Kate Moss is planning to open a Bed and Breakfast hotel in Cornwall.
The supermodel is reportedly making plans to move to the South West English coast with rocker boyfriend Jamie Hince and seven-year-old daughter Lila Grace – whose father is publisher Jefferson Hack – and is hoping to buy a £1.2 million five-bedroom property and convert it into a luxury guest house.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: “She is desperate for a healthier lifestyle away from all the celeb parties for the sake of her health and for her daughter.
“Jamie is over the moon as he has been keen to get Kate to quit the capital for a while.”
Although she has not been to view the property – named Bodriggan and located in the village of Golant – Kate has reportedly shown pictures of it to all her friends. The property has a mock-Tudor styled fronting, and its own vineyard.
Another friend said: “She’s yearned for a seaside retreat for some time. 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 Bed and Breakfast for their friends.”
Although the couple want to convert the property to a guesthouse, it is not thought Kate will be offering rooms to the general public, instead reserving the spare rooms for her pals.
The source added: “It will be more a place for her friends to stay – I can’t see her renting rooms to total strangers.”
Kate and Jamie have previously bid to buy a property in Bigbury on Sea, Devon, in a different part of the South West coast, but their £5 million offer was turned down.
They have also reportedly been spotted househunting on the island of Stromboli, off Italy, where they are said to have tried to buy a plot of land to build a coastal home.
The house will be the 36-year-old beauty’s third UK property, after her base in London and a country retreat in the Cotswolds in Oxfordshire.
