An appealing lodge with lots of thoughtful touches, countryside views, free golf, access to the coast, castles and major attractions nearby. It's the perfect holiday retreat for friends and families.

Situated in a beautiful part of rural Northumberland within this friendly 180-acre park and overlooking the picturesque on-site golf course. Explore the park and woodland on foot or by bicycle straight from the door and you are welcome to play golf as often as you wish on the 18-hole course. There is a small coffee and cake shop in the park, a pub/restaurant in nearby Newton-on-the-Moor and popular artisan bakery/coffee shops in Felton and Longframlington. Visit Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Bamburgh and Holy Island, take picnics to the sandy beaches at Warkworth and Alnmouth, discover Amble’s friendly marina and amazing seafood in Craster and head for the Simonside Hills in Rothbury and Cheviot Hills in Wooler.

Three steps from the driveway take you up to the wrap-around balcony to access the property. Enter the glazed main door, and you will come straight into the bright and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area. Your eyes will immediately drift towards the large windows and French doors in the lounge area which overlooks the spacious veranda, the golf course and the woodland beyond. The lounge has comfortable seating, a flame effect electric fire, and a Smart TV to relax in front of at the end of the day. There is a CD/Radio for your entertainment. The dining area has a table and seating for four and the well-equipped kitchen comes with a range-style gas hob and double oven, a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, and a washer/dryer. Heading through to the two bedrooms each with its own TV. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and an en-suite shower room with a shower and WC, and a ‘Jack and Jill’ door opening to the main hallway. The second bedroom contains a double bed with a separate dressing and storage area which leads through to the en-suite bathroom with a bath and WC.

Heading outside, you have access to the golf course for evening strolls and you may well see local deer and red squirrels scampering past at dusk. Sit on the balcony to enjoy al-fresco meals or after-dinner drinks watching the sunsets before the well-known Northumberland dark skies reveal the night-time show of stars and the Milky Way. There is off-road parking for two cars and two bikes at the property.

The lodge was excellent, fully equipped (lacking absolutely nothing). The site was quiet and perfect for relaxing. Would definitely recommend it to anyone planning a holiday in the area.

We had a wonderful week in Bill's Bolthole (despite the less than seasonal weather!). It is comfortable throughout and perfect for a relaxing break. The position overlooking the golf course is fabulous and from the living/kitchen areas you are unaware of the lodges either side. Perfect. The area has so much to offer that a week isn't long enough, wRead moree are already planning our next visit. Hide
