Charming from the outside in, Briggend is a delightfully spacious four/five bedroom Northumbrian cottage with a charismatic and unique personality of its own. The exposed stone walls, wooden beams and handsome fireplaces all add to allure of this characterful family home. With attic rooms to escape to for some peace and quiet, or a secret garden at the top of some steps you’ll find your perfect tranquil spot to relax in. With the River Coquet, renowned for the Salmon and trout caught by local fishermen, as your near neighbour, you’ll be able to enjoy the subtle and soft sound of a flowing river as you drift off to sleep at night.

5 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms 1 Reception room Garage and on-street parking Courtyard and elevated gardens

Briggend is a quirky, interesting and truly characterful 1,665 sq ft, four/five bedroom stone built end-terraced house arranged over three floors in the charming village of Felton. All of the rooms in this lovely home have their own unique qualities from the exposed stone walls, the fires to cosy up against in the winter, the unusual yet charismatic shape to the attic style rooms and the welcoming atmosphere that overcomes you in this quirky home. The layout of this property is something to admire too, with it being so unique and unexpected, you’ll find further rooms sometimes where you least expect it with what seems like secret staircases leading you to more and more space. Not only is the inside something to love but the garden is full of wonderful spots to sit out and soak up the sun with the quaint courtyard area and then steps that lead you to a somewhat magical raised lawned garden with an arched trellis, a garden bench and stunning flowers to appreciate. Every detail of this home, from the outside in is enchanting and full of charm too.

What Propology love about 6 Briggend, West Thirston and Felton

We just love the quirky vibe that this charming home exudes and the way it envelops you. Arranged over three floors, there is a wonderful sense of space but with a layout that will provide you with delightful little surprises like the light and airy attic rooms hidden away on the third floor. The garden is so peaceful and it feels like something out of a fairytale with all of the beautiful climbing flowers in the courtyard, the ferns covering the walls next to the stone steps leading you to a hidden away lawn garden and the vegetable garden.

The location of this home is a huge bonus with The Running Fox just over the road to get your morning loaf of bread or pop over for one of the best afternoon teas you will ever have! You’ve got the benefit of being close to The Northumberland Arms as well which is renowned for its delicious pub food but with a flare. If your taste is for real ale in a friendly environment there is the Fox’s Den micro pub which provides a range of local ales and Gallery 45 with its workshops for local artisans, gifts and regular exhibitions from local artists. Felton also has a post office, village first school, a doctor’s surgery, Village Hall with a well-equipped gym and a historic church. We also love the way that the River Coquet meanders its way though the village which means there are superb riverside walks on your doorstep. Felton has very easy access to the A1 (1.3 miles away), which provides road links to a wider range of shopping and leisure facilities in Alnwick and Morpeth. The transport links are also excellent, provided by the Arriva bus service.
