The Park stands within landscaped parkland that belonged to the former Swarland Hall (now destroyed), home of the Davison family. The Davison family were well-known for their links with Lord Nelson.

This handsome Georgian-style family house is an excellent find for the equestrian enthusiast. In addition to the main house, there is extensive stabling, along with outbuildings, all set within about 25 acres of grounds, including paddocks and grazing.

The house offers stylish and immaculately presented living space, with many of the rooms enjoying far-reaching views. The welcoming reception hall features a central staircase and creates a striking impression upon entering the house. The accommodation is arranged to provide excellent space for both family life and entertaining, with the sitting room linking with the sun room and adjoining kitchen/breakfast room.

The sun room boasts two large roof lanterns that saturate the room with natural light and bi-folding doors open the room out to the gardens, thereby extending the relaxation/entertaining space. The generously proportioned kitchen, fitted with an extensive range of units and appliances, provides ample space for informal dining, whilst the adjoining dining room is perfect for the more formal occasions. The ground floor further comprises a study/playroom that could be utilized as a fifth bedroom, a utility room with its own outside access and a useful cloakroom.

On the first floor, a generous master bedroom features a wall of built-in wardrobes and benefits from a luxurious en suite bathroom, with twin wash basins, a walk-in shower and separate bath. A second bedroom with an en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom, complete the arrangement on this floor.

This property has 25 acres of land.

Outside

The property benefits from an enclosed lawned garden, stocked with various mature shrubs and trees, and incorporating a paved patio that provides superb outdoor dining and relaxation space.

To the front, a large gravelled area offers ample parking space for a variety of vehicles and provides access to a large stable block. The building houses ten blockwork boxes, each with water and troughs, tack room, and a mezzanine storage area for fodder. There is also a open-fronted hay store. Complementing these equestrian facilities are some well-tended grass paddocks arranged to the south of the house, in the midst of the excellent view. N.B. There is planning permission to erect a double garage. Also, the vendors have applied for planning permission to relocate an indoor riding arena within the boundary, to the east of the house.

Situation

The property enjoys an unspoilt rural location with wonderful views across open fields and the lower Coquet Valley. It is close to the charming village of Felton with its thriving community and calendar of events. The village straddles the River Coquet via two bridges, the oldest of which dates to around the 15th century. This striking piece of architecture is scheduled as both an ancient monument and as a building of architectural and historic interest. As an important focal point of the village it is often used for community events throughout the year including carol singing at Christmas, bring-and-buy sales, and the annual duck race. Felton has two shops - a post office and general store - as well as The Running Fox which serves as a newsagent, an artisan bakery and restaurant. The village also has a fine gastro pub, a hairdressers, a doctor’s surgery and a first school.

A wide range of stylish shops and high street names can be found close by in the historic market towns of Alnwick and Morpeth. Both boast a good choice of places to eat and drink, public amenities, as well as excellent schools for children of all ages. The A1 is less than a mile away and there are also mainline stations which provide regular services to the north and south.

The Park offers a good base to discover everything that Northumberland has to offer in terms of country and leisure pursuits as well as places of interest.

Directions

From the village of Felton, take the B6345 across the bridge and turn left at the Running Fox bakery. Follow the signs for Swarland and Newton on the Moor.
