Until 1552 it was the property of the Fenwick family, from whom it passed to the Aynsleys. During the early years of the 19th century Harle Tower was inhabited by Lord Charles Murray-Aynsley and his wife Alicia, née Mitford. In about 1848 it was purchased by Thomas Anderson of Newcastle (High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1843), and his descendants remain in residence.
The house incorporates a three-storey tower of medieval origins. The central two-storey block of five bays dates from the early 18th century. Substantial additions were made in the Gothic Revival style in about 1862, but much of the 19th-century work has not survived a remodelling of the property in 1980.
In 2005 the east wing was occupied by the Turnbulls and in 2010 by the Rogers family. As of 2013, it was the home of the Anderson family.
