Knight Frank Completes Sale of Barnsdale Hall Hotel

13.07.20

Knight Frank has completed the sale of Rutland’s renowned Barnsdale Hall Hotel to Dineshbhai and Savitaben Patel on behalf of trustees, selling off a guide price of £10m. The lakeside resort was constructed in 1890 as the family hunting lodge of the 6th Earl Fitzwilliam, where he hosted royalty, including Edward, the late Duke of Windsor along with other members of England’s aristocracy.

Barnsdale Hall in Oakham was subsequently acquired by Derek Penman, Chairman of the Penman Group and one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs. It then underwent extensive long-term redevelopment and refurbishment work to become a 55-acre lakeside resort and today offers 66 guest bedrooms, 49 timeshare lodges and apartments, 11 function suites, four bars and restaurants, a swimming pool, squash and tennis courts, air-conditioned studio, gym and spa.

“We are thrilled to announce the sale of Barnsdale Hall Hotel, and given the exceptional circumstances over the past few months we agreed the sale in the midst of the Government lockdown with all parties involved working tirelessly to achieve a successful outcome. Although challenging times, it has been a pleasure working with both buyers and sellers to overcome unprecedented and uncertain obstacles to ensure the transaction continued on course,„ commented Matthew Smith, Partner at Knight Frank.

“Dineshbhai and Savitaben Patel and their family have acquired a truly exceptional lakeside resort, with its elevated position offering unparalleled views over Rutland Water. Having been in the same family ownership for the past 35 years, this now represents an exciting new chapter for the business under the ownership of the Patel family,” Continued Smith.

“Barnsdale Hall Hotel is a truly incomparable resort nestled in a magical setting within Rutland – boasting spectacular views overlooking Rutland Lake and a wonderful range of leisure facilities,“ said Dineshbhai Patel. “We are delighted to be working with the exceptional management team who have shown remarkable resilience and determination over the past few months, which have been a challenging and difficult time for everyone working in the hospitality industry. The commitment and loyalty of staff at all levels has been incredible, the accommodation and grounds are looking beautiful and we look forward to welcoming guests again with a focus on delivering the very highest standards of quality, luxury and service.”
