The Property: The 44-bedroom, Grade II-listed hotel in Lutterworth, Leicestershire is a Victorian estate set in 38 acres of parkland and holds four red AA stars. It has two restaurants, one of which has two AA rosettes, four private dining rooms and eight conference rooms.
The property has its own open-air theatre with a capacity of 550 seats, set in a wooded glade beside a lake. Additionally, the hotel has a Victorian Orangery overlooking the surrounding parkland and it’s own helipad.
The hotel benefits from accommodating corporate and leisure guests both because of location and being drawn to the unique theatre offer.

This country house was built as a family home towards the end of the 19th century for John Entwisle, the High Sheriff of Leicestershire. After the death of Mr Entwisle’s second wife in the 1960s, the house passed to the Snowdon family who turned it into flats.

This is a new feature on the THPT site…. Hotel & Serviced Apartment owners can be naturally reticent in publicising their property is for sale…for confidentiality reasons, for staff and current client reasons, so the properties featured in this section will either be “generic” or “name specific”
Each fortnight we mail the opportunities posted that week, but check-out the tab “Hotels Available” and call us for details of “Under the Table” – deals not posted on the site at all
