Buyers in the market for an historic coaching inn between Porlock and Lynmouth are being steered to the 18th century Blue Ball Inn, which is on the market for the first time in a decade.
The Blue Ball at Countisbury in North Devon, which comprises 16 bedrooms and a 120-cover restaurant, attracts large numbers of hikers and history enthusiasts generating net sales in excess of £720,000.
Ed Jefferson from Colliers International’s Hotels team said the popular inn, which has undergone several major refurbishments, was now on the market at the reduced price of £1,295,000.
He said: “Our clients acquired the property in 2007 when it was known as the Exmoor Sandpiper, before they embarked on an ambitious overhaul which included restoring the inn’s former name.”
The Blue Ball is also home to five separate public areas and a one/two-bedroom flat.
