Immediately to the front of Tregonniny and running the length of the property is a south facing, stone terrace with steps and ramp leading down to extensive terraced lawns together with a pond, partly bordered by attractive stone walls. The garden, particularly given the mild climate, offers potential to establish a garden of some merit. Surrounding the property are a number of paddocks laid to permanent pasture with substantial partly stoned walling and mature hedge banks ideally suited to equestrian or smallholding use.

The Land
The land at Tregonniny comprises a varied mix of approximately 95 acres of productive arable and pastureland, steeper permanent grassland; rich in wildlife and approximately 90 acres of mixed woodland.

The soil comprises a silty loam and given the mild climate the arable land would readily lend itself to vegetable and bulb growing. The less productive steeper land provides livestock grazing or would be suitable for equestrian use. To the west of the main holding is a former stone quarry which has been partially landscaped to create a pond. Further work is required here to finish the project but much of the work has been done.
The woodland which comprises both commercial stands of timber as well as traditional deciduous woodland is located in an arc on the sides of the hill on which the farm sits. The woodland provides sporting interest as well as potential for a variety of diversified income streams, subject to the usual planning process.

Modern Farm Buildings
To the west of the main courtyard there are two modern agricultural buildings. The clear span building has been erected in the relatively recent past, is in a good state of repair and would be ideally suited to a variety of uses. The earlier cattle shed is somewhat dilapidated but provides useful footprint for alternative uses or, with renovation, would be a useful livestock building.
