The Priory of Tynemouth owned an old manor house at this site, near to the River Coquet. Only a few ruins remain. All that survives is a short length of wall, 4.6m long. A small window of 15th century date can be seen in the wall. Monasteries often owned property in towns, and it may have been the house of a small group of monks. The surviving wall is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
