Property description

A stunning and historic 12 bedroom boutique hotel located in the county of Northumberland.

It is extremely unusual to market a property or business with such a rare history, which is evident from the array of historic architectural features which have been uncovered throughout the hotels restoration and which now form an integral part of the modern presentation.

The hotel is in close proximity to many of Northumberland's major tourist attractions, including the Dark Sky Park, Hadrian's World Heritage Site and a multitude of quaint towns and villages , making it superbly positioned to capitalise on the region's tourist trade.

The town not only attracts tourism and leisure but it is also a thriving commercial area providing all year round trade and footfall.


Centrally located within a thriving market town in the beautiful county of Northumberland, giving access to a host of tourist destinations and attractions including Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site, Northumberland National Park and Dark Sky Park. There are good road and rail links to Newcastle upon Tyne and a variety of charming towns and villages in close proximity.
