A first-time private buyer from London has snapped up Marsh Farm hotel in Wiltshire for close to the £3.6m asking price.
The Grade II-listed building is a former Victorian farmhouse that has been converted into a hotel and restaurant with extensive conference and banqueting facilities.
It is set in a three-acre site near Wootton Bassett and Swindon and its location one-and-a-half miles from Junction 16 on the M4 provides easy access to several major cities, towns and employment centres.
The three-star property has 50 individual en-suite bedrooms, a 60-seat conservatory restaurant, and a fully licensed bar and lounge.
Its two banqueting/conference suites can accommodate up to 120 and 100 people respectively, while five other meeting rooms can variously cater for between 15 and 30 delegates.
The Bristol office of Christie & Co handled the sale on behalf of the previous owner, Tim Turner.
