A 200 year-old Georgian manor house hotel in the Lincolnshire village of Washingborough has been sold for an undisclosed sum.
The Washingborough Hall Hotel, a 12 en-suite bedroom manor house, has been owned and run by the Warren family who have now decided to retire temporarily from the hospitality trade.
Although offers were sought in excess of £1.25m, the hotel has been sold for an undisclosed sum to the Herring family, who agents Christie and Co say are known for their business acumen in the area.
Sam Spencer, from Christie and Co’s Nottingham Office who handled the sale, said: “The Herring family formerly owned a pub in the area, which they developed from a poorly trading business and sold to a corporate operator. The family is well connected within the local agricultural community.”
Washingborough Hall Hotel is situated in secluded landscaped grounds two miles away from Lincoln, and includes a swimming pool, croquet lawn, 40-cover restaurant, function room, residents lounge and bar, a conference room and a board room. The property also includes a self-contained four-bedroom owner’s house at the rear of the property, while a one-bedroom manager’s flat is situated on the ground floor of the hotel.
