Country hotel in Surrey offered for £3m

The Bookham Grange country hotel in the heart of Surrey has been placed on the market for the first time in 24 years at an asking price of £3m.

The property, which has traded as a hotel since 1947, dates back to around 1890, with two-storey Edwardian extensions built around 1910 and more recent additions made in 1997.

Bookham Grange is half a mile from the centre of the high-value commuter village of Little Bookham, near Leatherhead, and is well placed to access Heathrow and Gatwick airports and central London.

It offers 27 en-suite bedrooms across two floors, a 50-seat bar/lounge leading to a 70-seat patio garden and barbecue area, and a 40-seat restaurant called the Polesden Room.

The extensive grounds cover 3.5 acres and include landscaped gardens, a paddock, a meadow to the rear, and a three-bedroom owners' bungalow.

Staff accommodation encompasses a cottage with three double and three single bed-sitting rooms, staff quarters with one single and two double bed-sitting rooms, and two self-contained single bedrooms to the rear of the kitchen. All staff bedrooms are en-suite.

Bookham Grange enjoys year-round business from both the commercial and leisure sectors and caters for day meetings, residential conferences, and a number of functions and weddings.

In the year to September 2005, the hotel achieved earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation of £240,000 on a gross turnover of £585,301.

The Winchester office of Christie & Co is marketing the hotel on behalf of Raul Perry, who has owned the property since 1982.
