What Propology love about 2 Stewards Cottage and Woodhorn Village:

If you’ve been searching for that perfect stone cottage and a garden where you can enjoy the summer relaxing, entertaining or a passion for everything horticultural, number 2 Stewards Cottage could be it. It has absolutely everything you could wish for and has the benefit of being close to Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, a quintessential English seaside town, with a wealth of independent shops and a beach, which was re-vamped and had huge investment in 2007. There’s a stunning promenade and a wonderful choice of cafes and eateries, including an award winning Italian ice-cream parlour. It’s perfect for a main residence or second home; a rural setting, whilst being so close to amenities in Newbiggin and half an hour’s drive to Newcastle.

We love the idyllic country cottage feeling that surrounds you when you walk into this property. Here at Propology we love all things to do with character, charm and period features and this cottage has it all – from the stone fireplace with a mulitfuel stove to the exposed beams and stone walls and right down to the ledge and brace doors. All of these wonderful features create the typical character cottage we all dream of.
