About Mowbray House

Mowbray House is a spacious five bedroom property with an additional one bedroom cottage within its grounds, located in the historic market town of Crook, in the North East of England.

Mowbray House opened its doors in 2004, firstly as a children’s home. We then became a transition home for young people aged (16-25) and from 2015 we became a home for adults (18 plus). For some of our residents Mowbray could be their forever home, for others it is about developing their independence, self-confidence and social skills to enable them to move forward and live are more independent life.
