Jamaica Inn

Jamaica Inn is Under New Ownership!

We are delighted to announce that Jamaica Inn has officially changed hands, and is now owned by Surrey based business man Allen Jackson. This is the first time in 40 years that the Inn has had a new owner, and it was snapped up by Allen Jackson within an hour of his first ever visit to the Inn.

Jamaica Inn famously inspired Daphne du Maurier’s iconic novel of the same name, and is an important part of Cornish history. Allen saw this as a great opportunity to purchase Cornwall’s most iconic and famous inn and can’t wait to progress all of the exciting changes that he has planned. The first change which was made was to welcome dogs, which is proving to be very popular with locals and visitors alike.

The Inn was originally placed on the market in early January 2014 by Christie & Co, who confirmed that the sale received an extraordinary amount of interest – with enquiries from as far afield as America, Canada and Australia!

Allen is delighted with the acquisition; “I intend to breathe new life into this fantastic and historic location. Providing traditional and high levels of service are core to what I will be offering in the future”.

With the BBC adaptation of du Maurier’s novel set to air around Easter, this is an exciting time for Jamaica Inn. Watch this space for further news and updates!
