A magnificent repurposed stable block and coach house on the Nunnykirk Estate, close to the attractive towns of Rothbury and Morpeth.
A wow-factor holiday home with a fascinating pedigree
Beeswing House, a grand former stable block named after an illustrious former resident - a racing wonder-filly bred by William Orde of Nunnykirk in 1833, winning a staggering 51 of her 64 races - has been painstakingly remodelled while preserving the architectural features, resulting in bags of space and wow-factor by the bucket. Decorated with sumptuous furnishings and fabrics, cosy tweeds in calming colours and family antiques, Beeswing House has plenty of creature comforts, including underfloor heating and superfast Wi-Fi.
Flooded with light, courtesy of the arched windows and lofty ceilings, the cavernous open-plan living and dining area is complemented by a large kitchen with dining table and island unit, a snug with wood burning stove, 40” TV, Freeview and DVDs, and two of the four double bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom on the ground floor. Upstairs you’ll find two en suite bedrooms and a mezzanine study area halfway up the stairs, furnished with armchair and desk.
Outside there are two distinct spaces, a courtyard with the original well and a lawned garden with alfresco dining terrace. The adjacent games barn is set up for ping pong and badminton – or even indoor football, a very handy space for energetic youngsters should the weather be inclement.
Located along the drive to Nunnykirk Hall, Beeswing House enjoys a peaceful setting between the rural Northumberland villages of Wallington and Cragside, with nearby Rothbury home to an excellent delicatessen and butcher. There are fantastic walks in the area, which is home to several foodie festivals and events, and Cragside, a nearby stately home with a busy events schedule and many family friendly activities. The Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park, famed for its ‘Dark Skies’, are easily accessible from Beeswing House.
