What Propology love about Koukat Bur and Warkworth:

“Our home tells a story about us, so we may as well take the opportunity to make it a stylish one”. We love this amazing family home which oozes the style factor and allows you to spread out in comfort and sophistication. We particularly like the kitchen/dining room that would make the most exceptional space for dinner parties as you can extend the kitchen into the garden via the bi-fold doors. This home allows you to have the best of both worlds by either enjoying the peace and tranquility tucked back from this quiet residential street in Warkworth, or gather friends and family and create a special place for entertaining.

The location is also a winner, being so close to the beach and a short walk into Warkworth Village, which is encircled by a loop of the River Coquet. The main street is dominated by the majestic medieval Warkworth Castle. There is a good selection of independent shops, great places to eat, including a chocolatier. A five minute walk from the property will get you to the charming 14th century Warkworth Bridge which crosses the River Coquet and to the medieval cave hermitage and chapel of a solitary holy man accessible only by boat. Within walking distance are Warkworth golf course which is a seaside links course designed by Old Tom Morris in 1891 and your local dog friendly beach which is simply spectacular with an expanse of golden sand and beautiful dunes overlooking the RSBP reserve of Coquet Island.

The dune system at Warkworth beach is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and is recommended by the Marine Conservation Society.

For those with sea legs the Coquet Yacht Club is situated at Amble Marina only a four minute drive away.

Access to Newcastle via the A1 and A1068 Coast Road is within easy reach and means you can commute to Newcastle via car in about 35 minutes. Alnmouth train station is only three miles to the north with frequent daily direct lines to Newcastle (25 mins) London Kings Cross (3 hours 20 mins) and Edinburgh (1 hour). Newcastle International Airport is approximately thirty miles to the south and Edinburgh Airport one hundred miles to the North.
