Following on from my post last year about Ruth Rendell’s house-sale, here is some more property news of interest to crime fans.
Jamaica Inn, owned (at different times) by Daphne du Maurier and Alistair MacLean, is now on sale with the asking price of £2 million.
Jamaica Inn was built in 1750 as a coaching inn between the Cornish towns of Launceston and Bodmin. Its reputation as a den of smugglers inspired du Maurier’s book – which will of course be appearing in a new adaptation this Easter.
The inn features her writing desk and other possessions.
Let me know if you buy it.
