Blenkinsoppp Estate compared to Downton Abbey


The ongoing sale of the Blenkinsopp estate on the outskirts of Haltwhistle has been compared to popular TV programme Downton Abbey by an article in the Daily Mail today. The 22 acre site takes in a variety of houses, land with potential planning permission, a public house and Blenkinsopp Castle. It is certainly caught the attention of the UK media and today’s article in the Daily Mail is just one of many which has appeared over the last few days.

There are actually deeds of title associated with the Blenkinsopp estate which was bought for the pricey sum of £2000 back in 1955. This must be one of the shrewdest investments we have seen for some time and perfectly illustrates the growing influence of the tourism industry in the Haltwhistle area. It will be interesting to see which parties play their hand with regards to the sale and whether we will see an overhaul of the Blenkinsopp estate in the future.

For those who have visited Haltwhistle and the surrounding area you will be well aware of the beautiful scenery and the history which can be matched by very few places around the world. It is attracting more than its fair share of tourists from not only the UK but also around the world and indeed the Haltwhistle economy has benefited enormously from this. There will be many employees and businesses in the region looking at the potential sale of Blenkinsopp estate and watching for any feedback and what kind of figure the estate finally goes for.

We will continue to monitor the situation in the weeks and months ahead and advise you of any changes in the process and indeed hopefully in the not too distant future we will be able to confirm the buyer. In the meantime if you have any stories or questions relating to Haltwhistle and the surrounding area and please feel free to get in touch with us.
