A superb lifestyle and business opportunity of this kind very rarely comes to the market, providing an approximate gross return of around 10% and being well established in a unique country setting with excellent repeat custom, yet offering huge potential to develop further if required.
The five holiday cottages are traditionally stone built with their own gardens and have been sensitively positioned around the courtyard. This pretty development of attractive properties has been constructed to meet a high standard of architectural design and workmanship and very much in keeping with the country theme.
Unusually, no holiday occupancy restrictions apply to these cottages so they could, if desired, eventually be sold separately for owner occupation.
All the cottages are accredited by Visit England as a 5 Star Gold self-catering accommodation venue, benefitting from a wealth of opportunities to relax in style or explore the idyllic surrounds.
This charming selection of properties includes a romantic cottage, perfect for a couple, complete with a relaxing hydrotherapy bath tub for the ultimate in luxury. Three of the cottages offer ideal accommodation for up to four persons and all have the most wonderful country views across the Cheviot foothills.
The largest cottage sleeps up to six persons and is built in the style of an old Northumbrian farmstead. This beautifully appointed property was chosen by Visit Britain to set the example for its nationwide quality assessment scheme.
All the properties are built to exacting standards; the internal finishes are exquisite with high quality fixtures, fittings and soft furnishings throughout all following a country theme, offering customers a touch of luxury whilst being sympathetic to the countryside surroundings.
Each of the cottages has private outdoor space and there is ample individual parking.

The Courtyard is located in the Cheviot foothills and Northumberland National Park in the tranquil Breamish Valley, beyond the village of Powburn and conveniently close to Alnwick. Reputedly one of the most important archaeological landscapes in the country with wide open moorland and tumbling waterfalls and ideally placed for exploring the rolling countryside and the north east coastal areas. Northumberland National Park is recognised as being one of England's least densely populated and most tranquil areas, offering more than 700 miles of footpaths and rights of way whereby you can walk, horse-ride or cycle in complete peace; extending just south of Hadrian's Wall to the River Glen Valley, north-west of Wooler towards the Scottish Border in the north.
The attractive local market towns of Wooler and Alnwick provide a range of day-to-day amenities, including shops, restaurants, cafes, public houses, health centres and library. There are abundant opportunities for sports and leisure enthusiasts, with golf clubs set in spectacular scenery and a range of further sporting clubs including cricket, angling, shooting, cycling and running. Both Morpeth and Berwick-upon-Tweed are within easy reach and provide further comprehensive cultural, educational, recreational and shopping facilities.
