It was sold at auction in 2017 before being put up for sale again in November 2018 with a guide price of £2 million.

Though the 18th-century property has stood empty for the last few years, a "high net-worth individual" has now bought it with the intention to run it as a business - either as a hotel or separate lodges.

The house stands on 50 acres of land and looks out across the Bristol Channel to Wales.

The sale has given locals hope it will receive a fresh lease of life and help Wordsworth's memory live on.

Liz Fuller, from the campaign group Save, said it was promising news as the house had "deteriorated quite a lot" and was in "poor condition".

"This is a remarkable house with a rich history and clearly needs urgent help to prevent it from standing empty any longer," she told The Guardian.

"It has been on the market for a while now, so this new development is encouraging. We very much hope that the prospective purchasers will bring the house back to its former beauty and find a viable use for it whether as a hotel or otherwise."
