The current owners have successfully run a holiday rental business (winning several Cornish tourism awards) and have built a reputation as an ideal location for small country house weddings. All this, of course, can be developed further if the new owners wish.
The area around the estate is 12 acres of manicured lawns, flower beds and mature wooded banks, as well as a field that is ideal for horseback riding.
