New owners for Minehead hotel

Kildare Lodge, a character hotel in the busy Somerset seaside resort of Minehead, has been sold to Harvey and Sarah Pyle as their first venture into hospitality.

The Grade II-listed property, built in 1907 as a private dwelling, was influenced in design by famous architect Sir Edward Lutyens.

Minehead - known as the "gateway to Exmoor" - benefits from a harbour, sandy beaches and a promenade.

Facilities include 12 en-suite bedrooms, a 32-seat restaurant with an adjoining 22-seat breakfast room, a 38-seat bar lounge with side lounge, and a one-bedroom maisonette and three-bedroom cottage to the rear.

The Exeter office of Christie + Co sold the freehold off a guide price of £650,000 on behalf of Dennis and Joan Casey.
