Court Farmhouse nestles in the heart of this pretty rural village alongside the Parish Church. Gwennap Churchtown is a Conservation Area, part of a World Heritage Site and in the 18th and 19th Centuries when tin and copper mining was at its peak, the area was regarded as the "Richest square mile in the old world".
Around 7 miles from both coastlines and readily accessible to Truro, Falmouth and the A30, this central position makes the Gwennap area particularly desirable. The north coast has great sandy surfing beaches (with the nearest at Porthtowan) whilst the south has the sailing/boating waters of the Carrick Roads at Falmouth or Mylor Yacht Harbour.
The nearby rural village of Frogpool offers The Cornish Arms public house and Cusgarne Primary School is readily accessible. Approximately three miles distant is the village of Perranwell Station, which provides a range of amenities including general stores/post office, The Royal Oak and primary school. There is also a branch line railway station connecting with the mainline station at Truro, which in turn connects with London Paddington.
The Cathedral City of Truro lies approximately nine miles distant and is a vibrant shopping centre with many national retailers represented. There is also a variety of well established local stores, indoor and outdoor markets, cobbled streets and alleyways which give this City its unique character.THE PROPERTY
