Grade-II listed hotel Boscundle Manor has gone up for sale with a guide price of £1.1m.
The extensively-refurbished property in Cornwall’s ‘Poldark country’, dates back to the 18th century, first opening as a hotel in 1978, and is currently graded three AA Silver stars.
The hotel has been under the ownership of David and Sharon Parker since 2002, with the 13-bedroom property now generating circa 30 per cent adjusted net profit.
David Parker said he considers Boscundle Manor to be a ‘turnkey operation’ for new owners to ‘buy, move in and run’ following a recent full refurbishment of the building and a complete service team.
The property is also home to a one-bedroom apartment with a kitchen, dining area and lounge. There is also a spa treatment room, two AA Rosette restaurant, a bar and an additional conservatory.
Boscundle Manor is said to have been built as two attached houses with detached barns. It was once home to the mine captain of Wheal Eliza, the 13th largest – and one of the more prosperous – tin mines in the whole of Cornwall
The hotel is situated in 1.3 acre grounds which feature a croquet lawn and a gazebo licensed for civil wedding ceremonies, plus a guest bar, hot tub and indoor pool. There is also a fountain terrace which makes a popular destination for marquee events.
Ed Jefferson from Colliers International said: “In addition to the many surrounding attractions, the new owners will also have the opportunity to expand wedding bookings, which have been lightly traded more recently.”
There is also an adjoining residential property which may be available by separate negotiation.
