About Laundry Cottage

The perfect location for long days exploring the outdoors as well as rest and relaxation amongst nature.

Laundry Cottage is part of a row of cottages in the Courtyard of Wallington, overlooked by the main house.  Historically it was the laundry servicing the main house, and the flats above were staff housing.  Guests staying at Laundry Cottage will be able to find engravings from Mary Trevelyan with dates of when she refurbished the cottages to improve standards for staff, upon inheriting Wallington.  

Carrying on this fine tradition, we have recently refurbished the cottage to provide a comfortable stay at the heart of the property. With a garden at the front and back of the cottage that lead straight out on to the property it has never been easier to immerse yourself in all that Wallington has to offer.

Why not discover Wallington’s outdoor highlights which include walking trails, the family friendly Dragon cycle trail (with bike hire available), the walled garden 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, Seaton Delaval Hall, Gibside and Cragside are all nearby.

One you have enjoyed Wallington to its fullest there are many other things for you to see and do. The beach at Seaton Sluice, close to National Trust Seaton Delaval Hall, is a haven for wildlife and a designated area of Special Nature Conservation. 

Closer to home are Rothbury Village, Ponteland and Morpeth which both have a choice of restaurants, cafes, independent shops and beautiful walks.

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.
