Historic hotel closes after 39 years in business


An historic hotel in Nottinghamshire has closed its doors and been put up for sale after trading for the last 39 years.

Brookhouse Hotel, located in the centre of the village of Rolleston, has been put on the market for £695,000 and is currently being advertised for several uses including a care home.

The Grade-II listed Georgian property is set in approximately three acres and is home to 20 en suite bedrooms as well as a number of out buildings including gardens and a paddock.

The original building dates back to 1690 when it was first constructed as a farmhouse before being converted into a hotel in 1976 with a conservatory added in 1988.

Brookhouse Hotel has traded as a hotel ever since, enjoying strong trade from locals and boasting a profitable F&B operation.

Speaking to Burton Mail, Stephen Sanderson, chairman of Rolleston Parish Council, said: "It is a very historic building that has value in the village and we would prefer to see it having an active use and be maintained."

An online statement from estate agents Rightmove said: "The sale represents a fantastic opportunity to acquire a substantial Georgian building and large area of land which would be suitable for a number of uses – subject to planning permission. While the existing layout of the property lends itself to be redeveloped as a boutique hotel, other suitable uses could include residential development or perhaps as a care home and any number of other specialist uses subject to planning permission."
