Gorgeous recently renovated five bedroom farmhouse, with gardens and grounds of circa 1.5 acres, including a former barn with planning permission for conversion.

The house sits on the beautiful Lizard Peninsula, named by The Times as one of the top ten places to live in the South West, and is nestled into the stunning countryside with the magical Helford River just a short distance away.

Trethewey Farm has undergone a series of major upgrades and renovation within our vendor’s ownership and now offers very comfortable living in this peaceful setting. The property sits proudly overlooking its lovely gardens and many specimen trees to the front and across to the pretty lake below. Broad lawns extend through a vegetable garden to an abundant fruit orchard beyond. To one side is an attractive barn with its own area of land set to the rear and woodlands to the side. The barn benefits from planning permission for a two-bedroom dwelling with approved architects’ drawings, full building specification and services including provision for ground-source heating. This could, once converted, offer itself as additional accommodation either for a dependant relative or potentially as an eco-holiday rental property.

The main farmhouse provides very attractive accommodation throughout with a lovely kitchen and conservatory at its heart and taking centre stage. This creates a very social space and forms a gracious link out to the gardens beyond for entertaining. The sitting room and dining room both feature traditional inglenook fireplaces and have great charm. There is a very peaceful study and the home cinema room is an impressive additional feature. Upstairs there is a fine master suite with four further bedrooms and a family bathroom. In addition, the link to the rear leads into an area with huge potential, possibly to convert to an AirBnB or (as currently set out) a home office and a great space for either a gym or to use as a store. There is also a plant room that is ideal for drying and storage.

Trethewey Farmhouse also benefits from a brand-new ground-source heating system which will provide generous RHI payments to the new owners for 7 years to come, making it very economical and green to run.


Trethewey Farm is set close to the hamlet of Newtown St Martin on the Lizard Peninsula - very much Cornwall’s forgotten Eden - with some of the most dramatic coastlines found in the county and the stunning Helford River made famous by Daphne Du Maurier just 3 miles away at Helford Village. Nearby facilities are available at St Keverne, with shops, two pubs, restaurant and church, and Coverack with its working/recreation granite harbour, beach and restaurants. Close at hand is Helston, which is served by three supermarkets and has a number of restaurants and bars.

With its unique flora & fauna, history & geology, the Lizard Peninsula also boasts the Goonhilly Nature Reserve & Earth Station and numerous magical, sandy beaches such as Kynance Cove, the most photographed beach in the UK. Activities such as sailing, diving and golf are available for the enthusiast. There is also an abundance of fine food to enjoy throughout the area with local fish, especially crab & lobster, being regular features.
