Overview

A far cry from its past life as the coach store for Middleton Hall, this inviting property enjoys an idyllic location with stunning country walks and bike rides right from the doorstep.

Set within 30 acres of private estate grounds

Set within 30 acres of private estate grounds and just a ten minute drive from the fantastic beaches of the Northumberland heritage coast, this generously proportioned property offers the perfect escape. Overlooking the Victorian walled gardens, there is a large open plan kitchen and dining room for entertaining, leading directly onto a courtyard area where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining during balmy summer evenings shared with family and friends.

The main drawing room is decorated in a period country style and is a warm and welcoming spot for relaxation or pre-dinner chat, while a separate sitting room with woodburner will suit those seeking a little quiet time with a good book. Children can enjoy their own space here too with a games room with TV and DVD player along with beanbags and play mats for some active tumble and play.

Each of the five bedrooms come with their own private bathroom, while the master bedroom features the original cast iron bath for a luxurious soak at the end of a busy day.

Outside, the property sits in a large open lawned garden and the substantial wooded grounds provide plenty of scope for walking, wildlife spotting, boating on the lake, or simply play in the great outdoors.
