What Propology love about Elmire House and Warkworth Village:

We absolutely love the location of this property, being directly opposite Warkworth Castle. There are lots of features and character in this house and we love the layout and nicely proportioned rooms, the house has a nice flow to it although it does offer flexibility to make some changes to suit personal preferences. The private courtyard is a huge bonus along with the vegetable plot that is not too far away from the property. Perfect for living a slice of the good life!
