West House is a traditional, period stone farmhouse (with later additions) located at the western edge of the village, in a private/secluded setting. It makes the most of the views; its connection to the outside space is intimate, yet remains far-reaching. Built of local stone under slate and pan-tile roofs, the comfortable accommodation is well proportioned, with a mixture of old and new, and makes the most of its aspect and the light that floods in to the house. Of particular note is the well-designed and equipped open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, whilst the library and home office provide more privacy. All the bedrooms have en-suite facilities. The family room (also with en-suite facilities) doubles up as a sixth bedroom. The newer elements of the house benefit from zoned, underfloor heating. Outside there is a store where mowers/quad bike are" garaged", garden/log stores and, from the terrace, the informal gardens and views can be enjoyed. West House shares ownership of an adjoining field and, unusually, the solum of the road that runs through the village.

West House occupies an elevated position on the edge of the historic hamlet of Guyzance. Situated in an attractive and scenic rural position, approximately two miles east of the A1 and high above the Coquet Valley in mid-Northumberland, it lies approximately eight miles south east of Alnwick and three miles in-land from Northumberland's famous coast line. It is fringed by mature woodland with dramatic southerly views across the informal gardens and the Northumbrian countryside beyond.

Northumberland is renowned for its mix of breath-taking scenery, dramatic coastline and fascinating history. Being less than 30 miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne, West House is perfectly situated within the county. Newcastle is one of England's great cities and has experienced a major rebirth as an economic and cultural centre. Communications are excellent with regular east coast main line railway services from Alnmouth (4½ miles) and 26 miles from Newcastle Airport which has regular flights to UK and overseas destinations. The A1 gives access to local services in Alnwick and Newcastle upon Tyne. Northumberland is renowned for its unspoilt beauty and dramatic countryside; it has a strong agricultural and equestrian tradition. This part of north east England is famous for its golden sandy beaches, links golf courses as well as challenging game shooting in, walking, cycling and salmon/trout fishing on the Coquet. There is a wide choice of private and state education within the area.

Newcastle upon Tyne 28 miles (Airport 26 miles), Alnwick 8 miles, Alnmouth Station 4½ miles (Distances approximate)
