A 17-bedroom mansion owned by famous husband and wife duo Steph and Dom Parker has now sold.
The stunning Salutation Hotel in Sandwich was put on the market earlier this year by the former Gogglebox stars for nearly £5 million.
The Grade I listed hotel is set within 3.5 acres of land and boasts a stately dining room, drawing room, boot room, panelled library, study, and "other less formal but well-proportioned receptions", as well as two kitchens, a cloakroom and storerooms.
There are 17 bedrooms, some ensuite - and one with its own living room - plus a wrap-around galleried landing, and 14 bathrooms in total.
The gardens are listed by English Heritage and include a large pond with its own island.
The Salutation rose to fame as the country hotel run by charismatic Gogglebox duo Steph and Dom Parker.
They bought the sprawling estate in 2004 and after their appearances on the Channel 4 reality show, which began in 2013, opened it as a hotel in 2017.
But last year the company running the business went bust and all 33 employees were sent home.
Liquidators stepped in the following month.
Dom revealed the couple hoped it would reopen as a hotel but that they would be selling it.
Aylesford-based estate agents Rafferty & Pickard are now listing the Knightrider Street hotel as "sold subject to contract". The asking price was for £4,750,000.
It is not known if the new owner plans to use the estate as a hotel or private home.
