Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A striking country house with stunning views and ancilliary accommodation.


Just outside the Northumberland National Park, Yearle House lies only 1.5 miles south of the delightful market town of Wooler. The historic market town of Alnwick is just 16 miles to the south east with Alnwick Castle and gardens as well as a good range of services including supermarkets, boutiques and delicatessens along with the Playhouse Theatre/Cinema, thriving local sports club and swimming pool. Berwick-upon-Tweed (21 miles) and Alnmouth provide main line railway stations on the fast East Coast Line between London Kings Cross and Edinburgh.

The city of Newcastle is the main centre for art and culture with theatres, art galleries, including the famous Baltic, and a dynamic city centre as well as the Quayside, which hosts numerous international events throughout the year. Newcastle International Airport has a good selection of regular scheduled flights to UK and overseas destinations. Good local state education is available in Alnwick and Morpeth, with well-respected private schools at Longridge Towers near Berwick, Mowden at Hexham and several well-known Newcastle schools.
Built in 1759 Yearle House occupies a commanding position on the edge of the hamlet of Earle with outstanding views into the hills and yet is only 1.5 miles from the busy market town of Wooler.

The house has, from its relatively humble start, evolved into a significant family home with expansion into the ancillary quarters and the adjoining outbuildings and cottages. In more recent times great care and attention has been focused on the decorative presentation using insightful interior design techniques and the best quality materials.

This project is all but complete but there remains scope with the kitchen and old laundry next in line for upgrading.

The main family accommodation is on the ground and first floors with the first floor billiards room of special note, but a separate stair leads to an attic apartment with extra bedrooms, sewing and store rooms as well as a delightful timber lined playroom.

Garden Flat

Adjoining the rear of the house are the old garages, with a mechanics pit, and over which is a separate flat with sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. This flat is currently let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy but could be vacated giving two months' notice.

The Stable Cottage

A self-contained cottage on two floors which has been partly refurbished. It has a large hall, sitting room with door out into a private garden area; two bedrooms and a bathroom are on the first floor. This cottage is currently vacant.

Bothy Cottage

Tucked away at the end of the garden is the Bothy Cottage. It has ground floor accommodation comprising 2 bedrooms, sitting room/kitchen and bathroom. This cottage is let as holiday accommodation.


The gardens at Yearle House are a special feature. There are two distinct parts with a simple lawn and borders around the house, woodland garden beyond and below a dramatic walled garden where there is fantastic scope for the keen gardener.

The main drive sweeps up to the back of the house, flanked by Rhododendrons, and the back drive runs through the old Yearle Estate steading which has now been tastefully developed.

Acreage: 3.5 Acres
