Well House is a beautifully warm and welcoming country cottage with bags of personality sitting in an extremely pretty village setting in the historic parish of Branxton on the England-Scotland border.
Beautifully warm with bags of personality
Its location on the edge of the Northumberland National Park and just a half hour from the stunning heritage coastline will prove a draw for families and groups looking to spend some together-time exploring the wider area.
Inside, the spacious hallway creates a welcoming first impression with original oak beams, exposed brickwork, reclaimed church pews and characterful touches setting the scene for the rest of the house. The sitting room has a lovely vintage feel with an eclectic mix of rich tweeds, country florals and aged leather and wood for relaxed evenings around the huge inglenook fireplace.
The bright sunny kitchen with its artful touches is a super hub to the house and a sociable space to enjoy some happy banter over relaxed dinners and a good glass of wine. During warmer days, french doors open out into a private enclosed garden for long lazy lunches during the summer months, and where children can play safely and dogs can chase the odd stick or two!
The three bedrooms (one ground floor) are presented with pretty throws and soft linens while characterful deep window recesses, exposed beams and wood panelled walls just add to its cosy country charm.
There are super walks from the doorstep including a short meander to the site of one of Britain's most momentous medieval conflicts on the Flodden Battlefield of 1513 where you can walk in the footsteps of the soldiers who fought there and understand its rich historical significance.
