Popular North Wales hotel, restaurant & wedding venue offered for sale for the first time in 28 years by Christie & Co
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market Plas Hafod Hotel, a stunning 18th Century Grade II Listed manor house set within 6.8 acres of landscaped grounds, close to the North Wales village of Gwernymynydd near Mold.
The magnificent hotel, which affords panoramic views across the surrounding countryside, currently comprises 11 elegantly presented and individually designed en suite bedrooms, each of which has its own period furniture, fireplaces and features.
Trading from the property’s impressive conservatory is the ‘Greenhouse Restaurant’, which focusses on fresh, seasonal and local produce and accommodates up to 80 diners. It is complemented by the lounge, library room, and private dining room which together seat a further 64 patrons. Plas Hafod also benefits from a purpose built modern extension which houses the ‘Pavilion Suite’ a dedicated function room that can host up to 200 guests and is a popular wedding venue. Externally, parking for up to 80 vehicles further enhances the business’ suitability as a drinking, dining, and events setting.
Plas Hafod has been owned and operated by the Buckley family for the past 28 years, and they have obtained planning permission for the construction of an additional 30 letting bedrooms, which presents potential purchasers with the opportunity to significantly expand the guest accommodation on offer. Simon Buckley comments, “Though my parents are selling the business after almost 30 years in order to retire, the weddings and events aspect of the business remains integral. With that in mind myself and my wife Collette will be on hand to facilitate the events already booked and to ensure a smooth transition.”
Keith Stringer, Director at Christie & Co, is handling the sale and comments, “Plas Hafod presents potential purchasers with a rare combination; an extensive period property in beautiful surroundings, an established trading business with an excellent reputation, and existing planning to substantially expand the hotel. It’s not often that an opportunity such as this one comes to the market and we expect to see interest from a range of buyers.”
Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £2,000,000 for the freehold interest of Plas Hafod Hotel.
