David Tearle, resort director at Highbullen, said: “We are extremely proud of Highbullen’s achievements during the Chapman family’s tenure.

“With a planning application for treehouses and lodges in the final stages, the sale offers a fantastic opportunity for the full development of this exceptional resort.”

Jeremy Jones and Edward Bellfield of Christie and Co, who are handling the sale, said: “Highbullen presents extensive upside to any prospective purchasers whether it be through the numerous planning permissions in place to further develop the hotel and grounds or the opportunity to expand the current business with the facilities already in place.

“As the focus for the domestic leisure guest turns to remaining in the UK for short and lengthier holidays, we expect to see increased levels of interest from a range of buyers captured by the unique appeal of Highbullen Hotel, Golf & Country Club.”
