The West Wing is a family house consisting of two double rooms with ensuite bathrooms, and two twin rooms sharing a bathroom. Ideal for a family holiday, it is available as a weekly let or in non-peak times for shorter breaks.
Anyone staying can enjoy the kitchen garden and produce from it. For those who love gardens, it is worth spending some time talking to Jane Armstrong, our brilliantly talented gardener who will explain all that is going on in the greenhouses, borders and vegetable beds.
There is a tennis court, croquet lawn and endless different walks. The drive around the House and North Front is ideal for bicycling, skateboarding and rollerblading.
For the ornithologist, there is Sir Edward’s Lake, a short walk from the house which abounds with dozens of species of wildfowl and wading birds.
The West Wing is a well-placed base from which to explore the other treasures Northumberland has to offer. Within an hour’s drive of the best of the Northumberland coast, the Cheviots and the Rothbury Hills, we sit at the centre of Northumberland. The Roman Wall is within half an hour and the small roads around make Capheaton a cycling mecca for those who love to don the lycra!
A beautiful place to stay. The grounds are idyllic. The children enjoyed playing and making a den in the wood. The tearoom was great for a group with children. We are local but felt far from the city. A lovely way to spend a weekend!

Perfect for a group of friends or large family. We loved our stay in the West Wing and can’t wait to come again. Kitchen was super well equipped. Loved the log fire and beautiful sunrises in the mornings.

The west wing at Capheaton, what a fabulous place, so much bigger than expected and just perfect for our group of various ages. We thought the property was great. There was a slight issue with one of the showers which was dealt with very quickly but otherwise no other problems. Would definitely stay again!

A wonderful week of sunshine exploring the Northumberland coast and castles, and enjoying the magnificent gardens and views at Capheaton. We’ve had a very comfortable stay and will be back.
CL – August 2022
A magnificent time creating and re-kindling wonderful memories of Northumberland. Day trips to Bamburgh and Warkworth, Alnwick well worth a visit – but the kitchen garden, grounds, tennis court and sunset at the Lake were the absolute highlights.
SW – August 2022
Fabulous time! Amazing house and gardens – we could have quite happily spent all day here and not ventured out. Corbridge and Alnwick great trips. Hadrian’s Wall and stargazing fab – so much to do – we ran out of time – will have to return!

Everyone has been so lovely and welcoming. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. Endless exploring for the dogs and us and all in a gorgeous setting. Thank you also to the lovely ladies in the walled garden (apologies for not asking their names) for the ‘bunny tails’ plant. Thoroughly loved our stay and we will be back!

Capheaton Hall is stunning. The West Wing is grand but homely and the garden and grounds are spectacular. Fresh garden produce from the magnificent walled garden was a real treat. Willy and Eliza were delightful hosts and their dogs are gorgeous!
SK - July 2021
We can't recommend this beautiful place highly enough. The house is lovely, the setting spectacular. The garden was stunning, in full bloom and highly scented. The views from the terrace (and some rooms indoors) are amazing, you would never get tired of drinking them in. The estate is lovely to wander around - they are rightly proud of the wonderful walled garden, but there are also woods, a folly, a lake and a tennis court. William and Eliza were very attentive and friendly hosts, but relaxed and never intrusive, and Louise was also extremely helpful. The resident dogs also provided bonus entertainment for the children! We can't wait to come back.
