The former coaching inn has been providing bed and board for travellers on the old London to Penzance road for almost 400 years.

The business posted net sales to June 30 2017 of £520k and there is the potential to transform current owners accommodation into extra bedrooms.

Seller Ed Jefferson from Colliers International believes there is much scope to take business forward at the Old Ferry Inn.

Ed Jefferson from Colliers International: “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,” he said.

“The ferry is as busy as ever and there is plenty to keep visitors in the area as there are opportunities for sailing and watersports, sea fishing, golf, and a whole host of significant historic houses and gardens.”
