Entering the delightful period property from the lovely patio areas, through to the large rustic farmhouse kitchen with Aga, combi-microwave, pantry with fridge/freezer and central island with seating area, perfect for family gatherings. Through from the kitchen is the snug, this is an ideal place to enjoy a good book and to relax in front of the roaring wood burner, on those cooler days and nights; followed by the lounge with splendid views over Catcleugh Reservoir, with TV/DVD, double comfy sofa bed and wood burner great for cosy nights in. Next door to the kitchen to your right is the dining room, filled with characterful features and wood burner, the perfect place for the family to enjoy a good evening meal together. Finally, completing the ground floor is the utility/boot room, with washing machine, tumble dryer and rear door out to the surrounding fields, with direct access onto the Pennine Way. Heading upstairs you will find four individually decorated bedrooms. A lovely spacious double bedroom with stylish en-suite shower room and WC. A cosy double bedroom with front garden and forest views. Next to this is the fantastic bathroom with free standing, roll-top bath, separate shower and WC.

Once you've made use of the two large terraced areas, be sure to head through the rear field and straight onto the Pennine Way, a huge 267-mile walk stretching across the north of England. Whilst you may not want to challenge the family to that, you can make use of the nearby countryside and enjoy some of the wonderful views - you are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty after all. The Northumberland National Park that surrounds you is, in fact, a designated Dark Sky Park, meaning that on a clear night the stars shine brightly in the sky, so be sure to head out after dark for a spot of stargazing. Once you've explored every nook and cranny of the surrounding countryside then take a day out to the Cragside National Park (29 miles) to experience an eccentric Victorian mansion frozen in time. The previous home of the Victorian inventor Lord Armstrong, the house was the first ever to be powered by hydroelectric and now displays some of the wondrous gadgets that used to run this home.
