The Vermont continues to run, despite its parent company’s entry into receivership.

The hotel, which took over the old Northumberland County Hall beside the Castle Keep in 1993 has been a success but in September the 101-room building was put onto the market for £9m.

The Jersey Farm, a popular dining haunt, has been in business since 1976 and has 22 rooms and conference facilities.
