‘The site offers further potential for development subject to the necessary planning permissions.’
Savills say the hotel offers a ‘unique opportunity’ to benefit from high footfall as it is opposite the main car park for Lulworth.
The listing added: ‘The previous business, a holiday cooperative, operated the country house hotel to patrons only, offering members and guests full board along with guided and self-guided walking and activity holidays.
‘An incoming hotelier will be well placed to take full advantage of the aforementioned number of visitors and demand for accommodation, while also serving food and drink to non-patrons.’
