The Edenhall Country House hotel near Penrith in Cumbria has been sold to Wayne and Paula Williams from Cockermouth.
The two-star hotel is located in the conservation village of Edenhall in the Eden Valley, four miles from the Lake District and just two miles from the M6.
It was partly-built from local red sandstone in the late 1800s and served as a girls' school during Wold War Two before converting to a hotel.
The hotel offers 20 en-suite bedrooms to sleep 36 guests, along with three-bedroom owners' accommodation across two floors, a two-bedroom manager's flat, and four staff bedrooms.
The Manchester office of Colliers Robert Barry was seeking offers in the region of £985,000 for the freehold on behalf of Tony and Clare Simmons.
