UK: The Devon-based hotel, set on a 116.5-acre Victorian estate, is up for sale and is being handled jointly by Christie & Co and Savills.

Highbullen Hotel Golf & Country Club has 39 en-suite bedrooms, four holiday cottages, an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor swimming pool, spa facilities, a gym, and club bar.

Outline planning consent is in place for 58 holiday home lodges to be built within the grounds, as well as an extension of 16 bedroom suites to the existing hotel.

Reserved matters applications have even been submitted for four treehouses and 15 holiday lodges.

Resort director David Tearle said: “We are extremely proud of Highbullen’s achievements during the Chapman family’s tenure, from the incredible feedback we continue to receive from our many guests to our numerous accolades and awards. With a planning application for treehouses and lodges in the final stages, the sale offers a fantastic opportunity for the full development of this exceptional resort. In the meantime, there will be no significant changes in the day-to-day running of our much-loved hotel as it is important we continue to maintain our extremely high standards and, as always, take pride in the hospitality and care of our guests.”

Stephen Champion, director at Christie & Co, added: “The numerous planning permissions in place to further develop the hotel and grounds or the opportunity to expand the current business with the facilities already in place. Hotels with this scope and potential rarely come to the market and we expect to see high levels of interest from a range of buyers including hotel groups, high net worth individuals, foreign buyers or developers looking at the planning permission in place.”
