The Property

Bart’s Cottage is a charming Grade II Listed stone built house,situated in an elevated and private position with fabulous views overlooking the Northumbrian countryside. It has been tastefully and thoughtfully converted yet retains a traditional feel with a host of charm and character throughout. Internally, the property offers bright and well-presented accommodation over two floors with high-quality fixtures and fittings complemented by tasteful décor and sash windows throughout.

The stone portico with double wooden doors lead to the entrance vestibule with flagged floors. A half panelled glazed door gives access to a reception room with oak flooring and beamed ceiling, currently used as a study, but could lend itself to other uses being a room of good size. This in turn leads through to the sitting room with part panelled walls, oak flooring, beams to the ceiling, stone inglenook fireplace with flagged hearth and wood beam over, multi-fuel stove and bespoke glazed display cabinetry to the alcove. Access to the well positioned and impressive Amdega conservatory is from the sitting room which benefits from underfloor heating, limestone flooring with views and access to the private stonewalled courtyard and garden.

The light and bright dining room is accessed from the sitting room and offers a more formal place to dine, offering many period features including full height vaulted beamed ceiling, open fire and impressive fire surround and double doors to the private courtyard. The kitchen is off the dining room where an extensive range of  floor and wall units with a central island are offered with  bespoke cabinetry, contemporary fixtures and fittings and complementary granite work surfaces. Integral appliances include a sink, dishwasher and oil fired two oven Aga, set within an inglenook style recess and an American style fridge freezer. The utility room is off the kitchen and has further storage solutions, plumbing for a washing machine and dryer, integrated wine cooler and access to a cloakroom with wash-hand basin and WC.

A quirky feature turret stone spiral staircase leads to the impressive and naturally light galleried landing with oak balustrades which overlooks the dining room and gives access to the upstairs accommodation. The master bedroom is a room of generous proportions with fitted wardrobes and is serviced by the family bathroom; comprising attractive wall tiling, a walk-in corner shower, pedestal wash-hand basin heated towel rail and WC.  Two further bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes, offer stunning views and also have en-suite shower rooms, completing the upstairs accommodation.


Bart’s Cottage is accessed through a gated entrance with hedged boundary and gravel drive, leading to a private parking area at the front of the house with space for several cars. The house is bordered by mature beds with a variety of flowers, climbers and shrubs. To the rear of the property an enclosed courtyard with stone walling and attractive iron gates leads to the lawn area with further terrace plantings, shrubs and trees. This provides an ideal outdoor entertaining space accessed from the conservatory. Wide terrace steps lead down to a lower level which offers a substantial “secret garden” woodland style garden with mature trees for added privacy and a viewing platform enabling views of the countryside and the River Wansbeck, offering a lovely quiet space to relax and enjoy the surroundings.  The attached garage has a remote controlled up and over door and benefits from power and light.
