To know the history of Waren Mill is only going to enhance your stay here. It has managed to reinvent itself over more than 800 years going from a basic granary in the 1200s to the substantial building that the apartment now forms part of. Budle Bay was once a bustling harbour with an endless stream of flat-bottomed “lighters” transferring corn from the ships anchored at sea to the mill. Out-going vessels carried the flour away to various destinations up and down the English coast.
From its deep-set windows to its wood-striped flooring, this well-presented apartment has managed to retain some of the mill’s original features. It might be on the second floor, but access has been made easy thanks to a newly installed lift. The kitchen is well-equipped and overlooks a spacious dining area and the sitting room has views out to one of the coast’s most iconic islands.
If you are after peace and quiet in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, then Waren Mill is where you should head. Don’t forget to pack the binoculars and camera because Budle Cove is a homely hide that overlooks the mudflats that are part of the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve.
