A really quite special country house hotel near Salcombe in Devon’s South Hams is being offered for sale, with the agent flagging up that, aside from a its current incarnation as a swish by-the-night retreat, “the property could also make a wonderful private house subject to planning permission.”
Savills is marketing the 3 AA star rated William and Mary manor house, Buckland Tout-Saints, with a £2.75m guide price. The property looks down over its 4.5 acres of tended gardens and woodland, which includes a croquet lawn and helipad (it’s a bit out in the sticks – offering near-total privacy – so the helipad does get used a fair amount). In its current format, the main house offers 16 en-suite bedrooms, an impressive lounge, a self contained function suite that accommodates 120 covers, and the Queen Anne Restaurant, which holds 2 AA rosettes.
Martin Rogers, head of UK hotel transactions at Savills: “The iconic Buckland Tout-Saints is a fantastic example of a successful country house hotel. It is well known and respected in the area and we expect high levels of interest in the property. The self contained Kestrel Suite and Queen Anne Restaurant ensure there are additional income streams to compliment the room bookings. The property could also make a wonderful private house subject to planning permission.”
