About the property


Shortflatt Tower is one of Northumberland's most beautiful country houses set in idyllic surroundings with well tended walled gardens and ancient woodland. Part of a private estate, we offer comfortable elegance and bespoke services including quality pampering in Fullerton Place, our Spa and Hammam. Come and enjoy a taste of gracious country living in the luxurious comfort and tranquillity that our 13th century fortalice tower has to offer. With a variety of areas to stroll or to sit and relax in the garden and parkland, it's a wonderful space to explore. Balancing tranquil surroundings with energy and vitality, Shortflatt has an exceptionally calm and relaxing atmosphere. We are surrounded by beautiful countryside, excellent walking opportunities, great cycle routes and both National trust and English Heritage properties. We are also within short driving distance of Newcastle upon Tyne city centre's excellent shopping facilities and quayside galleries and Northumberland's stunning golden beaches and interesting market towns.
