The Property

The Holms is a stunning and characterful family home with substantial parts dating back to the late 1500’s. The property is located in one of the most beautiful and sought after locations in Northumberland, in an area designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Holms enjoys over 40 acres of attractive pasture and woodland with shooting rights, along with half a mile of the East Allen river, with fishing rights and access to Holms Linn Waterfall. Sharing the very private location with only one other home, The Holms benefits from a versatile range of outbuildings, including a large new 75ft x 25ft tractor or vehicle barn, a recently restored two storey building with obvious holiday let potential, or workshop and studio options. There is also a substantial former livestock barn, with further development potential if required.

A fabulous opportunity for a country lifestyle, while only a three minute drive to the award winning village of Allendale, which offers a supermarket, restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, newsagent, post office, butchers, doctors surgery and library, and a full calendar of social events including the annual three day Allen Valleys Music Festival. The market town of Hexham is around a 25 minute drive, with Newcastle International Airport 40 minutes, and Newcastle City Centre 1 hour.  

Entering from the side of the property a hallway leads to the utility and on to the kitchen and breakfast room. Benefitting from a dual aspect to the side and rear, this spacious room offers attractive tiling to the walls and floor and a good range of wall and floor units with glazed display cabinetry with complementary work surfaces. Integral appliances include an oil-fired AGA, dishwasher and under counter fridge with ample room for a table and chairs. Off the kitchen is the utility room with plumbing for a washing machine, walk-in pantry and a WC.

From the kitchen, a handcrafted oak door with iron furniture leads through to the principal living accommodation. The sitting room is to the rear elevation and this cosy room offers a feature exposed stone wall, inglenook fireplace with dressed stone surround, stone hearth and multi-fuel stove and built in cupboard to the alcove. To the front of the property is the dining room, perfectly placed for more formal dining but this room could easily lend itself to a number of uses. Returning to the rear elevation, French doors lead to a bright and spacious conservatory with glazing to three sides and door to the rear, perfectly placed to enjoy views of the garden and the glorious countryside. A shower room completes the ground floor accommodation.

An original limestone staircase with exposed stone walls leads to the first floor. There are four good sized bedrooms on offer, two to the front elevation and two to the rear. These are served by the family bathroom with suite comprising bath, wash hand basin set in a vanity unit with mirror over and separate WC.

Agents Note

The Holms adjoins a neighbouring property.


The Holms is approached via a tarmacadam drive leading to a hardstanding parking area for several vehicles. Opposite the property are stone outbuildings which are currently used for storage; three ground floor units and two upper floor units which could lend themselves to a number of uses. A useful tool shed sits to the side. Gardens are located to the rear of the property which are mainly laid to lawn for low maintenance with a sun terrace and barbeque area for al fresco entertaining. The property benefits from an agricultural cattle outbuilding, garage for approximately ten vehicles, and a mixture of grazing land and woodland with access to the Sinderhope waterfall and the River East Allen. In all the property extends to over 40 acres.

The Holms further benefits from shooting rights across the whole of the property and fishing rights on the East Allen river.

Environmental Stewardship Agreement

The land is registered for the environmental stewardship scheme – both Entry Level Stewardship (ELS) and Higher Level Stewardship (HLS).

The surrounding area is popular for tourism, close to Hadrian’s Wall and an ideal location to escape the hustle and bustle of modern day life. Allendale is renowned for its ‘Tar Barl’ New Year celebrations when men march around the town carrying barrels of blazing tar above their heads; this is followed by the traditional first-footing. The historic market town of Hexham provides a wider selection of amenities with larger supermarkets, a good range of shops and restaurants, professional and recreational services and a hospital. The beautiful surrounding area provides walks and other country pursuits, with golf courses, sports clubs and Hexham racecourse all within easy reach.
