Jamaica Inn, the 17-bedroom property on Bodmin Moor that provides the location for Daphne du Maurier’s thriller of the same name, is up for sale.
The Cornish inn, along with a sister hotel the White Hart in Okehampton, are on sale for £2 million and £900,000 respectively.
The sales are being handled by Christie & Co., on behalf of the hotels’ owner John Watts.
Mr. Watts bought Jamaica Inn in 1973 for £46,000 from the novelis Alistair MacLean.
The web site for Jamaica Inn describes the property as “Cornwall’s legendary coaching house … It has stood high on Bodmin Moor for over four centuries. We’re still referred to by historians as Cornwall’s most famous smuggling inn. These days we do welcome the more salubrious guest … and the odd ghost.”
