Grade II* listed Borders mansion, Netherby Hall has completed the refurbishment of its stables, coach houses and cottages to reveal a stunning suite of luxury holiday boltholes right in the heart of the Cumbrian countryside.

Situated within the 36-acre estate parklands with magnificent views of the Scottish hills beyond, the nine luxury cottages and suites, which include a gatehouse and Gardeners Cottage are set in the grounds, main house and renovated Victorian stable area.  Giving taste of life as a stately home resident, guests can stroll through the private grounds of a working estate which is home to stables for the horses and carriages driven by the owners and the beautifully restored Victorian walled gardens.

Perfectly positioned above the River Esk, the history of Netherby Hall dates to Roman times and it is thought that the grounds of the hall have been inhabited for nearly 2,000 years.  Purchased by Gerald and Margo Smith in 2014, they began work on the restoration of Netherby Hall to sympathetically restore, repair, and reinstate the Victorian stables, Walled Garden, and greenhouses to create a stunning retreat for guests to enjoy.

From cultural events at Netherby Hall including their concert series to nearby attractions, such as Kielder Water, scenic expeditions on foot or by bike and award-winning dining at Pentonbridge Inn close-by – Netherby Hall’s sister property – or to just relax and enjoy natural wildlife and nature, there’s plenty of reasons to visit.
