Foxglove Cottage is a spectacular  3,389 sq ft country classic style 5 bedroom detached home with stylish contemporary accents. This newly constructed property is only one of two, built with beautiful honeyed sandstone and a traditional slate roof. Built using traditional techniques, this ‘new build’ appears as though it has stood in this spot for an eternity and is every bit as beautiful as its setting.

Light and space were pivotal principles in the design and build of this extraordinarily special home. The room sizes are impressive, with additional lovely open plan spaces in the common areas, giving flexibility for the homeowner to create personal spaces. The principal rooms are also spacious, yet private, almost every room has a window, flooding this stunning property with natural light. The plot size is very generous and features a large garden approximately 1/4 of an acre with an additional 1 acre paddock on the site available by separate negotiation. There are plenty patio areas that wrap around the property providing intimate spaces to enjoy from some of the ground floor rooms.

The developer wanted to weave the cottage into the existing topography, for the light, building and landscape to respond to one another. This handsome rural retreat is more than just your average stone cottage. This unique home will be fully finished including the interior decor with neutral soft tones to the walls, the floors are solid oak and natural stone and the bedrooms have high quality fitted carpets. The kitchen is truly top of the range, fully equipped with beautiful natural granite counter tops that continue through to the utility room. The bathrooms are boutique style high end with quality ceramic tiles and walk in wet room showers.

Inside this incredible home a capacious natural stone tiled entrance hallway leads into a succession of calming spaces decorated in muted tranquil tones such as pale greys and off-whites, the cottage’s more contemporary touches create a streamlined, seemingly effortless take on farmhouse chic.

Foxglove Cottage is set over one and a half floors and is located on a quaint former farm. The location is a sanctuary, so peaceful, yet close enough to transport links and amenities and the much loved iconic Northumberland Heritage Coast with its 64 mile stretch of sandy beaches. A far cry from the hectic bustle of the everyday. There are quite stunning views across the open countryside fields providing peace and tranquility.

Foxglove Cottage is perfectly placed between meadows and the surf, the developer has paid homage to the humble agricultural beginnings of this farm by retaining the natural integrity and rustic charm and incorporating the use of new, natural materials within a traditional framework. No expense has been spared in the build and quality, there are plenty of luxurious fixtures and fittings as standard here. Countryside devotees and urban folk alike will find this stylish property hard to resist. The balance between contemporary style and the patina and charm of age is celebrated with the addition of this very special home. Delicately contemporary, yet still very much tied into the whole country chic aesthetic.

Cavil Head Farm is nestled in the stunning Northumberland countryside, in a sleepy hamlet on the fringe of Acklington and Warkworth. The gentle peppering of the surrounding, 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.

What Propology love about Foxglove Cottage and Cavil Head Farm

In 2016 we were the sole agents for the 12 luxury barn conversions at Cavil Head, we were given the privilege of designing the interiors and choosing the fixtures and fittings and naming the properties. This unique development was extremely successful and sold out before the site was completed. Foxglove Cottage nearest neighbours are these lovely homes, and its sister property, Blackthorn Cottage. Although it is only one of two on this site, it is completely detached and sits on its own 1/4 acre plot, with the opportunity to purchase a paddock by separate negotiation within the grounds of approximately 1 acre. We absolutely adore this cottage, it is the epitome of rural country style. All the modern luxury comforts without losing any of the charm of a stone cottage.

We love the semi rural location with it being so close the coast and the uninterrupted country views. Not far from the small village of Acklington with a church, pub and restaurant. There are many activities and groups held locally, and a real sense of community. Warkworth is a near neighbour where the main street is lined with galleries, a Post Office, inns, restaurants and gift shops to suit all tastes and the trendy harbour town of Amble is 4 miles away. This really is an ideal location.

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. Just over a mile from Foxglove Cottage 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, Foxglove Cottage has it all.
