The Property

Low Tipalt Farm is a hugely appealing upland farm incorporating a substantial farmhouse with an extensive range of outbuildings and surrounded by around 50 acres of farmland, with the possibility of purchasing additional land, subject to negotiations. The property is situated amongst sweeping countryside close to the route of historic Hadrian’s Wall, in an elevated position in the Northumberland National Park. There are breathtaking uninterrupted panoramic views over some of the most striking countryside the north east has to offer.

The farmhouse has a wonderful traditional feeling, spacious accommodation throughout and a remarkable unspoiled location. The front door opens to the entrance hall, and there is also a rear hall reached from the gravelled rear courtyard which is ideal for everyday access. Two substantial reception rooms sit to the front elevation. The sitting room features a multi-fuel burner set in a lovely stone inglenook, beams to the ceiling and fitted storage. Across the front hall is the dining room for formal entertaining. The kitchen/breakfast room stretches across the rear of the property with a fine range of units and cabinetry, complementary work surfaces and striking floor tiling. Appliances include a double oven and a ceramic hob with extractor over. There is space for a dishwasher and plenty of room for a table and chairs for casual dining and entertaining. The kitchen is served by a good size utility room. Also reached from the rear hall is the garden room/study. This room is dual aspect with French doors opening to the side of the property. It offers a perfect spot to work from home in a bright and relaxing space. A shower room/wet room completes the ground floor accommodation.

Stairs lead up to the upper hall and all the bedroom accommodation. There are three generous bedrooms, all light, spacious and positioned to capture the stunning views. The bedrooms are served by the family bathroom with clawfoot bath, wash hand basin and WC. There is also extensive storage accessible from the upper hall and one bedroom.


Low Tipalt Farm is reached along a scenic tarmac road (adopted by the Council) leading through the inspiring surrounds. The farmhouse has a front garden that is mainly laid to lawn. To the side and rear of the property are pebbled areas leading to a mature garden on a raised bed and a small woodland beyond.

There is a fine range of outbuildings including a mix of modern cattle sheds and traditional stone buildings. A single storey traditional farm building offers general storage, whilst a livestock/storage shed incorporates feed bins. A second livestock shed, wooden barn, two cattle sheds and two sheep sheds complete the range of outbuildings.

Surrounding Low Tipalt is land extending in all to around 50 acres. The land consists of mowing, pasture and upland grazing land. In addition, there may be the opportunity to purchase further land, subject to separate negotiations.

The Basic Farm Payments are being applied for in 2021. Transfer of the Entitlements of the 2020/2021 payments will be negotiated on a percentage basis. There is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) along the river Tipalt.
