At the far end of the hall a tiled porch opens into the yard, while a second door leads into a self-contained two-bedroom ground floor cottage. Although in need of modernisation it is ideal for a multitude of uses including extra living space, accommodation for dependents, or as the source of a useful income.

The property is close to the charming village of Felton with its thriving community and calendar of events. The village straddles the River Coquet via two bridges, the oldest of which dates to around the 15th century. This striking piece of architecture is scheduled as both an ancient monument and as a building of architectural and historic interest. As an important focal point of the village it is often used for community events throughout the year including carol singing at Christmas, bring-and-buy sales, and the annual duck race.

Felton has two shops - a post office and general store - as well as The Running Fox which serves as a newsagent, an artisan bakery and restaurant. The village also has a fine gastro pub, a hairdressers, a doctor's surgery and a first school.

A wide range of stylish shops and high street names can be found close by in the historic market towns of Alnwick and Morpeth. Both boast a good choice of places to eat and drink, public amenities, as well as excellent schools for children of all ages.
