BE THE KING OR QUEEN OF THE TOWER
Tucked away in the clouds…These rooms both have en-suite shower rooms with state of the art facilities. Both rooms are beautifully framed by exposed 13th century wooden beams. Skylight windows in each room create a feeling of light and space.
Situated at the very top of the tower this room offers you unique opportunity to step out onto a secure area of the rooftop with breath taking views of the rolling fields and woodland which make up this picturesque Northumberland landscape.
On a clear day you can see the Belsay Castle and grounds in the distance. Below you is the walled garden and beautiful quartz stone fountain – especially spectacular when light up at night.
From the skylights of this room, you have a direct view of the tower crenulations and the woodland around the building.
PRETTY NELL - MASTER BEDROOM
The most spacious and lavish room in the tower, Pretty Nell gives the feeling of true grandeur. A super king sized bed adorned with the softest white Egyptian cotton bedding. Other comforts include a luxurious velvet, crimson couch and foot stool, an extra large flat screen TV and walk in wardrobe.
To the east you can look out of a glass window crafted to fit the original tower arrow slit with striking views of the estate’s grounds and woodland.
The master bathroom has a free standing double ended roll top bath and separate shower room.
With a chaise lounge and comfortable armchair, exposed 13th century beams and skylight views of the Tower, this is a truly luxurious room to spend time in.
MISS GLEN DYNE
Situated in the Tower next to the master bedroom, miss Glen Dyne has a tranquil calm feel, with golden fabrics and a wonderful view of the west lawn.
From this room you can enjoy views of the wonderfully maintained west lawn and flower borders.
Situated next to the Tower sitting room, the antique furniture beautifully compliments the rich, deep reds and greens detailed on the floral design of the fabric used for the curtains and beds.
As a focal point to this room, there is a striking white marble and cast-iron fireplace. It also has views of the west lawn, flower borders and 19th century stone garden walls.
The above rooms are all in the original Tower and have four foot thick walls. This means that there are beautiful walk in window reveals. Where possible we have provided a comfortable chair so you can relax and read a book or simply enjoy the view.
BIT OF FASHION
Situated at the top of the main staircase. This is a beautiful bright airy room. As you enter, you are welcomed with gentle pinks and purples, maroons and the odd touch of red in the elegant swirling designs adorning the fabrics of the curtains and upholstery.
