Dilston Mill - Welcome!
Welcome to Dilston Mill, a unique self-serve
B&B in a converted historic watermill on the banks of Devils
Water in Northumberland. This unspoiled and uncrowded area is one
of England's best kept secrets and the Mill has been a witness to
its dramatic and colourful history back to the Middle Ages with
links further back to Roman and Anglo-Saxon times.
Dilston Mill is in a secluded but convenient position.
It is only one mile from Corbridge
and two from Hexham.
These charming and historic towns with Roman remains and ancient
churches also offer excellent dining and other amenities, including
a theatre, cinema, swimming pool and country park. Dilston Mill
is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty with a rich heritage
from the Romans of Hadrians
Wall to medieval castles, bastles and pele towers of the untamed
17th century Reivers and classic country houses and gardens.
Dilston Mills location and atmosphere provide
a special experience: a slow bed and breakfast with peace, quiet
and low key use of resources. There is no television in the accommodation,
but there is Wi-Fi and a radio/CD player in each suite.
Dilston Mill has been in tune with
practices long before they became popularly promoted. Low light pollution
affords wonderful 'Dark Skies' views of the constellations from the garden
on clear nights. The Mill is located on a public footpath, linking to local countryside walks.
Close to the bus and train as well, you also have the option of
and about while leaving the car behind.
The Mill is also close to all modern sporting
(golf, fishing, watersports, pony trekking, cycling, walking) and
leisure amenities and the vibrant entertainments, nightlife and
shopping of Newcastle, Gateshead and the Metrocentre. In addition,
the world heritage site of Durham Cathedral and Castle, Beamish
outdoor museum, Kielder lake, coastal beaches, hills, moorland and
the Scottish borders are all within easy reach on modern, often
uncrowded, roads. And if you venture off the main roads, you will
probably have the place to yourself!
