This spacious, characterful and well presented barn conversion is stunningly located in an elevated position in 80 acres of picturesque, private farmland, and enjoys spectacular views through the large picture window down the South Tyne Valley.
Access is up a delightful ½-mile private road which winds through 20 acres of beautiful woodland, home to a stunning waterfall, lovely river bank and woodland walks, and a wealth of wildlife. There are also 5 miles of top class salmon fishing available on request.
The property stands on the Northumbrian/Cumbrian border in the North Pennines, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a UNESCO European and Global Geopark. This is one of England’s most special places and there is much to discover - a stunning landscape of open heather moors and peatlands, attractive dales and hay meadows, tumbling upland rivers, wonderful woods, welcoming communities, intriguing imprints of a mining and industrial past, and an abundance of distinctive birds, animals and plants.
The Heritage site of Hadrian’s Wall is nearby, and Alston, the highest market town in England with galleries, cafes, pubs and steam railway, is 7 miles. The Lake District and Scottish Borderland are within 30 miles, and the cities of Carlisle and Newcastle will make an interesting day out. A real bolthole for a couple looking for a smart, peaceful, rural retreat to unwind and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Shop 7 miles, pub serving food, 1 mile.
