Ewart Park is a Grade II listed mansion in rural Northumberland designed by Count Horace St. Paul. Horace, born in 1729 was a prominent figure in UK Law, until accidentally killing a man in a duel and being forced to flee the country and take exile in Austria. After playing an important part in the Seven Years War, and "having proved beyond doubt his soldierly valour", he returned to Britain seeking a Royal Pardon. After retiring from military service, he purchased the Ewart Park Estate from his brother in 1775, completely redesigning the house and grounds, which was then inhabited around 1787.

The St. Paul family were very influential at the time. Count Horace had two sons who played prominent roles in politics, Lt. Col. Henry Heneage who was MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed and Sir Horace David who was MP for Bridport. Another son, remained a bachelor. The estate eventually passed to Sir Horace III, Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Northumberland and MP for Worcestershire East.

Having only one child, Maria, the estate passed to her on her fathers death.. Mia, as she was known was the God-Daughter of Josephine Butler the influential feminist and social reformer of the late Victorian era, and married her son George Grey Butler.

On the death of George in 1937, their son, Horace IV did not have the means to pay for the upkeep of the now dilapidated mansion, especially after paying death duties. It was occupied briefly by the military in WW2 and has been uninhabited ever since.

I really wasn't sure what to expect from this place having seen no photos of it online, however I was pleasantly surprised. The house is deceivingly large, with the whole of the 18th century West Wing obscured by greenery and hidden from view.

The maps on the wall of the drawing room date from the 1920's.
