Mowden Hall School
Mowden Hall is a prestigious private school situated in the Tyne Valley near Corbridge. It provides a first-class education to children from nursery age to year 8, and of its 170 students, 85 are boarders. The property was a stately home until the school relocated here in 1945, having been evacuated from their original site in Darlington during the Second World War.
Country House, Hexham
This imposing property, built around the turn of the last century, has been occupied by three generations of the same family for the past 100 years. While the first generation of owners were in residence the property was commandeered as an officer’s mess to support the war effort during the Second World War. After the war the property was handed back and the family undertook renovations to return it to being a family home, but little further work took place until the house passed to the current owners who decided that it was time to make the property fit for the current century and commissioned extensive renovations and remodelling, including a complete replacement and upgrade of the plumbing and heating systems.
