Rock Mill Farm features a beautiful country farmhouse, cottage and two adjacent dwellings

We take a peek through the keyhole.

Rock Mill Farmhouse is understood to date back to around 1740 and now provides a stone-built country residence, surrounded by farmland in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Northumberland.

The farmhouse itself is a fabulous home having undergone a considerable amount of improvement and refurbishment work in recent years. The internal layout includes a farmhouse kitchen, garden room/conservatory and living/dining room with a log burning fire, as well as a separate study, ground floor WC, and useful storage rooms.

On the first floor of the property, there is access to four bedrooms, with the master bedroom having its own ensuite shower room and the other three having access to a family bathroom with a feature roll-top bath and separate shower.

Externally, the total gardens and grounds surrounding the property extend to 7.31 acres. The private garden has its own patio terrace and al fresco dining area, which leads from the doors immediately in front of the kitchen and garden room. The gardens are well planted and stocked, providing colour throughout the year.

The farmhouse has three holiday cottages which bring in a significant annual income as they are all let out for short-term furnished holiday lets. The cottages are all listed as 5* rated holiday homes.

Attached to the side of the farmhouse, on its northern elevation, is Rock Mill Cottage, a south west-facing property which has its own independent rear entrance and courtyard. Inside you’ll find an open lounge, separate kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom/WC.

Croft Cottage is an independent stone-built detached house, which was a former Georgian bothy and store shed. It is a one and a half storey building with an open-plan lounge, dining room, kitchen, three bedrooms, family bathroom, utility and cloakroom/WC. It also has its own separate driveway and parking, with an east-facing garden and a patio.

Finally, Newton Retreat is an old barn that has been redeveloped to create a detached holiday home. It has its own extensive south west-facing gardens and grounds, as well as a parking area. The internal accommodation has been significantly refurbished with an open-plan lounge, kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms.

To the south eastern elevation of the farm, planning permission has also been granted for a two-storey extension/granny house that could be utilised as further holiday accommodation.

Rock Mill Farm could of course be kept as a private residential dwelling with options of independent living for family relatives or visitors, but it currently provides a very strong investment income used as holiday homes.

Its location just to the north of Alnwick and on the coastline of Northumberland is very special, surrounded by many landmarks with stunning walks, beaches and castles, as well as golf courses nearby.
