Experienced hotel operators acquire Boscundle Manor in ‘Poldark country’ Cornwall


Grade-II listed Boscundle Manor has been acquired by new owners Jason and Louise Uys-Jones off a guide price of £1.3m.

Louise is currently resort director at St Michaels Resort in Falmouth with the duo saying they had been ‘waiting and planning for this for more than 3 years’, on Instagram.

In July 2017, Boscundle Manor went on the market for the first time with an asking price of £1.1m.

Then early last year, the 18th century, three-star property went up for sale for £1.25m for the freehold with Colliers International, on the instructions of the fixed charge receivers Steven Williams and David Acland of FRP Advisory LLP.

This situation was subsequently reversed, allowing the sale to proceed in the hands of Colliers’ vendor clients as a transfer of a going concern.

The hotel, near St Austell a mile away from the Eden Project, is situated in 1.7 acres and comprises 13 bedrooms, an indoor pool, bar, restaurant and two-bedroom cottage for the owners.

It has been a hotel for 40 years.

Jason Jones, new owner, added: “This has been a long-held desire for Louise and I, and it’s a chance to add our experience and passion into a small boutique hotel that has real character. We will evolve the property over the coming year to make what we hope is a place we would like to stay in, with a focus on guest comfort with a small hotel feel and service standards to match.

“Colliers International has been highly supportive during this purchase. At all times we felt the process was treated with respect, and we understood every stage we were at and what aspects required resolving as we progressed the transaction.”
