A delightful Grade II listed property, in a wonderful peaceful setting, on the edge of the village of Elsdon.
Townfoot Cottage adjoins the owner's farmhouse and was originally an old farm cow byre.
Decorated, equipped and furnished to very high standards throughout, the cottage has retained much character with rugs over stone flagged and wooden floors.

About the location
Otterburn 2 miles; Rothbury 10 miles.
Set in the heart of the Cheviots, on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, the unspoilt village of Elsdon lies in a sheltered hollow amidst beautiful fells, rolling moorland and woodlands. The area is steeped in history, and has numerous listed sites within the Parish, dominated by the fortified Pele Tower. The village of Elsdon has been described as the perfect Northumbrian village, with an ancient parish church, an extensive village green and the remains of a Motte and Bailey Castle, as well as the famous gibbet at the summit of Gallow Hill, with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. There are several pubs within a 15-minutes drive of the cottage, including The Redesdale Arms, a 16th century coaching inn known locally as the 'First and Last' Inn on the way to Scotland. There is a good range of shops in the small but attractive market town of Rothbury within easy driving distance, and with the National Cycle Route (No 68) running close by, this is spectacular walking and cycling country. A peaceful area full of interest to explore!
Note: Up until 7th January 2017, this property will have LPG gas central heating and hot water on a meter. From 7th January 2017, LPG gas central heating and hot water will be included in the rent.
