Nunsmere Hall purchased by ‘ambitious’ company

Nunsmere Hall, a Cheshire manor house located near Northwich, has been purchased by Highwater Estates Ltd., a family-run company that also owns nearby Peckforton Castle.

The deal, which is worth £5.35m, comes after the hotel’s previous owners, Prima Hotels Ltd., went into administration in May, which directly resulted in the sale of three of their other properties in England.

The hotel has 36-bedrooms, a two-rosette restaurant, conference and events facilities, and also hosts weddings.

Highwater’s Chris Naylor is planning a ‘tasteful’ and ‘unobtrusive’ refurbishment of the Edwardian property.

“We're very proud to take over such an historic building. Nunsmere Hall has huge potential and we’re all extremely excited,” he said.

“Having spent ten years building a very successful hotel with Peckforton Castle, we’re confident we can transform Nunsmere Hall too. Our Peckforton business model is fully transferable to Nunsmere and we have ambitious plans to make improvements.”

The hotel will remain in operation whilst the renovation work takes place, but it will not disturb the guests.

Naylor said: “We’ll be investing in order to enhance the property's already-significant appeal, focusing on making the interiors look less tired while avoiding any major construction work or disruption to guests.

“Simply put, we want to give Nunsmere the tender loving care it deserves.”
