Fowey hotel owner forced to put property back on the market after just a year

Old Ferry 4

A hotel in Fowey has been put back on the market by its owner who acquired the property just last summer.

The Old Ferry Inn in Bodinnick was bought by Bob Seabourne last year, who carried out an extensive infrastructure refit, but personal reasons have now forced him to put the property back on the market at £1.2m for the freehold.

Originally a coaching inn, the Old Ferry Inn is said to have been serving travellers since the 13th century and comprises 11 bedrooms with sea views, plus a bar, restaurant and river terrace.

There is also a two-bedroomed private flat with lounge and family bathroom for the owners. 

Ed Jefferson from Colliers International’s comments: “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, commented: “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.”
