Middleton Hall is a stone's throw from Northumberland's magnificent coastline, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whether for walking, kite-surfing, riding, sandcastle-building, dune-surfing or just sitting and enjoying the views, the Northumberland beaches are well worth a visit. One of our favourite spots, only a few miles from the Hall, is Bamburgh Beach, with miles of pristine sand, nestled behind huge sand dunes and overlooked by the impressive Bamburgh Castle. Also close by is the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. This tiny, picturesque island linked at low tide to the mainland, is an overwhelmingly mystical place, home to the evocative remains of a ruined eleventh-century priory, a beautifully restored castle and the infamous Lindisfarne Mead.
The Hall sits in a peaceful situation amidst 30 acres of secluded, wooded grounds which include a large lawn ideal for children to play, a terrace with outside seating area, woodland walks and two lakes with private fishing.
The Middleton Hall Estate sits in a rural position six miles from the stunning beach at Bamburgh. Nestled behind huge sand dunes overlooked by the impressive Bamburgh Castle, the mile upon mile of pristine sands are perfect for walking, riding and sandcastle building.
Northumberland’s magnificent coastline, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is also renowned for its watersports so whether your interests are walking, kite surfing, sailing, coasteering, abseiling, riding through the surf or just relaxing with a good book, there is a fantastic choice of beaches in the area from lesser-known gems which remain almost deserted even in the summer months to the better known beaches of Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. This tiny, picturesque island linked at low tide to the mainland, is an overwhelmingly mystical place, home to the evocative remains of a ruined eleventh-century priory, a beautifully restored castle and the infamous Lindisfarne Mead.
For golf fanatics, there are a number of excellent courses nearby including the well known links courses at Dunstanburgh, Goswick, a British open qualifier course and Bamburgh, said to be one of the most scenic in the country. There is fabulous walking, riding and cycling in the nearby Cheviot Hills, and fishing enthusiasts can enjoy trout fishing at nearby Chatton or salmon fishing on the Till or legendary Tweed is within a 30 minute drive.
There are no less than 10 castles close by and a wonderful selection of gardens including those at nearby Howick Hall, rated as one of the top five coastal gardens in the country. For rainy day activities, the spa at nearby Doxford Hall is perfect for some rest and relaxation or visit Barter Books, one of the UK's largest second hand bookshops located in Alnwick's magnificent old Victorian railway station with a model railway linking the book columns.

"I just wanted to let you know that we had the most amazing time at Middleton Hall last weekend. The surprise was a surprise and the birthday girl was blown away. The owners were incredibly helpful and thoughtful, nothing was any trouble. You and the guys at Crabtree & Crabtree again made the whole process seamless and very straight forward considering the complicated booking arrangements. All in all we all had a fantastic, very chilled weekend with good friends in the most beautiful location and accommodation. We are already thinking of an occasion to book Middleton Hall again. Thank you so much for all your help."Thompson family
