Bamburgh 6 miles, Berwick-upon-Tweed Railway Station 16 miles, Newcastle upon Tyne 49 miles (all distances are approximate).



Located in a truly beautiful rural idyll this cottage occupies a peaceful position, with delightful countryside views. A short drive from the A1, the cottage is easily accessible with Berwick-upon-Tweed a short drive away with a mainline railway station with regular links to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London King's Cross. This location in the heart of north Northumberland is surrounded by stunning countryside with so many country pursuits with the Cheviot Hills close on hand, whilst within six miles is north Northumberland’s Heritage Coastline with miles of unspoilt beaches and Areas of Historical and Outstanding Natural Beauty, such as Bamburgh, Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island, the Farne Isles and Dunstanburgh Castle. The north Northumberland Coastline and countryside is a popular destination for those looking for a weekend retreat or rural home because of its value for money and lifestyle on offer.



This pretty stone-built end terrace cottage occupies a peaceful location in North Northumberland, surrounded by rolling countryside. The property has an abundance of charm and character but would benefit from refurbishment throughout.

The property is accessed through the front door into a hallway where stairs rise to the first floor and a door leads to the living room, which is a generously proportioned room with a window to the front aspect and an open working fireplace forming the focal point. A door from here leads to a rear hallway where Bedroom 3 can be accessed and the kitchen. The kitchen sits to the rear of the property, with a window overlooking the side garden and a door to the rear. The kitchen is currently fitted with a range of wall and base units, with sink and drainer and plumbing and space for appliances.

Stairs from the first floor lead to a landing where there is a large useful storage cupboard and access to two further double bedrooms and a bathroom.



The property is approached via a private driveway which offers ample vehicle hard standing for several cars as well as giving access to the detached garage. There is also a useful timber shed and two stone outhouses attached to the rear of the cottage.

The property benefits from generous gardens which sit to the front, side and rear of the cottage and are in the main laid to lawn.
