About Us

25 years in-depth knowledge and industry experience

CROSTHWAITES was set up to take on the specialist leisure & hotels business of Strutt & Parker, a leading national firm of property consultants, where Colin Crosthwaite FRICS was a Partner and Head of its highly regarded leisure team.

We have earned a reputation for professionalism, integrity and achieving results. This success is based on the in-depth knowledge and industry experience that the team has built up over more than 25 years.

We provide a highly personal service combined with straight-talking advice on a broad range of trade related property. Our detailed knowledge of the finances and trading potential of leisure businesses is crucial in providing robust and reliable guidance for our clients.


We have wide experience across a range of leisure, hotel and trade related property.


Marinas & Boatyards

We have specialised in the marine sector for over 20 years. Our extensive high level contacts in the sector and in-depth knowledge of the market enable many transactions to be undertaken discreetly off-market, without staff or customers being aware.


The team, with Charles Greville-Heygate, is one of the most experienced on golf property in the UK. We have built up a comprehensive understanding of the finances of golf businesses and can provide up-to-the-minute advice to clients.

Health & Fitness

We have been at the forefront of the UK health club sector from the demise of the squash club to the development of large family orientated racquet clubs, and now budget gyms.

Hotels & Holiday Property

We regularly advise on hotels, especially those combined with other leisure facilities such as spas, health clubs and golf courses.


Racecourses are an exciting and incredibly complex business involving a wide range of income sources, including media rights, Levy grants and non-racing income from other functions, concerts and conferences. Many racecourses have hotels, golf courses, caravan parks, and health clubs.

Trade related property

We regularly advise on more unusual properties where value is also related to the trading potential – the type of work that relies on specialist expertise as extensive as ours.

Whatever the task - transactional or advisory - our aim is to offer the highest possible standards of service and expertise to our clients
