Situated on the Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex borders, Lythe Hill Hotel is positioned about two miles from Haslemere and approximately four miles from the A3, which links London to the South Coast. The main hotel is comprised of a unique collection of converted farm barns, cattle sheds, milking parlours and stalls. The Grade II Listed Tudor House, which incorporates The Old Room and the restaurant, is steeped in history, dating back to 1475 with an abundance of original period features.

The historic hotel comprises 41 en-suite bedrooms and two private suites, three conference/function rooms, an 84-cover restaurant, and an afternoon tea lounge which sits an additional 30 covers. The Amarna Spa includes five treatment rooms, pedicure, steam room and sauna with the health club providing a 16m indoor swimming pool with gym and changing facilities. Further facilities within the grounds include a helicopter pad and tennis court.

The hotel is also a popular choice for weddings, with three indoor and outdoor spaces on offer, including a ballroom for 150 guests and a picturesque wedding pagoda in the landscaped grounds.

In recent years the property has undergone extensive renovations and refurbishment and the new owner will continue this investment to maintain the luxury hotel resort accommodation and facilities.

Ed Bellfield, Regional Director in Christie & Co’s Hotels team, who brokered the deal comments, “The sale of Lythe Hill Hotel represented a rare opportunity to acquire a hotel in an enviable location close to the South Downs National Park and within easy reach of London. Together with the planning consent, this provides huge scope to increase the business further.

“The open marketing campaign generated significant interest and we received multiple offers for the hotel which reflects the current activity in the hotel sector. This is being driven by renewed demand from both the staycation leisure/wedding market and the re-emergence of the corporate sector.”
