Fresh attempt to sell derelict hotel with lower guide price

The former Bridge House Hotel at Catterick Bridge.

A new attempt to sell off the derelict Bridge House Hotel, at Catterick Bridge, will be made this week.

Auctioneers will attempt to find a buyer for the building on Thursday.

The former 15-bedroom pub, restaurant and hotel was badly damaged by fire in February 2014 and restoration work has never taken place.

Attempts were made in 2017 to sell the building at auction, however it failed to sell.

Efforts were made twice in 2020 but the lot was twice withdrawn due to a lack of interest.

At that time the former hotel had a guide price of £300,000.

However, the building now has a guide price of £175,000 to £200,000.

The building was built in the 17th century and was formerly known as the George and Dragon Inn. It was also a private house in late 1700s to early 1800s.

It has been empty since the fire and it is understood it has suffered vandalism inside.

It was entered by so-called urban explorers in 2017 who posted eerie photos of the hotel with tables still set and pints still on the bar.
