The gardens were created by the present owners and provide colour and interest throughout the year; they are bisected by a small trout stream which leads to a duck pond. The pretty valley sides are a combination of wildflower meadow and woodland.

The house is situated in a very private setting and the surrounding countryside is also owned by the Cornwall Wildlife Trust. There is a highly-regarded 16th century inn just a mile away and  St Agnes is just over two miles, and has excellent shopping. The cathedral city of Truro is just seven miles away and there are at least four outstanding beaches within a short drive of the property.

The guide price is £1,150,000. For further information please contact Chesterton Humberts on 01872 278 288 or visit
