Tenure: Freehold

Small farm and equestrian facility conveniently placed for the cathedral city of Truro and harbour town of Falmouth, set in 24.8 acres.


Laity Farm is situated near the village of Ponsanooth, which is within easy and convenient driving distance of the University and harbour town of Falmouth. A rural and peaceful location, Laity Farm is surrounded by its own land. The nearby village of Ponsanooth has a strong community spirit with a highly regarded primary school, a pub, post office, chapel and church. The nearby historical nature reserve of Kennall Vale offers picturesque woodland walks with water falls and streams.


Laity Farm is a fine example of a classic Victorian farmhouse with generous proportions and a traditional layout. The main entrance porch leads, via a part glazed door with the original feature glass, to the entrance hallway with traditional tessellated flooring.

There are two main reception rooms; the sitting room has an open outlook, a fireplace with a classically designed surround, ornate coving and exposed wooden floor boards. The dining room also boasts classic features with fitted bookshelves, and enjoys views over the formal gardens to the front. To the rear the dual aspect kitchen is centred around the reconditioned four oven AGA. There is a large utility room with flagstone flooring and a Belfast sink. Access to the rear of the property is via the boot room. A family bathroom completes the downstairs accommodation.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms with good dimensions. The master bedroom is located to the front of the house and enjoys a dual aspect and exposed wooden floor boards. The second bedroom is also located to the front and has an open fireplace with a reclaimed surround and views over the gardens to the ponds.

Two further bedrooms are located to the rear and enjoy views over the land and the countryside beyond. A further family bathroom serves all four bedrooms and has a roll top bath with beautiful views over the gardens and grounds.


Sympathetically converted two storey barn, the ground floor currently used as an office / studio / sitting room with exposed beams and wood burner. Stairs lead to the upper storey providing useful storage space

Large two storey barn divided into a number of units, including a roundhouse barn, once used as a piggery. Re-roofed, glazed and rendered in 2010 with potential to convert (Subject to planning consent). This has the benefit of access to one of the fields.

Two sets of stables with seven loose boxes in total

Selection of further stone barns around a courtyard including a tack room, additional storage and the former two storey milking parlour which could potentially be renovatedinto a small cottage (subject to planning consent) with far reaching views to the Roseland and beyond.

Five further outbuildings including agricultural barns

Large open sided hay barn


Centrally positioned within private grounds of around 25 acres, Laity Farm's land is not affected by any public rights of way, footpaths or bridleways. In addition to the formal gardens which include several ponds, there are productive and well fenced paddocks and pastures ideal for those with an interest in horses or livestock. The majority of the fields are enclosed by traditional Cornish hedges. There is also a 55 x 25 metre sand school.


Private water supply to all fields. The current owners run a livery from the property, more information available on request. Some of the pasture has been let out in the past to neighbouring farmers for grazing.
