Hand Picked Hotels acquires Fawlsey Hall in Northamptonshire

Hand Picked Hotels has added Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa near Silverstone in Northamptonshire to its portfolio of what is now 20 country house hotels.

Located within a Grade I listed property dating back to Tudor times, the four-AA-red star, 58-bedroom has been purchased off a guide price of £15m from entrepreneur Simon Lowe, who continues to own Grayshott Hall in Surrey.

It is the latest hotel to join the group, created by former lawyer turned hotelier Julia Hands, following the acquisition of the St Pierre Park Hotel & Golf Resort in Guernsey in June and Bailbrook House Hotel, Bath, which has undergone a £10m restoration since being bought last year.

Set in nine acres of formal gardens and grounds within a landscaped estate designed by Capability Brown, Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa has a two-AA-rosette restaurant - the Equilibrium, a 70-seat bistro, orangery, self-contained conference centre for 120 people, private cinema, and spa with indoor pool, gym and treatment rooms.

Jeremy Jones, director of corporate hotels at Christie + Co, which marketed the property, said that Fawlsey Hall was "an excellent fit" for Hand Picked Hotels. "Fawsley Hall remains one of the finest individual country home hotels in private ownership."
