A PIECE OF
The Gosforth Park estate covers approximately 2,000 acres and was owned from about 1509 by wealthy merchants, coal mine and land owners, the Brandling family. Gosforth House was built between 1755 and 1764 for Charles Brandling (1733â€“1802) to a design by renowned architect James Paine. To adorn his new mansion, Brandling laid out Gosforth Park and a 50 acre lake. Charles John Brandling (1769â€“1826), son of Charles Brandling, suffered severe financial problems which resulted in the sale of the estate in 1852.
In 1880, the house was sold with 807 acres to High Gosforth Park Ltd, the company which was formed to establish a racecourse on the estate. Gosforth House is now known as Brandling House, and is the heart of racecourse hospitality and a conference centre. The Walled Gardens formed the centre of horticultural activity at Gosforth House. Historically, the essential function of the walls surrounding a walled garden was to shelter the garden from wind and frost, ensuring protection for the plants and produce being grown there. The walls may have also served
a decorative purpose, evidence of which can still be seen on the pillars leading into the entrance of the estate. The luxurious new properties of North and South Walled Gardens are nestled within the original walls, offering contemporary, spacious living within historical surroundings.

In all cases, existing stonework was retained and great care was taken in the architectural design to work with the historic buildings in planning the best possible modern living spaces, whilst retaining the original grandeur of the original buildings.
Thirteen new properties lie in an idyllic location on the Northumberland coastline, in the historic town of Amble. Made up of seven townhouses and six bungalows, the properties on this development benefit from contemporary living in an historic town. Six of the townhouses have four bedrooms, one has three beds but all properties benefit from two en-suite bathrooms. The bungalows have three bedrooms, the entire top floor accommodating the master bedroom, with cupboard space and an en-suite bathroom. Each property type has gardens and a private driveway. Construction began on this project in 2018.
