Hotels and Guest Houses

We are Leading Lakeland Lawyers working with clients who own and manage hotels and guest houses.

There are literally hundreds of hotels, guest houses, B&Bs and other accommodation venues in the Lake District, including many second and investment properties which are let out on a holiday basis. Our hotel and guest house clients range from the small, simple and traditional to some of the UK’s most revered establishments with ‘six star’ facilities, awards and accolades.

With the ‘staycation’ trend in full swing, the Lake District’s hotels and guest houses have been a hive of activity, not just for visitors but for the owners and their families. Investing in the region’s accommodation market has increased greatly and many long-standing hotel and guest house owners have decided to sell their businesses or make plans for future generations to take over.

Here at Temple Heelis, we have acted on many and varied matters including the sale of a large, well known Lake District hotel, the purchase of a new boutique hotel and self-catering accommodation including employment advice, the sales of several traditional Victorian guesthouses throughout the region, the sale of property associated with a well-known Lake District hostel and associated owners’ accommodation, the sale of a large caravan park, the purchase of a guesthouse by overseas investors and the purchase of a house of multiple occupation to house the employees of a well-known hotel in the Lake District.

However, our hotel and guest house expertise goes well beyond the Lake District!  We’ve acted for clients buying and selling all around England and Wales, including overseas clients extending their portfolio into the English market. Recent matters highlighted below.
