The Shooting Box is a former 18th Century Shooting Lodge, with parts dating back to the 16th Century, located in a beautiful elevated position, tucked well away from the road, in the picturesque village of Edmundbyers. The magnificent and substantially extended stone built country house enjoys stunning open aspect rural views, with beautiful formal gardens, mature orchards and a one acre paddock, as well as a separate two bedroom detached Coach House, ideal for extended family, holiday or residential letting. The period house has retained beautiful traditional features including shutters to the windows, original internal doors, decorative ceiling coving and has been sympathetically refurbished with a high quality internal finish throughout. The two bedroom Coach House provides excellent additional accommodation, with great potential to provide a regular income stream.

There are mature planted borders, a productive orchard with a variety of pear, plum and apple trees, leading to manicured lawns with mature trees and shrubs. There are a number of stone terrace seating areas positioned within the garden, ideal for outside entertaining, and to the front of the Coach House there is an enclosed gravelled garden and further lawned garden and orchard to the rear. A gate opens from the garden to the one acre paddock, which benefits from a field shelter.
Edmundbyers is a traditional village on the Northumberland / County Durham border, just a few miles from the attractive market towns of Corbridge and Hexham. The village offers a variety of local amenities including a village shop and a public house that serves excellent food, all set in stunning surroundings with a network of local walks and other country pursuits. There is a First School in Whittonstall and Senior schooling in Hexham, with Mowden Hall Preparatory School, just outside Corbridge, providing private education from nursery up to 13 years.
Edmundbyers and the surrounding moorland has recently been featured in the popular TV series ‘Vera’ and the nearby Derwent Reservoir was the main setting for the film ‘Beowulf’. The village has a real community feeling with an active Church and Village hall, with lots of social events including the Summer solstice, St. David’s Day and summer barbecues, with regular wine tasting evenings, coffee mornings and a variety of art classes and crafts as well as Pilates and line dancing.
