Planning permission for the conversion of the stone barns into three residential dwellings was approved under application no. PA18/00793 dated 4th April 2018. The approved plans provide for interesting well proportioned accommodation comprising one 2 bedroom unit with reverse level accommodation and two 3 bedroom units with large open plan living, dining room and kitchens. Full details are available from Cornwall Council’s on-line planning portal -

On the lower side of the yard there are 3 Cubicle Sheds (48’6’’ x 22’3’’ and 2 x 45’ x 22’) of timber frame with timber cladding, corrugated iron or box profile sheeted roofs, wooden cubicles on raised concrete standings and central dung passages.

Opposite the cubicle sheds there is a concrete block open Silage Clamp (80’ long) with concrete floor and a stone sided section to the rear. The large concrete areas between the farm buildings were used as a collecting/feeding yard for the cows when Little Dowran Farm had a milking herd.

The farm is contained within a ring fence with interconnecting gates and long frontage to two roads and good vehicular access over the existing farm entrance and yard. From the land, particularly the elevated parts, one is able to take full advantage of the far reaching open views.

In all the property extends to 46 acres or thereabouts. The total productive land extends to just under 44 acres, of which roughly 7¾ acres is suitable for grazing only, the remainder being currently down to pasture and equally suitable for growing crops such as early potatoes, brassicas or maize etc.

All in all Little Dowran Farm is an individual rural property offering comfortable family accommodation with land, making it suitable as a livestock, arable, equestrian or hobby farm, with planning permission approved for three new dwellings as part of the barn conversions, ideal for a holiday letting business or an extended family etc.

The property is just a short distance from spectacular stretches of the rugged south west coastline with its sheltered coves, fine sandy beaches and stunning cliff top walks.

The picturesque sandy beach at Sennen Cove, popular with families and surfers alike, is approximately 4 ½ miles distance. Land’s End is about 5 ½ miles away with the airport being about 2 miles away and providing regular flights to the Isles of Scilly.

The harbour town of Penzance with its excellent maritime facilities, shops, supermarkets, schools, colleges and hospital is approximately 6 ½ miles away. The town has regular passenger ferry services to the Isles of Scilly as well as a mainline railway station with services to London Paddington.
