Description

Set at the bottom of a leafy road on the banks of the River Coquet, River View has been built all on one level with lovely views from the large French doors and windows to the front of the property. With uninterrupted views and plenty of outdoor space, this detached cottage is an ideal location for some peace and relaxation, yet less than a mile from the historic and picture postcard village of Warkworth. Just under a mile from Warkworth Castle, it is a few minutes’ walk from the property into the pretty village centre. This comfortable holiday home with a cosy wood burner makes a great base for exploring this friendly county.
Warkworth has friendly pubs and tearooms with walks along the river, where it is not unusual to see various rare birds. Amble, which is reputedly the ‘friendliest port’, is only 2 miles away with a working harbour, marina, Sunday market, small harbour village style pods, fish and chip shops and plenty of varied amenities. Alnwick with its famous castle, featured in Harry Potter and Downton Abbey, is only a few miles away, with its cobbled streets and famous water gardens, with a spectacular grand cascade and the world’s largest treehouse restaurant. Warkworth is on the main heritage coastal route in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with golden, unspoilt beaches, rugged coastline and historic castles. There is easy access inland to the Northumberland National Park, west to visit Hadrian’s Wall or north towards the Borders. Visitors often leave the car at nearby Alnmouth rail station and take the train to Edinburgh or Newcastle for a fantastic day exploring these two historic and charming cities. Beach 1¾ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

About the local area

Warkworth is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque villages in the whole of Northumberland and not only has an excellent range of pubs, restaurants, cafes, art galleries and quality gift shops, but also a magnificent castle, located right in the middle of the village, to admire and explore.

The magnificent cross-shaped keep of Warkworth, crowning a hilltop rising steeply above the River Coquet, dominates one of the largest, strongest and most impressive fortresses in northern England. The castle's most famous owners were the Percy family, whose lion badge can be seen carved on many parts of their stronghold.

There are wonderful riverside walks alongside the pretty River Coquet which encircles the village, to watch the abundance of wildlife such as herons, foxes, migrating birds, and a vast, sandy beach with dramatic dunes and wonderful, far-reaching views up and down the Heritage Coastline.

Cyclists can enjoy an easy 18 mile day ride. The route has no major climbs and is featured in the recently published 'Sustrans Cycle Northumberland' booklet. Starting in the village, the route heads west inland on quiet lanes, and passes through Guyzance, Acklington and Broomhill. Rejoining the coast at the vast expanse of Druridge Bay and returning north via the fishing port of Amble.
