Parmontley Hall Country Lodges

faad5078-3d5f-41ec-8a25-2a5d5b70c360
WHITFIELD Estate is a beautiful country estate owned by the Blackett-Ord family for the past 250 years. That sense of timelessness is now open to others, as lodges are now populating a lovely secluded clearing on the bank of the West Allen river.

The luxury Parmontley lodges, in four or six-berth variations, are inspired by Scandinavian log cabins. They are light, bright, warm, well designed and easy to live in, with all mod cons and decking verandas. All lodges are for sale, and some are also now available for letting for three or seven nights, with midweek breaks also being available.

Parmontley has an eleven-and-a-half month holiday licence, running from 1 March to 14 February. The attraction lies in its away-from-it-all location, and is ideal if you like to fish, walk, cycle, play golf or simply relax in a lovely setting. You can walk from the door, with footpaths on the estate and beyond.

For local needs, there is a village store at Whitfield. Further afield, the park is a 20-minute drive from Alston. A similar journey time takes you to the attractive market town of Hexham with its shops and a couple of supermarkets. It is also a market town and has an abbey to visit. The Lake District is within an hour if you want to venture even further out.

The Northumberland coast is within driving distance, and day trips could be to Craster for your kippers, Bamburgh with its castle, and Holy Island (Lindisfarne) and its heritage. Inland gems are Alnwick with the castle, and the upmarket Rothbury and fabulous Cragside gardens, owned by the National Trust.

Fishing is available on the estate itself, with several miles of riverbank belonging to the Whitfield Estate. Entertainment already ‘laid on’ includes red squirrels, curlews, red and black grouse, and even oyster catchers.

Parmontley is without doubt a wonderful hidden gem, and offers a very special opportunity to share in a privileged location, like a small village eventually comprising 42 lodges.
