These light and airy properties are set between the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland Coast on the edge of the National Park. Milfield Hill Steading stands in an elevated position; once part of a large country estate dating back to the 1750s, it was owned by the Grey family until 1967 and was the birthplace of the social reformer Josephine Butler. There are the medieval ruins of Etal and Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Alnwick Castles, Holy Island and the Farne Islands to explore.
