Perfectly located midway between Alnwick and Bamburgh and close to Northumberland's Heritage Coast, Brunton House is a splendid, stone-built, traditional Northumbrian country house only two miles across fields from the beach. Completed by Easter 2013, it has
undergone a top quality top-to-toe refurbishment to create a luxury self-catering holiday house suitable for large groups.
The extensive renovations to the house have been carefully designed with large groups in mind, making the house ideally suited for memorable family get-togethers, special occasions
and sporting parties. There is fabulous entertaining space, including a dining room seating 16, an elegant drawing room, and an atmospheric hall ideal for pre-dinner drinks or playing games,
in addition to a games room and snug / TV room for guests to play pool or table football, find a quiet spot to work, curl up with a film, or relax with a good book.
The elegant interior of Brunton House is light, bright and incredibly spacious. Superb designer fabrics ensure each room has its own individual charm, with a seamless fusion of classic
antique and contemporary items, original artworks, quirky objets d'art, and an extensive library of books dotted around the house. All mod-cons are provided, including good Wi-Fi throughout
the house, i-docks, a large TV with Sky in the snug, and additional TVs with Freeview and built-in DVD players in the drawing room and every bedroom. Eight individually-designed bedrooms
and seven luxurious bathrooms provide superb boutique-hotel-style sleeping accommodation.
The estate is well set up to cater for family and group bookings.
Brunton and the Fallodon Estate
The house is set within its own private and beautifully-maintained mature gardens on an organic farm in the middle of the 2,500 acre Fallodon Estate, between Alnwick and Bamburgh, on the
edge of the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
The estate is the former home of Prime Minister Charles Grey and Foreign Secretary and ornithologist Sir Edward Grey, and has an impressive history. Guests are welcome to make use of the
estate, which boasts an abundance of wildlife, including red squirrels, deer, otters, and a variety of birdlife. The estate provides fabulous walks, excellent cycling on quiet roads, and fishing on
a stocked trout lake. Guests can bring their own horses to ride on the many bridle paths and the beaches. The original stables are behind Brunton House and paddocks are available close by.
For larger groups wishing to holiday together and maintain a higher degree of privacy, Stable Cottage (sleeps 6), Mill Race (sleeps 4) and Brunton Burn (sleeps 2) are also available to let nearby.
