A charming hotel in the New Forest is being marketed by Colliers International at £1.75m freehold.
Sway Manor near Lymington is ideally situated to capitalise on significant visitor numbers drawn to one of the UK’s most enduring tourist hubs.
Hotels Director Simon Wells said: “Tourism continues to hold up well in the New Forest, and judging by the strong response we had when selling the Crown Hotel at Lyndhurst just down the road, potential buyers remain as keen as ever to get hold of the right property in this superb location.
The charming 16-bedroom hotel, which enjoys a village setting and five acres of grounds on the edge of the New Forest, is capable of holding functions for up to 120 guests and is a popular mid-week and weekend wedding venue.
Built as an Edwardian gentleman’s residence in 1906 , the manor features a smart bar and lounge leading to the Conservatory which has fantastic views over the exceptionally well laid out gardens.
As well as the extensive grounds there is a heated swimming pool with small changing rooms underneath and to the side of the property, a boules court.
The owner bought the hotel in 2002 and then completed a wide ranging renovation programme adding in the bar, lounge and restaurant.
A number of the 16 bedrooms (thirteen double and three twins) have also been renovated.
Simon Wells concluded: “Having successfully run the hotel since 2002 our client is about to retire and this opens up a fantastic opportunity for new operators to come in and take the business forward.
