Capheaton Hall

Steeped in history and set in glorious Northumberland countryside, Capheaton Hall is a unique place to stay and is open for guests to enjoy and explore for the first time in its history. Dating back to 1668 and a much treasured family home, Capheaton offers a sublime bed and breakfast experience - comfort, luxury and elegance surrounded by a magnificent park, tranquil gardens, woodland walks and a large lake frequented by a wealth of wild fowl. And yet, within easy access of Newcastle and the breathtaking coastline of Northumberland, studded with castles and wonderful walks.

After extensive refurbishment and redecoration this luxury self-catering holiday accommodation offers ample space for families and groups of up to 8. Pets are welcome too.

Your Hosts

The Swinburne family have played an important role in this area of Northumberland since the 12th Century. Eliza and Will Browne-Swinburne took over Capheaton in 2008 and set about renovations to open this fascinating home to guests. With a young family, Will still travels to London for part of the week, whilst Eliza presides over a magnificent vegetable garden, luxuriant greenhouses producing a selection of wonderful summer fruits and a selection of animals - dogs, chickens, pigs and ponies.

Capheaton Hall: Homestays - Gallery


  • The ground floor has a large, high ceiling drawing room with an open fire and big windows overlooking the front park.  A large TV with a selection of DVD’s and family games are available.  The dining room can seat up to 10 people comfortably and there are plenty of glasses and tableware for more.   This room also looks out across the landscaped park.  The newly fitted kitchen has a fridge/freezer, hob, oven and microwave with plenty of working space and a large kitchen table for breakfast.  There is also a  utility room, off the hall, with a washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing facilities and lots of extra space for wet coats and wellies.
  • Two separate staircases take you up to the first floor where there are  two master bedrooms both with superking beds and ensuite bathrooms and further down the corridor are two twin bedrooms which share a huge bathroom with a rolltop bath and a handheld shower (while lying in the bath you have the most wonderful view over fields and woods– but there is a blind should you wish to be more discreet).
  • All the beds are made up with fine cotton sheets and feather and duck down pillows and duvet covers with extra blankets should you need them.
  • Enough logs are provided for the week but should you require more we charge £15 for an extra load.
  • In the front of the house there is a terrace with a large table, BBQ, ample lawn, garden and uninterrupted views over the landscaped park.  (There is a shallow rectangular pond in front of the house and a sunk fence (a Ha Ha) with a 5ft drop so it is important to keep a close eye on small children.)
  • We have a truly wonderful working kitchen garden and on arrival you will be given a hamper of whatever fruit, vegetables and herbs are available and you are more than welcome to walk around the kitchen garden.  The tennis court is situated just 50m from the West Wing inside the walled garden and can be used throughout the year.
  • We encourage families to bring bicycles as we have an excellent drive for children’s biking and Northumberland has some of the best cycling routes (due to, I believe, fewer cars!)
  • There are woods to play in and Sir Edwards Lake is over 30 acres and has wonderful trout fishing from the boat.  Guests are most welcome to fish at extra cost but otherwise can simply enjoy a picnic or walk around the lake. Those interested in ornithology will enjoy watching a great range of wildfowl and marshland birds.

Food and Drink

The West Wing is a self-catering property. However, on arrival, you will be given a hamper of whatever fruit, vegetables and herbs are available.

Northumberland is a magical county filled with ancient castles, beautiful and historic gardens, golden sand beaches, rolling hills, rugged moorland and friendly little market towns. Northumberland is also home to England’s most tranquil and inspiring National Park. There are also two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty waiting to be discovered, the Northumberland Coast and the North Pennines.

With luxury bed and breakfasts in exclusive farmhouses and historic homes, Northumberland is home to the majority of the remaining sections of Hadrian’s Wall and five of the eight excavated forts, including Housesteads and Vindolanda. The county is also home to many miles of paths which often provide spectacular views over a landscape largely unchanged since the days of the Roman legions. Northumberland is all about big skies and breathtaking countryside. It is also the gateway to the Scottish Borders.

Capheaton Hall is perfectly located to explore the delights that Northumberland has to offer, as well as being within easy travelling distance of Newcastle upon Tyne where the acclaimed Northern Sinfonia performs regular classical concerts at the new Sage building.
