A country house hotel in Peebles, Scotland has gone on the market with an asking price of £2.15m.
Cringletie House Hotel is set in 28 acres of land and is home to 13 bedrooms, plus a two-bedroom letting cottage and staff accommodation. The property won the coveted AA Hotel of the Year for Scotland in 2013 and has been under the ownership of Johanna and Jacob van Houdt for the past 14 years.
The pair have given the property an extensive renovation during their ownership, with the business now being a prime example of a Scottish baronial country house hotel.
The site is also home to a 400-year-old walled garden and Dutch styled parterre garden. There is also a large area of land available for development and there have already been plans made for a new letting block, although there is space for luxury lodges or a spa to be provided on the grounds.
Johanna and Jacob van Houdt are keen for the hotel to taken on by a purchaser who sees the potential in the country house. They said: “We did previously trial a confidential marketing approach with a general business agent and we now feel a shift to the specialist hotel marketing department of Christie & Co will generate positive leads from their national and international client base.”
Stuart Drysdale, associate director in the hotel and hospitality department at Christie & Co comments, “Cringletie House is a superb example of a Country House Hotel, and located only 20 miles from Edinburgh is a superb base for visitors to enjoy a country estate in relaxed surroundings. We have had strong initial interest from international buyers and I look forward to marketing this impressive property.”
