Own an entire village (and become a Lord!)

Have you ever fancied being lord (or lady!) of the manor? Well this could be your perfect opportunity. An entire village is up for sale on Rightmove; the 22 acre site is being sold as two lots, one of which is currently under offer.

The village, set around the Blenkinsopp castle, comes complete with the deeds for the ‘Lord’ and ‘Master’ titles meaning that you could be the ‘king of the castle’!

Take a look around

The village was originally put on the market for just £1.75million, which included both the sale of the Blenkinsopp Castle Home Park and The Blenkinsopp Castle house. The home park (Lot 1), which includes 70 park homes set in the beautiful rural setting of Haltwhistle, Northumberland, has recently gone under offer. But fear not, there’s plenty still on the market…


There’s still a chance to own a piece of history with Lot 2 which comes complete with a grade II listed house, offices, pub and three bedroom flat. Blenkinsopp Castle House, along with all the extras, is on the market for £450,000 and boasts great views across the valley and the courtyard. The estate is built around the well-preserved ruins of the 14th Century castle, which some say is haunted, but on the up-side there’s rumoured to be buried treasure somewhere on the site!
