Shortflatt Tower is one of Northumberland's most beautiful country houses set in idyllic surroundings with well tended walled gardens and ancient woodland. Part of a private estate, we offer comfortable elegance and bespoke services including quality pampering in Fullerton Place, our Spa and Hammam.
Come and enjoy a taste of gracious country living in the luxurious comfort and tranquility that our 13th century fortalice tower has to offer.
We have seven individually decorated double bedrooms with views overlooking the formal garden and rolling Northumberland countryside. The Tower Keep drawing room has a vaulted ceiling, 6 foot thick walls and an open fire. The Dining room has antique furnishings, striking family portraits and a wood burning stove. Also included are a cosy kitchen & living area and bathrooms with cast-iron double ended roll top baths and luxurious rain showers.
The Keep opens out onto an impressive stone terrace and formal walled garden. The flower borders have been planned to bloom throughout the year and there is a beautiful rose quartz fountain.
With a variety of areas to stroll or to sit and relax in the garden and parkland, it's a wonderful space to explore. Balancing tranquil surroundings with energy and vitality, Shortflatt has an exceptionally calm and relaxing atmosphere.

"Perfect location and Venue for Team Building"
This is the second time that we have used Shortflatt Tower for a Team Build Venue. The Space and Facilities allow us to plan a good team build day and have freedom to let it flow at our own pace. The venue allows all delegates to remain relaxed and focussed throughout. Perfect. Thank you Shortflatt

"Fabulous accommodation for a large group - wonderful location"
This accommodation really is "grand" in every sense. You will really not be disappointed with the style and plush accommodation - almost like staying in your own stately home.
We were a large extended family group (9 adults and 8 children) made of families with small children as young as 3 up to teenagers of 16 and the accommodation suited us all. A beautiful base to visit the North East. Lovely spa and hot tub and great walks around the lakes.

"Stunning property close to Newcastle for a relaxing, easy to organise, break away!"
From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed into Shortflatt tower by very friendly staff, who were on site throughout to cater to all our needs, both in the spa and tower. The house was clean & comfortable, beautifully decorated & spacious. A lovely gesture of fresh home made croissants & jam were provided alongside the food basket. Such stunning views from and around the tower. This was a perfect location for a relaxing hen party and I would fully recommend it for a wedding too, with the lovely grounds. We will definitely be back to visit! Thanks to Octavia, Jon, Faye and the rest of the team for welcoming us.

"Unbelievably fantastic - so glad we found Shortflatt!!!!"
Just returned from the most amazing hen weekend at Shortflatt Tower and Fullerton Place Spa! Absolutely cannot fault a thing and we are so glad we found them! Everything was perfect and all the staff were excellent from start to finish - even throughout the booking procedure puting up with my many questions! On arrival Caroline and Jono met us to show us the Tower and the Cottage which we had also booked. To our delight they had put away our food and drink delivery for us which was lovely and very unexpected. We had exclusive use of Fullerton Place Spa on the Saturday and everyone was very happy with their treatments - I have to say I got one of the best facials I have ever had from Holly. The facilities were fantastic at the spa and everyone especially loved the outdoor hot tub! We had a catered dinner in the Tower dining room on the saturday night it was faultless, a really lovely experience which everyone really enjoyed. The standard of accommodation in both the Tower and the Cottage were fantastic and had all the amenities we'd ever need for a stay. We cannot thank Shortflatt enough for their hospitality and for really making it a weekend to remember - especially Caroline and Jono you were brilliant! We're thinking of an excuse to come back already!
