The property is surrounded by mature parkland with many mature trees, hedges and grass verges providing homes to an array of wild life. These picturesque and peaceful surroundings were originally owned by the famous draper - Cuthbert Bainbridge of Newcastle dating back to1865. He lived in the grand Manor House which now forms an exclusive apartment block.
