James Bond is having quite an effect on Cornwall's popularity as a destination, according to licensed property agent Scott Burridge Chick Leisure.

Much of the latest Bond film, Die Another Day, is being filmed at the Eden Project in Cornwall and some of the beaches in the north of the county have been doubling as North Korea.

The new National Maritime Museum small boat collection has recently opened in Falmouth and the county is more popular than ever.

As summer approaches a surge in tourist numbers is being predicted, and this has been reflected in an increase in demand for licensed property.

One example is the Commodore Inn, which has just been sold by Scott Burridge Chick Leisure.

The pub is a unique waterside freehouse on the north Cornish coast at Porthtowan. It has a large bar, function room and children's room. Because its new owners already have a pub named the Phoenix, the Commodore has been renamed the Unicorn in keeping with the mythological theme.

Porthtowan itself is benefiting from the increased interest in Cornwall and has been the focus for much investment and development.

The Commodore Inn was sold for an undisclosed sum with offers in the region of £350,000 for the freehold interest.
