Coquet Park Offers A Residential Paradise In The Heart Of Northumberland

Issue 29

Northumberland is famous for its unspoilt beauty and thanks to house builder Bellway you can now have your own fair share of that beauty at their latest development, Coquet Park in the traditional village of Felton.

“We have some absolutely stunning homes availed at Coquet Park,” said Bellway’s sales manager Alex Philipson. “Visitors to the development can view two exciting and contemporary designed show homes which really illustrate the living standards that buyers can enjoy here.

There is a selection of homes available which offer a range of floor plans to suit a variety of family needs which start in price from £229,995.” Bellway’s four bedroom Arcacia showhome offers a very generous 1,550 sq ft of living space. The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with downstairs WC, the front facing living room measures 15′ 5″ x 11′ 6″, the kitchen and family area run the full width of the property and enjoy French doors to the rear garden making this a very light and airy family room. The first floor provides four good size double bedrooms with the master bedroom and bedroom one benefitting from ensuite facilities, the remaining two bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. “You can enjoy the Northumberland scenery but at the same time you are only 10 miles from the market town of Alnwick in the north and Newcastle is around a thirty five minute drive,” said Alex. “The nearest train station is Alnmouth, around nine miles away, from where regular services operate to Berwick, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Durham and south to London Kings Cross. Locally, buses link Felton with surrounding villages, as well as with Alnwick, Morpeth and Newcastle which is really handy for school children.” Externally, all the homes have gardens and garages, or parking. The development itself encompasses areas of open space for the enjoyment of residents and their families.

Day-to-day essentials can be purchased at the village store, while the Running Fox artisan bakery sells a variety of handmade breads and cakes, as well as offering breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea in the adjoining coffee shop. The village also has a traditional pub: the Northumberland Arms bar and restaurant is a former coaching inn next to the River Coquet, which serves a range of dishes prepared with locally sourced ingredients. For families, the village school, Felton CE Primary School, caters for young children, while for older students, schools include The Duchess’s Community High School in Alnwick and The King Edward VI School in Morpeth. Buyers with a home to sell can take advantage of Bellway’s Express Mover service, where Bellway will manage the sale of your old home free of charge, alternatively Bellway may be able to arrange part exchange arrangements on your old home. Buyers can also take advantage of the Government’s Help to Buy scheme which only requires a five percent deposit and enables the buyer to take advantage of a five year twenty percent interest free loan which reduces mortgage repayments during the first five years of ownership.
