Belsay Hall, Castle & Gardens


The Belsay estate on the main route from Newcastle to Jedburgh was owned by the Middleton family from 1270, when it belonged to Sir John Middleton, Lord Chancellor to Henry III. The Middletons built Belsay Castle, a tower house, in the 14th Century during a period of Border warfare. In 1614, during more peaceful times, Thomas Middleton, twice High Sheriff of Northumberland, and his wife Dorothy, built a manor house adjoining the tower. Sir Charles Monck (1779-1867), inherited the Belsay estate in 1795, and built Belsay Hall and the Stable Block with courtyard, which were completed in 1817, and laid out the grounds and parkland seen today, including the Quarry Garden.[1] The Hall, Castle and Grounds now belong to English Heritage and are open to the public.[2]
