The Feathers

UK: The 21-bedroom Feathers hotel in Woodstock, Oxfordshire has been sold for an undisclosed sum, off a guide price of £2.75 million.

The Grade II-listed property was brought to market by Colliers. The Feathers is renowned for its gin collection, for which it was awarded a Guinness World Record in 2012 for the largest collection.

Peter Brunt, director in the hotels agency at Colliers, said: “The Feathers must be one of the few hotels where you only need to say the name and people will complete the location, as both the hotel and the picturesque town of Woodstock are hugely popular with both international and UK tourists.

“Understandably, we received keen interest from a range of potential purchasers attracted by the strength of the business operated since 1999 by the private vendor, as well as the potential for the business to be developed further under new ownership,” he continued. 

“The Cotswolds has traditionally been an area in which well-located hotels and pubs are in high demand, and all the signs are that demand is set to intensify as the country moves out of lockdown and UK staycations become increasingly sought after.”

Other properties brought to market by Colliers includes The Bradley in Cheltenham and The Brantwood Country House Hotel in the Lake District.
