Old Ferry Inn in Cornwall on the market for £1.2m

The Old Ferry Inn at the Fowey River crossing in Bodinnick, Cornwall is on the market for £1.2m.

The 12-bedroom property, which retains three AA silver stars in the inn category, is owned and operated by husband and wife teams Pascal and Penny Rivault and David and Amanda Lewis. The Rivaults are now looking to downsize, while the Lewis's wish to retire.

The former coaching inn dates back to the 13th century, as does Ferryside, the former family home of writer Daphne du Maurier next door. The present building dates back to the 17th century.

Ed Jefferson from Colliers International, which is marketing the property, said: "The Old Ferry has bags of character. There is a wood burner and stone floor, the bar is packed with historical artefacts and local memorabilia and the views over the estuary are stunning.

"In addition to the fantastic location, the new owners have the option of taking on the suite of rooms presently used as staff accommodation. And with net sales to 30 June 2017 of £525,000 the Old Ferry is still bringing in plenty of business."
