Coupland Castle is a magnificent Grade-I listed residence in a private setting amid the glorious landscape of Northumberland and enjoying fine views over the Cheviot Hills. Dating back to the late 16th century, Coupland Castle, with its crenellated tower, is thought to have been the last fortified building constructed on the Scottish border before the act of union.
The castle has been skilfully maintained and embellished over the years to provide superb and elegant interiors that are ideal for entertaining, whilst showcasing the property’s fine architectural details. The internal accommodation offers great flexibility and includes seven reception rooms, eleven bedrooms (two en-suite) five further bathrooms and wine cellar. In addition to the main house, there is ancillary accommodation in the form of a 3-bedroom cottage within the courtyard, and a 3-bedroom lodge. There are 25 acres of grounds including an arboretum, formal gardens, a kitchen garden, woodland and paddocks.
Sam Gibson, who is handling the sale of the property, said: “Coupland Castle has a particularly attractive and private situation, nestled within the Cheviot Hills and not visible from any public road. The property has been owned by the same family for many years with the result that it has been very well maintained and the sumptuous interiors are a reflection of their great care and attention to detail.
“The grounds are a truly outstanding feature of the property, offering formal areas, woodland walks and paddocks and stabling for those with equestrian interests.
“There is the potential to generate an income from the cottage and the lodge, both of which have been successfully let in recent times, or from development of some of the many outbuildings, subject to planning consent.”
Coupland Castle is located in a secluded yet very accessible setting, approximately four miles north of the pretty market town of Wooler, known as the gateway to Glendale and the Cheviot Hills. Alnmouth and Berwick train stations are both within 30 minutes’ drive and Newcastle is 51 miles distant. Coupland Castle is for sale through joint agents: Galbraith / Strutt and Parker for offers over £1.9 million.
