Bull at Burford on the market for £1.25m

The Bull at Burford hotel in Oxfordshire has been brought to market with a price tag of £1.25m as the owner looks to retire.

Jean-Marie and Clare Lauzier bought the business from Greene King in 2009 and set about a major refurbishment, but “after many years in the business” have decided to retire.

With a list of famous visitors including Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton as well as King Charles II and his mistress Nell Gwynne, the Grade II*-listed, 15th-century coaching inn has 18 bedrooms, including three in the former stables and garage at the rear, as well as staff accommodation.

Peter Brunt, a hotels director at Colliers International, which is marketing the property, said: “The 18 rooms provide a solid base for the F&B element, which draws plenty of local as well as one-off visitor custom…

“In addition, the staff accommodation could be converted into five letting rooms – to give 22 rooms in total – subject to the usual planning permissions. The Bull would also readily convert to B&B use for a buyer just looking for a business without a food and beverage offering.”
