Capheaton Hall provides luxury holiday accommodation in the heart of Northumberland.
Capheaton is a small rural community in the heart of Northumberland. At its core is Capheaton Hall, the seat of the Swinburne family since 1260 and still our home today. Cleverly, we have survived being on the wrong side of most conflicts since then, including the Wars of the Roses, the Civil War, the 1715 Jacobite Rebellion and the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion.
Capheaton is a place for people to come and enjoy the very best of Northumberland. It is unbelievably tranquil, old-fashioned and relaxed. Staying here is a chance to make this wonderful place yours and indulge in gentleness, serenity and relaxation. At Capheaton, you are not just visiting a lovely old Estate, you are becoming part of a small but rich and vibrant rural community and we do hope you love it as much as we do.
This is Capheaton
Capheaton offers space. Space to think, relax and enjoy. With our accommodation, we can cater for families and couples. The house itself offers a range of possibilities in terms of internal space for parties, weddings and corporate events. All within the context of a living, working and traditional Northumbrian Estate.
We had a marvellous time and really enjoyed our stay. The area was so peaceful and everyone was so hospitable. And you were very accommodating with the booking. Please give our best wishes and thanks to Jane the Gardener who shared lots of information and also very tasty vegetables and fruit with us. Wish all of you all the best and thank you again.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home, grounds, garden, woodland and lake - Wow! Most of all thank you for your hospitality and time. We have loved our stay at The West Wing and we have created special memories for our family. Time together is precious and joyful. The family ranges from 3-87 and we all had a wonderful time.

Capheaton was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. It was intimate, elegant and relaxed, which helped us and our guests have a really great time. Thank you very much to everyone at Capheaton, especially Louise and Eliza, for your help with everything, and we would highly recommend Capheaton to anyone looking for a unique venue for their wedding day.

Our stay at The West Wing, Capheaton Hall is one of my best vacations in 76 years. We travelled over 4000 miles from Florida, USA, to this idyllic magnificent estate. Willy and Eliza are most exceptional hosts/owners. The rolling beautiful countryside is peppered with castles, cathedrals, history, and everywhere we toured, ate, and visited we were greeted by the most sociable and caring people. What an honor it was to be able to slip back in time to Capheaton Hall and this historical part of the world and have the feeling of belonging.
Gwen and David - August 2019
A delightful place with delightful people. The West Wing has been carefully restored and is a cosy and comfortable hideaway. Both Jane and Louise were wonderful to speak to and our tour of the garden was a truly memorable treat. Thank you.
We too, explored the countryside and took long walks but it is Capheaton Hall which will stay in our hearts, thanks to Willy and Eliza.

This is our 4th visit to The West Wing and we've had the most wonderful week. The kids have loved all the cycling and the freedom and playing with Peggy. We love it here, thank you Eliza and Will.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the entire Capheaton team (Louise, Eliza, Willy, Jane, Fergus and everyone else) for being so welcoming and supportive throughout the entire wedding process up until the post-wedding day! We had the most magical day and wish we could do it all again. Louise is the most patient and kindest soul who was so patient and helpful with her advice. She always had a solution to things that seemed impossible, and we are just thankful that we had such support! What more do you want, a fantastic venue with the best team to work with. Thank you once again!
Mr and Mrs W - August 2019
There was a good amount of meetings before the wedding which meant we felt organised and on top of things. On the day Louise and Anna were always there to check things were getting done and we were where we were meant to be.
I would definitely recommend a wedding at Capheaton Hall. The setting is perfect and you receive so much help from the wedding coordinators that you feel totally calm and well organised. On the day they are fantastic at keeping you right and they go out of their way to help.

The School House is a beautiful house to stay in. Very Cosy with the log burners on and nice thick curtains. The kitchen was well equipped and clean. Lovely views out over the countryside from all rooms.
Helen - January 2020
The School House is an amazing property, beautiful location, beautiful house and immaculate and certainly exceeded our expectations. Very much in keeping with the photographs. Information from Tom was extremely helpful. We would certainly stay there again.
Christine - December 2019
We spent two nights in the lovely School House in October. Despite some horrible weather, the cottage was warm and cosy with ample comfortable bedding. The house is well equipped and finished to a good standard making it feel very homely for our short stay. What's more, the wonderful views out over the Lake, and its quiet, picturesque location made it the perfect base for a relaxed family weekend in Northumberland.
Dorothy - October 2019
What a great stay. Thought the communication was great up front, the property was exactly as advertised, everything was spotless and the house was extremely comfortable. Would recommend to others. And a bottle of wine and a cake on arrival - very thoughtful.
