A grade II listed former country house and hotel set within 16 acres of mature woodland, lawns, private fishing lake and river with fishing rights is once again up for sale.

Otterburn Hall, built in 1870, is to be put up for a public auction by Auction Estates on February 22.

The 25 bedroom building will be starting at £150,000 and the agent claims it is an 'ideal opportunity' for a developer or investor.

The 25,000 sq. foot building is in 'need of a full refurbishment' as it has not been used for many years.

In 2002, the hotel was sold to the Angel Group, then it closed without warning in 2012 and was later sold at auction for £300,000 in 2015. Work on the hall was started but stopped suddenly in 2017.

In 2019, the hall was placed under auction for a guide price of £550,000 but was withdrawn before the auction.

Then in 2022, it was again put up for auction at a guide price of £235,000 but received no bids. The parish council at the time had reported that the buyer was currently abroad, and the windows would be boarded up.

The hall is situated one mile from the historic village of Otterburn and is 30 miles away from Newcastle.

It is also a part of Northumberland National Park. Newcastle International Airport is just 25 miles away and both the A69 and A1 are easily accessible.

The property has also undergone asbestos removal treatment.
