Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Although they were all the rage a couple of centuries ago, you don't tend to see many orangeries around these days, especially not at private residences. The fact that there's one on the grounds of this stone home in the sleepy village of Alwinton is a welcome novelty in our books. Step inside and you'll find everything from a wood-burner and a dining table to a telescope with which to gaze up at the night sky – given that the home sits within a designated Dark Sky Park, there's plenty to look out for. We're happy to say that there's a whole lot to like inside the main house, too. The design has a traditional feel with lounges filled with antique furnishings sitting alongside wood-burning stoves, a shaker-style kitchen complete with an oil-fired range cooker, and upstairs, a copper bathtub next to a window with a view of the garden. The address lies within the Northumberland National Park, so you can be assured of walking routes, historic attractions and quaint villages with which to fill your afternoons. We should also probably mention that there's a renowned pub all of a minute's walk from the front door, too.

About Northumberland

Site of many a medieval skirmish, the Northumberland countryside is dotted with evidence of its turbulent past between Scotland and England. Crumbling castle ruins stand alongside Roman feats of engineering – Hadrian’s Wall stretches the length of the county.
