Brims Construction appointed for luxury Northumberland holiday development
Jul 11, 2014 16:55 By Robert Gibson


The proposed Northumbrian Hills scheme, on which Brims Construction is taking the lead

The Sunderland-based Brims Construction has been selected to build a new luxury holiday home development near Felton.

Located on Burgham Park Golf Club in Northumberland, Northumbrian Hills will be a 4-star resort consisting of 50 three bedroom stone cottages, pavilion and leisure facilities.

Managing director at Northumbrian Hills, William Kiely, said: “We decided to tender out the construction contract to ensure we got the best team for the job. This will be a four-star resort so we need the build to go as seamlessly as possible. Brims stood out from the rest for its efficiency and professionalism. Plots have already been snapped up so building work will commence as early as next month.”

The development offers an opportunity for those looking to buy a holiday home in the rural countryside. Each cottage will provide 107sq m. with prices starting from £235,000.

Ian Clift, managing director at Brim's said: “We are thrilled to be chosen for this project. We pride ourselves on our top quality service and are excited to get the cottages underway. This is only the first stage of development. The next will see us build a two-storey pavilion which will house bars, restaurants, a fitness suite, spa, swimming pool and much more. The final stage will be the creation of a world-class golf academy with teaching bays and a driving range along with other sports facilities.”

Holiday homes to go ahead

18th July 2014

A four-star holiday-home development has been given the go-ahead with work to start this month.

Northumbrian Hills, on Burgham Park estate near Felton, will offer holiday homes for those wanting to be in rural Northumberland but close to the coast. The homes are part of a multi-staged development with plans also approved for a pavilion with restaurants, bars, leisure facilities plus a 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 107 sq m 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 under-floor heating which can reduce energy consumption by 50 per cent. We also offer buyers the option to have solar power for their property. 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. Once the first 50 plots have been sold, the next phase is to start working on the two-storey pavilion which will provide homeowners with a spa, swimming pool, bars, restaurants and much more to really get you into that relaxed frame of mind. The final stage will be the creation of a world-class golf academy with teaching bays and a driving range along with other sports facilities.”

Works begins on £15m Northumbrian Hills holiday resort development
Aug 20, 2014 14:30 By Tom Keighley


Developer William Kiely and Steve Mudd, site manager for Brims Construction laying the foundations for Northumbrian Hills

Construction has begun on the £15m Northumbrian Hills holiday resort located between Morpeth and Alnwick.

The development, led by Burgham Park Golf Club owner William Kiely, promises 60 jobs across the 235-acre site. The first phase of the works will see 50 four star cottages built within Burgham Park Golf Club near Felton.

Planning was approved last year and following a vigorous tender process, Brims Construction sealed the deal to build the first stage worth £1.5m. The roads to the site are now in place and Brims Construction has laid the foundations to build the first eight cottages that have been bought for £235,000 each. The 3 bedroom two-storey cottages measure 107 sq. metres, and come with a balcony as standard.

Developer William Kiely said: “The interest in the resort has been phenomenal. People from all over the UK seem to want their own piece of Northumberland. As well as holidaying here, the cottages offer great rental opportunity, which is very appealing to many and is undoubtedly great for the region. It is fantastic to finally see the foundations being laid, we have been waiting several years to get to this point so it really is a massive achievement. The first eight units will finished by early February. The remaining cottages will be built as contracts are exchanged. Phase two of the development which will see a luxury pavilion erected to accommodate a restaurant, bars, function rooms, and leisure centre offering a gymnasium, pool and spa. The final phase will also include creation of a world-class golf academy.

Mr Kiely continued: “We always try and recruit locally and being able to create jobs feels wonderful, we will need people to fill a variety of roles including managers, chefs, gym instructors, domestic staff, beauty therapists, administrators and more.”

This is now our 4th actual 'Project Thread' in this Communal Area of the North East England Sub-forum, sandwiched beneath the links to our four big City-led forums, where all the big projects are.

Looking at what is happening in 'rural North Northumberland' at the moment, there may soon be a need for more project threads, you never know!

Anyway, this one has now been added to the Communal Area Development Summary, at the link below . . .

Now all we need is for a forum member from this part of Northumberland to get periodically 'snap-happy' with their camera . . .

First phase of £15m Northumbrian holiday home development complete

First phase of £15m Northumbrian holiday home development complete
Ellen Forster 31 Mar 2015


Burgham Park in Northumberland

Burgham Park Golf Club, a £15 million luxury development, is starting to take shape and it has now opened its doors to the public.

Owner William Kiely began work on the Northumberland development in August 2014 with the first phase of eight three bedroom, two storey stone built cottages getting underway. Once completed, the 235-acre site will boast 50 four-star cottages and new pavilion, restaurant and leisure facilities. The first eight properties are now complete with only four remaining.

Mr. Kiely said: “We are 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 under floor heating which will substantially reduce energy bills. He continued: "We’ve seen an extraordinary interest in the development. The popularity seems to be the location just off the A1 along with the quality of the cottages. I’m sure the new Show Home will give prospective purchasers an insight into the special feel of the development and the beautiful surrounding countryside.

“It’s in a perfect location for golf enthusiasts but with Northumberland having so much to offer should appeal to a much wider audience. The site itself offers breathtaking views of the Northumberland countryside and as is close to the golf course, clubhouse and restaurant - there’s plenty to do on your doorstep as well as exploring the Northumberland coastline and countryside. Once the first 50 plots have been sold, the next phase, is to start working on the two-storey pavilion which will provide homeowners with a spa, swimming pool, bars, restaurants and much more to really get you into that relaxed frame of mind. The final stage will be the creation of a world-class golf academy with teaching bays and a driving range along with other sports facilities.“

Scheme deferred for more details on financial case

From the Northumberland Gazette @ http://www.northumberlandgazette.co....case-1-7248725
Scheme deferred for more details on financial case
12 May 2015


Northumbrian Hills , Burgham Park

An application to build executive homes at Burgham Park was deferred so councillors could be provided with more information on the financial case.

This was because the bid to build 14 detached homes on land next to Burgham Park Golf and Leisure Club, near Felton, would not usually be permitted in an area of open countryside, but it was put forward as an enabling development for the wider unfinished scheme of holiday lodges, known as Northumbrian Hills, as well as a new clubhouse and golf academy.

The permission would have been subject to the completion of an agreement to secure all proceeds from the sale/development of the land being invested into that development, but members of the north area planning committee wanted to see more of the details.

Plans for enabling homes for Burgham Park holiday resort deferred

Plans for enabling homes for Burgham Park holiday resort deferred
08:00, 16 May 2015 By Brian Daniel



Plans for executive homes which are meant to pave the way for a £15m holiday resort in Northumberland have been put on hold a second time.

Bosses at Park Golf and Leisure Club at Felton, between Alnwick and Morpeth, are bidding to build 14 homes to raise money towards the cost of their Northumbrian Hills project. However, the plans have been deferred - as they were last December - to allow the applicants to provide more information.

As previously reported, work has begun on the construction of the project, which promises to create 60 jobs across the 235-acre site. The first phase of the works involves the building of 50 four star cottages built at the site. Phase two of the development will see a luxury pavilion erected to accommodate a restaurant, bars, function rooms, and leisure centre offering a gymnasium, pool and spa. The final phase will include creation of a world-class golf academy.

The club put in an application to Northumberland County Council for 14 homes as an enabling development. The proposal was due to go before a council planning committee in December with an officer recommendation to refuse. However, it was deferred to allow further discussions to take place between the club and officers. The application came back before the council with 11 letters of objection and 22 of support. The county council’s own noise protection team also objected on the basis that the impact of noise from a nearby airfield and an international shooting ground had not been assessed. County council officers recommended approval but their planning committee instead opted to defer to allow the club to provide more information on the type of housing proposed and, in the words of member Gordon Castle, “why it is the second time that the golf club/leisure complex has needed more housing to support them.”

Club boss William Kiely described the decision as “not very satisfactory” but said he hoped the application would be approved at the committee’s next meeting. The proceeds from the enabling development will help us complete the resort quicker. The resort will be a great boost to the tourism offer in Northumberland and will benefit the local economy.” He claimed the resort is supported by Northumberland Tourism and the county council’s tourism department.

Administrators appointed to championship golf course

No doubt this news may finally scupper the proposed development?

From today's insider Media Limited @ http://www.insidermedia.com/insider/...ip-golf-course
Administrators appointed to championship golf course
Matthew Ord 11 November 2016

A North East golf course which has played host to PGA events and was part-designed by a former Ryder Cup captain has entered administration.

Burgham Park is located in Morpeth, Northumberland. It boasts panoramic views of Simonside Hills to the West and the coast to the East, while playing off the championship tees measures the course at 7,065 yards.

Graham Bushby and Steven Ross of RSM Restructuring Advisory were appointed joint administrators of Burgham Park Golf & Leisure Club Ltd on 20 October 2016. The club, which has 300 members that use the course, remains a separate company. The golf course will continue to be maintained as the administrators work with professional advisers to maximise the returns to creditors.

Ross, a restructuring partner at RSM, said: "We have made a decision to close the clubhouse for the winter and we're hopeful that this position will quickly change. We continue to work with our advisers to progress development opportunities for the site, which includes planning permission to build 50 high-quality holiday homes adjacent to the course."

Former Ryder Cup captain Mark James was part of the design team that developed the course in 1994. It comprises four par threes, ten par fours and four par fives, with a total par of 72. Since 2001, it has been under the ownership of Irish businessman William Kiely.

Championship golf course in Northumberland brought out of administration

Championship golf course in Northumberland brought out of administration
By Jonathon Manning 24 March 2017


Burgham Park golf club, Northumberland

A championship golf course in Northumberland has reopened after entering administration last November.

Burgham Park golf course was forced to close its clubhouse for the winter after Burgham Park Golf & Leisure Club Limited called in the administrators at the end of 2016.

The clubhouse, which has 300 members, is now set to be re-opened in early April after being taken over by local professional golfer Kevin Gow. Mr Gow’s professional golfing careers started when he was just 17, after he became an assistant golf professional at Bedlington golf club in 1981. Since then he has worked as a professional golfer at Morpeth golf club and has taught the sport to others in Sweden.

Burgham Park is not the first golf club that Mr Gow has run in the North East. In 2011 he ran Cocken Lodge Golf course, near Durham, for five years before moving on for a short period to manage Whitburn Golf Course. Commenting on his decision to reopen the Northumberland club, Mr Gow said: “This opportunity at Burgham park was far too good a position that I could not say no, otherwise I could have seen myself staying at Whitburn for many years. Whitburn is a very friendly club. They have a very proactive committee whose interest is only in what’s good for the club. In these hard times for private golf clubs, I am confident that this committee, with the help from its members, will have a very long and successful future. We will be bringing the club back to its former glory. What happened in the latter days is that everything has got worn and tired. So we are doing the club house up.”

In addition to revamping the clubhouse, Mr Gow is looking to add a spike bar, where golfers can enter wearing golfing shoes, and a rear conservatory to the building. The business is already looking to hire new staff and is currently recruiting two new cooks. Mr Gow will run the day-to-day activities of the golf club after taking up the leasehold of Burgham Park golf club. He will be assisted by his wife Jacqui, daughters Samantha and Georgia, and younger brother Jason.

The golf club site itself has been bought by local businessman David Armstrong, who is the sole director of Burgham Park Properties Limited. Mr Gow said that Burgham Park Properties is reevaluating plans for a £15m holiday resort near the golf course to see if they are feasible.
