Penrose is a tiny rural hamlet comprising historic cottages centred on a village green. In recent times the hamlet has grown with newer homes, yet it remains a sleepy, ‘out of the way’ countryside community. It is by no means isolated for St Eval is 2 miles away where local amenities include a Post Office, convenience store, primary school and parish church. Newquay Airport is 10 miles distant and the beautiful family safe surfing beach of Porthcothan Bay just 2½ miles away. The hamlet is located 5 miles south of the ancient port of Padstow, renowned now for its safe harbour, quaint shops and respected eateries plus its schooling and health facilities. 11 miles to the south, beyond St Columb Major is the A30, Cornwall’s main arterial route.
It is exceedingly rare to find a building plot with land, let alone in such a scenic and highly sought after north Cornwall location. An opportunity not to be missed! This property comprises a 3.9 acre site on the very fringe of the hamlet. It is accessed directly from the Council road into an area where Conditional Outline Planning permission was granted for one dwelling on 01/04/2021 under Application No. PA21/01529. Beyond the building plot, with a warm southerly aspect, the agricultural field drops down into the sheltered valley where a stream runs along the outside of the southern most boundary and through the bottom south-west corner of the field. Conditional Planning Consent was also granted on 21/04/2022 for a proposed farm building for storage purposes under Application No. PA21/12310.
