Gosforth Hall, a Grade-II listed 17th century hotel in the Lake District, is on the hunt for a new owner.
The property has come to market through Christie + Co with a guide price of £1.8m.
The hotel has been owned and operated by Rod and Barbara Davies for the last 18 years, who are now seeking retirement.
Gosforth Hall comprises 19 bedrooms, six of which are located in the main property with the remaining 13 housed within a modern purpose-built annex.
The building retains a wealth of original features such as sandstone walls, wooden beams, and fireplaces.
Gosforth Hall also has an extensive food and beverage offering with a dedicated bar snug, separate resident’s lounge for 18 patrons, and a further restaurant accommodating 36 diners.
Furthermore, a Mediterranean style walled garden with its own dedicated bar and barbeque provides al fresco drinking and dining during the summer months.
Alistair Greenhalgh, director at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale comments: “During their tenure Rod & Barbara have invested significantly in Gosforth Hall, tastefully updating the guest accommodation whilst retaining many attractive original features. The diversified income from both the letting accommodation and the food & beverage trade, coupled with the picturesque location, which provides an ideal base for exploring the Lake District National Park, makes Gosforth Hall attractive to a wide variety of potential purchasers.”
