18th Century Mansion Brocket Hall Goes Into Administration

April 02 2015

The owners of the 18th century mansion, Brocket Hall, have gone into administration as debts have overwhelmed the company.

Winding up Petition Issued by HMRC

Brocket Hall International Ltd, which runs a hotel, conference centre, two golf courses, and the Auberge Du Lac restaurant, reportedly went into administration yesterday.

The Joint Administrators, Alix Partners, said the business will carry on trading and they will continue to work alongside an experienced industry operator, whilst they explore all of their options with a focus on the sale of the business. The Administrators are ensuring they honour all bookings and deposits, and that the golf club memberships are unaffected.

Joint Administrator Peter Holder had this to say:

“Brocket Hall and its magnificent grounds represents a fantastic opportunity in the luxury hospitality and leisure sector. We are confident there will be a significant number of interested parties in acquiring this truly unique and historic estate.”

It was reported that a poor period of trading lead to the business experiencing financial difficulties, which resulted in Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs issuing a winding-up petition.
