A sporting chance in the south west

Hotel in outdoor activities hot spot comes onto market

A HOTEL close to a raft of sports and outdoor activities in the south west has come onto the books of Smith & Clough Business Associates.

Located in the hamlet of Bargrennan near Newton Stewart, on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park, the House o’ Hill Hotel is said to benefit from its proximity to the 7stanes mountain bike trails, the Southern Upland Way and a number of fishing spots in the surrounding lochs and rivers.
Purchased by the current owners in 2010, the hotel is said to have undergone an extensive refurbishment and currently trades with a three star rating from VisitScotland.
The House o’ Hill has two en suite letting rooms a 16-cover lounge and breakfast room, a 30-cover function room, a public bar and a lounge bar which seats 28.

The sale includes a hotel and cottage set in 12 acres.

There’s also a self-contained two-bedroom owner’s flat, and a separate self-catering cottage with two bedrooms.
Offers in the region of £545,000 are being sought for the freehold interest, which includes the hotel, cottage and 12 acres of land.
Graeme Smith, of Smith & Clough, said the property offers “superb development potential” both internally and externally.
“The current owners have looked into various opportunities such as eco-lodges, stables, self-catering and residential, which have been greatly received by the local planning authority, although this would need to be explored further,” said Smith.
“With its ‘home from home’ atmosphere, attention to detail and development potential, the House o’ Hill Hotel is an excellent business opportunity for a chef operator or discerning purchaser looking to increase on what is already a thriving business.”
