Tredethy Farm is located within a renowned farming area in North Cornwall and just a short distance from the sandy beaches and excellent restaurants at Rock, Polzeath & Padstow as well as the rugged expanses of Bodmin Moor.

Most of the farm sits on the hilltop above the picturesque hamlet of Helland Bridge where there is attractive, C15th and Grade 1 listed bridge that spans the River Camel. The traffic free Camel Trail passes through the hamlet, connecting the community with the coast at Padstow 15 miles away through picturesque countryside. The nearby village of St Mabyn provides a village church, a thriving public house and a primary school whereas Bodmin offers a wider range of facilities and a mainline railway station. The regional centres of Truro and Exeter are approximately 30 and 65 miles away.

Lot 1
Tredethy Farmhouse, West Cottage, East Cottage, Farm Buildings and Pasture & Arable Farmland
About 70.86 acres (28.67 ha)
Guide Price £2,250,000

Lot 1 offers an extensive property with three homes and substantial outbuildings and productive farmland, providing the potential for significant revenue. The main house provides six bedrooms and more than 3,000 sq. ft of attractive accommodation, while the two cottages offer three and four bedrooms respectively. The houses are all well located with excellent views over surrounding farmland.

Tredethy Farmhouse
Tredethy Farmhouse has spacious rooms with high ceilings and offers four comfortable reception rooms including a large drawing room with fireplace and a dual aspect. One large window provides splendid and far-reaching views across the surrounding countryside including across the adjacent paddock (within the farm) beyond the well stocked, mature garden. There is also a family room, a useful home study and a dining room with space for a family dining table, as well as a kitchen equipped with an Aga, integrated appliances and plenty of fitted units for storage.

Upstairs there are six double bedrooms, including the principal bedroom with its large en suite bathroom which has a freestanding roll-top bathtub and a separate shower unit. The first floor also has a family bathroom.

The farmhouse has some useful outbuildings within the grounds, a mature side and rear garden again with excellent views, and a delightful apple orchard to the rear. The garden overlooks the adjoining paddock, helpful for keeping a close eye on livestock or horses enhancing the excellent amenity of this piece of land.

West Cottage & East Cottage
The two detached cottages sit in large plots on the opposite side of the road from the farmhouse and have extensive gardens and space for extension. They each have a sitting room, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor and West Cottage has four bedrooms thanks to a ground floor garage conversion whereas East Cottage has three bedrooms.

There are various stone outbuildings in the garden of West Cottage providing excellent general storage.

Farm Buildings
There is a large steel portal frame building at the farmyard which is divided into three bays internally and has a full width lean-to front extension. Together these provide over 1,300 sq.m (14,000 sq.ft.) of concreted floor space with a range of potential uses (subject to planning). There are sheep handling facilities to the side, leading out to the paddock with the ground mounted solar panels, and there is access through to the farmland at the rear. A metal-clad former grain store connects the portal frame barn to the traditional range.

The main stone barn in the typically Cornish traditional range has two storeys with an external stone staircase and partly houses the old grain handling & storage equipment. It fronts into a courtyard which is enclosed by several single storey barns, has separate access onto the road and backs onto a paddock and East Cottage’s large garden. Together with various smaller barns which also front onto the road and back onto the paddock, this lot has significant potential for alternative uses and development if required (subject to planning).

Included with lot 1 is around 55 acres of highly productive arable farmland across 4 very good-sized and adjoining fields, plus around 10 acres of pasture paddocks with private water.

The farmland
The arable farmland is highly productive ground with free draining soils and good sized, level fields capable of growing a range of commercial crops. The areas of the farm laid to grass are well suited to grazing livestock. The land is shown on the Agricultural Land Classification maps as Grades 2 & 3 and is predominantly identified on the Cranfield University soil maps as Soilscape 6 – ‘Freely draining loamy soils’ suitable for range of spring and autumn sown crops and with a long grazing season.

There is also excellent sporting appeal at Tredethy Farm, being adjacent to a long-established game shoot. Parts of the farm have been let for cover crops in previous years but the sporting rights are currently in hand.
