It has welcomed A-list celebrities including the likes of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but now the Nansloe Manor hotel in Helston is up for sale.
The Grade II Listed house, which originally dates back to the seventeenth century, was remodelled in the eighteenth century as a Georgian manor house and extended in the nineteenth century, has been listed with Savills with a guide price of £2,090,000.
Present owners David and Betty Carr bought the property in 2004 and since then have completely refurbished and refitted it, including the addition of a modern contemporary wing to the main building that houses the 70-cover restaurant and some of the 15 bedrooms and suites.
A private cinema has also been added as well as a small spa with gym and an exercise pool. Martin Rogers of Savills said: “Following its refurbishment, the hotel quickly developed a first class reputation and the list of celebrities who stayed there is testament to this.
“They include Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Matthew Fox, Simon and Zoey Jones, Marc Forster the director of Quantum of Solace, Caroline Quentin, Duncan Goodhew, Sharron Davies, Maureen Lipman and Shirley Eaton. “This boutique hotel is quite simply one of the finest small hotels I have offered for sale.”
The 4.68 acre grounds include formal lawns, herbaceous borders, an orchard and a walled garden.
Mr Rogers added: “Despite the success of the business, our clients now wish to retire. Though the hotel is not open at present it is ready to trade and could be operational immediately.”
The three-bedroom lodge at the entrance to the driveway is not included in the guide price, although Mr Roberts said: “The seller will give the purchaser pre-emption rights.”
