It’s not often a property in this style and location comes to the market. 2 Middleton Cottages is a pretty two bedroom semi detached, two storey stone cottage complete with pretty gardens, outbuildings and parking. The pièce de résistance is the incredible breathtaking views of Lindisfarne, Holy Island and the Northumberland coastline from the rear and upper floors of this charming abode. You will struggle to find a more incredible vista like this in Northumberland for the modest price tag.

The location is peaceful, although not cut off from every day life. The village of Belford is 1 mile away and has good selection of amenities. While Bamburgh is 7 miles away to the East The A1 is easily accessible meaning you don’t have to negotiate any rutted tracks or suffer no reception on your smart phone.

What’s inside 2 Middleton Cottages?

Please refer to the floor plan provided for individual room sizes and accommodation layout.

There is ample parking for several vehicles in a separate plot less than 100m from the cottage.

A cottage style gate from the pathway leads you into the front patio area and then to the main door.

Entrance Door:

The entrance lobby is accessed through a solid timber door which leads through to:

Living Room: (Front elevation)

A pleasant living room, with plenty of light coming through the large sash window to the front elevation. There is an old fireplace that is just yearning to be transformed into a wonderful wood-burning stove. Picture yourself sitting next to the crackling logs after a stroll along the iconic coastline. This is a lovely space just waiting to be transformed into something special. Storage doesn’t go a miss in this room either with a large under stair cupboard and a further floor to ceiling fitted cupboard on the opposite wall. CH radiator and TV point. This living room also benefits from being spacious enough to be able to fit a small dining table and chairs for those family gatherings or more formal dining. From the living room you have access to the kitchen.

Breakfasting Kitchen: (Side elevation overlooking the garden)

A really great space with a lovely outlook across the lawned garden to the side. This space is all set to go and ready to have an all singing, all dancing kitchen introduced. Practical with the vision to be contemporary and chic. This kitchen has ample room for a kitchen table with chairs. There is excellent storage with this room too with two fitted cupboards that make for the perfect space to keep all of your condiments and dry groceries. One CH radiator and open plan to the rear hallway.

Rear Hallway : 

A rear lobby with access to further ground floor rooms.

Bathroom: (Rear elevation)

Family bathroom, again with a good amount of storage with a fitted cupboard to one wall. A large frosted window to the rear provides plenty of natural light in. The bathroom is fitted with a white ceramic hand wash basin and a separate bath. CH radiator. This bathroom is sizeable enough to create a truly luxurious bathroom to enjoy.

Boiler and Storage Room: (Side elevation)

A handy room to have for storage, currently housing the oil fired boiler. This is a great space to keep all of your household cleaning equipment neatly hidden away. There is a window overlooking the side of the cottage and gardens.

Separate WC:

It’s always handy to have the WC separate to the bathroom in a cottage. With one CH radiator and a frosted window to the rear.

Staircase from entrance to first floor:

The stairway has natural light from  a large window to the side. From the landing space you have access to the two bedrooms.

Bedroom 1 (front elevation):

A wonderfully spacious double bedroom to the front elevation. There is a large sash window allowing lots of that all-important natural light to shine through. There is a fireplace that could be transformed into a real feature of the bedroom. A large fitted wardrobe space means that storage doesn’t go a miss either. One CH radiator and telephone point.

Bedroom 2 (rear elevation): 

Perhaps the best room in the house, because of those magnificent views of the Northumberland coastline towards Lindisfarne and Holy Island. Wake up in the morning and watch the ever-changing skies reflect off the sea and the rolling countryside. You can see far and beyond from this double bedroom through the sash window with its amazing vantage point overlooking a huge stretch of the Northumberland coastline. There is a very substantial fitted wardrobe space and with the right imagination and skill, could make an ideal en-suite bathroom. CH radiator and telephone point.

What’s outside 2 Middleton Cottages?

There’s a small patio style garden to the front and there is a spacious garden to the side with two lawned areas,  borders with mature shrubs and a range of native plants and flowers, the views from the end of the garden look over the fields towards the coastline. At the rear of the cottage is a range of outbuildings and dry storage. A short walk from the cottage leads you to a ample sized parking area with enough room to park several cars.

What Propology love about 2 Middleton Cottages and the location:

We love this charming stone built cottage with its incredible views and fantastic location. The condition of the cottage makes the perfect blank canvas for you to create your own personal retreat.

Venturing out of the house? The A1 is just a short drive away. You don’t need to go far to find a good range of local amenities in nearby Belford though, which has good local schooling at primary and middle school level, doctors, dentist, chemist and a great range of independent shops, Inns and resturants. There is also a farm shop and golf course. Belford has a very strong and welcoming community spirit that is evident from the numerous activities and community events that take place in the village. There are so many sporting and recreational activities nearby to enjoy and is a well established and desirable holiday destination.

The stunning Northumberland coastline with its historic castles and famed beaches is just a short drive away and the market town of Berwick upon Tweed, just 13 miles to the north with a wider range of facilities and a hospital. Inter-city rail services are available at Berwick and Alnmouth, offering regular and direct services to Edinburgh to the north and London King’s Cross to the south. Higher education can be found at schools in Alnwick and Berwick, with the reputable independent day and boarding school, Longridge Towers located just on the outskirts of Berwick with schooling from 4 years through to 18 years.

Further afield but not far away set out on a walk to St Cuthbert’s Cave, just a few miles from Belford. The highlight of this walk is the cave itself, where Lindisfarne monks reputedly brought St Cuthbert’s body in AD875 following Viking raids on Holy Island. Grab your wellies and flask and head to nearby Waren Mill and the stunning beach at Budle Bay to watch thousands of waders and wildfowl on the tidal lagoon. Looking for a castle? Bamburgh is a few miles away with the coastal villages of Seahouses and Beadnell all being within easy reach. Heading for hills? Middleton is midway between the coast and the stunning Northumberland National Park. What’s not to love?
