The Area
The hamlet of Dunstan is just a short drive from the popular coastal location of Craster which enjoys a range of local facilities including a gastro pub – renowned for its fine dining, art gallery, cafe and visitor centre. The area is well known for its stunning beaches and coastline, in particular the walks to Dunstanburgh Castle and beyond. The next village to the North is Embleton which has a pub, garage and village shop/post office. Wider amenities can be found in the historic market town of Alnwick with specialist shops, restaurants, pubs and hotels. The Alnwick District is famous for its unspoilt beauty with long sandy beaches, quiet friendly villages, the Simonside and Cheviot hills, well preserved medieval Castles, and gardens. There are numerous Stately Homes in the area including the fantastic Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland and often referred to as “The Windsor of the North”. The mainline railway station located at Alnmouth provides inter-city trains to most major cities including London and Edinburgh.

The Property
Located in a pretty terrace on the the edge of the ever-popular hamlet of Dunstan is this comfortable country cottage. With the principal rooms having a dual aspect, the cottage is particularly bright. A sunny entrance porch greets you and leads to the cosy, dual aspect sitting room with its attractive inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove. The kitchen leads on from the sitting room and has oven, hob, extractor and integrated microwave. There are fitted units with spaces for white goods and a door leads to the rear of the property. The dual aspect dining room, with a pretty window seat offering concealed storage, concludes accommodation to the ground floor. To the first floor there is a dual aspect, large master bedroom with en-suite shower room, a second generous bedroom (currently accommodating 2 sets of bunk beds) and a good size family bathroom (with roll top bath). The property benefits from double glazing and underfloor heating. It has been well finished and features character, pine latch doors and quality timber flooring.
