The freehold Corncroft Guest House, located on the edge of the Cotswolds in Witney, Oxfordshire, hit the market at a guide price of Â£ 975,000.
Operating in a Grade II listed building, the guest house is on the corner of Crofts and Corn Street, from which it takes its current name. Previously known as the “House of Parliament”, the building is said to be the site where James I held a parliament in the 17th century.
Current owner Richard Turner has owned Corncroft for 13 years, having redesigned and invested in the guesthouse over time, making it a successful business. Turner has now decided to sell in order to pursue other investment opportunities and said, âThe challenge of developing and creating Corncroft has given me a tremendous sense of accomplishment and pleasure and will be dearly missed. “
Tom Orchard, commercial agent at Christie & Co manages the sale and comments: âThe Corncroft guest house is extremely well presented, set close to Witney High Street and ideally located for easy access to Oxford and the Cotswolds. “
