With wonderful country views, this charming stone cottage is set in 1.5 acres of secluded gardens & attached to the owner's house. It lies in the tiny hamlet of Little Bavington surrounded by beautiful countryside in a relatively undiscovered part of Northumberland. There are numerous country walks nearby, and an abundance of local wildlife to see.

The National Trust property of Wallington Hall and the historic towns of Corbridge and Hexham are within about 10 miles ( they also have the nearest supermarket ...With wonderful country views, this charming stone cottage is set in 1.5 acres of secluded gardens & attached to the owner's house.
