Bywell Hall, 2 Bearl Farm, Stocksfield, NE43 7AL – Visit Now

Bywell Hall is one of the jewels of the River Tyne. Situated on the north bank of that fine watercourse in Bywell, Northumberland, the classic 18th-century manor house boasts a fine portico, decorative windows, an orangery, and ornamental urns all set in rolling parkland.

Originally held by the Nevilles in the 1300s, the hall passed to the Fenwicks in the sixteenth century due to the involvement of the Neville family in the northern uprising. The current building dates from the 1760s and was built by the Fenwicks to the designs of the famous James Paine. Passing into the hands of the Wentworth Beaumonts in the nineteenth century, it was further beautified by the great John Dobson.

One of the smaller, more compact venues on our list, Bywell Hall offers bespoke guided tours for small groups on selected days of the year. All the aspects of the classic English manor house are to be enjoyed in one convenient setting.

The hamlet of Bywell is itself well worth an exploration, featuring a castle and not one but two Anglo-Saxon churches. And the countryside roundabout is full of great walking routes and industrial history – visitors are encouraged to visit the lead mining museum to find out what the Wentworth-Beaumonts did for a living.
