The Feathers, near Blenheim Palace World Heritage site in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, has been sold for an undisclosed price.
The Grade-II listed 21-bedroom hotel has been acquired by a private purchaser and has been sold by the Munir family who have owned the property sine 1997.
It was brought to the market by Colliers with a guide price of £2.75 million in July 2020.
The Feathers was previously renamed and expanded by hotelier Gordon Campbell Gray around four decades ago and is the sister property to Lords of the Manor in the Cotswolds.
Peter Brunt, director in Hotels Agency at Colliers, said the sale had ‘understandably attracted keen interest from a range of potential purchasers’.
He said: “Understandably, we received keen interest from a range of potential purchasers attracted by the strength of the business operated since 1999 by the private vendor, as well as the potential for the business to be developed further under new ownership.
“The Cotswolds has traditionally been an area in which well-located hotels and pubs are in high demand, and all the signs are that demand is set to intensify as the country moves out of lockdown and UK staycations become increasingly sought after.”
The Feathers is particularly renowned among gin drinkers for its collection of the spirit, for which it was awarded a Guinness World Record in 2012 for the largest collection of gin, with 161 varieties, which took judges 45 minutes to count.
