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.
