Lifestyle Hotels buys country hotel in Yorkshire Moors

The Ox Pasture Hall country hotel near Scarborough has been sold off a guide price of £1.7m to Lifestyle Hotels, a company set up to develop luxury gourmet hotels.

The Grade II-listed, three-star hotel occupies a 17-acre site within the North York Moors National Park complete with garden, paddock and ponds. It attracts a good mix of local, commercial and visitor trade.

It dates back to the mid-18th century and was created from a farmhouse with an attached wing and converted outbuildings forming a central courtyard.

Facilities include 25 en-suite bedrooms to sleep 43, a restaurant to seat 60 diners or 80 function-goers, and a split-level public bar with timbers, exposed stone walls, a stone fireplace with wood-burning stove.

The new, self-contained Dovecote banqueting suite adjacent to the main building will accommodate 150 guests at dining functions.

The business also incorporates a double-bedroom owners' flat, a double-bedroom manager's flat and a double bedroom for staff.

The Leeds office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the property on behalf of Peter and Maggie Fairbairn.
