Walltown Byre

Overview

Overview

A true one-off, Walltown Byre is an eclectic country retreat that blends cutting-edge design and contemporary art with unabashed fun and a dose of philanthropy. 

Sabina Forwood, the owner of the 17th-century Walltown Byre, set in 700 acres of rolling Northumberland countryside, does not do beige. As she says: “Life is colour. Colour is life – it’s everything. Colour is evocative; it’s sexy; it makes you think." So, if you like your interiors bland, look away now.

Despite such striking interiors, one’s gaze is always drawn back to the sweeping countryside views afforded by the byre’s large windows. Soak up the verdant beauty of Roman wall country from the dining table or kitchen bar, from the comfort of your bed or - our favourite - from the bubbling embrace of the outdoor hot tub on the patio to the front of the property.

Three suitably quirky en-suite bedrooms lead off from the main living space while a separate wing houses an impressive cinema and games room, where natural light from arrow slit windows is complemented by bespoke chromatic lighting. Complete with a ping-pong table and piano, this is the spot for big kids of all ages to kick back and indulge in serious games and screen time. Although, given that guests can stream films from iPlayer, Amazon, Netflix and YouTube, family debates about what to watch on the huge cinema screen are inevitable...

Surrounded by footpaths and bridleways, big skies and wonderful views, the area has plenty to offer those seeking dramatic ridges and panoramic views.
