Bawtry Hall - the Grade II listed former country house - has been sold for £1.6 million.

The building totals 45,755 sq ft (4,251 sq m) and sits within seven acres (three hectares) of formal and informal gardens.

Privately owned until 1939, the property has since been used by the RAF as a headquarters and meteorological office and later by Action Partners Corporation as a conference and training venue.

Victor Ktori, head of office at Savills Nottingham, said: “Predominantly built in Georgian brick, Bawtry Hall is an attractive building that’s rich in history making it an ideal setting for high quality office use which can be supported by events and conferences.

“As a result, the property generated lots of interest and we are pleased with the price secured on behalf of our client which represents fair value for the property in light of the considerable refurbishment required.”

Jason Cooper, managing director of new owners Bawtry Hall Property Ltd, added: “We are delighted to have acquired Bawtry Hall. We have a lot of exciting plans for both the building and its superb grounds. We shall initially move our video games businesses, PQube and Funstock, there and hopefully, look forward to it becoming, once again, an integral part of Bawtry society. It also fits perfectly with our continued strategy of establishing our property portfolio in and around the South Doncaster region, especially Bawtry, and we are looking for more sites”.

David Ware, chairman of Action Partners Corporation, is thankful that “Bawtry Hall and its staff have been able to contribute so much to the local Christian and business community and that it has been a place of blessing to so many over the last 25 years”.
