A traditional stone barn conversion with convenient access to a sought-after market town

The Hemel is a former stable block sensitively converted into a family home offering flexible accommodation arranged over two floors, combining the best of modern living with some retained character features including high ceilings and large windows.

The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall with tiled flooring and briefly comprises a spacious dual aspect sitting room with feature double height arched glazing and exposed brick fireplace with wood burning stove. The well-proportioned dining room benefits from quarry tiled floor and garden access, while the generous dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room has an adjoining fitted utility room with a stable door providing access to the front aspect. The kitchen features a range of fitted units with breakfast bar and Belfast sink, modern integrated appliances, a range cooker and space for a table for more informal dining.

The first floor accommodation features a generous dual aspect master bedroom with built-in storage and en suite shower room and three further well-proportioned bedrooms, one currently configured as a study/office, all serviced by a generous family bathroom.


The property is accessed via a formal shared courtyard with a private area of level lawn and well-stocked evergreen flowerbeds. The remaining gardens lie to the side and rear of the property and feature lawn areas, a raised flowerbed, a paved terrace and gravelled seating area, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, and a rear paved area offering private parking for multiple vehicles. Alongside this is a garage with parking space for two cars.


Built on land originally belonging to Newminster Abbey, The Hemel’s rural situation surrounded by farmland belies its close proximity to Morpeth and convenient access to the A1. The immediate area offers excellent horse riding facilities together with well-marked paths for the walking enthusiast including a delightful walk through the nearby ancient woodlands of Athey’s Dene. The popular market town of Morpeth offers excellent shopping facilities including Marks & Spencer as well as a wide range of independent stores, restaurants and cafés, and an array of leisure amenities, including a golf club. Newcastle is easily accessible and offers a more comprehensive range of professional services as well as cultural, recreational and shopping facilities.

The property enjoys excellent communication links with the nearby A1 giving access to surrounding villages and towns and to the beautiful Northumbrian coastline as well as excellent rail links to Newcastle, Edinburgh and London Kings Cross from Morpeth train station.

There is a wide range of nearby state schooling including Newminster Middle School and The King Edward VI School.
