The Angel in Midhurst, West Sussex, a restaurant and bar with 15 bedrooms, has been put on the market.
Leisure property specialist Fleurets is marketing the freehold off a guide price of £1.6m on behalf of current owner David Whitney who has chosen to sell in order to retire.
The Grade-II listed property dates back to the 17th century and was originally a coaching inn.
Alongside the bar/restaurant the property comprises 15 rooms, a self-catering apartment and has a new wedding licence.
Whitney has been involved with the property since 1992 and then invested in converting the former pub with rooms, previously owned by Gales Brewery Ltd, into a successful boutique hotel.
The hotel was then sold ten years later, with the new owner choosing to reduce the number of bedrooms from 38 to 16.
Whitney repurchased The Angel in 2013 and have since upgraded facilities and increased turnover year on year.
He comments: “I am very proud that our hard work has secured the future of The Angel. However, we are aware that with great opportunities yet to be exploited, the business requires younger hands and minds to carry this wonderful and historic hotel to the next level.”
Nick Earee of Fleurets is handling the marketing and commented: “As well as marketing the freehold, the property is also available on a leasehold tenure, with a guide price of £250,000.”
