  • "We had a marvellous holiday at Middleton Hall."

    It is a stunning house and absolutely enormous; perfect for big family gatherings where everyone wants to be together but also have their own space too. June was very helpful and everything we needed was provided. We were slightly worried from previous reviews that the wifi wouldn’t be great, but in fact there was a strong signal in every room of the house. The location is perfect, just 15 minutes from Bamburgh and Holy Island and it was half an hour to Amble where we hired bikes and cycled the very picturesque route to Alnmouth and back. A bonus was the rapid ev charging point in Belford. We would definitely like to stay at Middleton Hall again!

  • "We are a family of 19 (10 adults, 9 children) who loved our stay at the Hall."

    We had plenty of space both inside and outside, despite the storm damage to the grounds. We found the Hall to be very comfortable and the children loved all the nooks & crannies for playing hide & seek. It was great to have a table in the dining hall that was large enough to accommodate us all comfortably.

  • "The Hall and grounds are breathtaking."

    June (the owner) is very relaxed and professional. Would 100% recommend for both personal and professional use. The only issue was poor wifi - it was difficult to get signal in the house, so not ideal for working on some networks (especially EE, however O2 and Vodafone seemed OK). June mentioned they are working on this now, though, so check first with her if this will be improved. There are some small items that would have improved the stay - for example, a few of the kitchen implements (peeler, scissors, etc) that could be renewed! Otherwise, it was a perfect stay in the most scenic location and so close to some picturesque sites in Bamburgh, Lindisfarne, Alnwick, etc. Really a showstopper of a place and phenomenal value for money. I will definitely be going again!

  • "There showers were very intermitant wether we got hot water or not, even not at peak times."

    It was advertised as having internet this was not the case it picked up the hall internet if you were stood next to the receiver but even then it wasn't strong enough to do anything with a number of guests were supposed to attend online meetings whilst we were away and couldn't get online. My grandson needed to chat with his learning difficulty lady and wasn't able to get online. The main cooker in the large kitchen was very slow to cook anything meals took twice as long to cook. which meant the first few nights we didn't eat until 9pm.

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful week in this amazing property and it’s surroundings."

    The house was well equipped with everything we needed and the owners were on hand to deal with any questions we had. The property is situated in a perfect location from which to explore the surrounding countryside and the beautiful beaches nearby. Understandably we were unable to use the snooker room owing to Covid restrictions which was disappointing, but did not spoil our stay. WiFi connectivity was limited as mentioned in the property description, and this was an issue for one of our party who had to unexpectedly undertake some work during the week. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to others & would like to thank the owners for a most enjoyable and relaxing stay.

  • "The owner was very welcoming, gave a lovely tour of her home and then left us to our celebrations."

    She couldnt have been a better host. The house was magnificent and ideal for our party celebrations over the week. Great facilities, comfortable and warm and charming and picturesque setting. We will definitely return for another week.

  • "A warm welcome to a very grand holiday 'cottage' set in delightful surroundings!"

    Unbelievable amount of space - the entrance hall is larger than a badminton court and the dining table could easily seat 24. Our party of 15 adults was accommodated with ease. Exceptionally comfortable and attractive furnishings and decor. Kept beautifully clean and warm - especially so for such a large building. Masses of space for car-parking. Very easy to follow directions from A1, north of Alnwick. Plenty of interesting places to visit within and hour's drive or bus ride.

Belford 1.5 miles. The magic of Middleton Hall enchants you from the moment you enter the grounds; as you weave your way through woodland, nothing quite prepares you for the sight of this breathtaking 17th century mansion, nestling amongst the trees near Belford in the heart of the Northumberland countryside.

Middleton Hall, a Grade II listed, stone-built mansion, has been lovingly converted back to its former glory by the current owners, and is the perfect destination for large groups of families or friends wishing to enjoy time together in one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

The stone balustrade steps lead to an impressive entrance porch, opening into the Great Hall, where deep comfortable sofas, high ornate ceilings and a roaring open fire welcome you to this very special luxury holiday home.

To the right of the entrance hall at this Belford holiday home is a magnificent dining room with Italian open fireplace, views over the lake and gardens, and a table which comfortably seats 24.

To the left, a beautiful, hand-carved oak staircase leads to the first floor.

There, you will find an assortment of comfortable seating areas to either nestle down quietly with a book, or gather together and exchange tales of the day’s activities; choose from the gallery snug, the ground floor light and airy orangery or the sumptuous formal drawing room, which has its own adjacent small, well-equipped kitchen.

From the ground floor, the staircase leads up to seven spacious king-size bedrooms with panoramic views and en-suites, a double bedroom with adjacent bathroom, and two twin rooms with en-suite facilities, plus four handy day beds can also be used within these rooms.

On the ground floor at this holiday home near Belford is a seating area, a perfect spot for rainy days, and also on this floor is a large, well-equipped kitchen serving the dining room, which has everything you could need for a house party; catering is fully flexible, either self-cater or contact the owners who can organise staff to cater for your every need, plus three cloakrooms complete the fabulous interior of this grand Belford holiday home.

The delightful grounds of Middleton Hall are there for guests to enjoy.

French doors from the orangery lead to a terrace, tailor-made for sunny days relaxing and sipping something bubbly.

Or for the more adventurous, stick on a pair of wellies and explore the glorious grounds, with woodland walks and boating lakes, which are there for your enjoyment.

In the unlikely event you ever wish to leave Middleton Hall, there is plenty to see and do on your doorstep; the whole of the Heritage Coast is tantalisingly close, with castles and beaches galore.

This truly is a very special Belford holiday home for that long-awaited Northumberland break.

About the location

BELFORD

Alnwick 15 miles; Berwick-upon-Tweed 15 miles; Bamburgh 5 miles.

The picturesque Northumberland village of Belford lies in the heart of Heritage countryside, midway between the popular walled towns of Alnwick and Berwick-upon-Tweed. The pretty coastal village of Bamburgh, with its sweeping beaches and dramatic castle, is only a short drive away. Belford itself is an old coaching village with a pleasant square and offers a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. It is ideally placed for exploring the Northumbrian Coastal Route, Cheviots, the renowned Northumberland Coastline and the Scottish Borders.
