Trewellard Manor Farm is ideally located just off the stunning scenic coast road from St Ives to Land’s End, on the edge of Trewellard village. The owner lives on-site and Barncott and Cowslip both stand detached. The former has exposed stone walls in the living room, and the latter has a double bedroom with a sea view and which houses a large feature grain lift, testimony to its past farming heritage. Penny Farthing is a delightful two storey, semi-detached stone barn, converted from an original farm building to provide very comfortable and well-equipped reverse level accommodation.
This north western tip of Cornwall is generally accepted as the most unspoilt area of the county, with its magnificent relics of ancient tin mines and its Celtic heritage. The area is used extensively in the current popular TV series, Poldark, and is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Trewellard village provides a choice of restaurants and three pubs all within walking distance, along with local stores and a pottery and craft shop. St Just, a short drive or bus ride away, has its own selection of shops, restaurants and pubs.
Evidence of its past mining history can be seen dotted around including the famous Crown Mines, engine houses perched on the cliff face which are visible on the popular coastal walk. The Geevor Tin Mine and Heritage Centre is just a few hundred yards away as is the Levant steam engine, which can be seen working on certain days. Cape Cornwall Club is 3 miles away and open to all. This is a stunning and challenging golf course overlooking the Brisons Rocks.
This area offers dramatic scenery, beautiful coves, beaches and miles of heather-clad moorlands.
