A few weeks ago, we began a new series called Anglophiles in the Isles. In the current issue of New Orleans Bride Magazine, travel editor Becca Hensley brings readers to the mountains, shores and cities of an Anglophile’s dream.
Last week, we highlighted Helen’s Tower in Northern Ireland. This midevil marvel was full of romantic interiors and scenic views.
This week we head to the lush, 30-acre estate of Middleton Hall in northeast England.
Home to Hadrian’s Wall, historic Northumberland, in northeast England, abounds in natural beauty. On the grounds of centuries-old Middleton Hall, on a country estate that stretches across 30-acres, the airy boathouse stands on stilts above a small lake. With panoramic windows that embrace wildlife (such as otters and birds), this tucked-in-the-woods cottage includes a nostalgic, flat-bottomed rowboat. Don ribboned straw hats and paddle across the lake for a picnic on the property.
