Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co is selling Glewstone Court Country House a Grade II listed historic manor house and family run award-winning hotel, restaurant and wedding venue situated in the Wye Valley, an area of natural beauty.
Glewstone Court, located in a small hamlet near Ross-on-Wye, is close to the M50 motorway.
This boutique hotel has been the pride and passion of the current owners, Gary and Karen Homewood since they acquired the property in 2014. The couple embarked on an extensive five-year renovation programme, investing significantly to sympathetically modernise the dated Georgian house, to restore it to its former glory. 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.
The property now comprises nine en-suite guest rooms, a large restaurant, bar and lounge and two other private dining rooms / 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 beautifully landscaped gardens, with a Mediterranean courtyard which has stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
Gary and Karen Homewood said: “After seven incredible years at Glewstone Court, we have decided to take a step back in order to spend more time with our children and grandchildren. This decision ultimately presents a rare opportunity to acquire a unique and popular venue with significant potential for further development to increase income streams. We sincerely hope that we can find the right buyer to build on the solid foundations we have laid and continue the great relationships which we have forged whilst enjoying an enviable lifestyle in the stunning Wye Valley.”
Richard Thomas, Senior Hotels Broker in Christie & Co’s Hospitality team is handling the sale and adds, “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.”
Glewstone Court Country House is on the market on a freehold basis with a guide price of £1,500,000.
