Cavil Head Farm is nestled in the stunning Northumberland countryside, in a sleepy hamlet on the fringe of Acklington, the gentle peppering of traditional stone buildings have hardly changed since the last cows were milked in them. This former farm, is a couple of fields away from Morwick Dairy in Warkworth, a working dairy farm and ice cream parlour with an award-winning dairy herd. With country walks right from your doorstep, or just a short drive to the iconic Northumberland Heritage Coast with 64 miles of the finest stretches of golden sand and historic castles dotted along the route, this location is just about as perfect as the country dream home could be. The site is due to be finished July 2016.
