What Propology love about Linn Ridge

West Thirston is situated 1 mile from the A1, roughly mid way between Morpeth, approximately 10 miles south and Alnwick approximately 10 miles north making the location of this home an excellent base should you need to commute. There is also a main bus route should you wish to leave the car keys at home. The village of West Thirston is separated from the village of Felton by the River Coquet that runs through the centre of both villages. The charming old bridge at Felton is pedestrianised making for a very pleasant stroll to the village amenities. The bridge is used by the local community for many events such as traditional bring and buy sales and the annual duck race. There is a post office, village shop, a hairdressers and beauty salon, doctors surgery a primary school and historic church. For food be sure to book in advance at the Running Fox for breakfast and The Northumberland Arms for lunch and dinner. We love the layout of the house and the surprising views from the back of the property. We think this home is not only practical but is located in a desirable country chic spot yet you can travel easily being so close to the A1.
