A gem of a property.

  • 4 of 5

We are both admirers of old houses, and we loved the period features, particularly the stained glass/leaded windows, the shutters on the windows, the original fireplaces, sash windows and the stand-alone bath. The upper drawing room, with Peruvian furniture was stunning, with lovely views to the old square. Also, the private garden at the rear was a delight to sit in.

Very eclectic, I really loved how different it was to anywhere I had stayed before.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very well situated. It was close to the beautiful Northumbrian beaches and to the hills if you enjoy walking. There is so much to do in this are that. in only one week we did not even scratch the surface.

Period Property with a twist

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much, the property is near a number of attractions such as Lindisfarne and Bamburgh. We had a great day in Berwick which is an interesting pretty town with a great micro brewery bar. The house itself was quirky and interesting with lots of ethnic influences married with a period interior. The property was very clean and cared for, the city style garden would be a brilliant place to sit out in the summer.The only downside was the outside of the building as it was difficult to identify the front door, and the state of the front window put us off a bit, but all was delightful on the inside of the property.

Location

From the Owner

The house is spacious and has a private back garden. There are two sitting rooms so one can escape to a quieter room if need be to read or just sit by a coal/ log fire. Situated in the centre of a small village. 1 minute from small shops (newsagent! grocery shop, post office) and local pub. Good location for trips to Edinburgh the Cheviot Hills, Kielder Forest, Hadrians wall and the stunning Northumbrian coast and castles.
