Boutique hotel and wedding venue at next Bond Wolfe auction
A Grade-II listed manor house in Staffordshire currently run as a boutique hotel and wedding venue will catch the eyes of bidders at the next Bond Wolfe property auction on Thursday 21 July.
The Manor Guest House at Watt Place, Cheadle – just a 15-minute drive away from the popular Alton Towers – boasts 11 ensuite bedrooms, a three bedroomed owners’ apartment and a separate three-bedroomed bungalow.
The freehold property will have a guide price* of £705,000+ in Bond Wolfe’s first return to the auction room in two-and-a-half years, a sale that will also be live-streamed online.
Ian Tudor, joint managing director auctions at Bond Wolfe, said: “This attractive and well-presented lot could be a great business venture with a potentially fabulous lifestyle opportunity for anyone wanting to work in the hospitality industry, with numerous income streams.
“The guest house has a large, 12 metre square, pillar free event hall which can accommodate approximately 130 guests, making it ideal for events such as weddings, birthdays and even funeral wakes.
“For weddings, a beautifully arranged bridal suite is also available as well as an attractive enclosed garden, perfect for a photo shoot.
“The property has also been run as a cosy and family-friendly boutique style guest house for the last 15 years, and has a recently refurbished breakfast and dining room with space for 18 covers.
“There is a well-maintained and picturesque walled garden with a patio seating area and a pond, and there is parking space for up to 35 cars.”
Mr Tudor explained that the property lies in a prominent position opposite St Giles The Abbott Church, close to the centre of Cheadle, an historic market town.
He added: “While the property is all ready for a continuation of its existing use as a guest house and special occasions venue, it is also considered suitable for alternative uses including redevelopment for residential, subject to planning permission.”
The Manor Guest House is just one of scores of properties appearing in the next Bond Wolfe property auction that starts at 9.30am on 21 July in the Holte Suite at Villa Park.
The auction will also be livestreamed via Bond Wolfe’s website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet for anyone that is not able to attend in person.
