Set within the beautiful countryside of Northumberland near Scotland, the Butterchurn is an ideal location to explore the Scottish borders and the attractions of Northumbria, including Hadrian’s Wall and the Northumberland Coastline.



Butterchurn Guest House is a large and spacious stone built property that offers excellent year-round accommodation, boasting eight very well presented en suite rooms, a breakfast/dining room and guest lounge area. Externally there are nine parking spaces and a large, well-kept rear garden with a small summerhouse. Additionally, the first floor houses an extensive four bedroom owner’s accommodation, making the business an ideal lifestyle opportunity. 

Neighbouring the popular wedding venue, Le Petit Chateau and situated nearby several other popular venues, Butterchurn Guest House is utilised as overflow accommodation for wedding guests. Currently offering tea and coffee throughout the day, there is scope to introduce a food offering to the well established and profitable business.

Current owners, Keith & Val Anderson comment, “We have thoroughly enjoyed our time running the guest house and it was a fantastic place to bring up our children. We’d love to see the business go to somebody who can take it to the next level and capitalise on the opportunities.”

David Cash, Senior Agent at Christie & Co’s Newcastle office is handling the sale and comments, “Mr & Mrs Anderson have owned and operated the Butterchurn for over 20 years and seek to retire after a thoroughly enjoyable career in the hospitality industry. Given the popularity of wedding businesses nearby, as well as the rise of the staycation, this established business still has significant room for growth.”

Butterchurn Guest House is on the market with a freehold asking price of £425,000.
