Full description

Tenure: Freehold


The Botanical Cottages
The two remaining cottages (of four) named Willow Cottage and Maple Cottage, are of a similar layout throughout, as indicated on the floorplans. They offer the modern comforts of a new property housed within traditional, stone built cottages and have retained original features.

From the outside the properties offer an attractive facade and preserve the image of a well presented cottage. Double glazed sash windows have been fitted and to the rear there are sympathetic single storey extensions to each property. The cottages sleep 4 per property.

Passing through the porch, an entrance hallway leads directly to a spacious living room with wood burning stove that provides a focal point to the room. The exposed stone chimney breast adds to the traditional feel of the cottages. The living room, with under stair cupboard, leads through to a hallway with access to the breakfast kitchen and stairs to first floor.

The breakfast kitchen is completed to a high standard with granite work surfaces, Belfast style sink and integrated appliances including oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. There is sufficient space for a family dining table and French doors to the patio, which offers ideal entertaining space during summer months.

The landing, with exposed beams leads to two double bedrooms with in-built storage. The bedrooms are east facing and decoration is to a high standard. The family bathroom incorporates a modern suite with over bath shower.

The properties are approaching the end of the third year of operation as holiday rentals and occupation levels have grown year on year. They offer an ideal lock and leave situation. There are no occupancy restrictions allowing them to be bought as a principal primary residence.

The Botanical Cottages are located within the attractive village of Lesbury. The cottages, which have a proven track record as successful holiday lets, are within 2 miles of the historic Northumbrian coastline.

Situated in the heart of Lesbury, there are amenities on your doorstep including a post office/shop and the popular Coach Inn, within a short walk.

A range of leisure facilities can be found within the village including a tennis court and fishing on the River Aln. The market town of Alnwick, approximately 3 miles west, offers restaurants, supermarkets and further amenities and the City of Newcastle is easily reached via the nearby A1. The cottages are well positioned for easy access to Alnmouth railway station ( mile).

Set back from the road, along a short gravel driveway, the cottages offer a peaceful and private haven within the heart of the village. To the rear of each property is a south west facing patio area.
