This superb listed building was once a school for Howick Village, and is part of the Howick Estate, which was the home of the 2nd Earl Grey for whom the famous tea was blended. He became Prime Minister in 1830 and his monument stands at the top of Grey Street in Newcastle. Guests are provided with a free pass to the extensive grounds and formal gardens which surround nearby Howick Hall, which are open to the public from early February to mid November. The pass also includes the arboretum, approx. 65 acres of woodland walks all year round. The shoreline is just 400 metres away on a stunning coastal stretch designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Site of Special Scientific Interest where you can enjoy spectacular views of Dunstanburgh Castle, interesting bird life and wild flowers on a walk to Craster or Alnmouth.
