Glewstone Court, a hotel, restaurant and wedding venue situated in the Wye Valley, has been brought to the market for a guide price of £1.5m.
Glewstone Court is located in a small hamlet near Ross-on-Wye in the Herefordshire countryside with towns such as Monmouth, Hereford, Gloucester and Cheltenham all within 30 minutes’ drive.
The property houses nine en-suite guest rooms, a large restaurant, bar and lounge and two other private dining rooms or conference and event spaces situated within the Georgian main house and two Regency wings.
The interiors have been decorated in a “refined French Country style” and the secluded grounds have been transformed into landscaped gardens, with a Mediterranean courtyard which has views of the surrounding countryside.
The property was acquired by Gary and Karen Homewood in 2014. Upon purchase the couple embarked on an “extensive five-year renovation programme”, investing significantly to sympathetically modernise the dated Georgian house.
This included structural and electrical repairs, refurbishment of the guest rooms and all common areas and bar, a new commercial kitchen and a significant upgrade of the third-floor suite and extensive owners’ accommodation, which could also be utilised as “additional guest accommodation” with the appropriate authorisations.
Richard Thomas, senior hotels broker at Christie and Co’s hospitality team, who is handling the sale, said: “The market for good quality country assets is fiercely competitive at the moment which is due in the main to a real lack of supply.
“Glewstone Court is a rare example of a traditional family ran business, incorporating a profitable operation with significant room for growth and a real opportunity for a new owner, all in the surroundings of one of the UK’s most idyllic locations.”
