Coldmartin Farmhouse, Wooler, NE71 6QN





Coldmartin Farmhouse is an extremely attractive traditional stone property, set over two principal floors, with breathtaking uninterrupted views over the North Northumberland National Park and the Cheviot Hills. The property, built circa 1870, is set in a small development of farm buildings perched high above the popular market town of Wooler. Beautifully renovated to a high standard by the current owner, many of the building’s period features have been retained or enhanced. Coldmartin would make a wonderful family home with its comfortable and spacious accommodation. The property consists of entrance vestibule, functional utility room, four reception rooms, three double bedrooms with master en-suite, family bathroom, WC, larder storage/boiler room. Outside there is a large workshop (also accessed off utility), stable with storage shed off potential garage space, plenty of other storage sheds, summerhouse, beautiful garden grounds with herbaceous borders, shrubs and mature trees, and a one acre “L” shaped paddock that wraps around the front of the house. Features of interest within this property include the overall warmth and character, attractive stone vestibules to the front and rear, original beams and the multi-fuel stove set within a beautiful open fireplace. Coldmartin Farmhouse is a special place, with most of the internal accommodation drinking in the exceptional views of the gardens and North Northumberland hills beyond.

Area Insights

Coldmartin Farmhouse is a particularly beautiful family home, perched high above Wooler within a small farm development, overlooking un-spoilt breath-taking south facing views of the Cheviot Hills. 


The small and popular market town of Wooler, known as the ‘Gateway to the Cheviots’, was listed in the Sunday Times ‘best places to live’ list. Wooler is situated in one of the more sparsely populated areas in England, however Edinburgh to the north and Newcastle to the south are still easily accessible. Berwick East coast mainline train station is only eighteen miles away, with its extremely low crime rate, vibrant community spirit, down to earth friendly people, fantastic shops and local services, all on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, it is easy to see why Wooler is so popular amongst tourists and residents. Excellent local amenities include Cheviot Farm Bakery, TR Johnson Butcher, The Good Life Deli, The Chocolate Box, The Co-op Supermarket and numerous eateries including the Milan Restaurant, The Percy Arms in Chatton and the local Tankerville Arms. Schools include Glendale Middle School and Wooler First School, both have excellent reputations. Furthermore Wooler has numerous sporting activities to suit everyone (netball, pilates, yoga, football, badminton, golf), an art group, and it also offers an abundance of cycling, walking, wildlife, riding and birdwatching. 

The surrounding area of Wooler is steeped in history with Bronze and Iron Age sites and the haunted Chillingham Castle. Wooler is also within easy reach of the wonderful Berwickshire and Northumbrian east coasts, with seaside towns such as Craster (renowed worldwide for its kippers), Bamburgh and Seahouses with their incredible unspoilt beaches, historical buildings and beautiful landscapes. The ancient Border towns of Coldstream, Kelso and Melrose are within easy reach. The historical town of Alnwick with its famous gardens, fountains and castle (as featured in Harry Potter) is only eighteen miles away. Country and sporting pursuits are also readily available in the nearby area, including hill walking, salmon and trout fishing, riding, hunting and shooting. There are plenty of excellent golf courses available relatively locally, such as: Wooler, Bamburgh, Alnwick, Seahouses, Berwick, Goswick, Eyemouth and the Hirsel.


A few miles to the northeast is the popular market town of Berwick-upon-Tweed. It is famous for its stunning architecture, has a wide selection of amenities and is well serviced with local and national shops, five national supermarkets and schooling for all ages including a private school at Longridge Towers. Berwick also has a selection of leisure and sports clubs, banks, public houses, restaurants and The Malting theatre and cinema that offers daily shows and movies. There is a main line railway station that has regular trains to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London. Both Edinburgh and Newcastle are under one hour in travel time and London in circa three hours forty-five minutes. There is also the A1 trunk road that bypasses the town and provides easy access both north and south respectively.

The attractive town of Morpeth can be found just thirty-one miles to the south and offers a first-class range of shopping, leisure facilities, healthcare, and schooling. There are excellent rail links to Newcastle, the North and the South. Newcastle-upon-Tyne lies forty-seven miles south and delivers everything you’d want from a busy vibrant city.


Coldmartin Farmhouse is remarkably well positioned to access the Scottish Borders, Edinburgh to the North, Newcastle to the South, and Newcastle International Airport is less than an hour away.
