The Burford House hotel in the Cotswold village of Burford, Oxon, has been bought by Thomas Peter Hawkins for his son Ian and chef-partner Stewart Dunkley to operate.
It provides eight en-suite bedrooms to sleep 16, including three four-poster bedrooms and a suite that has been used in the past by the owners.
Other facilities include a sitting room with a large, stone-surround fireplace, an 18-seat dining room, and the Garden Room lounge whose French windows open onto the courtyard garden to the rear.
The accommodation-led business made a trading profit of £105,419 on a net turnover of £288,173 in the year to 31 March 2007
The new operators plan to expand the lunchtime menu and introduce evening meals using local and organic produce.
The Cirencester office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold off a guide price of £1.15m.
