Victorian guest house Easedale Lodge at Ambleside in the heart of the Lake District National Park is being offered for sale by the specialist hotels team at real estate advisors Colliers International.

Acting on behalf of owners David Mothersdale and Sarah White who are retiring to live near York, Colliers is seeking offers of around £789,000 for the recently refurbished property with seven letting double bedrooms and self-contained, one double-bedroom owners’ accommodation.

Ambleside sits at the centre of the Lake District National Park offering easy access to Windermere, England’s longest lake, and other visitor centres such as Grasmere, home of the poet Wordsworth and on the western side of Windermere, the village of Sawrey, where Beatrix Potter lived and worked.

Haydn Spedding, associate director, hotels agency at the Manchester office of Colliers International, is managing the sale of Easedale Lodge and said: “Easedale Lodge epitomises the enormous appeal of Lake District guest houses to potential owners, being built of local stone in the Victorian era and situated in one of the most prominent locations in the National Park.

“The Lake District continues to be Colliers’ most productive region for hospitality sector deals in the UK, with more than 30 sales secured in the past two years.”
