This 'Arts and Crafts' house is set in wonderful gardens and was built for D.S. Marjoribanks Esq during 1906. The property was sold in 1921 to Mr G.S. Newall and renamed 'Shepherds Dene'. The house may have been used for evacuees during the war and possibly also as a convalescent home. In 1946 Mr G.S. Newall gave the house to the Diocese of Newcastle and it is now used as a retreat and conference centre. Grace McCombie, who has carried out detailed research on the building's history, gave us a short talk; she updated us on her latest researches to find the name of the architect who designed it.

Car parking available in the grounds of the building.

Members should have received a booking form in the post or by e-mail; or you can download the booking form as a PDF document here.
