Riverside Bed and Breakfast
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 Hadrian’s Wall to medieval castles, bastles and pele towers of the untamed 17th century Reivers and classic country houses and gardens.
Dilston Mill’s 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 current ‘eco’ 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 going out and about while leaving the car behind.
Popular with fishing visitors, the Mill is also close to all modern sporting (fishing, watersports, pony trekking, cycling, walking) and leisure amenities and 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!
Dilston Mill visitors are special; there is only one party at a time in each of the B&B Suites. They are COVID post-lockdown user-friendly, each with its own front door and no shared space. [Note, they can be interconnecting for larger parties when permitted].
For visitor safety and security, additional cleaning and sterilising plans are in place. Social distancing to minimise personal contact is in line with government regulations and tourism guidelines.
In a beautiful riverside position, Dilston Mill can be your relaxing base with fresh fruit, teas, coffee and biscuits always available. It’s a great place to ‘get away from it all’, but there is a wi-fi connection. The flexible but substantial ‘self-serve’ breakfasts are appreciated by visitors and will set you up for active days of sightseeing, shopping, business and fun. If you wish, information and suggestions can be provided to help make your visit even more special.
