A TRADITIONAL Cornish farmstead, surrounded by productive farmland, is available to let through Carter Jonas. 

Tregoweth Farm, which is set within an historic country estate, includes a three-bedroom farmhouse alongside traditional farm builings and around 123 acres of productive arable pasture and parkland. 

The farm sits within a mile of both Mylor Bridge and Penryn and is available to let as a whole by informal tender, with a long-term tenancy of up to 15 years. 

The holding’s traditional Cornish stone-built farmhouse has three bedrooms, a modern fitted kitchen with a separate dining room, and lounge. Outside, there is a concrete yard with timber and stone built farm buildings, which have been used as storage and workshop spaces.

Tregoweth Farm is a traditional farm, which the owners are hoping to continue, but proposals for diversification are welcome in applications for the tenancy. 

Caroline Raspison, Carter Jonas associate, said: “It is a great opportunity for a tenant to reside on-farm in a delightful location. 

“A timber-framed former cow kennel building could be adapted to be brought back into use as livestock housing, and there is scope for expansion of the yard, including into the former silage pit."

Previously the farm has been run as a mixed sheep and arable enterprise in rotation with wheat, barley, cauliflowers and grass. More recently some of the ground has been put into the winter bird food option under Mid Tier Countryside Stewardship.

The main block of around 68 acres surrounds the farmhouse and yard heading north-eastwards to wrap around Bagatelle Plantation – a piece of estate woodland – while a further block of around 20 acres sits on the other side of Bagatelle Lane, a private access track which the tenant will have a right of way, sloping northwards towards the stream.

The remainder of the land includes part of the estate’s parkland called Lawn Fields, accessed over Bagatelle Lane. Lawn Fields extends to approximately 35 acres and is a historic area of pasture, with mature in-field trees overlooked by the Georgian Manor, Enys House.

In recent years this land has been mown for hay, but previously grazed with sheep. The estate would like to see this land grazed again, and welcome any proposals for collaboration between the tenant and the adjoining Enys Gardens.

If you are interested, a view day is taking place on June 25. For more information contact the Carter Jonas Truro office.
