Complete Hospitality has acquired the White Rose Hotel in Askrigg, a village in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, UK, in a deal brokered by property consultancy Christie & Co.

Post-acquisition, the hotel is now rebranded as The Middle House, Pub | Dining | Hotel.

The Middle House features 12 bedrooms, a bar, a games room, and an orangery restaurant that offers picturesque views of the garden.

It serves as a community hub in Askrigg, attracting both local residents and visitors.

The hotel has undergone a significant refurbishment, with enhancements made to guest bedrooms, reception and dining areas, and a comprehensive makeover of the bar.

Christie Finance helped secure the necessary funds for the acquisition, which marks Complete Hospitality’s first inaugural venture into hotel ownership.

Complete Hospitality co-director John Teasdale said: “Located in the ‘middle’ of the thriving village of Askrigg, the venue now offers great food and drinks, comfortable accommodation and the very best of Yorkshire Hospitality.

“We have received amazing support and feedback from the local community, and we want to provide them and visitors with a cosy and comfortable place to have a pint of local beer, eat some tasty locally sourced food and enjoy great company. Our plan is to sympathetically refurbish the entire building and create a venue everyone can enjoy.”

Christie & Co Hotels North director Mark Worley said: “We are delighted to have assisted John and Mervyn in their purchase and the sale is yet another example of the demand for leisure-led hospitality businesses in tourist locations such as National Parks and seaside towns.

“We wish the new owners every success with this exciting project and I look forward to hopefully helping them secure their second venue at some point in the not-too-distant future.”

Earlier this year, Christie & Co also confirmed the sale of the Torbay Hotel in Devon.

The hotel was acquired by Caledonian Travel. The Torbay Hotel is part of the Coast & Country Collection, which consists of 33 properties that have garnered substantial interest.
