Description

Ashleigh House is a joyful property resting in the heart of Belford village, set in the stunning surroundings of the Northumberland countryside. With stylish interiors, comfortable and spacious rooms, this cosy abode provides the perfect base for families and their four-legged friends looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Enter the contemporary living room and be greeted by a fabulous log burning fire, rest your head and snuggle up at the end of an action-packed day and unwind with a movie. Rustle up a hearty meal in the kitchen then enjoy it in the delightful dining area, the perfect place to pop open a bottle of wine and enjoy a good social gathering. Why not head out into the back garden? A stunning space to enjoy some evening sun. Rest around the Chiminea and enjoy the relaxing ambiance of nature. Finish off the evening in the second lounge, the perfect spot to relax and unwind with a good book. Retire to one of the two bedrooms, designed to give you a restful sleep.
Glorious Belford is often described as ’The Gateway to the Secret Kingdom’ and offers many facilities including shops, a tea room, pubs and an impressive golf driving range. The picture-postcard, coastal village of Bamburgh, dominated by its majestic fortress and wide expanse of golden, sandy beach is only 5 miles away.
The small and friendly market town of Wooler sits at the foot of the Cheviot Hills, a popular destination for those who enjoy cycling, hang-gliding, golf, horse riding and walking, with the challenging route of the St Cuthbert’s Way close by. Chatton Trout Fishery invites amateur anglers to fish, without needing a licence, on a picturesque, 4-acre lake.
Belford is located only a mile from the A1, giving easy access to the elegant Georgian town of Berwick, which straddles the salmon-rich River Tweed to the north. The cobbled market town of Alnwick, protected by its dramatic castle and offering a wide array of amenities, is close by. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction to see the Grande Cascade Waterfall and dine in the restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe.
Take a trip to the vibrant cities of Newcastle-upon-Tyne or Edinburgh, both only an hour’s drive away, or enjoy the journey by train from Berwick or Alnmouth. Ashleigh House provides a comfortable base from which to explore the Northumbrian countryside, along the Northumberland Heritage Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the Scottish Borders.

About the local area

The idyllic country village of Bamburgh, ancient royal seat of the kings of Northumbria, is set in one of the most breathtakingly picturesque coastal regions in the UK. With trips to the Farne Island Group so close at hand from nearby Seahouses, Bamburgh is certainly one of the most sough after coastal destinations on the Northumberland coast.

The main attraction in Bamburgh is of course Bamburgh Castle, one of Northumberland's most iconic buildings. Spanning nine acres of land on its rocky plateau high above the Northumberland coastline Bamburgh it is one of the largest inhabited castles in the country and has won awards in the North East Large Visitor Attraction Awards and the Green Business Scheme. To prove its universal appeal, the castle was recently a finalist in TV's Britain's Favorite View competition.

A visit to this area is not complete without a trip to Lindisfarne (Holy Island), a tidal island which can only be accessed across the causeway when the tidal conditions allow. Holy Island has a national reputation as a wildlife haven and is home to a national nature reserve. As well as numerous rare birds, you may even spot the grey seal that are resident on the nearby Farne Islands all year round.

Dramatically perched on a rocky crag is Lindisfarne Castle is a small fortress first built in 1550 and today is looked after by the National Trust. Accessible over the causeway is at low tide only, and the island castle presents an exciting and alluring aspect.
