The College Valley runs north from the top of Cheviot, the renovated old mill is at Hethpool across the College Burn. This stone cottage provides exceptional accommodation in which to relax and enjoy the solitude and exhilarating sense of freedom found in the valley, which is a sanctuary for wildlife and home to a great variety of flora. Starting from next to the cottage the Harrow Bog is the largest semi natural ancient woodland in the Northumberland National Park. Walkers who seek unspoilt and natural landscape with spectacular scenery need look no further. There are four challenging circular Hillfort Trails in the College Valley - Hethas Hike, Ring Chesters Round, Four Forts Foray and the River and Ramparts Ramble and many other walks of varying difficulty or you can just wander down to the stream. Close to Hethpool Lake. Hethpool Mill has grown more and more popular each year.

The whole experience with Original Cottages was perfect. All the information required for our stay in College Valley was sent before our visit and explained everything we needed for the holiday. Big thanks to everyone involved for making it the perfect holiday for our 40th wedding anniversary
Fantastic stay, love it and as it was previously in our family for over 30 years amazing to see and enjoy the transformation. Just a very small thing, sugar! - we forgot ours and you had some tea's and coffee's but there was no sugar?
One of the few places I keep coming back to, beautiful out of the way location, Internet so I can still work if needed - and Ross is great!
Lower score on quality and comfort as downstairs bathroom smells very damp all time. Rest of property very good. Beds and bed linen very comfortable. Lovely cottage overall.
Excellent cottage. Hidden gem!
This was our fourth time at Hethpool Mill and we have been to Dunsdale once. Our grandchildren had a magic time, with an Easter Egg hunt in the garden on Easter Sunday. Like us, they loved the house, which was spotless as usual.
Having stayed at the property previously, I knew pretty much what to expect so I was fairly confident that the cottage would still be of a certain standard - which indeed it was. The beds were very comfortable, as were the chairs and sofas. The only small gripe was there weren't instructions for some of the appliances - however, we figured most of it out ourselves!
Very clean, comfortable and well equipped property, set in the countryside with walks and wildlife on the doorstep. So good that we have already booked our holiday for next year.
If anyone is looking for peace and quiet, amazing scenery, good walks and plentiful wildlife then this is perfect. Go outside when it's dark an see the milky way (which living in a town we haven't seen for years). From our point of view, this place was heaven!
Extremely Quiet location , safe enclosed garden for our dogs, Home from Home
We came looking for peace and tranquillity and certainly found it in an all too short stay. Lets hope the next time is longer. Thank you.
As usual, so welcoming when we arrived (thanks to all concerned). Saw wild goats, adders, slowworms, curlews, heard cuckoo, larks, lapwings, deer. Bees providing constant background hum. So good to listen to the soundscape.
