About Bolt Cottage

A cosy stone cottage in the beautiful grounds of the Wallington estate, perfect for walkers and wildlife lovers.

Explore the stunning Northumberland landscape as well as enjoying out of hours access to the grounds at Wallington when you stay at Bolt Cottage. Nestled in the heart of the estate, the cottage is surrounded by trees that are home to a population of around 150 red squirrels with their own Red Squirrel Ranger.

This traditional stone-built cottage has two bedrooms upstairs  (one double and one twin) and makes the perfect bolthole for couples or small families escaping the bustle of everyday life to the peace, quiet and wildlife-filled magic of Wallington. Downstairs you’ll find the living room with wood burner, kitchen, utility room and the bathroom. Your four-legged friend can also join in with all your adventures as the cottage welcomes one dog. 

With the whole of the estate (over 13,000 acres) on your doorstep when you stay at Bolt Cottage, take some time out to discover Wallington’s outdoor highlights which include walking trails, the family friendly Dragon cycle trail (with bike hire available) and the West Wood play areas. Look out for wildlife too, from otters and native crayfish in the river to the red squirrels in the trees. Inside the Estate's house, don’t miss the dolls’ house room and quirky Cabinet of Curiosities.

You’ll find National Trust places Hadrian’s Wall, Lindisfarne Castle, Gibside and Cragside are all nearby and when you stay with us, or walk the glorious Northumberland countryside and coast, like the stunning beach at Druridge Bay. When you’ve had your fill of countryside, then head to the historic market town of Hexham, just over 16 miles away with its pretty shops and restaurants, or hop across to the bustling city of Newcastle to explore its attractions.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
