‘A rare opportunity’ to buy landmark hotel and country club

Stockport’s landmark hotel and country club Bredbury Hall is up for sale.

The venue went into administration last month, with the loss of more than 90 jobs.

Now it’s on the market for offers around £5.25m.

The hotel has 149 en-suite bedrooms as well as extensive conference and banqueting facilities with capacities ranging from six to 200 guests across 10 suites.

It also boasts a lounge, bar and 60-cover brasserie, a recently refurbished 200-cover Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar and Grill restaurant, and a popular nightclub with capacity for 900 guests.

The property underwent an extensive refurbishment after being bought out of administration in 2015 by Bangladesh businessman Golam Sarwar.

But his company, Newco Ventures Ltd, called in administrators again in October after trading difficulties led to increased creditor arrears and financial pressure.

“As a result of these inherent pressures, the hotel was unable to reopen after lockdown restrictions were eased and an appointment of administrators was made,” administrators FRP said.

Property consultancy Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH), which has been appointed to handle the sale, said the business had a net turnover of £4,105,000 for the year ending 2019.

The freehold also includes car parking and land surrounding the property.

Martin Davis, director of hotels and leisure at Lambert Smith Hampton, said: “We are delighted to bring Bredbury Hall & Country Club to market and we firmly believe that this represents an excellent investment opportunity.

“It is rare to find an opportunity like this which offers so much potential to operators.

“The nature of Bredbury Hall offers a number of potential opportunities to rebrand and reposition the hotel, in particular, the re-purposing of the 16th century barn which could be utilised as either a wedding venue or spa and leisure facility.

“We believe that as well-established hotel and country club in the north west, interest will be high for this sought-after investment opportunity.”
