A LAKE District hotel has been placed on the market with a price tag of £7.25 million. 

The Derwentwater Hotel, Portinscale, near Keswick, includes 66 bedrooms arranged over three floors and external cottages.  

In 2020, the parent company collapsed into administration, resulting in a temporary closure. 

The hotel was formerly owned by Specialist Leisure Group.

However, it was reopened under Coast & Country Hotel Collection later that year in the wake of the pandemic. 

The property that was originally constructed in the 1900s is being marketed by Christie & Co. 

The three-star hotel is arranged over three-storeys with a two-storey side extension for staff accommodation. 

Along with a terrace of four self-contained holiday flats, the hotel also comes with a further stand-alone cottage.

The listing states: "The hotel has a large open plan lounge and bar area which is accessed from the reception and encompasses existing rooms within the hotel and a large open plan conservatory which has views towards the lake.

"This has capacity for approximately 100 covers in various table sizes.

"The main hotel restaurant has seating for approximately 100 covers and has a central buffet servery.

"The hotel has a small area to the front which is currently disused, and this has the potential to be converted into an additional casual dining / coffee shop."
