London: Kate Moss is apparently planning a quiet life at the seaside running a B&B with her rock-star boyfriend Jamie Hince.
The 36-year-old has fallen in love with the idea and has made an offer on a place to set up the business near the pretty town of Fowey in Cornwall.
The model and her beau want to buy Bodriggan, an impressive five-bedroom detached house in the village of Golant.
It has its own vineyard, fantastic views of the River Fowey and is on the market for 1.2million pound.
Party-loving Kate owns a London home and a country pile in Oxfordshire, but has told friends she wants to spend less time in the capital.
“She’s yearned for a seaside retreat for some time,” the Daily Mail quoted a close friend as saying.
“Jamie’s quite a bookworm so he turned her on to the Cornish writer Daphne du Maurier, who lived in Fowey, and since then Kate has been researching the area.
“They are planning to convert it into a luxury B&B for their friends,” the friend said.
Kate, who has said she wants a more healthy lifestyle, hasn’t seen the property yet, but has been showing friends pictures of the mock tudor home.
“Kate loves the idea of having a refuge for her rock ’n’ roll friends. She even has ideas about growing her own produce and adores the thought of running a B&B. It will be more a place for her friends to stay – I can’t see her renting rooms to total strangers,” a source said.
The couple, rumoured to have secretly wed this summer, seem set on the idea – they offered 5million pound for the Burgh Island Hotel in Bigbury on Sea, Devon, but were turned down.
