Kelham Hall stately home to become luxury hotel

Former stately home Kelham Hall is to be refurbished in to a luxury hotel, due to open next year.

The Grade I listed building in Nottinghamshire was bought by Kelham Hall Company in November 2014 from Newark and Sherwood District Council, which previously used the building as its headquarters.

The council originally put the hall up for sale in 2012 for £5m, but dropped it to £2.5m in February 2014.

Planning permission was granted on 1 December to turn the home in to a hotel, spa and wedding venue.

Kelham Hall was built in 1863. In the 1920s the Great Chapel (now the Kelham Dome) was added where weddings are now held.

Jonathan Pass, head of the Kelham Hall Company, also owns Charlotte House in Lincoln, Nent Hall in Cumbria, Bail House hotel also in Lincoln, and Hollingwood Hall in Chesterfield.
