Cameron Hall Developments plans to turn the derelict Woolsington Hall, near Newcastle, into a mixed-use project with leisure and residential components, as well as a 34-room boutique hotel.
The 17th Century Hall, which was bought by Cameron Hall Developments in 1994, was put on the English Heritage ‘At Risk Register’ in 2000.
The proposal, which will be submitted to Newcastle City Council this summer, will be funded through the construction of 70 detached executive homes on land to the south of the historic parkland, according to a report on The Journal.
Cameron Hall Developments chief executive Paul Mackings said: “Newcastle is one of the few major cities in the UK which lacks a five-star hotel which this development will provide.
He said the building’s historic assets would be sensitively refurbished to provide a superb backdrop for the boutique hotel, with each of the suites uniquely different.
“In addition, as part of the hotel, the development will include the construction of a restaurant within the former stables, a spa complex within the former farm buildings, a walled garden marquee for events, weddings and receptions and a cookery school within the walled garden cottage," continued Mackings.
“The leisure complex will be completed by the construction of a sensitively detailed 18-hole golf course.”
