Castle Mound, a group of only four stone-built homes, is on an elevated position in Widdrington Village, less than two miles from glorious Druridge Bay. Many rooms have delightful country and coastal views.

The village has an outstanding farm shop and adjoining coffee shop as well as a respected public house and a good range of local services, including a rail link to Newcastle, which is available at Widdrington Station only about a mile down the coast road.

The houses have been designed to blend in with the village architecture and are completed in natural stone with slate roofs and have a number of interesting features.

The homes each have a single garage and block-paved drive.

The ground floor has a large sitting room as well as a family room. The large and well- equipped kitchen can be complemented with granite worktops.

This room also has ample space for a large dining area at one end.

Access to the garage is available through the utility room.

The first floor has four double rooms, the master bedroom having an en suite shower room.

The second bedroom has a dressing area, which could be used as a study area or for other purposes.

Prices start from £375,000. Simon Beeby, of Strutt & Parker, said: "These houses represent excellent value for money as they are exceptionally spacious and well crafted, and it is a rare opportunity to purchase houses of this size and quality so near the coast."
