The freehold for the Salford Hall Hotel, located in the village of Abbot’s Salford on the Worcestershire-Warwickshire border, has been brought to the market for an asking price of £2.7m.
The hotel is a Grade I listed, AA three star rated hotel, comprising of a former manor house which dates back to the late 15th Century and Tudor Court, a converted granary and barn which dates back to the early 17th Century.
Originally built as a guest house for the monks of nearby Evesham Abbey, the manor house has a “rich heritage” and features many historic features including a 17th Century wall mural, recently uncovered and restored, a hideaway lounge with a secret priest-hole, and the original bell from 1470, which had been stolen and then later returned.
Across the two buildings, the hotel features 36 guest bedrooms, with 15 in the manor house and 21 in Tudor Court, all of which have been updated to feature modern comforts, but still retain original period features such as oak beams, mullioned windows and fireplaces.
Joshua Sullivan, senior business agent at Christie and Co, who is handling the sale, said: “Salford Hall is a classic country manor hotel set in an affluent location which presents a unique opportunity for a first time entrant or an experienced operator to acquire a trophy asset with the ability to add value.
“There is also scope to expand upon the existing leisure, wedding and corporate trade with the addition of 10 further bedrooms and a spa facility which it previously had planning consent for.”
