Donnington Grove put up for sale for £10m

4.42pm 17th May 2022 - Property

Donnington Grove Hotel & Golf Club in Berkshire has been put up for sale with a guide price of £10 million.

The Newbury-based venue boasts a 40-bedroom hotel set within 250 acres and includes an 18-hole, 7,108-yard championship golf course which was designed by Dave Thomas and first opened in 1993. 

The main manor house, which dates back to the 1750s, has a restaurant and bar and four meeting rooms, while there is lapsed planning consent for an additional 26 bedrooms.
Max Davies, chairman of the club’s current owners, Sandtrend Ltd, said: “Since we acquired the hotel and golf course in 2005, we have substantially invested and improved the asset for the members and its customers. After 17 years of ownership it is now the right time for a new owner to come in and realise the fantastic potential which lies within this property and take it to the next level.”

Henry Jackson, head of hotel agency at Knight Frank, which is handling the sale, added: “Situated only an hour-and-a-half from central London, and well located to Oxford, Bath and Bristol, Donnington Grove provides a blank canvas for an incoming purchaser to develop a prime country house hotel. 

“With its attractive approach, and mature grounds and lakes, it has considerable potential to develop further. Opportunities such as these so close to London, with such a substantial acreage, are rare and we look forward to bringing the hotel to the market.”

The golf course was designed by Dave Thomas and first opened in 1993
