Farleys’ corporate team, led by partner Richard Bell, has advised the owners of The Storrs Collection on its acquisition of Lindeth Fell Country House, a luxury B&B in the Lake District.

The Storrs Collection, which already owns Storrs Hall on the shores of Lake Windermere, has added the 14-bedroom Lindeth Fell Country House to its portfolio.

Lindeth Fell was built in 1907 and is set across seven-acres in Bowness-on-Windermere. Prior to it’s acquisition by the Storrs Collection, the property had been owned and run by the Kennedy family for almost 40 years, who had built up the business’ excellent reputation over the years leading to a number of awards including Guest Accommodation of the Year England from the AA and the AA Five Star grading with a Gold Award.

Andrew Nicholson, general manager of Storrs Hall, said:

“We’re proud to have added Lindeth Fell to The Storrs Collection and very much look forward to carrying forward the exceptional quality of the stewardship of the Kennedy family.

There is a synergy between Lindeth Fell and Storrs Hall; both are very special places, each with a rich and interesting history, in a spectacular setting, providing a warm and nurturing guest experience.

Lindeth Fell is the perfect addition to our portfolio and we can’t wait to work with the team there.

We wish the Kennedy family a happy, well-deserved retirement.”

Richard Bell of Farleys’ corporate team in Manchester advised The Storrs Collection on the deal and was assisted by Jodi Oosthuizen. Solicitor Molly Greenwood advised on the property aspects of the transaction.

Richard commented,

It was a pleasure to advise (along with the wider team here at Farleys) our client, The Storrs Collection on the latest acquisition to their portfolio. The addition of Lindeth Fell Country House makes great business sense and compliments the Collection’s already impressive offering in the Lake District.

I have no doubt that the very capable team at the Storrs Collection will build on the high standards already established at Lindeth Fell and I wish them a long, continued success on the banks of Lake Windermere.
