Built in 1864 to impress all that saw it, Middleton Gate House is approached through a 45ft high grand arch, formerly the entrance to Middleton Hall and set in private grounds of 3.5 acres. The Gate House is an extremely attractive detached stone built lodge steeped in history. The accommodation is mainly on ground floor level and is exceptionally presented throughout. The sun room at the entrance offers a relaxing spot overlooking open rural views, whilst the large kitchen/dining room enjoys a homely ambience. The separate living room benefits from a welcoming wood burner ensuring Middleton Gate House provides a cosy retreat, regardless of the season. The stylishly furnished master bedroom and family bathroom are also on this level. There are twin beds on the first floor, which can be linked to to create a large double bed if preferred. The views from the first floor stretch across to the sea with Lindisfarne Castle on the horizon. Well tended grounds offer grass, woodland and a stream, and boast spectacular views to the sea, the Farne Islands, Lindisfarne, Budle Bay and other lovely countryside.
Middleton Gate House is situated just over a mile from the friendly village of Belford where a warm welcome greets visitors. The village is often described as ‘the Gateway to the Secret Kingdom’ and offers many shops, a tea room, pubs serving delicious food, and an impressive golf driving range. There are also a variety of facilities available nearby including riding stables, a dog day care and kennels. The ‘picture postcard’ coastal village of Bamburgh, which is dominated by its majestic fortress and wide expanse of golden, sandy sweeping beach, is a mere 6 miles east. The small and friendly market town of Wooler sits at the foot of the Cheviot Hills 12 miles west and is a popular destination for those who enjoy cycling, hang-gliding, golf and horse riding. For walkers, the challenging route of the ‘St Cuthbert’s Way’ runs close by. Chatton Trout Fishery invites amateur anglers to fish in a picturesque 4-acre lake close by. Although Middleton is quietly situated, the A1 is less than a mile away, giving easy access to the elegant Georgian town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, which straddles the salmon-rich River Tweed to the north and the cobbled, market town of Alnwick (protected by its dramatic castle) to the south. Both offer a wide array of amenities equidistant at 15 miles away. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction where you can see the Grand Cascade Waterfall and dine in the restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe! Take a trip to the vibrant cities of Newcastle-upon-Tyne or Edinburgh (both are only an hour’s drive away), or enjoy the journey by train from Berwick or Alnmouth. Beach 6 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.

The gatehouse provided a wonderful holiday location and the owner was so very helpful and couldn't do enough to ensure our stay went well. The view are amazing and the very extensive grounds were brilliant for our two dogs. The property had been very tastefully decorated with no expense sparred on the finishing touches. This really was a 'little gem'.
