The Old Ferry Inn in Bodinnick near Fowey has been brought to the property market for £1.2m.
Ed Jefferson from Colliers International’s hotels team said the owner had only bought the hotel last summer and had carried out an extensive infrastructure refit, but personal reasons had forced him to put the property back on the market at £1.2m for the freehold.
Originally a coaching inn, the Old Ferry Inn continues to cater for travellers, offering 11 letting bedrooms – including 10 doubles – with sea views as well as a bar, restaurant and river terrace. There is also a two-bedroomed private flat with lounge and family bathroom for the owners.
Jefferson said: “This genuine, characterful inn makes an ideal stopover for people taking one of the main walking routes which begin and end at the property – and the steady stream of motorists heading further into the peninsula.”
Bob Seabourne, the vendor, added: “I fell in love with the property the first time I saw it, the location is wonderful but sadly I have decided to sell up and return to Somerset.”
