Stanton House Hotel brought to market for nearly £6 million

Stanton House Hotel, a 78-bedroom property in Wiltshire, has been brought to the market at £5,950,000.

The detached Cotswold manor, which overlooks a lake in 11 acres of landscaped gardens, has twice been substantially restored.

The original works took place in the 1930s followed by the construction of an additional accommodation building connected by a two-storey conservatory in the 1990s.

“Seven of the 78 bedrooms at Stanton House Hotel are in the original manor house, and the others are in the adjoining Cotswold stone building of more recent construction,” said Matthew Smith, partner in the Hotels team at joint agent Knight Frank.

The property features a number of function rooms, including a restaurant and bar with 110 covers.

Smith added: “This room overlooks the hotel grounds which include a lake, an orchard, a rose garden and formal gardens from the original manor house, which were reputedly laid out by the garden designer Gertrude Jekyll.

“In addition, there is a main function room which can accommodate up to 110 guests and is popular for weddings and large conferences, plus three smaller rooms that are used for meetings and functions.”

Peter Brunt, director in the Hotels Agency team at global real estate advisor Colliers International said that the hotel is “a hidden gem” that combines “traditional charm with accessibility.

“It is superbly located off a tree-lined avenue in the picturesque village of Stanton Fitzwarren, just north of the commercial hub of Swindon and to the south of Cirencester and the lakes of Cotswold Water Park, and within convenient reach of Oxford and Cheltenham.”

He added: “This makes it ideal for both the business market and for flourishing staycation market as it is ideally located for those seeking a base from which to explore the Cotswolds.”
