Bespoke-managed Cornwallis hotel closed and up for sale

The Bespoke-managed Cornwallis country house hotel in Brome on the Suffolk/Norfolk border has closed, as the building's owners put it up for sale.

The hotel, which dates from Tudor times with Georgian extensions, has a total of 16 en-suite rooms.

The sale of the property, which sits in 17 acres and was originally built for the local Cornwallis family, is on the market with TW Gaze of Diss.

TW Gaze Licenced Trade Consultant, Alan Crowest, said: "I have known the Cornwallis for more than 30 years, since it was the Oaksmere Hotel. Currently traded under management, the owners have now decided that the business does not fit their operational model.

"With 16 en-suite bedrooms in the main building and coach house, degrees of scale dictate that management, with its incumbent overheads, is possibly not the best way forward. I believe that experienced entrepreneurial hoteliers, possibly a family, would succeed. Alternatively a five-star restaurant with rooms could be attractive."

The property has a 70-cover restaurant, conservatory, breakfast room and, 16 rooms, and is licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships.
