Manor House brought to market

Manor House, near Berwick-upon-Tweed, has been brought to market off an asking price of £650,000 for a freehold interest. 

The exclusive hire, self-catering holiday home located in Fenwick is a “well-placed choice” for guests looking to visit nearby heritage spots including Cheswick Sands, Berwick upon Tweed, Bamburgh, Seahouses, Dunstanburgh and Alnmouth.

According to Christie and Co, who will oversee the sale, its proximity to these destinations has made it popular with guests planning a staycation this year.

The extensively refurbished let features six bedrooms, as well as an extensive living and entertainment space. 

The current owner, Lee Fairless has decided to sell the property in order to pursue other business interests within the hospitality sector. 

He said: “We previously sold our hotel business through Christie and Co and know that they’re very active in the market. 

“They have sold lots of businesses in Northumberland recently, as well as other guesthouse/B&B businesses in the wider region so we’re confident they will find the right buyer for the property.”

According to Christie and Co, the sale of Manor House now “presents a fantastic opportunity for an experienced operator to purchase a high-quality holiday let as part of an established business”. 

It added: “The property enjoys steady business and many forward bookings due to its ideal location, which allows guests to experience the best that Northumberland has to offer.”

David Cash, associate director in Christie and Co’s Newcastle office, said: “We are currently seeing increased demand from purchasers for hospitality businesses at the coast and in the countryside as many buyers look for an alternative lifestyle, whilst capitalising on the success of such businesses as staycations gather popularity post COVID-19. 

“As a company, Christie and Co have agreed 55 new deals on hospitality businesses since April 2020, 35 of which were in the North of England and Scotland, so we expect a great deal of interest in Manor House.”
