A country house hotel in Cumbria has gone up for sale with an asking price of £3m, which includes planning consent for the conversion of a barn on site.
Savills is selling Lovelady Country House Hotel on behalf of Peter and Marie Haynes, who have owned the Georgian property for the past two decades.
The hotel is being sold with planning permission in place for a refurbishment and additional development, which could see 38 holiday lets created and the introduction of leisure and spa facilities.
The property is home to 12 bedrooms and a 2 AA Rosette restaurant headed up by chef Tom Orton.
Lovelady Country House Hotel comes with consent to transform barn accommodation on site into 22 holiday lets, with a further 16 new-build holiday homes also on the cards.
Tom Cunningham, hotels director at Savills, said: “It is extremely rare for a period country house in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to come to market with planning permission for further development secured.
“This is therefore an exciting opportunity for new owners to significantly enhance income streams.
“The property has long been part of the area’s history and will remain so, with any refurbishment works taking this into account.”
