The Old Manse House hotel, a four-star guesthouse in the Derbyshire spa town of Buxton, has changed hands.
Sally and Simon Howell make their hotel debut with the Victorian semi-detached building that was built in the late 1800s as a family residence.
Other facilities include a public bathroom, a 20-seat dining room and bar, and double-bedroom owners' accommodation across the basement and ground floors.
The Manchester office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold off a guide price of £450,000.
