My friends and I stayed in three of the cottages (Curlew, Kestrel and Merlin) at Beacon Hill Farm for a weekend away in February. The cottages were luxurious and very well equipped with everything you would need for even a large group. They were lovely and warm and spacious too with plenty of bathroom, kitchen and living space as well as ensuites in each cottage. The spa was also fantastic with a good sized pool, sauna, steam room, heated beds and jacuzzi. We had some nice treatments at the spa too. All of us commented on how lovely the cottages were, and that we'd recommend them as value for money as so much space and all sorts of other facilities were also included in the rental pro.
Our second visit this year first in Spring now in Autumn and after over 10 years visiting Beacon Hill it still pulls us back to enjoy all the numerous facilities that are on offer, Spa, Pool, Sauna, Steam room, gym all great to enjoy no matter the weather conditions. We had good weather and attempted Tennis & Cricket. Morpeth & Rothbury are market towns that are worth a visit and for an exceptional light lunch a visit to "The Running Fox" in felton is a must, but book in advance. Another village worth a visit approx 40min drive towards Newcastle is Corbridge and you will spoilt for choice for cafes/bistros and good range of small individual retail shops. We never managed to get to Wallington house - a National Trust property which we were told is worth a visit. An excuse to return to Beacon Hill next year. Now we have charged the batteries we brace ourselves for winter with great family memories. Alun and his staff are always friendly and helpful and are more than happy to recommend various places to visit including "Watering Holes" like the Anglers Arms or the Chantry Tea Room and Marabinis Italian Family Restaurant (good for the Kids - Pizza etc) We highly recommend Beacon Hill.
This was our third successive visit to Beacon Hill and as usual excellent. The cottages are first class and the leisure centre/spa gives an opportunity to burn off some cals.
Northumbria offers a fine combination of beeches and countryside with quiet roads.
I am sure we will be back next year.
Alun, the owner, takes a keen interest in his guests enjoyment.
