The Barries are retiring to live locally and the new owners are moving to Bassenthwaite from Milton Keynes.

Haydn Spedding, associate director in the hotels team at the Manchester office of Colliers International, commented: "Continuing confidence in the Lake District and Cumbria from solid occupancy and the 'staycation' effect gives confidence to buyers to acquire good quality and profitable businesses in the tourist sector. We have a number of further significant sales in the pipeline which will complete before Christmas."
