The Manor House at Pinchinthorpe, which closed suddenly in March, is now on the hunt for a new owner to revitalise the business.
The hotel shut its doors with ‘immediate effect’ earlier this year, less than a year after reopening following an extensive renovation.
The Grade-II listed Manor House Hotel at Pinchinthorpe relaunched in August 2018 as a new boutique hotel, restaurant and wedding venue having been acquired by John Borthwick in November 2017.
Now the site is on the market with Christie + Co, who says that despite the business not currently in operation, it could be restarted with ‘minimal costs’.
Potential new owners are being offered a “stepped rent or a rent free period” to allow them to build up the business.
The manor house has a L-shaped bistro, which was previously trading as Cliff Rigg restaurant, with adjoining kitchen.
Its six bedrooms include the Cromwell four-poster suite and the William Morris suite.
Fixtures and fittings are available “under separate negotiation”, Christie & Co says.
There’s a large walled garden “to the rear” of the house which is “ideal for the erection of a marquee”.
Christie & Co says: “Pinchinthorpe Hall dates back to the 1600s and has six characterful en suite bedrooms, four impressive formal reception rooms, with a history and charm that are evident throughout the property.
“The stunning backdrop with views of Roseberry Topping, makes it an ideal wedding venue or private hire boutique hotel.
“The famous Roseberry Topping, a 1,000ft high jagged cliff, provides the stunning back drop and can be seen from many rooms within the house as well as from the large lawned, walled garden to the rear.”
Four formal reception rooms include the Lounge, Marble Room, Garden Room and Drawing Room as well as the Butler’s Pantry.
“Other terms such as lease length, break clauses and rent reviews can be agreed subject to tenant experience and status,” the company added.
