You could own a piece for Cornwall for just £2.8m!
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
The peak is part of a plot of land called Fernacre which covers 1,225 acres and there are shooting rights for the area's game and a five-bedroom farmhouse. The estate agents handling the sale listed Fernacre at £2.8m.
The description of the land reads: "Fernacre is set amidst the rugged tors of the Bodmin Moors famed for their striking landscape of rolling hills and granite outcrops. The rare and diverse beauty of the area has, through the ages, turned the heads and filled the eyes and minds of warriors, poets, artists, and thinkers."
The successful buyer will own the tor and exclusive to the whole farm, though the public will still have access to Brown Willy Tor under the Countryside Rights of Way Act.
The tor reaches a height of 420 metres (1,378 feet) above sea level and is the highest point in the whole of Cornwall. From the Cornish Bronn Wennili meaning 'hill of swallows,' it has two man-made cairns on the summit and provides far reaching stunning views of Cornwall.
It is not just the stunning scenery which makes the area around Brown Willy special, as there are remnants of old medieval settlements still visible. The area is also a haven for wildlife, with woodland and rugged moorland the home to a variety of deer and birds.
When staying at our boutique hotel in Golant, why not take a trip up to Bodmin Moor and see for yourself the breath-taking views from the peaks and tors that look like some of the scenes from Poldark?
