♥ What we love that makes Hethpool Mill special……
- Watching the barn owls fly on a summers evening.
- Stunning sunsets.
- The beautiful Hethpool Linn is only a very short walk away where there are waterfalls and you can go swimming if you are feeling brave.
- Just off the well-known footpath of St Cuthberts Way.
Normality resumed post covid. Immaculate property as ever and beautiful countryside.
Brilliant stay once again. Love it here. Can’t wait to be back!
Wow, what a lovely place. It’s brilliant for our dogs which is what I was looking for – safety! Big garden to relax and escape proof which it was, it ticked all the boxes. The cottage itself is beautiful and very well kept. Lovely and clean, nice and warm and everything you could want for a holiday. The place is totally relaxing, lots of great walks, scenery and wildlife all on the doorstep.
We will definitely be back and I will tell my walking group about the area too. Just wish we had booked a few more nights but there is always next time.
After holidaying here for many years, we were married on 24th September at Cuddystone Hall. The College Valley is very special to us and even more so now. It was a magical, wonderful day. The goats even called to wish us well 😊. Our families and friends were blown away by the beautiful scenery and I think we have inspired many of them to return for holidays. We couldn’t have asked for a better day for our wedding. See you again soon!
WOW! This is the most amazing place I have ever been to. The wildlife, scenery, walking, night skies (we saw so much, including shooting stars galore). We became abundantly aware of how insignificant us humans are when we looked up to the skies to see all those stars, it’s impossible to comprehend the size and timescales of it all.
We went up the valley to walk up the Hen Hole, it was the best walk I have ever done. We came back via Schil, next time we will take on the Cheviot! The views were stunning. Oh by the way the Mill is fabulous, we were very comfortable during our stay.
Thank you everyone who is involved in making this all possible for us to come and stay here. We will be back.
P.S. (Caroline here) – I love and really value the way this valley is being preserved for nature – well done, please keep it up. There are so few places like this.
We have returned to Hethpool Mill after 8 years and not much has changed, how lovely!
We’ve had a great time. We saw the wild goats before Hethpool in a field of sheep, saw roe deer twice, heard owls, saw rabbits, pheasants, grouse and lots of garden birds.
We look forward to a return visit and won’t leave it so long this time. Thank-you for a lovely, comfortable house.
Our fourth time staying in the College Valley, the third at Hethpool Mill. Had another fantastic week. Loads of wildlife around the Mill, hares, wild goats, baby rabbits, and the owls kept us entertained during the night with their twit-twoo calls.
We did some brilliant walks including Great Hetha and hillfort trail, St Cuthberts Cave and the Kyloe Hills, and finally we made it to the top of Cheviot!
Looking forward to our next visit!
Super, well -equipped accommodation. We have enjoyed a very relaxing stay here.
All lovely – thank-you.
Traveling by Car:
From the South:
Leave the A1 for the A697 north of Morpeth, signed for Coldstream. Stay on the road until a couple of miles north of Wooler; at Akeld buildings there is a left turn signposted to Kirknewton and Yetholm. Turn left and follow the road for three miles. Go through Kirknewton and over the little bridge, just after the bridge there are some cottages on the left. At the end of the cottages turn left, signposted to Hethpool.
From the North:
Take the A697 south from the A68. Cross the bridge into England at Coldstream and through Cornhill and Crookham. South of Crookham take the second right – soon after the left to Ford Castle – Go past Flodden and over a cross roads, pass several buildings on your left and at the bottom of a hill where the road swings round to the right turn left, which is actually going straight on. Cross the river and when you come to a T-junction turn left. Follow the road past Kilham until you come to a row of cottages on the right, immediately before the cottages turn right signposted Hethpool.
The Valley is not easily accessed by public transport, however the East Coast mainline stations of Alnmouth and Berwick are within easy travelling distance. Regular bus services are available to Wooler from each station, and, if willing to continue, a bus can be caught to Kirknewton. From there you would have roughly an hours walk to the Valley.
