A 68 acre ringfenced farm with a historic farmhouse, 2 holiday cottages and a substantial farm building set in a tranquil and peaceful position in West Cornwall.


Situated half a mile outside the village of Nancegollan and 4 miles north of the town of Helston, Pengelly Farm is well located to access the wealth of opportunities West Cornwall has to offer.

The nearby village of Praze-an-Beeble has the usual amenities such as a village store and Post Office, church, village hall, pub, bakery, cricket club and village green/playground as well as a wider array of facilities and services due to its strategic location such as Surgery/Medical Centre, garage, financial adviser and lettings agent.

Virtually every part of West Cornwall is within a 45 minute drive, ranging from the nearby fishing harbour of Porthleven with its renowned food festival, the remote Lizard peninsula, the vibrant town of Falmouth with its University, harbour and sailing activities, the gentle and beautifully atmospheric Helford River, the administrative capital city of Truro with its cathedral and business services or the wilder north coast and Lands End peninsula with its range of surfing spots and wild coastal walks.

Mainline rail services and the A30 are located near Camborne, within 5 miles of the farm and with trains running direct to Penzance, Truro, Plymouth, Exeter and on to London, with national and international flights able to be taken from Newquay International Airport.

The proximity to this fantastically diverse range of facilities, services and destinations seems a far cry from the quiet, peaceful and tranquil setting of the farm, and will benefit both owners and visitors alike.

Situated centrally within West Cornwall, positioned within easy reach of both the north and south Cornwall coastlines, both of which are visible from the land at the top of the farm, Pengelly Farm provides a perfect opportunity for buyers to live in a peaceful, rural setting surrounded by land forming part of the property.

Currently able to generate significant income from the holiday cottages and a countryside stewardship agreement, the farm allows buyers to use the land as they wish, be it for agricultural, equestrian, amenity or wildlife purposes as well as potentially to expand and enhance the existing leisure enterprise.

Pengelly Farmhouse is a 1,155 sq ft, Grade II listed house, consisting of 2/3 bedrooms. Having undergone sensitive improvements over the last two years, the house faces south-west and overlooks the courtyard and holiday cottages and includes a plethora of traditional features such as exposed granite fireplaces, timber beamed ceilings and sash windows. To the rear of the farmhouse is a single storey range of traditional outbuildings, formerly kennels and stables.

The former kennels remain unaltered, the remainder now consists of a partially constructed single storey dwelling, named Red Ruby Diji, constructed to timber frame level. With consent for an additional one bedroom holiday cottage, its proximity to the farmhouse and with wonderful views out over the surrounding farmland, it has potential to be converted into accommodation ancillary to the house, potentially a further annex, gym, studio or home office, or to continue the construction of a further letting unit, any alterations to the current planning consent subject to obtaining the necessary additional permissions.

Opposite the farmhouse is a large slate roofed, stone/block wall garage with concrete floor and power, ideal for cars, boats, workshop or general storage purposes.

The property has two separate holiday cottages with consent for a third (partially constructed). Classic Cottages have provided estimated rental income for the three cottages in addition to the farmhouse, if it was to be let. Compiled in 2021, these indicate significant income earning potential, further details can be provided by the agent on request.

2 storey, 3 bedroom, reverse level house, currently successfully let via Classic Cottages –, property number 4815. Beautifully renovated in the last year and extending to approximately 1,171 sq ft, the upstairs open plan living accommodation enjoys open truss ceilings and exposed granite stonework. The living room overlooks the surrounding farmland with french doors leading out onto a south facing wooden balcony and into a garden complete with a wood-fired hot tub where you can watch the cows graze in the fields and the sun set. The principal bedroom benefits from an en-suite.

Having just been completed and with the final finishing touches being put to the house, Hydrangea is a brand new, 4 bedroom single storey barn conversion of a former cow shed. A spacious kitchen/living room with 5-panel sliding glazed doors lead out on a level, private south facing patio area also overlooking the surrounding farmland. Extending to 1,537 sq ft the open truss ceilings once again give a light and airy feel to the reception rooms, in addition to a large entrance hallway to aid circulation. 2 bedrooms enjoy en-suite bathrooms in addition to individual external doorways providing flexibility of use.

A new, 42m x 12m, 7-bay steel portal framed agricultural barn is located on the land, approximately 125m from the house and cottages. Only accessible via the farmhouse and farmyard area, providing security and control, the building has concrete walls with timber boarding above to three sides, and is open to the front out to the land. Immensely versatile in its nature and constructed to house the Ruby Red Devon cattle currently farmed at the property, its future use is wide-ranging, equestrian and general machinery/workshop storage being likely possibilities.
In addition, the yard area has a timber frame pole barn useful for a myriad of purposes.

The land extends to a total of 66.76 acres (27.01 hectares), all but 0.61 acres being productive grassland currently used to support a pedigree Ruby Red Devon suckler herd. The land gently slopes with a southerly aspect throughout and consists of 19 individual fields, each surrounded by established Cornish hedgebanks with mature trees and vegetation, being a haven for wildlife.

Providing a secure buffer encircling the house and cottages, long distance views to both the north and south coastlines can be seen from the top fields. The location and quality of the land, being classified as Grade 3 on the Agricultural Classification Map of England and Wales, along with the direct access to/from the public highway as it passes the periphery of the farm, would allow the land, or parts of the land, to be let for alternative uses to third parties without impinging on the dwelling area or depriving it of its control of the land immediately surrounding the house and cottages.

Approximately a third of the fields have been fenced and most of the field gateways replaced in the past two years as part of a mid tier countryside stewardship agreement, which focusses on low input grassland and hedgerow management, ideal for a farm with high wildlife and environmental credentials. The top fields located to the east of the farm have particular merit for additional leisure use, potential glamping units, by virtue of their independent road access, elevated position and long distance views to both the north and south coastlines, such use subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

The property is offered for sale by private treaty as a whole.

The freehold of the property is offered for sale, other than any short term holiday lettings that are booked in the holiday cottages.

Basic Payment Scheme entitlements are included in the sale as they apply to the land.

The farm is subject to a mid tier countryside stewardship agreement which commenced on 1st January 2022 and runs to 31 December 2026. Total value over the agreement is £28.866.95 for management activities and £69.601.55 for capital works. Further details can be provided by the agent.

The holiday cottage conversions have been carried out under planning application reference PA20/08878, and as per the conditions discharged under reference PA21/05416. The farm building was erected under prior approval rights, application reference PA21/06585. Further details can be found on the Cornwall council planning website – - or by request from the agent.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
