Ravenstone Manor bought by Mawdsley Bleachers off £1.35m asking price

ravenstone manorORMSKIRK based family-owned hotel and leisure company Mawdsley Bleachers has extended its portfolio with acquisition of Ravenstone Manor in Kewswick off an asking price of £1.35m for the freehold.

Nestled within three hectares of gardens, the hotel commands one of the most spectacular locations in the heart of the Lake District with sweeping views of Bassenthwaite Lake and the surrounding Cumbrian countryside.

Originally built as a Dower house for Lady Charlotte Howard in 1860 as a place of rest and relaxation, the charming property combines modern touches with period Victorian features.

The hotel has 20 recently-refurbished en-suite bedrooms offering panoramic views of the open country, an additional detached one bedroom cottage with French windows leading to a private patio and a two-bedroom owner’s accommodation.

Previous owner Martin Oakley decided to sell to relocate closer to family.

Keith Stringer, Associate Director at Christie & Co who handled the sale, said: “Christie & Co was delighted to have been instructed by Mr Oakley following a period whereby the property was unsuccessfully marketed by another agent.

“Following a short period of open marketing with us, a deal was agreed within four weeks, with completion eight weeks later.”
