Johanna and Jacob van Houdt have owned and operated the hotel for 14 years and have taken great delight in calling Cringletie their own. Extensive renovations have been made to the property and this is a truly excellent example of a Scottish Baronial Country House Hotel. The hotel was the winner of the coveted AA Hotel of The Year Scotland award in 2013.
The gardens at Cringletie are a delight for everyone from the woodlands in front of the house to the 400 year old walled garden and the Dutch styled parterre garden. Paths give access to all parts of the grounds while the large parcel of land provides potential for development and there have been plans made for a new letting block , although there is space for luxury lodges or a spa to be provided on the grounds.
The owners have lovingly operated the hotel for over 14 years and are looking towards retirement. They are keen for the hotel to taken on by a purchaser who sees the potential in this impressive country house. Mr and Mrs Van Houdt comment, “We did previously trial a confidential marketing approach with a general business agent and we now feel a shift to the specialist hotel marketing department of Christie & Co will generate positive leads from their national and international client base.”
Stuart Drysdale, Associate Director in the Hotel and Hospitality department at Christie & Co comments, “Cringletie House is a superb example of a Country House Hotel, and located only 20 miles from Edinburgh is a superb base for visitors to enjoy a country estate in relaxed surroundings. We have had strong initial interest from international buyers and I look forward to marketing this impressive property.”
Cringletie House Hotel is for sale off an asking price of £2.15M.
