This impressive detached house, situated in its own grounds in the tiny village of Ancroft, dates from the 1740s and offers a unique escape away from reality - ideal as a holiday home for families or for small group holidays with its huge grassed garden for alfresco dining or family games, plus new for 2014 a 7 person hot tub. There are numerous lanes and footpaths to explore or visit the 11th century church which was later fortified and defended against the cross border raids of the medieval period. Just 5 minutes' drive to the north across the famous bridges is the centre of Berwick Upon Tweed, 10 minutes' drive east are the sandy beaches and links golf course at Goswick or 15 minutes and you could be on the causeway to Holy Island, subject to the safe Holy Island Crossing Times.

Perfect location- rural but very handy for Berwick-upon-Tweed. Nice size - large enough for a big party but felt homely with lots of rooms for relaxing in. Kids loved the games room. Nice big table for meals (and a large jigsaw!). Outside was well looked after (notice previous reviews stated needed work so presumably this has been done). Thanks for a great family holiday - many happy memories

Mrs Corinne L,

Good spacious property for large family gathering
