Start quote Unique redevelopment opportunity in a sought after location End quote



Trelew Farm is nestled in an idyllic wooded valley that runs down to Mylor Creek and Church Road, one of the most desirable and sought after addresses in South Cornwall; winding its way along the south bank of this pretty creek from the village of Mylor Bridge to the church and yacht marina at Mylor Churchtown.

The village of Mylor Bridge is a thriving community with a primary school, public house, newsagent/post office, grocery store, butchers, Creekside cricket field and boatyard. Mylor Yacht Harbour is positioned at the entrance to Mylor Creek where it joins the extensive sailing waters of Carrick Roads.

A few miles to the south is the University town of Falmouth, with its fascinating maritime heritage, high quality restaurants and current reputation as one of the most popular cultural destinations in the south west.

About 10 miles to the north, the cathedral city of Truro provides a good choice of state and private education, a large range of high street shops and mainline rail link to London Paddington. There are daily flights to London from Newquay Airport.

Further Information


Trelew Farm consists of a Grade II listed 3/4 bedroom farm cottage along with a U-shaped range of traditional barns, situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in need of total refurbishment and renovation. In addition there are a number of stone and timber outbuildings that could be reinstated and replaced to provide ancillary external storage and garaging.

A private drive runs from Church Road to the house, with traditional stone gateposts and walls in various positions that could be reclaimed from nature and reinstated to their former glory.

The land, extending to approximately 6.2 acres, consists of two paddocks and a wooded valley with stream, providing a fantastic opportunity to create a wonderful valley woodland garden, quite unique in such a popular area.


Advice has been received from Cornwall Council with regards to a ‘restoration of listed farm cottage and new single dwelling on site of outbuildings', with reference PA17/01307/PREAPP. Interested parties should familiarise themselves with the whole contents of the report, which concludes that ‘The conversion of the outbuildings to a dwelling is accepted provided the proposal respects the historic and architectural integrity of the listed building, setting of other listed buildings and conserves the landscape and scenic value of the AONB…' Details of the advice can be obtained from the Council website or provided by Savills.


The existing farm cottage is connected to mains electricity, water and telephone services, although the meters are likely to have been terminated and made safe due to the current use of the proper ty. Drainage would be expected to be via a private system, taking advantage of the gradients and natural drainage provided by the site. Interested parties should make their own investigations as to the likely costs of reinstatement of the services.

Footpaths, Covenants and Easements

A public footpath runs along the first part of the driveway, before being diverted through the woodland, over the stream and onto neighbouring land.


The boundaries are primarily indicated by traditional walls and hedgebanks, overgrown with vegetation in places
Buyers should rely on the boundaries as noted on the registered title documentation.
