£15m price tag for luxury county hotel

Fawsley Hall, a Grade I-listed country house and luxury hotel near Daventry, has been put up for sale for £15 million.

Dating back to the Tudor period, Fawsley Hall comprises a range of properties, including the country house, all of which are set in 2,000 acres of the neighbouring estate’s Capability Brown-landscaped grounds.

It is understood the owners also own the Grayshott Hotel in Surrey and the sale is partly to raise funds for improvements there.

A spokesman for Christies + Co, which is selling the freehold on the buildings on behalf of the owners, said: “It is a profitable hotel business so I would think it will remain a hotel under the next owners too.”

The hotel is a popular upmarket wedding venue. It has 58 bedrooms and suites, a spa, indoor swimming pool and 29-seat private cinema with tiered seating. It is also home to the Equilibrium restaurant.

Jeremy Jones, of Christie + Co, said: “The sheer quality and luxury of Fawsley Hall’s facilities and surroundings, combined with its ease of access to and from London means that the hotel has strong year-round corporate, wedding and leisure trade.

“With its mix of unique historical features with stylish and contemporary facilities, it fully merits its reputation as one of the finest country house hotels in the UK.

“As such it is certain to attract substantial interest from investors both here in the UK and overseas.”
