Cumbrian hotel up for sale - with £1m price tag
A popular Cumbrian hotel has been put up for a sale.
Leisure property specialists Fleurets has been instructed by the auction company Hopes to market The Greenhill Hotel, near Wigton, which they say is currently operated under management with a reported turnover last year of £731,000.
A Hopes director said: "The Greenhill Hotel is not our primary focus as livestock auctioneering, together with estate and land agencies make up the core of our business, and therefore we are not able to dedicate the attention that we would like to Greenhill."
Lesley Watmough from Fleurets' Manchester office said the 12-roomed Georgian mansion has healthy financial figures.
It is set in 8.745 acres, and also has a large car park and extensive grounds.
Hopes diversified into the hotel trade in 2007 when it bought the Golf Hotel in Silloth. This was sold last year.
Greenhill Hotel is up for sale with an asking price of £950,000.
