Former Hampshire country house hotel on the market for £2.5m


An historic property in Hampshire that spent some of its life as a luxury hotel has gone on the market for £2.5m.

Headley Park Hotel was first constructed in 1884 and has been extended by various owners over the years.

In the 1950s, the property was acquired by and operated as a community centre, retirement home and finally a sports and social club by a Trust on behalf of the Lithuanian expatriate community.

More recently, the property was used as a weddings venue, for training courses and music festivals.

The property is set in around 40 acres of land with lawns, lakes and woodland, surrounding the building, which comprises 24 bedrooms, a function room, restaurant, bar and staff accommodation.

Adjacent to the main building are various outbuildings with great development potential.

These include a three-bedroom cottage, changing block and gardener’s cottage in the former walled garden.

Located to the far south east corner of the site is a second, disused changing block; historically proposed to service an outdoor swimming pool although the scheme was not started.

The grounds also include a former outdoor training area, previously used by third party organisations preparing their staff for operations in overseas conflict areas.

Paul Barrasford, director of hotels agency, Colliers International, said: “In this affluent corner of the south east, it is rare to find a vacant property as substantial as Headley Park Hotel available for sale. We anticipate the property will appeal to a broad range of buyers including those looking to reopen it as a hotel or redevelop it for, say, residential, educational or healthcare use.”
