The property

A cosy end-terrace property in the rural village of Powburn, nine miles from Alnwick.

This lovely cottage is ideal for couples or small families wanting a countryside break in the heart of the beautiful county of Northumberland.

Set just four miles east of the Northumberland National Park, this property is set over two floors, with one twin and one king-size double bedroom on the first floor, whilst the bathroom is on the ground floor.

The open plan living area is perfect for family holidays; what could be better than preparing supper and chatting around the kitchen table.

On those chillier Northumbrian nights, why not get the woodburner going and curl up and relax with your loved ones?

There is also a small sun room to the front of the cottage which is perfect for storing coats and boots.

There are a number of walks from the doorstep with the Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park tantalisingly close and are just waiting to be explored.

Alnwick Castle and Gardens are just ten miles away whilst a little further afield, the beautiful Heritage Coastline with castles galore will provide a wealth of history and endless beaches.

A perfect cottage for a countryside break.
