Situation - Borough Farmhouse is located on the rural outskirts of the 18th century town of Torpoint in South East Cornwall which lies opposite the maritime city of Plymouth and linked by car ferry.

The nearby village of Antony boasts a pub, farm shop and cafe, and there is a sought after primary school within the village. There are a number of footpaths and bridle ways giving access to the surrounding countryside for walking and riding, along with a golf course nearby.
The maritime City of Plymouth is a short hop across the car ferry away with all the amenities of a large modern city. The area is served by excellent schools, both in the public and private sectors including Plymouth College
Active pursuits are available locally including shooting, fishing and horse riding. Opportunities for sailing are excellent and extensive.
