Full description

A property of exceptional quality with opportunity to develop holiday letting business. 3 Bedroom residence (Master ensuite), 5 fully fitted and equipped letting cottages, gardens, stable block. 8.9 Acres.


Enjoying an exceptionally peaceful and rural location, Olde Pensipple has been developed from a magnificent and traditional range of Cornish stone and slated farm buildings. The existing farm no longer carries stock and is now down to crop production. Although enjoying a considerable degree of seclusion this property is far from isolated in this popular tourist area on the South Cornwall coastal hinterland. The famous fishing port of Looe is 7 miles and the picturesque postcard setting of the harbour at Polperro is 10 miles. Many coastal beauty spots and vast expanses of Bodmin Moor are all close at hand. The market town of Liskeard is 4 miles to the north and here one can enjoy a wide variety of shops, out of town stores, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries as well as educational facilities to A-level standard. As well as an indoor sports centre the town enjoys football, rugby and cricket clubs. Looe has a testing 18-hole golf course within 5 miles of the property. Access onto the A38 is 3 miles and this brings the City of Plymouth to within 18 miles. As well as a mainline railway station at Liskeard train connections are also at Plymouth as well as an airport with many UK destinations and cross channel ferry port with regular services to Northern France and Spain.


Set back from an extremely quiet single track parish road, this property is approached over a short gravelled entrance drive leading to ample car parking space to accommodate some eight/ten vehicles. Access to the main residence and stable yard is further beyond.
