A delightful stone built detached family home tucked away in a quite corner of Alnwick

Folly Dyke is a beautifully presented stonebuilt property of some 2,100 sq. ft. of flexible, light-filled accommodation arranged over three floors. The ground floor accommodation has a welcoming wooden floored reception hall and includes a large 24 ft. sitting room with wooden flooring and a feature fireplace with wood burning stove. There is also a neighbouring dining room with a large sky lantern and bi-fold doors to the garden. This room opens into a generous snug, towards the rear of the property, with wooden flooring, a large full height picture window and freestanding wood burning stove.

The ground floor accommodation is completed by a spacious rear aspect kitchen with a range of wall and base units, modern integrated appliances and a useful fitted utility room with access to the side of the property.

On the first floor the property offers a large principal bedroom with fitted dressing room and modern en suite shower room, two further well-proportioned double bedrooms, both with builtin storage, and a contemporary family shower room. The property’s large remaining bedroom with vaulted ceiling, Velux glazing and en suite bathroom with contemporary freestanding bath can be found on the second floor. The upper floor rooms largely enjoy either garden views to the front or scenic views over Alnwick and towards the coast at the rear.

This property has 0.3 acres of land.


The property is set in around a third of an acre and is approached over a low-maintenance front garden laid mainly to level lawn screened by mature shrubs and trees and benefits from a driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles. The remaining garden to side and rear aspects features areas of level lawn interspersed with specimen shrubs and trees and a large split-level paved terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, the whole enjoying views over the town centre towards the coastline beyond.


The historic market town of Alnwick, featured in The Times in 2020 as one of the best places to live in the UK, offers a comprehensive range of amenities including shops, supermarkets, Turnbull’s Foodhall and M&S Foods, public houses, restaurants, schooling, a hospital, GP and dentist surgeries and leisure facilities. It is also home to the major tourist attractions of mediaeval Alnwick Castle, Alnwick Garden and the world-famous Barter Books. Situated on Northumberland's Heritage Coastline, nearby Alnmouth was named one of the “best places to live by the sea” by The Times in July 2017 and offers a good selection of day-to-day amenities. The area offers a wide range of beautiful country walks, golf clubs at Alnwick Castle and Alnmouth as well as a stunning local coastline.

Access to the remainder of the region is available via the A1 trunk road leading north to Berwick and Scotland and south to Morpeth and Newcastle upon Tyne. The railway station at Alnmouth has regular direct links to Newcastle and Edinburgh, with London Kings Cross just over 3 hours away.

The area offers a good selection of state schooling including St. Michael’s C of E Primary School, Swansfield Park Primary School (rated Outstanding by Ofsted) and Barndale House. Newcastle upon Tyne offers a wide range of independent schools for pupils aged 3 to 18 years, including Newcastle School for Boys, Westfield School and Newcastle High School for Girls.


Please be aware that some Sat Navs provide an inaccurate route to the property and so you should use these directions for your journey. From Alnwick Town Centre, take the B6341 for Rothbury (known locally as Clayport Bank). As you climb the hill, take a left hand turn onto Willoughby Park and a sharp right onto a side road which runs parallel with the main road. Passing through the open wrought iron gates, the road bears around to the left. The property gates are the second set on the left hand side.
