A stately hotel in Grimsby has been reluctantly put up for sale by its owner for nearly £3 million .
The Healing Manor Hotel was built around the 1900s, with parts dating back to the 1700s. It had stood empty and part derelict for a number of years until it was purchased a few years ago by property developer Mark Brennan.
Since taking it on, the site has undergone a dramatic refurbishment as well as a full redevelopment of the stables, barn and outbuildings.
It now incorporates 37 ensuite bedrooms, a restaurant and bar, its very own pub, the Pig and Whistle, and two function suites within its 36 acres of garden and woodland.
It also has its own island which used to be the site of the original manor house.
Now the hotel turnover for the last six months is £769,000 producing a profit of £154,000 and has 63 weddings booked for 2017.
Mark said: “Being local to Grimsby, Healing Manor is a building I had long admired having formerly been owned by the Portman family as part of a 400 acre estate. As a property developer, I was dismayed at the recent deterioration, so when the opportunity arose to purchase it, I needed no encouragement.
“My life has recently changed direction however, meaning I am now reluctantly looking to sell and I am therefore hopeful that a more experienced hotel and wedding operator will capitalise on my investment and take the business to the next level.”
Mark Worley, Director at Christie & Co which has been instructed to sell the property, said: “The transformation and restoration of the building has been a labour of love for the current owner and he should be commended for the exceptional quality.”
