Savills’ Wooler-based rural team is asking for expressions of interest in the nearly two-acre site.

Created for the Marchioness of Waterford, the walled garden has pedestrian access from the centre of Ford village as well as limited vehicular access, and is connected to electricity and mains water.

According to the agent, it may be suitable for glamping or a retreat.

Guy Sampson, associate director in the rural management team at Savills Wooler, said: “This is an unusual business opportunity on a blank canvas in a beautiful, private setting.”

He added: The garden has been run as a plant nursery for many years; however, the estate is open to considering any proposal subject to the necessary consents. A large number of tourists visit the estate for its range of other attractions and a new venture could well benefit from the critical mass of successful businesses already there.”
