Two hotels owned by entrepreneur Peter de Savary and his wife Lana are to be expanded.
The eight-bedroom Cary Arms hotel overlooking Babbacombe Bay, Devon, will see the addition of six beach hut bedrooms alongside a new spa with two treatment rooms and a plunge pool.
Due to be completed by mid-summer, the bedrooms will have an English seaside design with a balcony and decking area.
A new pontoon is also to be introduced, enabling guests to visit the Carey with their own boats.
Meanwhile, the 60-bedroom Old Swan & Minster Mill is to add six new suites on the site of an original grist mill spanning across the River Windrush. The de Savarys have also acquired Swan Cottage, an 1850's property adjacent to the 65-acres of grounds, which will be restored to create a two-bedroom, self-contained property with kitchen, garden and BBQ area.
As well as owning the two UK hotels, Peter de Savary also owns the Mount Cinnamon Resort & Beach Club in Grenada with 22 villas.
He has previously owned and sold Skibbo Castle, Stapleford Park and Bovey Castle.
