About the property
Peacefully tucked away into a quiet corner off the village green, ‘Cobblers End’ offers much more spacious accommodation than first impressions imply. The interior provides a flexible layout with bedroom and bathroom facilities on both levels. The accommodation offers a good blend of traditional features and modern fittings including exposed ceiling beams, an open coal fire and modern bathroom fittings. The outlooks to the south take in the Cheviots in the distance whilst the gardens enjoy excellent privacy and are nicely established.
Swinton is a popular village with a traditional Village Green and local amenities include Primary School, play park, garage, builders, hotel restaurant and a church.
