Overview

A gloriously quirky house complete with a conservatory and roof terrace set in an outstanding position with views across rolling farmland to the hills beyond.

Enjoy Northumberland’s magnificent star shows from the comfort of your bed with the bespoke stargazing roof

Poppy House is full of surprises; a seamless fusion of a period stone cottage with a contemporary conservatory and castellated tower complete with roof terrace. 

The interior styling embraces the juxtaposition of old and new. Exposed stone walls, ancient beams and local antique pieces sit alongside Loaf sofas, Weaver Green rugs, Nkuku accessories and contemporary local artwork.

Downstairs there’s a cosy sitting room with wood burning stove and galley kitchen to one end. The bespoke conservatory provides an additional seating area and dining space whilst an adjacent corridor has been repurposed to become a small work / study area.

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor; a twin bedroom in the older part of the house and a double bedroom with a super king bed, along with a family bathroom.

The impressive stone spiral staircase leads up to the master bedroom complete with sunken super king size bed and glass panelled roof for enjoying Northumberland’s internationally-renowned dark skies from the comfort of your bed. An en suite shower room leads off the bedroom.

Climbing up the spiral staircase and out through a low roof hatch, takes you to the roof terrace with magnificent panoramic views across rolling countryside.

The house sits in an extensive lawned garden with a pretty stream running along one side. The roof terrace provides the perfect spot for morning coffee, evening drinks or star-gazing whilst there’s an outside dining area on the decked terrace accessed from the conservatory.
