The Property
Woodside is an attractive detached, double-fronted country house which sits in an elevated position above the River North Tyne in the small hamlet of Low Yarrow. The property is surrounded by glorious open countryside yet lies within easy reach of local amenities and is within the Northumberland National Park, a Designated Area of Natural Beauty. Woodside has been renovated and upgraded by the current owners to provide well-presented accommodation that retains an abundance of period character and charm retaining original panelled doors and decorative cornicing. The property has the additional benefit of an area of woodland leading down to the River North Tyne with private, single-bank fishing rights on a 70 yard (64m) stretch.

The original front door opens into a bright entrance hall with attractive original staircase leading up to the first floor. The bright sitting room, which has a multi-fuel stove set in an inglenook fireplace, has a bay window offering stunning views over the garden and open countryside beyond. To the other side of the hall there is a generous formal dining room with a feature stone fireplace fitted with a multi-fuel stove and back boiler. The dining room has a bay window with fitted seat and there is a low cupboard with shelving above to one alcove. A door from the dining room leads into the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a comprehensive range of cream units, single bowl stainless steel sink and drainer, ceramic hob and double oven, space for a fridge and plumbed for a dishwasher and washing machine. A glazed door leads from the kitchen to a back hall of which there is a useful cloakroom/WC and separate store cupboard.

To the first floor there is a bright split-level landing which gives access to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation, is flooded with light from a sash window on the front elevation and has a useful shelved linen cupboard. The fabulous, dual-aspect master bedroom enjoys stunning elevated views to the front and side and benefits from an en-suite shower room with shower, wash hand basin and WC. There is a further large double bedroom with views over the front garden, while the third double bedroom has uninterrupted rural views to the side. These bedrooms are served by a bathroom fitted with a bath with shower over, wash hand basin with storage cupboard under and WC.

Externally
Woodside is approached through a pedestrian gate that leads to the house and enclosed gardens. A path leads to the front and rear of the property. To the front of the house there is an enclosed walled garden with lawned areas, gravelled terrace area to sit and enjoy the views and tranquil surroundings, mature shrubs including a selection of rhododendrons and azaleas and a variety of trees including some plum and apple trees. Paths lead around the house and to the rear there are stone steps that lead to a further enclosed lawned garden that used to be a productive vegetable garden. There are a number of areas to sit and enjoy the fabulous views over open fields and enjoy the abundant wildlife that visits the garden and surrounding area, including red squirrels.

On the opposite side of the lane there is a detached stone barn and store which benefits from light and power. The barn is currently used for storage but offers potential for conversion subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. To the side of the barn there is a gravelled parking area with space for a number of cars.

Surrounding the stone barn and running down to the River North Tyne there is an area of mature native woodland. Two paths meander down to the picturesque river bank where there is a 70 yard (64m) stretch of private single-bank fishing. There is also direct access onto Falstone Angling Club Water of approximately 2.5 miles of mostly double-bank fishing for local owners. Being located a short distance below Kielder Reservoir, salmon and sea trout are abundant in this stretch during September and October offering very good fishing. It is also an area to view fish cutting redds and spawning.

Note: The vendors may consider selling the contents of the cottage should a purchaser be interested, by separate negotiation.
