Barnsdale Hall hotel in Rutland has been put up for sale for £10m.

The 66-bedroom hotel also has 31 lodges, 18 apartments, 11 function suites, four bars and restaurants, as well as leisure and spa facilities and a swimming pool.

The lakeside resort, which sites in 55 acres of gardens and grounds, was reputedly the family hunting lodge of the sixth Earl Fitzwilliam, where he hosted royalty, including Edward, the late Duke of Windsor.

Matthew Smith, partner at property agent Knight Frank, which is marketing the property, said: “Over the years Barnsdale Hall Hotel has been transformed into a thriving resort business with income derived from the private leisure, wedding, events and corporate markets.

“Under the current ownership, 49 timeshare lodges and apartments have been developed - 31 lodges and 18 apartments. All leases expire in August 2028 and vacant possession will revert to the incumbent freeholder giving them an additional 113-bedrooms from which to generate additional revenue and enable the new owner to reposition the business. The site also has planning permission to construct an additional 36-guest bedrooms and nine staff bedrooms.”
