The town has a wider range of amenities, hospital, schools and is close to a variety of stunning beaches on Northumberland’s heritage coast.

The Property
Birling West Cottage hasn’t just been a loved and beautifully maintained family home for more than 40 years; it has also been a very successful bed and breakfast/holiday cottage for almost 35 of those years. Accommodation is hugely versatile and could provide a very comfortable family home with 4 or 5 bedrooms or, alternatively, a bed and breakfast with 2/3 letting rooms or even a self-contained 2 bedroom holiday let. The accommodation and outside space has been developed over the years to embrace both family and business life and, indeed, both aspects have been arranged to work seamlessly together. Accommodation to the ground floor comprises:- Stable door opening to entrance hall which leads to the sitting/dining room and kitchen. The country kitchen, with its beamed ceiling, is welcoming and is very well equipped with fitted cupboards, offering plenty of storage, with integrated appliances including dishwasher, double fridge freezer. There is a breakfasting area and a quality range cooker set in an over mantle. The triple aspect sitting/dining room looks over the pretty front garden with its stream, bridge and cottage-style planting. It has working shutters, a beamed ceiling, inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and exposed stone wall which add character and charm to the room. There is an additional reception room by way of a snug at the side of the property off the kitchen. This is a cosy, comfortable, dual aspect room with its original tiled fireplace and French doors leading onto the sunny terrace. At the rear of the house on the ground floor are 2 double bedrooms, both with fully tiled en-suite facilities. There is an another fully tiled shower room on this floor along with a second well equipped kitchen which is currently used as an extra facility for entertaining and was previously used for the self-contained holiday let which has its own entrance at the rear of the property.
There is a discreet staircase rising from the sitting room to the first floor where the landing area is currently utilised as an office. Off the landing is the master bedroom, family bathroom and 2 further bedrooms. Built-in cupboards provide plenty of landing storage. The property has been very well maintained across the years and character features (including beamed ceilings and oak/latch internal doors) mix with modern conveniences (including underfloor heating and double glazing).
