Greystead Old Church - An opulent Grade II Listed Georgian Church Conversion

- Magnificent, converted, 19th-century church in the heart of the North Tyne Valley
- Peaceful, riverside location
- Retains its beautiful, period features
- Includes four luxurious bedrooms


This stunning, luxury church conversion, yards from the banks of the North Tyne River, sits within private grounds amid the natural splendour of the Northumberland National Park.

Rated five stars by Sykes and Visit England alike, the sympathetic restoration stills boasts many of its striking original features, such as Victorian stained glass and tiles, original fireplaces, Georgian panelling, exposed stonework, and a Gothic archway, and combines period character with luxurious modern living, including elegant décor and eco-friendly, underfloor heating.

The vast, first floor mezzanine contains a stylish kitchen space, along with airy dining and living areas, all with views from the original lancet windows. The ground floor features four beautiful bedrooms, one of which is housed in the church’s original panelled vestry, as well as an additional sitting room - complete with woodburner - in the light-filled former altar space.

Greystead Old Church’s enclosed, private garden is perfect for peaceful barbeques and guests also have access to the owner’s all-weather tennis court in the adjacent rectory grounds. Take to the gardens at night, to enjoy the area’s ‘Dark Skies’ status by gazing at the heavens from the star-gazing platform.

Salmon and trout fishing along the North Tyne River can also be arranged through the owners.

Whether it’s with family or a group of friends, this gorgeous and unusual property is perfect for exploring the Northumberland National Park and is in easy reach of local market towns, Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Borders.
