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 Billiard Room (deposit required), 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. Fly fishing is available at an extra cost on what is arguably one of the best still water brown trout fisheries in England.
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!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home, grounds, garden, woodland and lakes - wow! Most of all thank you for your hospitality and time. We have loved our stay and we have created special memories for our family. Time together is precious and joyful. The family ranges from age 3 to 87 and we all had a wonderful time.

We had the most wonderful, relaxing and tranquil time here. We spent more time at The West Wing than we did exploring the area and returning to old haunts. We cannot envisage not returning.

I enjoyed the West Wing, it's beautifully relaxing and I also enjoyed the Lake and garden very beautiful. Hope we can come back soon - thank you for having us.
