Coombe Cross hotel on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park, has been sold off a guide price of £1.4m.
The south-facing Edwardian property, which has traded as a hotel since the 1950s, sits on high ground on the edge of Bovey Tracey, a town that dates back to Saxon times and is regarded as a gateway to the national park.
It is just 12 miles from the South Devon coast.
Along with 23 en-suite bedrooms, it offers a 45-seat dining room, a 75-capacity function room, two residents' lounges, a bar, and a one-bedroom self-contained owners' flat.
Leisure facilities include a heated indoor swimming pool, spa bath, sauna, solarium and fitness suite. The grounds provide formal mature gardens, a patio, and car parking.
Coombe Cross enjoys strong repeat business throughout the year and attracts commercial trade during the week.
The Exeter branch of Knight Frank sold the freehold to Andrew and Elaine Jones on behalf of Simon Tennant.
