First Report

Had heard about this place a few times so we decided to check it out since we had a free day to do some exploring. Thought I would make my first report on this place.

Otterburn Hall History

Otterburn Hall is an English country house and estate in Otterburn, Northumberland. It is situated in 500 acres (200 ha) of deer park and woodland in the Northumberland National Park, northeastern England. The building was constructed in 1870 for Lord James Douglas, the land given to him as recompense for the death of Lord James Douglas, who fought at the Battle of Otterburn, and was killed near Otterburn Tower (originally a castle), itself founded in 1086, and rebuilt in 1830. Both Otterburn Hall and Otterburn Castle have been seats of landed gentry. From 1980 to 2012, Otterburn Hall was used as a hotel. The house is Grade-II listed with English Heritage, and rated with four-stars by the Architectural Association School of Architecture.

The Explore

Inside was fairly empty, as it looked as though some building work had been stopped half way through. The main room when you walk in was quite cluttered with all sorts of stuff, such as a piano and about 15 fire extinguishers for some reason. It was interesting to have a wander and explore how each room looked mid-renovation. We roamed from bottom to top to bottom again, whilst being greeted by a few of the local pigeons in the process. There was another building attached to the Hall, however we were unable to get inside. Next time I think we'll take some ladders so we can maybe explore the extra building. I would have loved to visited this place a couple of years back when the inside was still intact, however all in all this was a really enjoyable experience accompanied by some lovely weather.

Please see below for some photos that I took from the visit.

I regret not taking more photos of the outside or the adjoining building, but will keep in mind for my next report.

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed.

More than happy for anyone to give any feedback.

Really nice first report there, good pics and write-up.
I've just edited out the access details though - bare in mind owners and security are able to see what's posted on here, so including access details often leads to places getting sealed up.
