A COUPLE who have owned a popular country farmhouse and guest accomodation for 14 years are selling their property as they move on to their 'next chapter'.

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co are bringing to the market, Bush Nook Farmhouse, stylish country accommodation in Gilsland, Cumbria.

Situated in the heart of Hadrian’s Wall Country and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bush Nook Farmhouse is an ideal spot for large groups seeking a country escape.

Originally an 18th century farmhouse, Bush Nook has now been converted into two separate dwellings, a main house and a barn annex, which are capable of sleeping up to 20 guests.

The property features a large dining area, three outdoor hot tubs and a log fire garden room with stunning panoramic views over the surrounding countryside.

The current owners, Malcom and Jenny Redman, have owned and operated Bush Nook Farmhouse for the last 14 years, and now wish to retire.

Jenny said: “When we first saw Bush Nook in 2009, we really fell in love with the property which was a B&B at that time. We threw ourselves in at the deep end and changed the business model to what we have today, a thriving self-catering business. The location is incredibly beautiful with our guests coming from all over the world to see Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland National Park and the nearby Lake District.

“We’re excited to start our next chapter and pass Bush Nook to new owners, who we know will enjoy the property and business as much as we have.”

Joel Osbourne, Hotel Broker at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “This is a rare opportunity to acquire a property comprising of two separate dwellings which can be combined as either one larger guest house or utilised as separate holiday cottages.

"The views alone are very special, and the tranquillity sets this apart from other opportunities out there. There are several opportunities for a new owner to drive the revenue further, from renovation into a luxurious country rental cottage or to return the property to a generous sized residential dwelling.”
