Virtual Tour




The location of Old Lanwarnick is surely its greatest asset, occupying a private position in a valley with far reaching unobstructed elevated country views, with a South facing aspect flooding the properties and gardens with light. The property is approximately 6 miles from Looe, which is a very pretty town dissected by the Looe River and which has meandering streets leading to a beach. Access to the South Coast, the Moors and day trip destinations, such as Looe / Polperro and Fowey are nearby, making this part of Cornwall very popular with visitors.

Guests love the peace and tranquility of Old Lanwarnick, the barns / cottages sit centrally within the land and give a great sense of space. Undoubtedly, a very special location indeed.


The Old Farmhouse is the original property, dating to the mid 18th Century (Historic England), with the Barns being converted in c. 2008 and Over The Moon built in 2014. The properties sit centrally with Over The Moon having a slightly more elevated position, affording it a beautiful outlook.

The properties, can either provide a single full time residence with 6 letting units (including The Old Farmhouse), or given the Farmhouse has full residential consent could provide two houses for extended family and 5 letting units.

There is of course the land which could scope to expand the leisure business with the addition of further units, subject to Planning Permission, which our clients have not explored. Albeit, given the relatively low volume of properties there is ample space for the clients, who have access to Guest facilities, including a Pamper Room for pre-booked treatments, a very well equipped Gym and luxurious Hot Tub, with country views.


We understand the cottages have been let since 2008 when they were converted, and have been in our client’s tenure since 2014, who are now selling to pursue other projects away from this sector. The business operates at the higher / luxury end of the furnished holiday let market and has received many industry / organisation awards and accolades over the years, with 5 Star Ratings from the AA and Visit England.

During our client’s tenure they have added considerably to the property, including adding the Pavillion, Cinema Room and both the Victorian and Rose Gardens.

The business trades all year and is run by our clients with some property and garden maintenance assistance. The business has a turnover of c. £140,000 (net), providing a lifestyle income with scope to increase.

Further information regarding the Letting units (Including The Old Farmhouse) can be seen via our client’s website, where interested parties can also view virtual tours of the properties.
