Four star Oxfordshire guest house with rich history on the market

Corncroft Guest House, situated on the edge of the tourist hotspot, the Cotswolds, in Witney, Oxfordshire, has come to the market through specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.

The AA 4-Star rated guest house provides 11 en suite bedrooms over three floors, as well as a variety of common areas for guests to enjoy such as a breakfast room, lounge and garden.

Operating from a Grade II listed building, the guest house sits at the corner of Crofts and Corn Street, which is where it gains its current name, but the property itself has a rich history. Previously known as ‘Parliament House,’ the building is rumoured to be the site where James I held a Parliament in the 17th century.

Embracing its heritage, Corncroft features Jacobean influenced décor throughout and fits well into the market town of Witney, which is also full of history, with Iron Age and Roman beginnings. Sitting close to the town centre, Corncroft is easily accessible and provides the ideal base for both leisure and corporate guests drawn to Oxfordshire’s many tourist attractions and business hub. 

Current owner, Richard Turner, has owned the Corncroft for 13 years, having redesigned and invested in the guest house over time, building it into a successful business. Mr Turner has now decided to sell in order to pursue other investment opportunities and comments, “The challenge of developing and creating Corncroft has given me an immense sense of achievement and pleasure and will be sorely missed.”

Tom Orchard, Business Agent at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comments, “Corncroft Guest House is extremely well presented, situated close to the High Street of Witney and ideally positioned for easy access to both Oxford and the Cotswolds.”

Christie & Co is marketing the freehold interest of Corncroft Guest House off an asking price of £975,000.
