A magnificent family house in North Yorkshire
Newburgh Priory is within the picturesque landscape of the Howardian Hills near Coxwold, North Yorkshire. Standing on the site of an Augustinian priory, which was founded in 1145, it is a fine stately home in a superb setting with breathtaking views to the Kilburn White Horse in the distance. The extensive grounds contain a water garden, walled garden, topiary yews and woodland walks together with a large lake.
What makes Newburgh so special in our minds is that it always has been,
and still continues to be, a family home and the successive changes and alterations made by each generation have imbued it with a unique character and charm. The Priory is still lived in by the current owners Sir George and Lady Wombwell and both they and their children carry out the day to day running of the house and surrounding Estate.
The house and grounds are open to the public for guided tours in April,
May and June as well as a Tearoom located in the charming old priory kitchens selling home-baked cakes and scones. The Priory is also available for exclusive hire as a venue for weddings and receptions. There are three magnificent state rooms available for civil weddings and receptions can be held in a number of stunning locations ranging from the sculpted lawns of
the South Front to the beauty of the ruined Long Gallery with its open
roof and charming garden.
The Estate is a traditional Northern estate comprising of over 6,000 acres incorporating a range of let agricultural, residential and commercial property, large tracts of woodland, a pheasant shoot and of course the Priory itself together with the Historic parkland.
However the Estate has not stood still in time and continues to evolve and diversify - preserving the past whilst managing the present to build the future. We look forward to welcoming you into our home soon and helping you
share in the beauty and charm that is Newburgh Priory.
