Townhead Farm is a collection of agricultural buildings and land set around a farm courtyard on the edge of Bardon Mill and just off the A69. This represents a wonderful opportunity for residential dwellings, holiday home accommodation or similar subject to the necessary planning consents. The stone built byres may suit conversion whilst the covered hay barn and ancillary stores could be removed to allow space for possible new build. The site has two points of easy access from the main road. There is mains electricity and mains water supply to the site.
There is an opportunity to convert the buildings into holiday accommodation, a bunkhouse or bed and breakfast in order to take advantage of the local tourism. Housesteads, Vindolanda, The Sill, Thirlwall Castle, Walltown Country Park and the Roman Army Musuem are all close by and enjoy a great number of visitors throughout the year. The local Errington Reay pottery and shop in Bardon Mill is also a draw for tourists and locals.
