Great Engollan Farm is an impressive detached 5 bedroom farmhouse built of traditional Cornish stone construction and is surmounted by a natural slate roof and the property is believed to date back to the early Eighteenth Century.

The Farmhouse has been sympathetically extended and modernised over recent years although much of the original character has been retained including: slate flag-stone flooring, exposed beamed ceilings, sash windows and impressive inglenook natural stone fireplace.

A notable feature of the property is the 23'x 21'(7.01m x 6.40m) traditional Farmhouse Kitchen/Dining room with four oven oil-fired Aga which is complemented by hand-made kitchen units surmounted by granite work surfaces. This property benefits from oil-fired central heating, with two wood burning stoves set into original fireplaces.

Great Engollan Farmhouse offers spacious family accommodation with three Reception Rooms, 5 Bedrooms and on the top floor is a 31'(9.45m) Attic/Playroom/Office from which can be enjoyed far reaching views to the North Cornish Coast encompassing Trevose Headland & The Quies.

Great Engollan Farm enjoys a great deal of flexibility as the property also benefits from a fully self-contained annexe offering the opportunity for bed & breakfast or self-catering accommodation commanding a substantial rental income.

Impressive landscaped gardens extend to marginally in excess of 0.5 of an acre with sweeping lawns, slate patio and seating area which is complemented by a fresh water spring which supplies a well established garden pond.
