What Propology love about Elderflower and Cavil Head Farm

Elderflower is a spacious and imaginatively converted barn that invites you to create your own world of crackling fires, flickering candles, cosy blankets and squishy sofas.  We love the Hemmel style windows that flood the property with natural light. Fling open the doors and invite the outside in, you don’t need to go far to enjoy the meadows and wildlife, it really is just on your doorstep. Elderflower is effortlessly elegant with every detail thoughtfully laid out to make this barn conversion feel truly special. There are luxurious and beautiful finishing touches and yet the homely feel isn’t lost in any way at all. The materials used have a sympathetic appeal in terms of their own informality, texture and relative rawness. There is a purpose to everything that’s there and a real honesty in the structure. The setting feels like an oasis of calm and tranquillity with the Northumberland countryside surrounding you.

We love the gorgeous rural countryside location and the views, yet easy access to the small village of Acklington and only 3 miles from Warkworth. Access to the A1 is easy, 4.4 miles to the west, making commuting to Newcastle or Edinburgh possible. Alnmouth mainline East Coast train station is approximately 6.5 miles away. This really puts a big tick in the location box. Neither luxury nor the rustic charm is compromised in this home with outstanding quality and craftsmanship we’re sure you’ll fall in love with this property as much as we have.

A sense of peace hangs in the atmosphere as you breathe in the country air and listen to the soft sound of the wildlife. Acklington also has a train station for those wishing to leave the car keys at home, there is also a pub with bar and restaurant and, with the many activities and groups held locally, offers a real sense of community. Warkworth is a near neighbour where the main street is lined with an exceptional range of indie shops, pubs, and bistros. Just 1.2 miles from Elderflower is the Morwick Dairy Ice Cream Parlour where traditional manufacturing techniques are used to bring back the true experience of farmhouse dairy ice cream. With over 160 flavours of ice cream and refreshing fruit ices you’ll be spoilt for choice!  This beautiful home has country walks right on your doorstep and is just a short drive away from the stunning Northumberland coast. This is hip country living, in a quietly grown-up way.
