The Property
Cobblers Cottage is a characterful period property which sits amidst glorious rural Hexhamshire with Rowley Burn forming part of the boundary. The property retains an abundance of period features and benefits from fishing rights on Rowley Burn.

The half-glazed front door opens into an entrance porch that leads into the welcoming dining hall which has an inglenook fireplace with cast iron Jøtul wood-burning/multi-fuel stove. A door from the hall leads into the spacious, dual-aspect sitting room that also has a cast iron stove and benefits from windows to the front and bi-fold doors leading out to the paved terrace and garden. To the rear there is a well-proportioned kitchen/breakfast room, which offers flexible space for everyday living and entertaining, has a window to the rear offering open rural views and half-glazed French doors out to the terrace. The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of oak units with granite work surfaces, double Belfast sink, two-oven oil-fired AGA, integrated two drawer dishwasher and an American-style fridge/freezer. Off the kitchen there is a useful downstairs WC.

The bedroom accommodation is located to the other side of the dining hall. There are two double bedrooms located to the rear which have views over open countryside. One of these bedrooms has an ornate cast iron fireplace and built-in cupboard. The third double bedroom enjoys views over the front garden and Rowley Burn and benefits from an en-suite with shower and wash hand basin. The bedrooms are served by a charming bathroom with freestanding ball and claw foot bath with electric shower over, wash hand basin, WC and airing cupboard. There is access to the loft via a drop-down ladder from the hallway which offers excellent storage; there are Velux windows and heating in the attic.

To the front of Cobblers Cottage there is a generous gravelled parking and turning area with space for several cars. There is an expanse of lawned garden that gently slopes down to the Rowley Burn which forms the southern boundary to the property. A path from the parking area leads to a decked terrace and summer house which offers an ideal area to sit and enjoy the picturesque setting. Steps from the parking area lead up to a generous flagstone terrace and the front door. The terrace continues round to the side of the property and provides outdoor entertaining areas. There is a further lawned area and small copse which provides privacy and shelter. To the rear of the cottage there is a decked area with hot tub, perfect for watching the sun set and enjoy the dark starry skies. The chicken coop/duck house is included.
