With over 3,000 sq ft of sumptuous accommodation set over one and a half floors, gardens of around 1/4 an acre and separate adjacent paddock of around 2/3 of an acre, Phoebe's Plaice presents an effortless take on countryside chic. The traditional sandstone build is of exceptional quality, the contemporary interiors styled with good taste and panache. Wrap around sandstone paths and patios provide space to enjoy the outside gardens, accessed from almost every room. A boundary stone wall with electric gates offers privacy and tranquility. Located on Cavil Head Farm, our best selling development of all time, constructed in 2019, after the conversion of twelve original barns, the addition of two new build homes (Phoebe's Plaice being one) completed this outstanding development. Perfectly placed between meadows and surf, with good transport links and the much loved, iconic Heritage coastline. This home has outstanding views across the open countryside and towards the coast, with Coquet Island as a landmark on the horizon. Prepare to fall in love.

What we love about Phoebe’s Place and Cavil Head Farm

There’s nothing we don’t love about Phoebe’s Plaice. It really has it all when it comes to semi-rural luxury. The majority of the accommodation is located on the ground floor, making this a flexible proposition for those seeking single storey living space. The first floor is an added bonus with two fabulous bedrooms, (one could be used as a reception room) and a spa style full bathroom suite, possible living quarters for family or friends.

We love the semi rural location with it being so close the coast and what’s not to love about uninterrupted country views. Not far from the small village of Acklington, there are many activities and groups held locally, providing 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 ticks the location box.

A sense of freedom and peace can be found at Cavil Head Farm, as you breathe in the country air and listen to the soft sound of the wildlife. Just over a mile from Phoebe’s Plaice 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, iconic Northumberland coast.
