Surrey hotel linked to Lloyd George changes hands

Surrey hotel linked to Lloyd George changes hands

A rural Surrey hotel that was frequented by former Prime Minister David Lloyd George has been sold off a guide price of £1.6m.

The Pride of the Valley hotel is set in the Surrey countryside on the outskirts of the village of Churt, close to the affluent towns of Haslemere and Farnham.

The property, which dates back to around 1856, underwent a major refurbishment in 1998 to repair fire damage.

Its popularity with Lloyd George, who served as Prime Minister between 1916 and 1922, is commemorated in the 60-seat Lloyd George restaurant, which is open for lunchtime and evening trade.

The hotel, which operates on a B&B and half-board basis, also offers 16 individually-designed en-suite bedrooms, a lounge, and the 40-seat Dragons Lair Bar and Bistro.

A ground floor flat in the rear annexe (with two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen and a lounge) has, to date, been reserved for use by staff.

The Winchester office of Christie + Co handled the sale of the freehold to new owner, Andrew Colley from Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.
