The Lythe Hill Hotel & Spa near Haslemere has been sold to a secret buyer.

Specialist business property advisers Christie & Co and joint agent HMH Golf & Leisure have successfully sold the Lythe Hill Hotel & Spa – but both the buyer and the vendor are remaining anonymous.

The historic hotel, located on the Petworth Road two miles east of Haslemere, has 41 en-suite bedrooms and two private suites, three conference/function rooms, an 84-cover restaurant, as well as an afternoon tea lounge which sits 30 covers.

Its Amarna Spa includes five treatment rooms, pedicure, steam room and sauna with the health club providing a 16-metre indoor swimming pool with gym and changing facilities.

Further facilities in the grounds include a helicopter pad and tennis court.

The main hotel is comprised of a unique collection of converted farm barns, cattle sheds, milking parlours and stalls. The Grade II Listed Tudor House, which incorporates The Old Room and the restaurant, is steeped in history, dating back to 1475 with an abundance of original period features.

The hotel is a popular choice for weddings, with three indoor and outdoor spaces on offer, including a ballroom for 150 guests and a picturesque wedding pagoda in the landscaped grounds.

In recent years the property has undergone extensive renovations and refurbishment, and the new owner is understood to be keen to continue this investment to maintain the luxury hotel resort accommodation and facilities.

Ed Bellfield, regional director in Christie & Co’s Hotels team, who brokered the deal, said: “The sale of Lythe Hill Hotel represented a rare opportunity to acquire a hotel in an enviable location close to the South Downs National Park and within easy reach of London.

“Together with the planning consent, this provides huge scope to increase the business further.

“The open marketing campaign generated significant interest and we received multiple offers for the hotel which reflects the current activity in the hotel sector.

“This is being driven by renewed demand from both the staycation leisure/wedding market and the re-emergence of the corporate sector.”
