Jeremy Clarkson ‘punch-up' hotel for sale

Simonstone Hall hotel, made famous after former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson punched one of the BBC show's producers there, has gone up for sale.

The hotel in Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales National Park is on the market for an asking price of £995,000.

It is set in two acres of grounds and has 18 en-suite rooms, a bar, restaurant, and a function facilities.

It also has staff and management accommodation, according to Colliers International, which is marketing the property.

Hotels agency director Peter Bean said: "Owner Michael Cannon bought the hotel in 1996 when he acquired shooting interests in the area. Now that he is moving his sole focus to the Wemmergill Estate in County Durham it is naturally time to hand over the reins at the beautiful Simonstone Hall to new owners."

The incident involving Clarkson precipitated the presenter's departure from the long-running car show.

Clarkson punched producer Oisin Tymon after returning to the hotel from a long day of filming and discovering that the kitchen was closed. Chris Evans has been unveiled as the new presenter of the programme, while Clarkson and fellow former Top Gear presenters Richard Hammond and James May will work on a new show for Amazon Prime.
