A private hotelier has bought a property in Somerset from a charity that supports children with special needs.
The March Foundation has sold the freehold on the Wyndcott hotel in Minehead in order to offer premises nearer its beneficiaries in inner London.
The hotel was marketed by Savills Exeter office and Chanin & Thomas in Minehead from a guide price of £550,000.
It is sited on the lower slops of North Hill and is within easy reach of Exmoor National Park and Minehead town centre.
The Wyndcott, which has a three-diamond rating, offers nine double/twin bedrooms, a 45-seat dining room, and a meeting room that can seat 25 guests.
The new owner plans to expand the property by upgrading facilities and opening a new restaurant.
