Matthew Smith, partner at Knight Frank which is handling the sale, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase an historical building with a fascinating past in the heart of Rutland, with stunning views over Rutland Water and rolling countryside.
“Over the years Barnsdale Hall Hotel has been transformed into a thriving resort business with income derived from the private leisure, wedding, events and corporate markets.
"The resort benefits from extensive leisure facilities both indoors and outdoors and combined with its unique shoreline location, the business attracts a huge number of outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy the grounds and everything the surrounding area has to offer.
“Under the current ownership 49 timeshare lodges and apartments have been developed - 31 lodges and 18 apartments.
"All leases expire in August 2028 and vacant possession will revert to the incumbent freeholder giving them an additional 113-bedrooms from which to generate additional revenue and enable the new owner to reposition the business.
"The site also has planning permission to construct an additional 36-guest bedrooms and 9-staff bedrooms.”
