TV Fame For Our Alnwick Branch!



It was exciting times for Pattinson’s Alnwick branch last week when the TV crew from the hit property show ‘Escape to the Country’ filmed one of our listed properties, and interviewed one of our star Valuers, Charlie Jefferson. 

As we eagerly await the official airing date of the popular property search programme, we can offer you a sneak peek into what you can expect to see!   

Presenter Jules Hudson and his film crew spent the day with our Valuer and listing agent, Charlie, as they perused the stunning cottage that she has listed in the idyllic hamlet of Netherton Burnfoot. Charlie was keen to inform them that Alnwick and this beautiful little village in the breathtakingly beautiful Northumberland countryside, is coined as ‘The Secret Kingdom’  

And viewers will see why!


The beautifully presented property boasts over 3 acres of land and is nestled in a gorgeous little rural hamlet with views of the countryside and surrounding woodland.  

Valuer Charlie, perfectly highlighted the numerous benefits of selling at auction, aka ‘Secure Sale Solution.’  As the latter suggests, selling at auction offers a less than 1% fall-through rate which is a phenomenal statistic that few people are aware of!  

At Pattinsons, our secure sale department, ‘Pattinson Auction,’ has over 30 years' of experience selling properties at auction nationwide, facilitated by our impressive portfolio of partner estate agents across the country. We have accumulated over 6.5 million page views per year via our online bidding platform.  

Contrary to widespread belief, auction (Secure Sale) is not just restricted to run-down properties and do-er uppers. In fact, our property listed in Alnwick which appears on the show, is a stunningly presented turn-key cottage, meaning you could move straight away, as it is perfectly pristine.  

During her time on air, Charlie expressed her confidence that the property will sell for beyond the starting bid! It certainly presented a unique angle for the ‘Escape to the Country’ crew, as they confessed that they see very few auction listings during their property searches. The crew were in Northumberland for a week where they filmed four properties including our listing. And although only on camera for a fleeting time, Charlie was an on-screen natural and presented the facts and benefits of listing at auction clearly and effectively!
