Bushyfield Cottage is ideally located set between the Cheviot Hills and the magnificent Northumberland coastline on the edge of the National Park. The cottage serves as an excellent location from which to discover the area’s rich history and outstanding natural beauty that will delight all age groups.
In a delightful rural location, Bushyfield Cottage and Airidh Bhan stands on an elevated position about half a mile from the village of Milfield. The Steading was once part of a large country estate that dates back to the 1750s; it was owned by the Grey family until 1967 and was the birthplace of the social reformer Josephine Butler.
Bushyfield Cottage offers comfortable accommodation for up to four guests and one baby. Both cottages can be booked together to accommodate up to eight guest plus two babies able to sleep in a travel cots. The cottages are next door to one another and have a connecting gate between their rear gardens which is ideal for two families holidaying together.
The ground floor is an open plan living area. The well-equipped kitchen is fully fitted with a dishwasher, automatic washer/dryer, under bench larder fridge, fridge/freezer, microwave, electric oven and ceramic hob. There is also a TV, DVD, iPod dock, a CD Midi Hi-Fi system, books, games and free Wi-Fi. The lounge area has a wood burning stove with large floor to ceiling windows overlooking the front garden and sliding doors to the terrace outside where guests are free to use the patio furniture and the charcoal BBQ.

For many it is the peaceful and tranquil surroundings that makes these cottages special, they are the perfect place to relax and unwind. They are a delightful example of traditional Northumbrian design and form part of a conversion. Combining the character of old farm buildings with all of the comforts of a modern home they have double glazing and central heating. Both of these cottages achieved the prestigious Enjoy England Gold award, ‘4’ Star standard for exceptional quality of accommodation 2017-18 as assessed by Quality in Tourism for VisitBritain.
Both cottages are accessed via a short private road and there is ample parking available.
Both cottages are let on a purely self-catering basis. There is a café in the village that makes exceedingly good breakfasts and the village pub the Red Lion is excellent for evening meals, however, I would recommend that you book a table Friday and Saturday evenings.
Unfortunately, we are sorry but we are unable accommodate any pets.
There is lots of local tourist info and ideas for days out in the cottage and we also have a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page which I am sure you will find very helpful.
Should you have a query or experience a problem during your stay either myself or the property management company we use will make every effort to respond as soon as possible and to solve the issue. I live about 60 minutes away but I can be reached by text, phone or by email and we always try to ensure that visitors receive clear instructions as to how to gain access the cottage.
Please note that it is essential to bring a touch should you plan to arrive in the dark.
