Nestled in the heart of the Lizard area, this twelve-acre site offers not just a place to live but an angler’s dream, with a three-acre lake brimming with species like Common Carp, Golden Rudd, Tench, Perch, Roach, Bream, Eels, and even Rainbow Trout. It’s a splendid setup for both seasoned and novice anglers looking to cast their lines directly from their own doorstep.

The site includes about four acres of sculpted brownfield land, a 5 acre site of special scientific interest and a 3 acre stocked fishing lake.

A robust, newly reconstructed 1506 sq. ft. block-built shed stands ready on the site, featuring double glazing and ample living space, subject to the allowed planning guidelines.

The ground floor plans include a modern kitchen/diner, utility room, family bathroom, and a games room—perfect for family activities. The first floor is envisioned to house a lounge and an additional bedroom, making the most of the tranquil views.

The property’s location is not just about fishing; it’s also within a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), promising untouched natural beauty and a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Birdwatchers and naturalists will find the surrounding area a treasure trove of flora and fauna, enhancing the allure of this idyllic retreat.

For those intrigued by local lore and nature, the nearby Goonhilly Downs nature reserve offers walking paths, horse riding trails, and is steeped in local myths and historic ruins, perfect for those leisurely days when not by the lake.

Convenience isn’t compromised as the property is just a short drive from local amenities in nearby villages such as Mawgan—with its shop, Post Office, and pub—and is well-connected to larger towns like Helston, providing all necessary services including schools, shops, and leisure facilities.

All planning documents and permissions related to this site can be reviewed on the Cornwall Council planning portal with the reference number PA21/06609.

This is a rare chance to create not just a home, but a lifestyle where your passion for coarse fishing and nature can bloom right on your doorstep. Don’t miss out on making this tranquil haven your own personal fishing escape!
