The future of Greystead Institute
This beautiful late Victorian hall was converted in 2018-19 into a 5 star deluxe holiday cottage which opened in May 2019. It has been retained as far as possible in its original state, including the Victorian fireplace and character beams, while the Victorian windows have been replaced in exactly their original form. The Institute has a large open-plan living and kitchen space, a dining room in the new conservatory and two en suite king-size and double bedrooms, one with feature Victorian-style bath. A stunning oak spiral staircase specially commissioned for the room is the central feature of the newly converted space. There is a patio with stunning views overlooking the Northumbrian hills and a small private garden. Visitors also have access to the all-weather tennis court adjacent to the property, and to the communal areas of the Old Rectory garden and star-gazing platform.
The Institute is currently being sold to purchasers who intend to continue renting it out for holiday lets. At present, the property is on the same site as our other two holiday cottages, and bookings are made through Greystead Holiday Cottages. However, from January 2022, it will be under new ownership.
