Hethpool house in the College Valley

Edwardian Country House

Outside Hethpool House

The house is just a little way down a lovely tree lined drive. At the entrance to the drive you will see the unusual post box turned around so the letter box faces the house and not the postman!

The autumn colours down this drive are very beautiful and there is also a small summer house which looks north west towards the valley entrance.

Be sure to look out for the cannons on the right hand side. They come from Newcastle and are an evocative reminder of the Valley’s association with both Admiral Collingwood and Sir Arthur Munro Sutherland.

The gardens are actually on the other side of the house facing eastwards to welcome the morning sun. Here you will find the vegetable beds as well as an ancient Pele tower, well the remains of one that is.

Close by is Hethpool Lake and a short walk to Hethpool Linn.
