Property Description


On behalf of The Northumberland Estates, Bradley Hall and Turvey Westgarth are delighted to bring to the market this excellent residential development site at Longbank Farm, Longhoughton, Northumberland. 


The site is located in a rural setting between Longhoughton and Boulmer. Longhoughton is an attractive village in the north of Northumberland, approximately 4.5 miles north east of Alnwick, approximately 1.5 miles north west of Boulmer and 4 miles south east of Alnmouth.

The property is situated on a main route that links Lesbury with Longhoughton and Embleton. A variety of local amenities are available within Longhoughton with the nearest supermarket situated in Alnwick. The nearest schools are Longhoughton Primary School (Ofsted: Good) and The Duchess’s Community High School (Ofsted: Good).

Longhoughton is 2.5 miles north of Alnmouth Train Station which is on the main route from Edinburgh to London via Newcastle city centre. There are also a number of bus stops which provide access to Alnwick and the surrounding areas. 


The steading incorporates an attractive 4 bedroom farmhouse along with a variety of additional buildings including two cottages (to be sold subject to tenancy), stone-built barns and modern farm storage buildings.  

The farmhouse and surrounding steading would make a wonderful family home and also create additional residential dwellings within the wider steading. Various options are available and we believe it could deliver up to 13 residential dwellings subject to planning permission.

The total site extends to 1.38 hectares (3.41 acres).


Interested parties should make their own enquiries with Northumberland County Council’s planning team on 0345 600 6400.


The farm house has an EPC Rating of F34.


The property is sold subject to restrictive covenants permitting the site to be sold for residential or holiday use only. No flats, shops, carrying out of any trade, business, or place of manufacture, no sales of alcohol, beer house or distillery will be acceptable.
Any alterations to the existing buildings and designs will require the estates approval.
