One of Cornwall's most famous pubs has been sold for £2m.

Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor was made famous by Fowey's Daphne du Maurier.

It was put up for sale in January.

Now a Surrey businessman has bought it and says he wants to breathe new life into it.

Immortalised in Daphne du Maurier’s bestselling novel and once owned by the thriller writer Alistair McLean, Jamaica Inn was built in 1750.

Allen Jackson made an offer whilst en route back to Surrey, an hour after first viewing the Inn and now plans to divide his time between Surrey and Cornwall.

Interest was received from as far afield as America, Canada and Australia.

Its new owner said: “I am delighted to have acquired Jamaica Inn and 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. And, of course with the BBC adaption of du Maurier’s novel airing around Easter, I believe it is a very timely acquisition."
