'The Farmhouse' occupies a beautiful, peaceful setting, having been the original farmhouse for 'Higher Goneva Farm', on the rural outskirts of the village of Gwinear. Well away from passing traffic, off a picturesque tree-lined lane, 'The Farmhouse' enjoys an extremely sunny and sheltered aspect, with the front west-facing elevation enjoying picturesque views over its own grounds and neighbouring farmland to Trencrom Hill, on the outskirts of St Ives, in the distance.


Known to exist prior to 1700 and with parts dating back to circa 1600, The Farmhouse is a traditional cross-passage house of fine granite elevations under a picturesque roof of thatch and Cornish slate. Many authentic features include a Listed entrance door, plank and muntin panelling, open fireplaces, small pane sash windows and beamed ceilings etc, with all main rooms overlooking and opening onto a beautiful courtyard garden with gate onto extensive formal lawned gardens beyond. The accommodation comprises three charming reception rooms, three bedrooms including a master with en-suite, luxurious family bathroom and a ground floor annexe with permission for further extension.

It is recommended you follow the route towards Penzance on the A30:-

1: Take the Camborne (West) exit, turn left at the top of the exit slip road and then right at the roundabout, signposted to Connor Downs.

2: As you enter the village of Connor Downs turn left at the crossroads, signposted to Carnhell Green. Continue on this road, passing Trevaskis Farm Shop then Rosewarne Manor on the right, over the level crossing, and on into the village.

3: At the junction turn right and continue, passing the pub on the left, for exactly half a mile. You will see a double bend sign on the left, and directly ahead, on the very sharp left-hand bend, a double-fronted stone cottage with French windows (and a red post box recessed into the left side), and a tall black and white Victorian house with a palm tree in the garden to its left. Turn right immediately in front of these cottages onto an unmade lane, (this is Rosewarne Road). The wooden entrance gate to The Farmhouse' is the first on the left about 100 yards further on. (NB: If you pass a large white house with a central arched window on the left which is immediately after the sharp left-hand bend or the big sign on the left for Parbola , you have gone too far and will need to turn around and go back).
