Full of charm and character, an outstanding and unique stone detached cottage situated on the edge of the highly regarded and much in demand historic village of Warkworth in the hamlet of Birling. The cottage offers exceptionally well presented and appointed accommodation throughout, with many original features and is a credit to its current owner. As a successful bed and breakfast in recent years, the versatile accommodation offers endless possibilities from a family or second home, a bed and breakfast or self-contained holiday accommodation situated to the rear which can be made private from the main house. Birling West Cottage stands within beautifully maintained and pretty cottage gardens with lawn areas, patios and courtyards as well as a babbling stream to the front which attracts many wildlife species. Briefly comprising to the ground floor: entrance lobby, lounge with inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove through to a dining area, well-appointed breakfast kitchen with appliances and a bright and airy snug with French doors into the courtyard. From the rear hall a door leads out to the side elevated garden and patio with views across to the adjoining fields. To the ground floor there are two double bedrooms, both with en-suites, a further shower room and a fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances. It is this area of the property with the rear hall which could be separated from the main cottage to create a self-contained two bedroom holiday let. To the first floor there are three further bedrooms, one of which is spacious with a dormer window overlooking the courtyard and there is a bathroom. The landing area offers plenty of storage and there is ample space for a desk or a reading area. Outside, off road parking for two cars is situated at the front and a further parking space is across the lane. Gardens surround the property with super outdoor seating enjoying the warmer months of the year. The garden to the front is tiered and contains many varieties of flowering plants and shrubs and mature flowering magnolias. The bridge over the stream is a picturesque spot to pause for a moment and many wildlife and birds wander into the garden. The cottage is within walking distance to the village with riverside walks along the Coquet stopping for a welcome break at one of the local cafes or pubs and the 13th century Castle stands proud above the village. There is a glorious sandy beach in Warkworth and walks along the dunes and Amble with its traditional harbour, retail pods, Little Shore Beach and Pier is just a short drive away where there are also a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants. For a wider range of shops, the larger towns of Alnwick and Morpeth are within easy reach. The village is well served by a local bus service to neighbouring towns and villages and the train station in Alnmouth provides services to Edinburgh, Newcastle and beyond. We would recommend an early viewing of this impressive property is strongly recommended to fully appreciate the accommodation being offered.
