AN OFF-GRID cottage in a peaceful rural location is on the market.

Haughton Pasture Cottage is surrounded by open fields in our stunning Nothumberland countryside close to the National Park and is one and a half miles from Humshaugh.

It has been listed for sale by Galbraith for £325,000.

The cottage requires complete repair and modernisation, including the installation of mains services and vehicular access.

The cottage has stone walls and the remains of original stone fireplaces.

There is currently a reception room and a timber-framed garden room, as well as a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Sam Gibson, head of residential agency at Galbraith, Hexham, said: “Haughton Pasture Cottage is ideal for the post Covid era - a charming period cottage, located off-grid in a wonderfully isolated and peaceful countryside setting.

“For the right buyer, this property represents the best opportunity to truly get away from it all and create a delightful rural escape. It could be extended or the layout reconfigured, subject to appropriate planning consent and depending on the buyer’s requirements. It also presents an exciting holiday let business as an alternative investment opportunity.”
