The owners of Melkington Lodge have created a stand out product. Their attention to detail and generosity was outstanding. From the hamper on arrival which was lavish with all we needed for breakfast to the picnic rug, cool bag and flask for the perfect picnic. The beds and linen are top quality which ensured the most cosiest of sleeps. We met the owners several times whom gave us a warm welcome and great advice to local businesses and places of interest. We will be back as we’re missing it already.

Lovely to return to this beautiful cottage. The Welcome Hamper was just as good as our previous visit. A great spot, with gorgeous views from the garden, and from the bedroom window!

We have stayed here many times and this time we were able to bring our adult children and their significant others to show them the place and to visit Grandma who lives just across in Scotland. As always Victoria who owns the lodge is so sweet as is her husband- they are always wonderful and helpful and the basket of treats is first class! Will be coming back hopefully in fall if not then definitely next spring!

A fantastic hidden gem of a place, so quiet and peaceful. Very well located for exploring northern Northumberland. Lovely warm and cosy inside, spacious rooms and a well-equipped kitchen. Really nice surprise of a hamper on arrival which was much appreciated after a long drive. Lots to do locally. It was also lovely to watch the birds on the feeder in the garden (from the warm living room!) We highly recommend the Plough Inn at Leitholm which was very friendly and has a much wider choice of veggie / vegan / non-meat meals than lots of other places locally (and things for fussy people!) Just a really lovely place to stay, we would definitely come back here.

Melkington Lodge is a fantastic cottage located alongside the neighbouring farmhouse in beautiful countryside. The lodge was perfectly clean and everything is to a high standard. The welcome hamper was a fantastic touch and really appreciated. Would easily recommend to anyone.

A really lovely cottage with views over the Cheviots. Beautifully decorated and well-equipped, in good striking distance from a range of beaches, castles and villages. Excellent welcome hamper was much appreciated after a long journey! I would highly recommend to others.

The lodge was ideal for our break in the Borders. It is in such a beautiful and peaceful location and a great base to explore the local area. There are several walks that you can do from the lodge itself (there are plenty of maps and guidebooks for reference) as well as the local attractions of Lindisfarne and Bamburgh beach. We particularly loved the outside space and how we could have dinner al fresco. The rooms are good sizes and happily fit four of us in. Would definitely recommend and would love to visit again!
