Cornwall’s highest point could be yours for £2.8m

September 14th, 2016

Are you in the market for a unique slice of Cornwall? If so, you might be interested to know that one of the most iconic and rugged spots in the South West of Britain could be yours, as it’s been confirmed that it is now up for sale.

Brown Willy, the iconic tor located in Bodmin, scaling 420 metres (1,378 feet) above sea level is officially the highest point in Cornwall. Brown Willy lies within a 1,225-acre plot, which also features a granite farmhouse as part of the sale, and is currently on the market with a guide price of £2.8m.

The name of the tor originates from the Cornish Bronn Wennili, meaning “hill of swallows”. It has two manmade cairns on the summit and will provide its new owner with a range of far reaching views across much of Cornwall that will surely amaze, at any time!

The estate agent, Savills, makes much of the romantic nature of the spot, stating: “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.”

If you’re not quite up to making the move to Brown Willy just yet and would prefer to visit for family breaks in Cornwall, why not take a look at what The Valley Resort can offer you?
