The Walled Garden

Welcome to the Walled Garden at Newton Hall – an exceptional and entirely unique living opportunity which combines imagination, innovation and drama to seamlessly integrate what was and what can be. Formerly a prominent feature of the Newton Hall estate, this Grade II listed asset had, over the years, become sadly neglected, but today it is being reinvented to create a beautifully realised home nestling within historic settings.

Project Overview

At the heart of the Walled Garden project lies an incredible opportunity to create a visionary and romantic idyll. It is an opportunity which has been fully embraced thanks to the sympathetic yet highly creative approach to the garden and its environs.

The jewel in the Walled Garden crown is without doubt a stunning, sunken living space which will be embedded into the landscape itself. As well as enhancing the many original features around it, this pioneering addition will bring an entirely new dimension to the structure, which has no visual impact on the view outside the garden boundary and thereby preserves the heritage and provenance of its surroundings.

Access to the accommodation will be via a striking frameless glass entrance and from here the internal space will open out to reveal versatile living areas, a cinema, bar, wine store, gym and sauna, plus five bedrooms and five bathrooms. From the centre point, an elegant spiral staircase will lead up to a retractable glazed panel which will open on to the spectacular garden above.

At this current design stage there is still plenty of scope for the new owner to have maximum input on final layout and room design. creation of a highly personalised and bespoke home.

Designed by Award Winning Celebrity Gardener Sean Murray

The careful design of the outside space is a refection of the garden’s original purpose and therefore an acknowledgement of its unique heritage. This is evidenced by an artful and sensitively handled fusion of traditional features and contemporary style.

The resulting Lunar Garden, designed by award- winning celebrity gardener Sean Murray, takes its inspiration from the original moon window found in one of the existing walls. As such it incorporates the eight phases of the moon to create a versatile space which can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Close to the house are plants that are more typically associated with a walled garden, providing tastes to be savoured and scents to be enjoyed. These include espalier fruit trees, a rill of herbs, heritage vegetables and old-fashioned roses.

Once in the garden, a meandering path takes the visitor on a journey of discovery through a series of outdoor rooms. These are accessed by circular openings within the serpentine yew hedge which snakes diagonally across the space. Here the predominantly white planting is punctuated with accents of lemon, silver, blue, lime and maroon. Even the oak seating has been carefully selected to enhance the atmosphere of this impressive space as it will weather to a shimmering silver grey.


Newton Hall Estate is situated approximately half a mile from the village of Newton on the Moor, which in turn gives excellent access to the A1 for commuting to the market towns of Alnwick, approximately 6.5 miles to the North and Morpeth and approximately 13 miles to the South offering an excellent range of services and amenities as well as schooling for all ages.

The Mainline Railway station at nearby Alnmouth provides excellent direct services to Newcastle, Edinburgh and London’s Kings Cross Station. Newcastle City Centre lies approximately 28 miles to the south for an extensive range of amenities, shopping facilities and schooling.

The property is also perfectly situated for easy access to Northumberland’s stunning Heritage Coastline and the county’s un-spoilt countryside
