Woolsington Hall, Woolsington - Newcastle upon Tyne

A compact late-C17 country house, with later additions. It has service buildings, all set in fine gardens and parkland. A planning application to convert the building to a five-star hotel and spa was approved by the Local Authority in 2015. The Hall was gutted by a fire in December 2015 and the owners are now carrying out stabilisation and repair works to make the structure wind and weather tight.
