Retreat, Rest & Revive with your loved ones…

Discover a gentler pace of life and enjoy quality time with your nearest and dearest, all while surrounded by unspoilt landscapes. Milne Graden is home to eight-holiday cottages, all dog-friendly and each with its own story, unique character, and style.

Scattered across the estate and off-the-beaten track, five of our eight cottages sleep between two and four people and provide the ultimate private escape for those seeking restful time away with loved ones.

Join us as we explore Milne Graden’s one- and two-bedroom holiday cottages…

North Lodge

North Lodge sits at the north entrance to the estate, nestled amongst the heritage trees. The interior of the Victorian gate lodge is inspired by its surroundings, with a refreshing green colourway and features the iconic ‘Squirrels and Sunflowers’ wallpaper design by Mark Hearld and Angie Lewin’s Saltmarsh Storm II print in the living room. The sumptuous oatmeal Harris Tweed sofa is perfect for snuggling up in front of the roaring fire and streaming the latest Netflix series.
