Former care home owners buy South Downs hotel

Former care home owners John and Pat Parsons have acquired the Chequers hotel in the South Downs of West Sussex.

The period property, which was built in 1548, overlooks the Arun Valley from its position on a sandy ridge to the north of Pulborough and to the east of the A29.

The Chequers hotel has a three-star, one-rosette AA rating and enjoys year-round trade.

It comprises 11 letting bedrooms, along with a restaurant and a conservatory brasserie with a combined 50 seats which double as function rooms for weddings, business lunches and conferences.

Additional seating is offered in lounge bar areas and patio areas in the side and rear gardens.

The Winchester office Christie + Co sold the hotel on behalf of previous owner Kevin McCluskie.
