Coupland Castle
Coupland Castle is situated in the village of Coupland 4 miles (6 km) to the north-west of Wooler, Northumberland, England. It is a Grade I listed building This is a tower house rather than a castle which was probably built at the end of the 16th century, sometime after 1584. The tower has three storeys with an attic on top and a small projecting tower carried up the south wall. A date stone over a fireplace in the tower engraved 'GW 1615 MW' is thought to represent George and Mary Wallis owners at that date It has been added to over the years and was restored in the 19th century and in 1820 was extended when a three bayed two stored house was built adjoining the tower The Bates family owned the estate in the 18th century. Elizabeth Bates heiress to the estate married Matthew Culley (b1731) the noted agriculturist in 1783. . In 1869 the house was the residence of a later Matthew Culley High Sheriff of Northumberland in that year. The Culleys sold the estate in 1923. The present owner, Candace DeWitt Phipps de Rothschild, occupies the castle in the summer months as holiday accommodation
