For a cosier atmosphere, the drawing room offers decorative brilliance with plush sofas and views of the garden. The formal dining room has antique furnishings and a wood burning stove. Opposite to the dining room is the large family AGA kitchen with American fridge freezer, dishwasher and additional dining space. We have ten beautiful and individually decorated bedrooms with views overlooking the formal gardens and rolling Northumberland countryside. Six of the bedrooms are en suite, two family bathrooms with a bath and rain shower, a ground floor washroom and toilet. With a variety of areas to stroll or to sit and relax in the garden and parkland, it is a wonderful space to explore. The Ancient tree lined drive is a kilometre long so there is great privacy and uninterrupted views.

The adjoining Annex has 5 en-suite bedrooms, kitchen, drawing room and ground floor bathroom.
