An offer has been made to buy popular Isle of Wight attraction Robin Hill, around four months after it went up for sale.

Marketed through Savills, the country park is now listed as 'under offer'.

Although the value of the bid or identity of the bidder has yet to be disclosed, when it went up for sale in October, it was given a guide price of £2.25 million.

Parent company Vectis Ventures, which also runs Blackgang Chine, cited 'a prolonged period of financial turbulence' for the decision, adding the sale would enable it to clear its debt.

Just a month prior, bad weather and the economy were blamed for a 'challenging summer' as it shut earlier than planned.

Dozens of seasonal staff who worked for the company were let go.

Announcing it would go up for sale in October, owner Alexander Dabell said it "has been a privilege for my family to be the custodians of this fine site for nearly 30 years."

He said: “However, the stark reality of the economic picture is that without a sale, the debt created through Covid loans would need to be extended further into the future and would prevent investment in the short term.

“Robin Hill is being marketed as a going concern, and we have every hope that it will flourish under new ownership, when a suitable buyer can be found”.

At the time, Vectis Ventures announced its intention to focus on Blackgang Chine.
