A four AA star hotel located in what has been described as a ‘tourist hotspot’ in Yorkshire has gone up for sale with an asking price of £1.5m.
The Aysgarth Falls Hotel, situated in the village of Aysgarth, dates back to the mid 18th century and is set in five acres of grounds above Aysgarth Falls.
Current owners, Steve and Heather Swann, bought the property back in June 2010 when it was then known as Palmer Flatt Hotel.
As well as changing to its more apt current name, the couple renovated and refurbished the property to create 13 bedrooms, a pub, dining space and conservatory restaurant and outdoor terrace.
Steve and Heather both have a wealth of experience in the hotel and pub sector previously owning and operating Keld Bunkhouse and the longer established Park House Campsite in Swaledale, and The Castle Inn pub.
The hotel was featured in the film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, which starred Kevin Costner and in the 1992 version of Wuthering Heights.
This has helped bring a substantial amount of trade to the area since.
Mark Worley, director at Christie & Co who is handling the sale comments, “This is an excellent coaching inn/hotel, beautifully situated among stunning fells and pretty valleys, presented to a very high standard. As well as this, the business is highly profitable, so the new buyer will not only have a wonderful way of life, they will also make a lot of money too.”
