This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase an attractive traditional farmhouse with two adjoining cottages in the heart of the countryside.

With superb open views of the surrounding Northumberland farmland and towards the Cheviot Hills, the Old Farmhouse in Ancroft is conveniently located approximately four miles from Berwick-upon-Tweed, where there is varied shopping and the nearest train station.

The present owners have been running a bed-and- breakfast establishment from the farmhouse and renting the two cottages for holiday lets, so this will offer the purchaser an excellent business opportunity.

The farmhouse has three reception rooms; a stunning farmhouse oak kitchen with Aga and appliances; an office; four bedrooms, two of which are en suite and a family bathroom.

Ann’s cottage has a shower room, kitchen, living room, two double bedrooms, and bathroom while Bees cottage has a shower room, kitchen, three double bedrooms, living room and sun lounge.

All properties have the benefits of full double glazing and oil-fired central heating.

The farmhouse has spacious and well-proportioned accommodation, with many of the original features including stripped pine doors and floors, coving and ceiling roses and stone built fireplaces.

Although the properties have been run as a business, it would make a superb family house.

It boasts pleasant south-facing gardens and grounds which have been landscaped to create a garden for each dwelling. They have mainly been laid to lawns, with paved sitting areas.
