Acton Hall Stables sits in 17 acres of glorious Northumberland countryside and is the perfect small estate. At its heart lies the main house, a seven-bedroom contemporary country house which, when it was restored, was awarded a North East Civic Trust award.

The house is perfect for people with an equestrian leaning: there’s a stone stable block, two-storey tack room and 12.5 acres of paddocks.

The sale includes a stretch of fishing for 2 rods extending to approximately 100m of single bank fishing on the “Groves Wood” beat of the productive River Coquet. Being situated less than a mile from Acton Hall Stables means that the owners or their guests are well positioned to enjoy time on the river fishing for salmon, trout and sea trout.

The market towns of Alnwick and Morpeth are just 7 and 12 miles away respectively while Newcastle-upon-Tyne is 28 miles.

The house is being sold through Sale and Partners at a guide price of £2.25m. Contact, 01668 281 611; www.saleandpartners.co.uk
