A carefully modernised single storey cottage
Frequently used by the owners, a cosy retreat in a rural setting, yet only a short drive from the coast at Bamburgh with its magnificent castle and beach, or the historic Holy Island, just a few miles north.
Situated on the edge of a working farm just outside the old coaching village of Belford, Burn Bank Cottage is well placed for enjoying the delights of the local wildlife - around the farm deer and fox are often to be seen and from the cottage you can sometimes even spot red squirrels. The tranquil area is also a joy for bird-watchers with curlews, amongst others, frequently to be seen. From the doorstep there are lovely walks to be enjoyed, perhaps with your dog, along the open lanes or the footpath beside the stream up onto the moor behind. Back at the cottage the spectacular conservatory affords extensive countryside views behind the cottage, or cosy up to the traditional wood-burner in the sitting room.
Belford, less than two miles away, has a choice of pubs, hotel, newsagent, mini supermarket and craft shop with small gallery. Only a ten minute drive away is the small village of Chatton with an art gallery, post office/shop and a local pub, the Percy Arms. Why not call in on the way home from a day trip seeing Chillingham Castle, the Cup and Ring Marked Stones on Chatton Park Hill and the Wild Chillingham Cattle - all of which are only a short drive away from Burn Bank Cottage.
Steps up at the front of the cottage to a small porch with coat hanging and shoe storage.
Go on through to a small tiled hall leading to a modern fitted galley kitchen with views to the front.
The kitchen is equipped with electric cooker, ceramic hob, microwave, fridge and separate freezer, washing machine, night storage heater and radiator.
Step up to a generous sized sitting room with log-burning stove set into a stone fireplace, stripped pine furniture, sofa and chairs, TV, DVD player and a selection of books, games and puzzles to enjoy.
The sitting room leads through to a spacious airy conservatory with panoramic views over the fields to the west. Furnished with pine table and chairs, the conservatory has French doors which lead down to the small patio area and enclosed grassed garden.
