This landmark property is renowned Nationally & Internationally for its’ stunning & breath-taking location. It is presented on c.63 acres on what can only be described as a “one-off, unique setting”. It is steeped in history, originally built by The Norman Knight Raymond Les Gros (later known as Redmond) & portrays some of the most beautiful architectural design that can be found in any property of its’ kind. Surrounded by some of the most fabulous coastline in the South East and indeed throughout the country, it is absolutely oozing with potential for possibly Boutique Spa, Country Guest-house or many other commercial applications.

While in need of some extensive refurbishment, it maintains some of its’ unique feature including the remarkable hand carved feature stair-case, beautifully tiled entrance lobby/reception, magnificent fireplaces, unique architectural features (all with their own legendary stories and tales), to name but a few. The property has been featured extensively over the years on television, film, radio, historical writings, etc., and in fact, it would be a rare occurrence to speak to someone who does not know of the legendary building – such is the history of Loftus Hall. With its’ origins dating back to 1170, the building has had various re-incarnations with the current building having had varied uses including private home, a former hotel and recently a successful tourist destination. The lands are laid out in 6 divisions and is currently mostly down to tillage.
