Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A unique opportunity to purchase a new lifestyle in Cornwall! A well respected former pottery, gift shop, tea room and B&B with separate owners accommodation in one of the most attractive Sylvan areas of Cornwall.

IN THE OWNER'S WORDS
"It is with great sadness that we have decided to sell our home. We love the area of Lamorna, with its wonderful flowers and trees and so close to beaches and country walks. We have met so many interesting people and made real friends of our regular customers. However we are both now ready for retirement to have the time to travel."

PROPERTY
The property consists of two large detached dwellings sitting to the north of large gardens in the beautiful Lamorna Valley.
The larger of the two properties is currently used as a shop and tea room with five bedroomed B&B accommodation above. However the building could be converted back in to a large family home with 3-4 reception rooms, 4 bedrooms, conservatory, large garden and private parking (subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions) without substantial change to the fabric of the building. The building is of granite construction and has double glazing throughout and gas central heating.
Next door is a detached double garage with adjoining pottery and large storage area which once housed stables. The garage and pottery has a recently lapsed Planning Permission (2015 PA12/00039) for conversion into an additional holiday letting flat. Above this is the owners flat.
Again, subject to obtaining necessary planning permissions, this property could potentially be converted in to a single dwelling having a private garden and established parking areas.

The Garden has a collection of picnic tables allowing for a further 50 covers.

Adjacent to the pottery is a former stable with two loose boxes. This is currently used as an additional storage area.

SURROUNDING AREA
Lamorna, just five miles West of Penzance, is renowned for the artists working in the area during the first quarter of the 20th century. It retains this artistic tradition largely inspired by the quality of light, the lovely woodland valley and stream that flows down to rugged Lamorna Cove.
There are primary schools at Mousehole and St Buryan, while Penzance offers local shopping, college, secondary schools and health facilities. St Ives, with further artistic interest, notably the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Studios, is twelve miles away. Lands End (8 miles) and St. Michaels Mount (11 miles) are nearby, drawing plenty of custom to the area. There are abundant local opportunities for beach and water sports, golf and, of course, wonderful walking on the Cornish Coastal Footpath.

A BRIEF HISTORY
The Lamorna Pottery opened in late 1948 and was in production by the middle of 1949. It was set up by Chris Ludlow and Derick Wilshaw. Ludlow had run a china and glass shop in St. Ives before the war, and did not want to resume his old occupation when he left the RAF at the end of the war. He joined Butters Ltd of Stoke on Trent as a trainee potter and there he met Chris Ludlow who came from a family of potters and was a good thrower.
Ludlow took Wilshaw back to Cornwall and they set up their pottery in a building known as The Old Milk Factory in Lamorna Valley. They were helped by Bernard Leach of the Leach Pottery in St. Ives who pointed them towards sources of supply for their materials and experienced potters who could help them out.
Today the pottery is well known for its range of colourful glazed pottery, in the colours which reflect the surrounding landscape - blues, browns and a hint of green.
