Catcleugh Farmhouse

Wake up every morning to the UK’s most breath-taking scenery in this stunning period property, set in the heart of the Northumberland National Park. A former hunting lodge for the Duke of Northumberland, Catcleugh Farmhouse enjoys sweeping panoramic views of Catcleugh Reservoir, as well as unrivalled access to Kielderhead National Nature Reserve, home to England’s largest area of woodland. Enjoy all the comforts and conveniences of modern living, surrounded by the most gorgeous, unspoilt Northumbrian countryside.

This magnificent family home has been lovingly restored, while retaining many of its beautiful period features. Original inglenook fireplaces, working shutters and an ancient woodland garden all add to the character of this truly unique property, blending old with new to marvellous effect.

Catcleugh Farmhouse is set in approximately 15 acres of lovely gardens, woodland and hill pasture, and offers the opportunity for equestrian use or the keeping of livestock.

Located in a very special part of Northumberland, and measuring over 5000 square feet, Catcleugh Farmhouse has extremely versatile and spacious accommodation. Currently the property is arranged as two interconnecting, four-bedroom properties, each with their own beautiful and generous individual accommodation. The former tack room, a stone-built outbuilding, has planning permission to be developed into a two-bedroom cottage. At present the property is being run as a successful holiday home and offers a perfect lifestyle opportunity to be able to live in one side of the property and generate an income from the other. Alternatively, it would be ideal for multi-generational living. Or, in its entirety, it would make the perfect large family home, in a truly beautiful part of the country.

With an abundance of wildlife, awe-inspiring surroundings and its location in England’s first international Dark Sky Park, Catcleugh Farmhouse provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase not just a magnificent property, but a real piece of Northumbrian history and culture.
