Barnsley House Hotel in the Cotswolds has been rescued from administration by Calcot Health and Leisure.

Administrator KPMG said that Barnsley House Hotel and facing property the Village Pub in Barnsley were sold to local hotel owner Calcot Health and Leisure yesterday.

Calcot Health and Leisure managing director Richard Ball said that Barnsley House Hotel, a Grade II-listed property built in 1697, was historically significant and his company would work with its management team to "develop it towards future success".

Barnsley House Hotel offers 18 rooms, a restaurant, bar, spa, conference facilities and a cinema.

KPMG continues to administer Bibury gastro pub the Catherine Wheel, which offers conference space, while its sale to a separate buyer is finalised.

KPMG joint administrator Jane Moriarty said: "During our trading period we have not made any redundancies and have honoured all deposits and bookings. I thank the customers and suppliers for their ongoing support in this difficult time, which has helped ensure this historic hotel and gardens continue for years to come and has contributed to the retention of 70 jobs."
