Grade-II listed The Burgoyne Hotel in the North Yorkshire Dales has gone up for sale for £850k, bringing a popular celebration venue to the market.
The Georgian property, which dates back to 1783, in located within the Yorkshire Dales National Park at the top of the village of Reeth in Swaledale, and features 10 bedrooms across three floors.
There is also a restaurant with commercial kitchen, lounge and drawing room, all boasting a rich history.
Responsible for the sale are Savills and Fox Grant, with Tom Cunningham from Savills saying that the historic hotel offers incoming owners ‘numerous opportunities to enhance long-term income’.
He also stated that the mid-week corporate side of the business could be developed, as well as the extension of restaurant hours and opening over Christmas when it has been previously closed.
The hotel is named after Mrs Burgoyne-Johnson, a character who owned the building during the 1920s, with her family crest still featured on the fire place in the drawing room today.
The property was later requisitioned by the RECE regiment in WW2 as a base to train soldiers in what was to become the SAS.
A popular wedding and celebration venue, the hotel is also well-used by parties coming to shoot over the famous grouse moors as well as cyclists, walkers, bird watchers, film crews and visitors attending local events including The Swaledale Festival, The Reeth Show and the Leyburn 1940’s weekend.
William Grant, managing director at Fox Grant, comments: “The Burgoyne is a charming hotel in a stunning location which attracts tourists throughout the year. There’s currently multiple income streams which offer great potential to be increased. The Burgoyne would make an ideal lifestyle or investment opportunity for the new owners.”
