Ponstreath Farm is situated in a rural location, yet only a short distance from the A394 linking Penryn and Helston. The former market town of Helston lies about 6 miles distant and has a good range of services and amenities, supermarkets, schools, health and leisure facilities etc. and is home to RNAS Culdrose naval base. The town is renowned for the annual Flora Day Furry Dance and is the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, itself an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with spectacular stretches of dramatic clifftop scenery and coastal walks.

The harbour town of Falmouth is less than 7 miles away and has a further range of retail and services as well as providing access to the superb sailing waters of the River Fal and Carrick Roads. The Combined University of Cornwall Campus at Tremough, Penryn lies approx. 5 miles distant.

The nearby village of Rame has a Post Office and general stores, and there is a public house at Halfway House. The creekside village of Gweek is about 4 miles distant situated at the head of the Helford River, famed for its quaint wooded creeks and inlets. The larger village of Constantine is about 2 miles distant with general stores and off licence, primary school, doctor’s surgery, pub and church.


It is believed that this is the first time that Ponstreath Farm has come to the open market and it is has been in our clients’ tenure since 1975, with the family having rented the farm before that.

The property comprises a traditional Cornish farmhouse under a slate roof with four bedrooms, two reception rooms and a family bathroom, together with a detached former stone barn providing self-contained ancillary accommodation.

The property is complimented by a range of workshops and stores together with a large agricultural building fronting a concrete yard providing good secure storage for personal use or commercial uses, subject to planning consents etc.
