Corncroft Guest House, situated on the edge of the tourist hotspot, the Cotswolds, in Witney, Oxfordshire, has come to the market through Christie & Co. Christie & Co, with an asking price of £975k.
The AA 4-Star rated guest house provides 11 ensuite bedrooms over three floors, as well as a variety of common areas for guests to enjoy such as a breakfast room, lounge and garden.
Operating from a Grade II-listed building, the guest house sits at the corner of Crofts and Corn Street, which is where it gains its current name, but the property itself has a rich history. Previously known as ‘Parliament House,’ the building is rumoured to be the site where James I held a Parliament in the 17th century.
Embracing its heritage, Corncroft features Jacobean influenced décor throughout and fits well into the market town of Witney, which is also full of history, with Iron Age and Roman beginnings. Sitting close to the town centre, Corncroft is easily accessible and provides the ideal base for both leisure and corporate guests drawn to Oxfordshire’s many tourist attractions and business hub.
Current owner, Richard Turner, has owned the Corncroft for 13 years, having redesigned and invested in the guest house over time, building it into a successful business.
He has now decided to sell in order to pursue other investment opportunities and said, “The challenge of developing and creating Corncroft has given me an immense sense of achievement and pleasure and will be sorely missed.”
Tom Orchard, Business Agent at Christie & Co is handling the sale and commented, “Corncroft Guest House is extremely well presented, situated close to the High Street of Witney and ideally positioned for easy access to both Oxford and the Cotswolds.”
