The Angel Inn at Bowness on Windermere has been sold to The Inn Collection Group for an undisclosed sum.
The venue, which houses 13 guest bedrooms, is located at the popular tourist destination in Cumbria.
A 12-room bed and breakfast property alongside The Angel Inn has also been purchased by the group, with plans for both buildings to continue trading before a “substantial refurbishment” is carried out on both sites.
Sean Donkin, managing director at The Inn Collection Group, said: “The Angel Inn is a unique asset in an absolutely outstanding location. We are excited to be adding it to our portfolio, broadening our customer base and enhancing our award-winning offering in Cumbria further with this stunning addition to our collection.
“The completion on both of these sites is the result of great working relationships with fantastic vendors and marks months – if not years – of searching for landmark sites in superb locations like this, as we continue to grow as a company despite the ongoing challenges of the pandemic.”
He added: “We will continue to welcome customers at the inn until planned renovations begin and look forward to reopening as we respond to increased demand for staycation visitations and a predicted rise in domestic travel due to the combined effect of Covid and Brexit.”
