Belsay Tower is a 13th century, historic country mansion, set within tranquil surroundings and beautifully-kept gardens, it makes the perfect home away from home for those in search of a truly relaxing break. While guests will feel a million miles away from any hustle and bustle, there are a huge variety of interesting and exciting attractions within easy reaching distance, including the wonderful Northumberland coastline and the lively city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Belsay Tower Estate comprises of the Manor House and the Annex Wing and can therefore comfortably accommodate up to thirty guests, for those in smaller groups it is possible to rent these properties individually. With open fires and plush sofas, the living accommodation is spacious and ideal for gatherings consisting of two drawing rooms, a large family AGA kitchen which comes fully equipped with all the tools a budding chef could possibly need as well as a formal dining room complete with antique furniture. The fifteen bedrooms have been individually designed to an incredibly high standard, eleven of the bedrooms boast en-suite facilities, while the remaining three bedrooms share the use of two family bathrooms and an additional washroom.

Outside, there are a variety of areas to explore in the gardens, with plenty of spots to stroll or simply relax. To the rear of the house is an impressive suntrap courtyard which offers a stylish area ideal for a lazy barbecue after an action-packed day spent exploring Northumberland. The Ancient tree lined drive is a kilometre long so there is great privacy and uninterrupted views.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • While one of the bedrooms is situated on the ground floor, due to the fact that this is a 13th century home it is not ideal for those who struggle with stairs or need wheelchair access

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!
