All the hotel bedrooms are en-suite and include flat-screen TVs, loose furniture, tea and coffee making facilities and hairdryers, state the agent details.

The hotel accommodation includes seven family rooms, six twin rooms, 27 double rooms and five singles.

Adam Bullas, director of Savills who are marketing the property for sale, said: "It is frequented by destination and local customers for pub and restaurant use, staying guests looking to explore the area and also for those utilising the venue for functions and weddings. The venue has received many accolades and has been awarded four stars by Visit England for its accommodation.

"For the year end December 31, 2018 the venue generated a net turnover of £891,948. The vendor is selling for retirement purposes and therefore we believe the opportunity exists for an enterprising owner operator to acquire, convert some of the lodge to owner's/manager's accommodation and push the business forward."
