Milfield is a small village just outside the Northumberland National Park and in an area that is steeped in history from the Saxon palace of Maelmin, through many battles between the Scots and English (including the slaughter at Flodden) to the use of the airfield in WWII. The village is well located between the rugged Cheviot Hills to the west and the wonderful sandy beaches of the coast to the east. There is a thriving village community with the popular Red Lion Inn and the Café Maelmin both within the village as well as a Country Store. A network of walks lead from the village, along quiet country lanes and footpaths and more challenging walks nearby include the Pennine Way and St Cuthbert’s Way.
The local market town of Wooler lies just over 5 miles away and provides a range of day-to-day amenities, including shops, restaurants, cafes, public houses, a health centre and library. Berwick upon Tweed is a short drive away and provides further comprehensive cultural, educational, recreational and shopping facilities together with modern sports and arts centres. The attractive Scottish border town of Kelso is 14 miles distant. A mainline railway station at Berwick provides regular services to Newcastle, Edinburgh and London. The A1 is within easy reach providing excellent access to the national, regional and local road network and Newcastle International Airport is less than an hour away.
The local area has a rich and colourful history and offers a wealth of sporting and recreational opportunities. There is plentiful open hill country with the Cheviot Hills offering great scope for walking and exploration. The area has world famous salmon fishing on the River Tweed and its tributaries, a range of golf courses and links, racecourses and other sporting clubs. The east coast provides dramatic scenery, magnificent beaches, sailing, sea fishing and diving. The local area is one of relatively low population, offering a peaceful lifestyle, but is within easy reach of both Edinburgh and Newcastle.
The property has previously been used as a holiday let and some of the furniture may be available by separate negotiation if required.
