Shap Wells Hotel, a secluded property tucked away in the Shap Fells, is on the market for the first time in two decades.

The team at commercial real estate firm Colliers is handling the sale of the hotel, seeking offers in the region of £2,950,000.

Constructed in 1833, the 108-bedroom hotel is nestled in a wooded valley amongst mountain streams, situated between the Lake District National Park and Yorkshire Dales.

It stands on 15 acres of land and features a restaurant, a lounge bar, two conference suites, and staff accommodation close to the main building.

Julian Troup, head of hotels agency at Colliers, said: “The Shap Wells Hotel is an impressive hotel which overlooks the Birkbeck River and has an established history of providing quality accommodation for tourists looking to explore the nearby Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Scottish borders.

"It is also a popular venue for family celebrations, with the large banqueting suites playing host to parties and wedding celebrations complemented by the picturesque views of the surrounding English countryside.”

The Shap Wells Hotel boasts a three-star rating, given by the Cumbria Tourist Board.

Its current owners, who acquired the property in 2004, have managed the hotel via a general manager and a 'quality' staff team for the past two decades.

The hotel is just 12 miles from Haweswater, and close to key access roads such as the M6 and A6. It offers easy access to guests wanting to explore towns like Keswick.

Colliers has sold 60 hotels and associated hospitality businesses in Cumbria since the start of 2021.

Mr Troup said: "The hospitality sector in Cumbria has been in high demand, particularly in the wake of the pandemic staycation boom.

"The Shap Wells Hotel has been competitively priced and we’re anticipating significant interest in the opportunity.”
