Luxury hotel goes up for sale

Sprawling hotel, country club and golf course is on the market with a multi-million pound price tag.

A LUXURY hotel and county club has gone on sale with a multi-million pound asking price.

In August last year, owners of the Highbullen Hotel and Country Club, near Umberleigh, announced a plan to restore the 130-year-old county house to its former glory with a two-year facelift.

But the Chittlehamholt business is now being marketed by joint agents Savills and Knight Frank for a guide price of �3.75 million.

The property consists of the main house, leisure facilities, guest accommodation and cottages as well as an 18-hole 68-par golf course.

Originally built in 1879, Highbullen House features 11 en-suite bedrooms, a large entrance and reception hall, library, snooker room, cellar bar, restaurant and commercial kitchen.

Also included in the price is an additional block with 19 en-suite bedrooms; two three and four-bedroom cottages; and a pavilion with 20-metre swimming pool, sauna, steam and spa pool, fully equipped gymnasium, dance studio, golf simulator, pro shop, and a function suite with kitchens and bar.
