A once in a lifetime opportunity to secure this exciting collection of properties set in the centre of its’ own land. The land which is currently farmed, surrounds the property and further land is available by separate negotiation. Approached by a private road which leads to the main collection of farm buildings, the opportunity to create a truly spectacular collection of properties, once fully restored is extremely rare in this location.

Properties of this type rarely become available in this ever popular Cornish Parish providing an excellent opportunity to refurbish and restore an extensive collection of existing farmhouses and farm buildings. Utterly unspoilt by modern development, the buildings include the main Grade Two listed farmhouse, a further farmhouse, large two storey milking parlour, two storey field barn, workshop barn and cattle yard barn. The existing farmhouses both require some updating and the farm buildings are capable of creating further accommodation (subject to the necessary planning consents).

Trefresa Farm is located on the edge of the village of Rock which is a sought after destination on the North Cornwall coast and renowned for its outdoor leisure facilities including; sailing, canoeing, water skiing, gig rowing, windsurfing, golf and scenic coastal walks. The area also boasts a choice of fine beaches and good, year round shopping facilities. Locally, there are a wealth of excellent restaurants and pubs including; The St Enodoc Hotel and The Mariners Pub in Rock, Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Port Isaac, Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant and Paul Ainsworth’s No. 6 in Padstow. The ferry and water taxi make travelling to Padstow both enjoyable and easy. The market town of Wadebridge, with an excellent range of independent shops, is approximately five miles distant. Rail and air connections are at Bodmin Parkway approximately 12 miles, and Newquay airport approximately 18 miles.

Sailing and watersports
Synonymous with top end UK holiday destinations, Rock and Polzeath provide a well-established centre for water sports, including dinghy racing, water-skiing, windsurfing and sailing. Both Rock and Padstow are protected and sheltered by the Camel Estuary. The water here is unusually calm and clear, making it perfect for water sports. Boat charter is available for those who do not own a craft and mooring is in abundance for those who do. At low tide Rock overlooks more than a mile of sandy beaches along to Daymer Bay, which is good for swimming and therefore popular with younger families. A little further on is Polzeath, which is more popular with surfers and where surfing tuition can be booked.
An excellent range of restaurants are within easy reach including the ** Michelin Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Port Isaac, the * Michelin Restaurant under Paul Ainsworth, No. 6 Padstow, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant at Watergate Bay and Rick Stein’s seafood restaurant in Padstow. The Dining Room in Rock is also highly regarded.
St. Enodoc Golf Course in Rock is one of the finest links courses in the country. The facilities at The Point near Polzeath are comprehensive including a restaurant, bar, fitness studio, indoor swimming pool and 18 golf course with private landing strip. Trevose golf club is also only a short drive away.
