Substantial Cumbrian hotel with exceptional rating reduces asking price
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has recently reduced the asking price of a Grade II listed, twelve-bedroom country house hotel located near Brampton in Cumbria, which has just been ranked among the best places to stay by Booking.com reviewers.
The elegant Farlam Hall Country House Hotel is set within 3.5 acres of impressive lawn gardens and woodland, with a stream and ornamental lake. The property boasts 12 luxurious en-suite double bedrooms, two charming guest lounges with open fireplaces, a fully equipped catering kitchen and a 40-cover restaurant. Also featured on the site is ample space for car parking to the front of the premises and two substantial stone buildings with lapsed planning permission to potentially develop into additional accommodation.
Owned and operated by the Quinion family for more than 40 years, the hotel is well-renowned and highly regarded, having been consecutively featured in The Good Hotel Guide for the past 38 years and recently been awarded the Booking.com Guest Reviews Award 2017 certificate after it received a rating of 9.5 out of 10, which is considered as exceptional by the online booking site. The business is also a member of the prestigious and exclusive Relais & Chateaux Association of Independent Hotels and holds a civil wedding licence which represents an area of great potential for future business development.
Farlam Hall offers the perfect location for a rural retreat, ideally situated to explore the stunning local surroundings including Hadrian’s Wall, the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Scottish borders and the rugged landscapes of Western Northumberland. It is also just a few miles from Carlisle Airport which is due to open passenger routes this year for the first time in 25 years, increasing visitor footfall to the area.
Available by separate negotiation are additional residential properties; Laundry Cottage, a recently refurbished detached two-bedroom bungalow ideal for use as owner’s accommodation or as a holiday-let, and Stable House, which comprises a large three bedroom, two bathroom family home with a patio, walled garden, pony paddocks, garage and forecourt parking. Also attached are two large self-contained cottages and a detached double garage with a large bedsit above, with ample parking.
Mark Worley, Director at Christie & Co’s Newcastle office who is handling the sale comments, “Farlam Hall is a wonderful hotel which has been lovingly owned and operated by our clients for many years. Their care and attention to detail shines through with the accolades the hotel has earned and the high quality of the property. With abundant possibilities for further investment and development, plus additional revenue streams, the business provides a lucrative opportunity for the right buyer. There is a healthy demand for country hotels, particularly those which are close to tourist sites, national parks and commercial areas, and can also offer areas of development and expansion – and Farlam Hall ticks all these boxes.”
Farlam Hall Country House Hotel is available through Christie & Co at asking price of £995,000. Our clients will sell either or both Laundry Cottage and Stable House by separate negotiation.
