The charming village of Whittingham lies approximately 8 miles from the lively market town of Alnwick which offers a wide range of shopping, recreational and medical facilities. The A697 offers access to the Scottish borders to the north with Morpeth and Newcastle-upon-Tyne lying to the south. Whittingham has a highly regarded first school and a well-used memorial hall which has undergone major refurbishment in recent years. The village is served by public transport to Alnwick, Wooler and Newcastle-upon-Tyne and there is a mobile butcher, fishmonger and milk delivery service in addition to a fish and chip van on Friday evenings.
The Little House is a pretty, stone built cottage located in the heart of the village, in an elevated position. Built in the late 1800’s, the cottage has been in the same ownership for the past 20 years and has been well loved and improved. The property will appeal to those wanting a traditional village home with an established sense of community or perhaps people seeking a bolt hole from which to enjoy the
fabulous beaches and stunning countryside of Northumberland. Situated just a couple of minutes’ drive from the A697 and around 12 miles from Alnmouth mainline train station, access to this gem of a cottage couldn’t be easier. Accommodation has been planned with modern family living in mind and provides 3 double bedrooms (one with en-suite shower room), cosy sitting room (having lovely views onto the front garden) with inglenook fireplace and multi fuel burner, generously proportioned dining kitchen (which runs the depth of the cottage) and a good size
family bathroom. The property is fully double glazed and there is underfloor heating to the dining kitchen. It further offers a good range of storage cupboards and character features such as beamed ceiling to the loft bedroom and kitchen, latch doors and an attractive window seat to the sitting room.

There are gardens to the front and the rear and the front garden particularly is a pretty and interesting feature of the outside space. There is private parking for 2 vehicles at the front. To the rear the garden provides a lovely, sunny spot for dining and a further space for parking an additional vehicle. There is also an extremely useful large workshop/utility space with power and light for tool, bike and garden furniture storage and plenty of space for white goods and general household storage. There are also stores for logs/coal.
From Alnwick, head over the moor on the B6341and take a right turn at the cross roads, signed Whittingham. At the next T junction turn very briefly right onto the A697 (signed Coldstream) and then a sharp left to Whittingham. As you come into the village, take the first left turn after you drive over the bridge and The Little House is just up on your right hand side.
