Until the late Seventies, Capheaton School served the parish and the School House was always occupied by the teacher. Now it has been converted to a holiday let available weekly or for shorter breaks.
With two double bedrooms and a small bunk room, it is a great retreat from the hurly-burly of life. Overlooking Sir Edward’s Lake, it enjoys lovely views and has a large garden and BBQ area.
Guests at the School House are welcome to enjoy walks around the Lake, or come and walk around the gardens at the Hall, providing there are no events (please check at time of booking).
We spent two nights in this lovely house in October. Despite some horrible weather, the cottage was warm and cosy with ample comfortable bedding. The house is well equipped and nished to a good standard making it feel very homely for our short stay. What’s more, the wonderful views out over the lake and it’s quiet, picturesque location made it the perfect base for a relaxed family weekend in Northumberland.

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.

This 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.

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.
