A spokesperson for Clive Emson said: "A rare opportunity to acquire a small Country Estate comprising a triple component hotel retreat set in 2.37 hectares (5.87 acres) of formal gardens and grounds in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, situated in an elevated position with amazing rural views.

"This idyllic property is located less than 5 miles to the coast, Lynton and Dunster and 15 miles from Barnstaple as well as the M5 junction 25 being only 23 miles away."

Hotel Croydon Hall ran alongside the private members club, which saw monthly parties take place with strict rules over who could attend.

The spokesperson added: "The property has until recently specialised in functions and adult parties as a private members club.

"Interest is anticipated from both the hospitality sector for continued use in its current format as well as builder developers who will see the potential for refurbishment or subdivision of the individual units for onward sale, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable."

The property features spa facilities, as well as an outside heated swimming pool, but is set to be sold as freehold with vacant possession.
