A charming link-detached sandstone cottage with land and a 3 stable barn

West Townhead Cottage is a beautifully presented stone-built property with breathtaking countryside views and attractively presented accommodation within a highly desirable setting.

The generously proportioned dual aspect sitting room has exposed beamed ceilings and a stone inglenook fireplace with multifuel stove, offering the ideal space to unwind. The dining kitchen adjacent is well-designed, with a selection of newly fitted midnight blue wall and base cabinetry and handy storage solutions, a butler sink, dual fuel range cooker, thick oak worktops and pleasing views of the rear garden via a glass door that floods the space with light. Another charming stone inglenook fireplace and real hardwood floors throughout bring additional warmth and character. A utility room with sink and storage sits alongside, having a stable style door for side external access and leading to the contemporary shower room with a glass panelled walk-in shower.

On the first floor, the principal bedroom suite enjoys the use of its own luxurious en suite shower room leading to a spacious dressing room, while the two additional bedrooms are well served by a modern family bathroom and all enjoy spectacular views. The current vendor is also connected to Superfast Fibre broadband.

This property has 4 acres of land.


A lush lawned garden enclosed via traditional stone walls wraps around three sides of the home, with a large gravelled rear terrace offering the ideal spot for alfresco dining and to soak up the sunshine. There is also a substantial three stable barn with numerous storage areas, as well as two paddocks totalling circa four acres of land which are perfect for equine pursuits. The property also enjoys part ownership and fishing rights of the picturesque Lisles Burn, which runs along the entire northern aspect of the property. Ample parking is provided, with space for a number of vehicles outside the property.


The property is located within a peaceful setting close to West Woodburn, with its active local community, traditional country pub, village shop and Post Office. There is an array of country pursuits available in the surrounding area, with excellent walking and cycling routes, as well as Kielder Water. The thriving nearby village of Bellingham offers further amenities, including a variety of shops, cafés, public houses, a hotel, golf course, library, chemist and Veterinary Practice, whilst Hexham and Newcastle provide an even more extensive range of facilities.

Road and rail links are excellent, with the A68 just a mile away and the mainline railway station in Hexham offering frequent services to Edinburgh (Waverley) and London (Kings Cross). First Schools can be found in Otterburn and Bellingham, with Bellingham offering a Middle School and Sports College. Senior schools are also available in Hexham and Haydon Bridge, with several private schools located in Newcastle.
