Main Description
The Old Workshop is a stunning single storey detached cottage in this popular Northumbrian village tucked away at the foot of the Cheviot Hills. Thoughtfully converted by the current owners in 2015 from a former workshop, this three bedroom home provides modern and comfortable accommodation in a lovely countryside setting. The local area is famed for its bloody history but now offers peaceful country living in fantastic scenery with many beautiful walks straight from the doorstep.

The entrance hall has a useful cupboard for coats and wellies and opens on to the bright and sunny open plan living room, dining area and kitchen. This spacious area is flooded with natural light and is the perfect place to wind down at the end of a busy day or to curl up in front of the crackling multi fuel stove on a chilly winter’s evening. The dining area is ideal for entertaining or informal family dining and leads on to a well-appointed kitchen with shaker-style kitchen cabinets complemented by beautiful wooden work surfaces. There’s a full complement of appliances with a ceramic hob, extractor hood, built-in electric oven, dishwasher, washing machine and a stainless steel sink. From the living room a hall leads to three light and airy bedrooms, two of which overlook the peaceful courtyard garden to the rear. The beautifully finished bathroom has sleek modern fittings with a luxurious bathtub, a walk-in shower enclosure, low level WC, pedestal hand basin and heated towel rail.

Parking is to front of the property and to the rear is a lovely, peaceful courtyard garden, designed for easy maintenance with raised beds, and is a tranquil place to sit in and soak up the sunshine.

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 attractive 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.
