A FORMER country house hotel in Redesdale is about to go under the hammer.

Otterburn Hall will be included in an auction held at the Grand Hotel, Gosforth Park, Newcastle, on Wednesday.

The Grade II-listed property, within the Otterburn Hall estate, has not been used for many years.

The auction guide price is £235,000 and includes the former hotel and country house and more than 16 acres of surrounding land with planning consent for a 26-bed hotel, wedding venue, restaurant and bar and spa.

The hall was placed under auction last year for a guide price of £550,000, but was withdrawn before the auction.

A private fishing lake and river are also included, and drawings have been produced for the introduction of lodges on the site.

The hall, which closed without warning in 2012, was sold at auction for £300,000 in 2015.
