The Old Corn Mill, Gweek


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
This three bedroom apartment offers spacious and well proportioned accommodation and is set in 'The Old Corn Mill' which we understand was converted some 30 years or so ago. The property is set close to the head of the creek in the popular Gweek village which has a village store, public house and restaurant, the renowned Seal Sanctuary plus village hall as well as a very active community. Gweek also benefits from the boatyard offering direct access to launch to the Helford River as well as the boatyard cafe. The market town of Helston is approximately 3 miles away, whilst Falmouth and Truro are both within a 35 minute drive. Within a few minutes drive are many coves and creeks on the renowned Lizard Peninsula including Helford, Coverack, Cadgwith and The Lizard which is the UK's mainland most southerly point. Being offered for sale with the benefit of no onward chain and having had new aluminium windows throughout this is a super opportunity not to be missed.
