Lumbylaw Holiday Cottages

If you're looking to get away from it all, why not surround yourself with the peaceful, beautiful countryside, of Lumbylaw? We have self catering accommodation in the form of two delightful holiday cottages set on our organic working farm amidst the beautifully picturesque Cheviots and Simonside Hills, close to the historic hamlet of Edlingham. It is the perfect location to explore the delights of Alnwick and Northumberland, both coastal and inland.

Not only will you enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and beautiful views from your cottage, but also the grounds have features such as the medieval Edlingham Castle and a 5-arch Victorian viaduct over the valley providing a delightful and easy walk along the disused railway line. Our farm specialises in pedigree Lleyn and Beltex sheep and prize-winning South Devon cattle.

From your base at Lumbylaw you are quite literally surrounded by history! First of all from your cottage a short walk will take you back in time 750 years as you approach Edlingham Castle. Originally built in the 12th Century as a Hall House, it was fortified as a reaction to the unsettled period of Edward I and the Scottish Wars of Succession.

The castle, set in the valley of Edlingham Burn, was eventually abandoned during the English Civil War. Two of the last inhabitants were witnesses at the then famous witch trial of Margaret Stothard. Part of the solar tower probably spanned the original moat, resulting in the leaning section seen today, this along with the castle's fine fireplace are two of its most striking features.

Much of the castle's history was discovered during extensive archaeological investigations between 1978 and 1982. The castle is now under the stewardship of English Heritage. A detailed history of the castle is contained in both cottages, or is available in advance of your visit.
