Christie & Co bring to market Manor House in Fenwick, Northumberland

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, is pleased to bring to market, Manor House, an exclusive hire, self-catering holiday home located in Fenwick, near Berwick-upon-Tweed.


Set in the idyllic and peaceful village of Fenwick, the private holiday home is a well-placed choice for guests looking to visit a number of nearby Northumberland heritage spots including Cheswick Sands, Berwick upon Tweed, Bamburgh, Seahouses, Beadnell, Craster, Dunstanburgh, Embleton and Alnmouth, making it a popular spot for visitors seeking a staycation. Warkworth Castle and the market town of Alnwick are also within easy reach, whilst Holy Island lies just five miles to the north east, drawing in approximately 650,000 visitors each year.

The extensively refurbished and immaculately presented holiday let comprises six bedrooms, sleeping a combined 14 guests and offers extensive living and entertainment space.

The current owner, Lee Fairless has made the decision to sell in order to pursue other business interests within the hospitality sector. They comment, “We previously sold our hotel business through Christie & Co and know that they’re very active in the market. They have sold lots of businesses in Northumberland recently, as well as other guesthouse/B&B businesses in the wider region so we’re confident they will find the right buyer for the property.”

The sale of Manor House at Fenwick presents a fantastic opportunity for an experienced operator to purchase a high-quality holiday let as part of an established business. The property enjoys steady business and many forward bookings due to its ideal location, which allows guests to experience the best that Northumberland has to offer.

Since 2018, Northumberland has been one of the fastest growing regions in terms of popularity for staycations, so a new owner could look to capitalise on this trend. The property would lend itself to being occupied as a residential home and could even be adapted to operate as a more traditional bed & breakfast model to increase occupancy.

David Cash, Associate Director in Christie & Co’s Newcastle office is managing the sale and comments, “We are currently seeing increased demand from purchasers for hospitality businesses at the coast and in the countryside as many buyers look for an alternative lifestyle, whilst capitalising on the success of such businesses as staycations gather popularity post COVID-19. As a company, Christie & Co have agreed 55 new deals on hospitality businesses since April 2020, 35 of which were in the North of England and Scotland, so we expect a great deal of interest in Manor House.”

Manor House is being sold off an asking price of £675,000 for the freehold interest.
