Christie & Co bring to market classic B&B hotel at highest point in the Cotswolds
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has brought to market Cleeve Hill Hotel, a luxury bed and breakfast situated in the exclusive suburb of Cleeve Hill, Cheltenham, which is renowned as the highest point in the Cotswolds due to its stunning outlook to the Malvern Hills.
The attractive Edwardian building dates back to the early 1900’s, when it was constructed under the ownership of Mr Petty and his family. At the time, Cleeve Hill was considered a resort destination having been created by the leading businessmen of Cheltenham as an area to relax away from the hustle and bustle of Victorian Cheltenham.
Today, the area continues to draw in large number of visitors looking to enjoy the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and all Gloucestershire has to offer. Just five miles from the thriving town of Cheltenham, the hotel benefits from an ideal elevated position within the region and has stunning panoramic views of the Malvern Hills and surrounding local countryside. The famous Cotswold Way National Trail also runs along the back of the property. With many local wedding venues, sports events and conference facilities in the area, the hotel is in the perfect location for leisure and businesses guests alike.
The distinctive sandstone building has been subject to a number of upgrades in recent years, including the addition of a new kitchen and boot room extension to the rear and ongoing refurbishment work throughout. The accommodation currently comprises thirteen individually styled, spacious ensuite rooms across three floors, each with views across the Severn Vale to the Malverns and Black Mountains or Cleeve Common itself. In addition, there is substantial owners accommodation situated on the ground floor which has been recently refurbished and would suit a buyer looking for a lifestyle opportunity and breath-taking views.
Lindsey Holland, the current owner comments, “I was stunned by the Edwardian beauty and original features of Cleeve Hill Hotel, and ‘that’ view. The past three years have been a whirlwind and I’ve loved every moment of working on the refurbishment of the hotel to bring her up to date. The guests, neighbours, suppliers and producers have been a joy to work with and very knowledgeable about their fields. Whilst operating the hotel alone was possible in previous years, health developments this year have caused me to make the decision to leave the hotel, to continue to blossom with new owners.”
Richard Thomas, Business Agent in Christie & Co’s Hotels team is handling the sale and comments, “Cleeve Hill Hotel is a fantastic investment opportunity for an experienced hotelier and those looking for a change of lifestyle. The views on offer are truly idyllic and with the commercial and cultural hub of Cheltenham just moments away, and the world-famous Cotswold Way running right behind, there is plenty of demand for quality accommodation in the area. There are plenty of opportunities for the new owner to grow trade, utilising the high foot fall from the famous Cotswold Way footpath, used by over 1,000,000 people every year, or the Food and Beverage offerings within the Hotel. We expect the potential Cleeve Hill Hotel has will appeal to a range of speculative buyers.”
