Equestrian heaven: Enjoy country life in Cornwall at this property, with acres of scope!

For equestrian enthusiasts, countryside lovers and anyone seeking a great lifestyle and investment opportunity (minus the £1m+ price tag!) it doesn’t get much better than The Barn, our latest Cornish property situated in the village of Garland, Wheal Rose.

Overall, the lucky new homeowner will enjoy 6 bedrooms in two separate detached properties, and 1.8 acres which include gardens, a field, stables and a paddock. 

This tucked-away rural home in Cornwall is a dream – not just for horse owners but for anyone who loves the countryside and is looking for space to roam – and potentially an investment opportunity too.

Before you gallop off and book that viewing, here’s some more info to fuel those rural dreams…

The Barn is located in the village of Wheal Rose near Scorrier – an under-the-radar spot which enjoys great access to the North Cornish coast at Portreath, Porthtowan and St Agnes. 

Though you wouldn’t know it, you can be on the A30 in moments, making this a great location for accessing the whole of West and Mid Cornwall.  

There’s an excellent local food store in walking distance; Etherington’s Farm Shop sells locally reared meat, freshly cooked pasties and an array of local food and drink products. Tehidy Country Park is just a few miles away and offers many miles of woodland footpaths which are great for running, walking and cycling throughout the seasons. 

This is the heart of Cornwall’s historic mining country, something which is evident right from the doorstep of this property. Nearby Chapel Porth is set in a mining valley and is owned and looked after by the National Trust. The dramatic ruins of the old Wheal Coates tin mine are perched on the cliffs, and walks along the South West coast path near here promise stunning views.

If you can tear yourself away from exploring all this, your own rural idyll awaits at home. Whether or not you choose to keep horses in any of the four stables, or put the paddock and adjoining field to another use, we are convinced that the new owners will find plenty to occupy themselves behind the private gates of this property.

Gardeners will be keen to get stuck in, making the most of the landscaped areas, decking and seating spaces; there’s huge potential here to put your own stamp on the outdoor space, which gives way to open countryside and stunning rural views. 

The main house is a characterful cottage – once a barn – which now boasts unusually large and bright rooms for this type of property. 

The comfortable living room features an impressive stone fireplace fitted with a beautiful modern multi-fuel burner. This room, along with the spacious dining room nearby, features exposed beams adding warmth and character. 

Large archways connect the downstairs rooms, giving a modern, open-plan feel and a nice flow to these living spaces. The fifth bedroom downstairs could also be used as a handy office, giving this property the added benefit of great home working potential. 

Upstairs you’ll find four bedrooms (three spacious doubles and one smaller single room) and a family bathroom. 

Throughout the decor, flooring, fixtures and fittings are contemporary and practical – a perfect homely retreat after a day enjoying the great outdoors.  

The one-bedroom annexe makes The Barn perfect for a multi-generational family, and would also make ideal guest accommodation with income potential. 

Everything is within easy reach and yet this is a bright, spacious property in it’s own right (it shares a driveway with the main house but there’s ample parking for both). 

There’s a fully-fitted kitchen/diner, a dual aspect lounge leading to the decking and sunken private terrace, a useful utility room, and a comfortable double room with en-suite shower room.

So, if you love the outdoors, are searching for a practical equestrian property, want the rural lifestyle with great access to the rest of Cornwall, or want scope and space for a new project, call us today!
