A four-star holiday home development has been given the go-ahead, with work to start this month.
Northumbrian Hills, at Burgham Park near Felton, will be a multi-staged development providing holiday homes and leisure facilities.
The project will start with the building of 50 stone holiday cottages, and once the plots have been sold, a pavilion with restaurants, bars, a spa and swimming pool will be built. The final stage will be the creation of a world-class golf academy.
Developer William Kiely, who owns Burgham Park Golf Club, said: “We’re delighted to finally be given the green light for the development. This has been years in the making so to see our first customers’ homes getting built in the near future will be fantastic.
“The first stage is to build 50 three-bedroom stone holiday cottages.
Each cottage will provide 107sqm spread over two floors and comes with a balcony as standard.
“We are also very aware of our carbon footprint so have put measures in place to ensure we are doing our best to care for the environment. We have air-source heat pumps for the underfloor heating, which can reduce energy consumption by 50 per cent. We also offer buyers the option to have solar power.
“The site itself offers breathtaking views of the Northumberland countryside and it sits close to the championship golf course, clubhouse and restaurant so there’s plenty to do on your doorstep as well as exploring the Northumberland coastline and countryside.
“This development will hopefully boost tourism and show people from around the country or even further afield just what our region has to offer.”
