CHEVIOT VIEW, NORTHUMBERLAND

A lavish pad made for big parties, boasting picture-perfect views to the hills and beyond...

Created from Lord Armstrong’s original turbine house and restored with the help of The National Trust, Cheviot View the largest holiday home at the Burnfoot collection of luxury holiday homes, nestled on the edge of Northumberland National Park – not far from the likes of Alnwick, Cragside, Hadrian’s Wall and Rothbury, as well as Bamburgh, Craster and Seahouses on Northumberland’s Heritage Coast.

The stone-built, self-catering wonder, popular for its panoramic views of the Cheviot Hills, sleeps up to 10, making it an ideal pad for big, special family occasions or summer getaways with plenty of chums.

Highlights include a large living area, decked out with a stone inglenook fireplace, cosy log-burning stove, flat-screen television with Freeview, DVD player and iPod dock, and shelves stacked with plenty of must-reads and classics.

The open-plan kitchen/dining room is a major selling point, too, with its glistening glass walls that open up to an outdoor terrace – the place to be for those fine country views –  and large, enclosed gardens facing the hills. The kitchen, meanwhile, is made lovely with a grand oak table for feasting, a large cooker to keep everyone’s inner-chef happy, plenty of freezer space and even an extra fridge (great for parties!)

Bedroom-wise, the property offers a good mix of master suites and other good-sized boudoirs. The master is complete with a spacious en-suite shower room and a 12-foot high floor-to-ceiling glass wall facing the Cheviots – with no neighbouring properties in sight! Undoubtedly the best room at Burnfoot, this room features exposed beams, a solid oak king-size bed with matching furniture, including a dressing table, and a plush leather sofa from which to enjoy the views.

There’s a king-size, too, with en-suite walk-in shower, tucked away from the main living areas, plus three twin bedrooms upstairs, all with zip-link beds so that they can be made into comfy doubles if you prefer. All have exquisitely-restored original beams with private views over the burn and towards the Cheviots. There’s a large family bathroom with bath and separate enclosed shower on-site, too.
