The 29-acre estate, which offers outstanding views towards Holy Island, includes mature woodland, a stream running through the site, two lakes and a Victorian walled garden.

The marketing brochure states: ‘The Middleton Hall Estate offers a purchaser the chance to buy a fabulous collection of properties nestled in the heart of the Northumberland countryside.

‘As well as the magnificent Middleton Hall, and its potential to be a market leading hospitality venue, there are already four unique self-catering properties which are very popular holiday lets, with a fifth property which will provide letting income to be available soon. The hall itself also has bedrooms that are currently being let.

‘Middleton Hall offers the opportunity of further developing this fantastic property, although a lot of this work has already been undertaken in a sympathetic manner to retain a lot of the charm of the original building. The space and grandeur of the property offer a new operator the chance to further create something very special.

‘There is a pre-application for a further nine holiday cottages/units which has been approved. In addition, there is scope for further development on the site potentially (subject to planning permission).

‘Rarely does the opportunity to purchase a large estate with such huge potential in such an impressive location become available.’
