Situated within the Northumbrian village of Belsay, very rarely do such properties come onto the market with excellently proportioned accommodation alongside wonderful outside space, this Grade II listed house will appeal to all manner of buyers. Built circa 1830 out of local Belsay stone which was quarried just a few hundred yards away and originally The Temperance Hotel and then Arcade House Hotel, the dining room was the cafe, attracting cyclists and travellers until becoming a private residence in the later 1970’s. The current owners have lived very happily in the property for 23 years and have enjoyed the friendly community spirit of Belsay, which remains a very sought after village offering semi rural living yet still very accessible to Newcastle City Centre and surrounding villages and towns.
