New Heaton and Stickle Heaton Farms are located in north Northumberland in the heart of the Tweed Valley, an area acclaimed both for the quality of its land and its stunning scenery.
Both farms enjoy considerable privacy, yet are readily accessible being served by two minor public roads, one of which terminates adjacent to the main New Heaton farm steading.
Both the A697 and A698 pass within two miles of the property and the farms are within easy reach of A1 trunk road (11 miles), the main London- Edinburgh east coast railway line station at Berwick-upon-Tweed (11 miles) and the international airports of Newcastle (60 miles) and Edinburgh (60 miles).
Cornhill-on-Tweed provides excellent local services which include the Collingwood Arms Hotel, a farm machinery dealership and a thriving village shop, whilst the larger settlements of Berwick, Coldstream and Kelso afford a broader range of facilities.
There is a good choice of schools for all age groups in the immediate area together with private schools at Longridge Towers, Berwick and St Mary’s in Melrose. Local livestock markets include Wooler (12 miles) and St Boswells (24 miles) and the farming community is well served by numerous local grain and machinery merchants.
Northumberland and the Scottish Borders is an essentially rural community which offers a first class quality of life within an area that remains delightfully unspoilt and The Heatons are well placed to enjoy all the recreational and sporting opportunities for which the area is justifiably renowned. There are several excellent local golf courses, quality riding and walking throughout the area, national hunt racing and curling at Kelso and first class opportunities for those interested in field sports.
