Conference centre is put up for sale

Apr 24, 2019

THE
Horwood Estate near Milton Keynes has been put up for sale.

The
185-bedroom hotel and conference centre is one of three being put on the market
by operator De Vere. Horwood estate, Staverton Estate in Northamptonshire and
Cranage Estate in Cheshire are all on offer free of brand and management.

Each
property offers operating scale and great potential to take advantage of a
range of substantial asset management and planning opportunities, says
specialist business property adviser Christie & Co which is handling the
sale.

The
mansion house at Horwood Estate in Little Horwood was built in 1911 as a
country residence and today combines original features and 21st-century
modern style across 35 different event spaces. The venue also has a purpose-built
training academy and grounds that lend themselves to a range of teambuilding
activities.

Horwood
Estate, set in 38 acres, was the birthplace of gardener and broadcaster Percy
Thrower, whose father was the estate’s head gardener.

The
three hotels are being marketed individually or as a group. Christie & Co
head of brokerage Jeremy Jones said: “We are delighted to present to the market
such attractive, high yielding hotels. The scale of each of these properties
leaves ample opportunity for new owners to build upon the already successful
businesses and we anticipate high levels of interest from a range of buyers and
investors.”
