BURLEIGH Court Hotel in Minchinhampton, which was on the market for £1.9 million, has sold.

Management consultants Corinna and James Rae have partnered with Simon Austin, formerly with the Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath, to buy the Georgian hotel from Louise Noble.

The sale was brokered by real estate advisor Colliers International.

Corinna said their philosophy would be based on the motto ‘eat well, sleep well, feel well.’

The couple will be taking the established business forward together with business partner Simon Austin at the operational helm.

He recently left a manager position at the Royal Crescent Hotel.

Corinna said: “We promise a hotel haven with captivating warmth and a splash of luxury served by a highly skilled team.”

Burleigh Court was built around 1800 and remodelled 100 years later by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis - who created the famous coastal village of Portmeirion in North Wales.

Asking price including the lodge was £1.9 million.

The 18-room, Grade II listed Burleigh Court Hotel stands in three acres of grounds.
