Elements of the main building can be traced back to the mid 18th Century and has, since the1750’s, been used as the dwelling house of local Merchants including (between 1821-1896) well known illustrator Joseph Crawhall and was the birthplace of his son (also Joseph) who later became famed as a technically brilliant water-colourist of animals and birds.

Since the turn of the 20th Century the site has been used as Morpeth Grammar School for Girls (early 1900’s to around 1973) and then various municipal buildings for Northumberland County Council including, of course, The Morpeth Registry Office.

All apartments boast generous dimensions and substantial walls with many incorporating high ceilings and other interesting architectural features.

Views are either over Newgate Street or the Garden areas – sometimes both. Our bungalows have been created to blend with both the Grade 2 listed building and the surrounding properties.

Access to the site by car is along Northumberland Gardens off the leafy Cottingwood Lane. By foot residents can gain secure fobbed access from Newgate Street through the unique arched and crennelated Tudor gateway.
