Teal House Learchild


This new flagship lodge is perfectly situated in the lyrical landscape within one of Northumberland’s most exquisite private homes.

Teal House’s hunting lodge-style, with a part stone and part cedar clad façade, will entice goose bumps from the moment you arrive. With soaring Cheviot views and rolling hills that make your heart sing, Northumberland has a wild beauty all of its own. The property is set in the landscape of a picturesque walled garden that leads to wildflower meadows, a meandering burn and the open fells beyond.
