A pele tower was recorded at Beaufront in 1415. Dorothy Carnaby, heiress to the estate in the 16th century, married Gilbert Errington, and the Erringtons built a new house in the 17th century.

The property was acquired by the Cuthbert family in the early 19th century and the present imposing castellated Gothic revival style mansion was built, incorporating parts of the 17th-century house, between 1836 and 1841 to the design of architect John Dobson. William Cuthbert was High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1860.
