A new development opportunity which aims to bring a thriving community, business and leisure hub to the area has arisen in Northumberland.

Commercial property consultancy, Naylors Gavin Black, has been enlisted to market the new development opportunity at Stocksfield Hall Business Park.

Landlord, Allendale Estates, hopes the development will attract a variety of occupiers and amenities including health and beauty, fitness and wellbeing, hospitality, arts and creative studio uses, independent retailers, and light industrial.

It is hoped that the development will mirror the success of South Acomb Business Park, which boasts a range of office occupiers, a coffee shop, and retail offerings.

The available units, a range of converted agricultural buildings, span in size from 2,000 – 14,864 sq. ft.

While these buildings can serve as offices, the landlord is encouraging diverse use, and is offering new leases.

Naylors Gavin Black partner, Chris Pearson, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a new, lively business hub in Stocksfield, for residents and visitors. A similar development at Vallum Farm is now a buzzing visitor attraction and features a Michelin starred restaurant.”

Strategically located off the B6309 in South Northumberland, Stocksfield Hall Business Park lies in close proximity to the A69, facilitating ready access to Newcastle and Carlisle via Hexham.

Colin Davidson CEO at Allendale Estates, said: “The self-contained units are perfect for SMEs looking for a scenic, rural base.

“Allendale Estates is a diverse landed estate business with interests in farming, forestry, residential and commercial property and renewables. Conservation is at the heart of what we do, and we look to promote this further in the coming years.

“The new development opportunity will complement our office facilities at Bearl Farm and South Acomb business parks which are just a short drive away.”

Lucy Mouter, commercial surveyor at Bradley Hall, said: "Bradley Hall is proud to be helping bring new businesses to this popular, rural corner of South Northumberland. We’re excited to see the changes Allendale Estates has planned for the units and the impact this development will have on the area.”
