The Grade II listed, 19th Century walled garden at Ford Castle in Berwick-upon-Tweed is available to let as the setting for a new business venture.

Savills Wooler-based rural team is asking for expressions of interest in the nearly two-acre site which lies within 100 yards of the castle on the Ford and Etal Estate. 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, comments: “This is an unusual business opportunity on a blank canvas in a beautiful, private setting. 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.”
