The Manor House , Shortflatt Tower , Belsay

Historic holiday home in Newcastle-upon-Tyne
For a short time only , enjoy our support bubble discounts with over 50% off some stays . Have exclusive use of one of Northumberland's most beautiful country houses with the 6 ensuite bedrooms and exclusive use of this 10 bedroom house. Shortflatt Tower is one of Northumberland's most beautiful country houses set in idyllic surroundings with well-tended walled gardens and ancient woodland. Set in a private estate, we offer comfortable elegance in an area of natural beauty.
Come and enjoy a taste of gracious country living in the luxurious comfort, elegance, and tranquillity that our 13th century fortalice tower has to offer.
The Tower Keep drawing room has a vaulted ceiling, 6 foot thick walls and an open fire. The Tower Drawing room opens out onto an impressive terrace and attractive gardens. Past and present owners have taken great pride in creating and maintaining the wonderful garden and the grounds around the Tower. The flower borders have been planned to produce colour and blooms throughout the year and there is a beautiful rose quartz fountain.
For a cosier atmosphere, the drawing room offers decorative brilliance with plush sofas and views of the garden. The formal dining room has antique furnishings and a wood burning stove. Opposite to the dining room is the large family AGA kitchen with American fridge freezer, dishwasher and additional dining space.

We have ten beautiful and individually decorated bedrooms with views overlooking the formal gardens and rolling Northumberland countryside. Six of the bedrooms are en suite, two family bathrooms with a bath and rain shower, a ground floor washroom and toilet.
With a variety of areas to stroll or to sit and relax in the garden and parkland, it is a wonderful space to explore. The Ancient tree lined drive is a kilometre long so there is great privacy and uninterrupted views.

If you wish to increase your guestlist, the Tower and Annex (Shortflatt Tower wings) can be combined as one. The adjoining Annex has 5 en-suite bedrooms, kitchen, drawing room and ground floor bathroom. Special deals can be negotiated if you wish to book both the Tower and the Annex, totalling 15 bedrooms sleeping up to 30 people. Additional children’s beds and cots can be provided on request. Please follow the link below to view the Annex.
