Clowance Wood Nurseries is situated in the Parish of Crowan in a delightful rural location in rolling countryside and close to the historic Clowance Estate.

There are excellent local facilities in the villages of Leedstown and Praze and the property is well situated for easy access to both the north and south coasts. The village of Praze has a doctors' surgery, local store/Post Office, hairdressers, fish and chip/pizza shop, bakery, public house, primary school and nursing home. There is good access to the A30 to the north and the A394 to the south.

The property is well located for the main conurbations of Camborne and Redruth and a short distance from the ancient market town of Helston. The University Campus at Tremough, Penryn, and the harbour town of Falmouth are both within easy commuting distance. Penzance with its ferry service to the Isles of Scilly is 11 miles away. The coastal resort of Hayle with its famous 3 miles of golden sands is just under 6 miles away and Praa Sands on the south coast, popular with families and surfers alike, is approximately 7½ miles distant.

The City of Truro with its excellent well renowned shopping centre, commercial, health, education and leisure facilities is 20 miles distant.


The deceptively spacious five bedroom farmhouse is conveniently situated to the side of the main entrance and has well-established well-stocked gardens extending to just over 1/3 of an acre. The farmhouse was constructed in 1969 and offers comfortable spacious family accommodation in good decorative order with oil fired central heating, double glazing and rooms of good size. The property requires a detailed interior viewing to fully appreciate all that it has to offer.

The farmhouse is subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition but is not tied to the land and nursery.


The extensive nursery area, with glasshouses and ancillary/general purpose buildings, extends to just under 5 acres.

The remaining productive land is level with clearly defined Cornish hedge boundaries and extends to approximately 8 acres. The land is contained within three enclosures and is ideal for further development or expansion of the business or for livestock/equestrian use or hobby farming etc.

The nursery has been run and owned by four generations of the same family and is reluctantly for sale for genuine retirement reasons.
