After a devastating fire ripped through the 17th century Jacobean hunting lodge in December 2015, restoration work is progressing well.
The owners of the historical grade II listed building in Newcastle upon Tyne was given permission to transform it into a £23 million fiver star hotel, on the basis that the buildings historic features, including the roof, floor layouts, staircase and windows were all restored to their former glory.
Once completed, Woolsington Hall will open once again with a golf course, restaurant, Spa and a cookery school. All this could pump £8.9 million into the local and regional community, whilst creating more than 160 jobs.
The new hotel and extensive grounds, which is a grade II registered park and garden, set out in Capability Brown style during the 19th Century will be a real attraction for visitors seeking a bespoke and unique experience.
