Full Details

A superb Grade II listed Georgian Manor House occupying approaching 13 acres of beautiful grounds and overlooking National Trust owned parkland. Boasting a swimming pool, vineyards and additional ancillary accommodation currently providing an income. In total, 28 bedrooms with eleven in the main building, a further four in the rear wing and the remaining rooms being split between two additional buildings giving scope for further income potential.

The property is believed to date back to the sixteenth century and originally named Pengethley House, Pengethley Manor was rebuilt in the early nineteenth century after a fire all but destroyed the property. In 1948 the house was turned into a hotel and enjoyed many successful years as a highly regarded hotel and restaurant, wedding venue and conference centre, then more recently a training facility. The property is now privately owned and offers short-term holidays. The owners have obtained planning permission for change of use for the main house to residential giving the option to use as a family home if desired, along with the ancillary accommodation providing self-contained holiday lets. Planning Ref: P222219/F dated 4 July 2022.

Lounge: The lounge is bathed in natural light, thanks to its tall sash windows and is further enhanced by a large open fireplace and exposed timber floorboards.

Dining Room: The dining room overlooks the expansive lawns through its tall sash windows and like the lounge, it also features exposed timber floorboards. Bi-folding doors to the games room provide the option to transform this room into a generously sized function room. Having a period fireplace and access to the garden, it is a versatile space for various occasions.

Bar/Sitting Room: A pleasant room with a bespoke bar, cosy open fireplace and glazed French doors leading out to the rear garden and patio area.

Adjacent to the reception hall, there is a corridor that provides access to the gardens and houses the ladies’ and gentlemen’s W.C.s.

There are two cellar rooms and a further staircase leads to the rear wing having four en-suite bedrooms. To the first floor of the main house are eleven bedrooms, all being beautifully presented, having many period features and overlooking the lawns and surrounding countryside.
