Arriving at Middleton Hall is nothing short of spectacular - a breathtaking 17th century mansion, nestling in woodland near Belford, in the heart of the Northumberland countryside. This grade II listed stone built mansion has been lovingly converted back to its former glory and is the perfect venue for large groups of families or friends wishing to holiday together.
Catering is fully flexible, either self-cater or for an additional cost, the owners can organise staff to cater for your every need. If you want to venture further afield, there is plenty to see and do on your doorstep; the whole of the Heritage Coast is tantalisingly close, with castles and beaches galore. Shop and pub 1.5 miles. Please note, there is an additional property on site which can sleep up to 16 people, so if you are a larger group, book both and you have accommodation for 40! The grounds are shared with the second property.
The pretty Northumberland village of Belford lies in the heart of the countryside, midway between the popular towns of Alnwick and Berwick-upon-Tweed. The pretty coastal village of Bamburgh, with its sweeping beaches and dramatic castle, is a short drive away. Belford itself is an old coaching village with a variety of shops, pubs, restaurants and a nine-hole golf course. It is ideally placed for exploring the Cheviots, the Northumberland Coastline and the Scottish Borders.
