

 Newt Cottage is a beautiful picture-postcard cottage, with roses and honeysuckle climbing around the small-paned sash windows. Light streams into this south facing Victorian cottage, which we’ve carefully restored to preserve a lovely traditional atmosphere. Curl up before a roaring fire in the old Tweed range for afternoon tea.

There are two sunny bedrooms; 1 has a double bed and the other two singles. Deep feather duvets are topped with luxurious organic cotton bed linen to give a wonderful night’s sleep. Garden flowers brighten the rooms and we’ve used eco-friendly paint and decorating products that are gentle to both you and the environment.

The traditional cottage garden is a very special place with wide lawns and lots of flowers. A little wicket gate leads through to the organic meadow beyond the garden, where sheep graze near a small stream.


Hunting Hall is a wonderful place to stay. On our traditional family farm there are always animals to see; a Middle White sow in a barn full of straw with piglets playing hide-and-seek, hens, bantams, geese and ducks, waddling about. There are acres of farmland to explore along a farm trail winding through wildflower edged fields that are a haven for wildlife.

A holiday at Hunting Hall offers a wonderful diverse landscape to explore. The Holy Island Causeway, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is only five miles away and there are long stretches of deserted sandy beaches with the dramatic costal castles of Bamburgh, Lindisfarne, Warkworth and Dundstanburgh. Inland, towards the Cheviot Hills, the countryside becomes much wilder and there are some breathtaking walks through valleys and over heather topped hillsides. Northumberland has bustling market towns, picturesque villages, stately homes and museums. National Cycle Network Route 1 and The St. Cuthbert’s Way lie only 2 miles away, so it’s a perfect base for walkers and cyclists.

We hope visitors to Hunting Hall will discover the wonderful natural heritage of North Northumberland and help us protect this special environment. In 2009 we were delighted to win the North East Sustainable Tourism Award, and in 2011 Hunting Hall won two Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Awards for Excellence; Sustainable Tourism and Farming and Land Management
