UK: The 18th century Boscundle Manor, near St Austell in Cornwall, has been sold to a local couple for a price of nearly £1.3m.

Jason Jones and Louise Uys-Jones, experienced hospitality figures, purchased the manor from Colliers International. 

Ed Jefferson, Colliers’ hotel team representative said: "Boscundle Manor was originally built as a manor house and has been a hotel for more than 30 years."  

The original manor was constructed as the home of the mine captain of one of the most profitable tin mines in Cornwall, the Wheal Eliza Consoles. The property itself is set in the midst of 1.7 acres of landscaped grounds, which features 13-en-suite letting suites and indoor swimming pool, bar and lounge areas.

Jason Jones said of the purchase: “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.”

Cornish hospitality has been in a period of flux at the moment. While the early year saw growth, with Expedia Group research demonstrating international interest, much of the industry has been halted due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
