Fawsley Hall, the Grade I-listed country house hotel near Silverstone, is thought to be up for sale for offers exceeding £15m.
The 58-room hotel, which has four AA red stars and two AA rosettes, sits in 2,000 acres of grounds, landscaped by Capability Brown.
The business is currently owned by entrepreneur Simon Lowe, with backing from Indian conglomerate the Poonawalla Group. It is the sister property of Grayshott Hall in Surrey, which lends its name to the Grayshott spa contained within Fawsley Hall. It is thought that the proceeds of any sale of Fawsley Hall would be at least partly invested in Grayshott Hall.
Fawsley Hall has a 70-cover bistro and the fine dining Equilibrium restaurant, as well as a 29-seat private cinema with tiered seating. It also has conferencing and events facilities, as well as a self-contained conference centre for up to 120 people, called Knightley Court.
The property is being marketed by Christie + Co. Jeremy Jones, director of corporate hotels at Christie + Co, said: "Sitting just north of the Cotswolds, the sheer quality and luxury of Fawsley Hall's facilities and surroundings, combined with its ease of access to and from London (from where it is just one-and-a-half hours via the M1 or M40), Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds, means that the hotel has strong year-round corporate, wedding and leisure trade. And with its mix of unique historical features with stylish and contemporary facilities, it fully merits its reputation as one of the finest country house hotels in the UK. As such it is certain to attract substantial interest from investors both here in the UK and overseas."
