Traditional values, modern solutions

Do you have a property to sell or let?

An impressive Grade II-listed hotel from the Victorian era on the Welsh border will excite bidders at Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next auction later this month.

The Knighton Hotel is an imposing building on Broad Street in Knighton, a town on the River Teme and the England-Wales border in Powys, near Shropshire.

Built back in 1867, the four-storey property will go under the hammer with a guide price* of £310,000 at the auction at Villa Park on Wednesday 23 October.

Ian Tudor, managing director of Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “The Knighton Hotel is an attractive stone property adjoined by a more modern, half-timbered building in the heart of an historic town centre.

“This is a spacious, Grade II-listed property that would be suitable to continue as a hotel, restaurant and wedding venue, or it could be developed for a variety of alternative uses including residential, subject to planning and listed building consents.

“It really is a joy to tour this building, with its extensive lounge areas, a bar, a restaurant for approximately 80 covers, a striking function room for approximately 200 covers, 16 en suite bedrooms and a good-sized duplex flat with its own entrance.

“Other rooms include a commercial kitchen with food hoists to the banqueting suite, a dry store, washing up section, cellars, plant room, laundry room and additional satellite kitchen.

“The property also features a particularly attractive staircase to the upper floors, and two timber decks outside to service the main restaurant and bar.”

Knighton is a small market town and a popular tourist destination for visitors exploring the Offa’s Dyke path and other parts of rural mid-Wales.

It’s a centre for the surrounding smaller villages, with easy access to Ludlow, Leominster, Hereford and Shrewsbury, as well as the county town of Llandrindod Wells.

Mr Tudor added: “This is a remarkable lot that will catch the eye of potential owners with either its original use or a completely new life in mind, and we expect some strong bidding.”

The Knighton Hotel is just one of 131 lots going under the hammer in Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next sale on Wednesday 23 October at 10.30am at the regular venue of the Holte Suite at Aston Villa FC.

Bond Wolfe Auctions has now been instructed to sell 621 lots since launching in January this year, including properties across the East and West Midlands and as far afield as Wales, Scotland, plus north east and north west England.

The first four auctions have raised £55 million in sales with an average success rate of 85.5% against the national average of 72% – comfortably making it the West Midlands leading auctioneer.
