Property Description

These light and airy properties are set between the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland Coast on the edge of the National Park. Milfield Hill Steading stands in an elevated position; once part of a large country estate dating back to the 1750s, it was owned by the Grey family until 1967 and was the birthplace of the social reformer Josephine Butler. There are the medieval ruins of Etal and Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Alnwick Castles, Holy Island and the Farne Islands to explore. North Northumberland coastline (AONB) offers long, uncrowded, sandy beaches, fishing villages and seaside resorts. The Cheviots’ ‘rounded hills’ and the Pennine Way offer a challenging terrain. Cycling, horse riding, golf and bird-watching nearby. Village shop and pub/restaurant ½ mile. Bushyfield Cottage and Airidh Barn have achieved the Enjoy England Gold Award, 4 Star standard, for exceptional quality of accommodation, as assessed by Quality in Tourism for VisitBritain.

Level entrance through side door to first floor: Large open-plan living room with multi-fuel stove and spacious well-equipped kitchen/dining area. Ground floor: Large double bedroom with 6ft bed. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.
