The 93-bedroom hotel sits in c. 140 acres of manicured gardens and natural woodland and is in a countryside location on the edge of the Northumberland National Park.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall is also located in close proximity, as is the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Further tourist attractions include The Northumberland Dark Skies Park and the huge leisure destination of Kielder Water and Forest Park.
The hotel has accommodation over four floors comprising a large dining/restaurant and a bistro bar catering for up 260 residents and guests, a large function room which, when combined with the orangery, can host up to 160 people. There is also a small meeting/conference room on the ground floor.
Externally there are seven houses, including two disused “bothy” cottages, two staff houses and a large villa, which is derelict but could be converted to provide spa facilities, holiday lets or residential use, subject to planning consent.
Mark Worley, director at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for a hotel operator to obtain a large country house hotel with massive scope to increase trade and profits. The asking price is expected to generate significant interest from a range of potential buyers.”
