Devil’s Bridge hotel with wealth of history up for sale


A hotel in the village of Devil’s Bridge, Ceredigion that has a long history dating back to 1700s has now gone on the market for £595,000.

The Hafod Hotel, up for sale with Christie + Co, started life as a hunting lodge over three centuries ago, before the building was extended and reconfigured into a distinctive Swiss-style chateau by the Duke of Newcastle in the 19th century.

The period property still retains many of its original features and serves both the local and visitor markets as a traditional country 16-bedroom hotel.

The Hafod Hotel also comprises a restaurant, tea room/function room which can seat up to 100 guests, a bar, large car park and extensive grounds of approximately 7.7 acres.

Situated in an area of natural beauty in the Cambrian Mountains, Devil’s Bridge village is renowned worldwide for its waterfalls and three stacked bridges.

The hotel’s setting has seen it recently feature in the award winning BBC drama Hinterland which has attracted visitors from all over the world.

John Coggins of Christie + Co’s Cardiff office who is handling the sale, comments: “The Hafod Hotel is a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to acquire a substantial country house hotel in a location that is truly unique. The business enjoys healthy levels of trade but offers significant scope to grow turnover and profitability by improving the food and beverage offering and further developing the events trade”.

Christie + Co is seeking offers of £595,000 for the freehold interest in The Hafod Hotel.
