Top wedding venue goes up for sale
A well-known Lancashire countryside hotel and popular wedding venue is being sold by the owners owing to ill health.
Family-run Springfield House in Pilling is on the market for at least £765,000 .
The privately-owned seven-bedroomed hotel was built in Georgian times in around 1840.
It is tucked away in around 2.5 acres of countryside surrounded by manicured lawns and a walled garden.
Springfield House is an established wedding venue across Lancashire.
Commercial estate agents Colliers International Manchester say the hotel also enjoys a busy mix of both commercial and leisure trade.
The property, owned by the Cox family, is being sold freehold with goodwill and trade contents.
Colliers said: “The business has been operated by the family since 2010.
“Upon acquiring the hotel, they invested heavily in the building to improve the facilities and to create a stylish, comfortable and traditional setting for its guests to enjoy.
“Although the majority of the trade is derived from weddings and short breaks, the hotel has a great underused dining area which can provide a further revenue stream.”
Colliers added: “The current owners choose to casually trade the business around 5.5 days per week, providing an opportunity to further develop trade should a new owner wish to be more commercially minded.
“However, after five years of trading they have made the decision to sell Springfield House due to ill health.”
