The Otterburn Castle Country House Hotel, located near Northumberland has been brought to market with a guide price of £1.75m.
The Grade II listed castle hotel – which dates back to the 11th Century is situated across four acres of land – with a further 28 acres of land available by separate negotiation on the edge of the Northumberland National Park.
The building houses 17 en-suite bedrooms, a grand reception with an original oak staircase, a breakfast room, lounge, bar and restaurant with a private dining area and an array of meeting and event spaces including the Garden Room and a permanent outdoor marquee.
Over the years, Otterburn Castle has undergone a number of upgrades. While the property’s “history and period charm” has been retained it now also features some contemporary design.
Elena Wynn who has operated and lived in the castle for the past five years said: “I have had some wonderful times here and feel proud to be the custodian of such a magnificent building.
“However, I am not a hotelier and I feel that the time is right to allow the full potential of the castle and the business to be realised in the hands of a new owner.”
Mark Worley, director at Christie and Co’s hospitality team who is handling the sale added: “The sale of Otterburn Castle not only provides the opportunity for a buyer to capitalise on the spring, summer and autumn periods, but also to tap into the wedding trade, a sector which also has a very rosy future.”
“The leisure and hospitality industry is bracing itself for what should hopefully be a fantastic summer, as the pent-up demand for staycations and leisure breaks is released once lockdown restrictions are eased.”
