DWF advises US property developer on purchase of historic UK hotel

15 April 2021
DWF has advised on the purchase of an historic Cotswolds hotel by a US buyer for an undisclosed sum. 

Dumbleton Hall Hotel is a Grade II listed 38-bedroom hotel on the border of Gloucestershire and Worcestershire in the Cotswolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The 19th century manor house is set within acres of private gardens and woodland with its own lake. 

The property has been bought by Dumbleton Hall Hotel Property Company Ltd, led by Paul Vezolles, president of the US-based Chatham Park Development and it is now set to undergo a major upgrade. 

DWF's multi-disciplinary legal team provided advice to the purchaser led by real estate partner Kevin McGlone alongside partner Melanie Williams and associate Jamie McLean. Banking advice was provided by director Alan Glen and associate Mikela Rochford; corporate legal advice from senior associate, Rachael Burke while solicitor Jonathan Barron provided employment law advice. 

Kevin McGlone said: "It has been a pleasure to support the new owners of Dumbleton Hall on this flagship purchase and we wish them every success with the planned upgrades, particularly as the country emerges from the latest lockdown restrictions and hospitality opens up once again."  

Key contacts: Kevin McGlone, Melanie Williams, Jamie McLean, Alan Glen, Mikela Rochford, Rachael Burke and Jonathan Barron.
