Stoke Park back on the market

Stoke Park back on the market

Stoke Park Country Club, Spa & Resort is back on the market as its owners have decided to focus on "other business interests".

International Group (IG), which owns the 49-bedroom, five-red-AA-star hotel in Buckinghamshire, has instructed CBRE to bring the property to market having explored the possibility of a sale two years ago.

IG is owned by the King family who reopened Stoke Park as a hotel in 1998 after a five-year refurbishment programme. This time the family appear set on a sale, with Hertford King commenting that after 30 years of ownership they have decided to focus on other business interests.

Hertford King, a director of Stoke Park, said: "We have been very fortunate to be one of the owners of Stoke Park during its 1,000 years of recorded history. After 30 years as the privileged custodians of this unique estate and club, our family has decided that it is time to focus on our other business interests.

"The opportunity to work for three decades with a talented group of people on the conservation of the historic landscape, gardens, monuments and buildings at Stoke Park and to build on the club's magnificent legacy with new facilities and services, fit for the 21st century, for the benefit of its members and guests has been a great privilege and we look forward to handing it to new owners with a shared vision for the future of this magnificent estate."

The mansion house at the centre of the 300-acre estate, designed by Capability Brown and Humphry Repton, was initially built as a private home by George III's architect James Wyatt between 1790 and 1813.

Today the estate features three restaurants and bars, with the three-AA-rosette Humphry's restaurant headed by executive chef Chris Wheeler, winner of the 2016 Hotel Chef of the Year (more than 250 covers) Hotel Catey.

Extensive leisure facilities include a 27-hole golf course, tennis courts and an indoor swimming pool. The hotel also hosts the Boodles, an annual tennis tournament held in the run up to Wimbledon.

Tom King, senior director at CBRE, added: "Stoke Park is a highly regarded Country Club and resort and presents a fantastic opportunity to invest in an impressive hotel and estate and we are anticipating high levels of interest."
