Goonhilly downs is perhaps most famously known for its steep history in telecommunications, which have evolved into Europe's communications crossroads where satellites meet global subsea cables and fibre, but what many do not know is that the site has a special prehistoric history and is rooted in Neolithic barrows and monuments including a 3.2 metre standing stone.

Approximately 50% of this coveted site sits on sssi land (a Site of Special Scientific Interest). Natural England oversees these sites right across the breadth of the country and they are known for their rare flora, fauna and ecologically scientific species of interest. A perfect equilibrium of conservation for environmental cause, mixed with your own land complete with a block-built structure, which has rare planning permission for a one-bedroom dwelling. Suitable for science enthusiasts, walking ramblers, environmental champions, or those in search of peace and seclusion. The Lizard Peninsula is a very special place in this beautiful county. Known for being the most southerly mainland point of the United Kingdom, it boasts many beauty spots, natural designations, and some famous ice cream parlours as well as rich farming pastures!

The site also benefits from a lake! Reminiscent of its quarry past life. There have been many fish introduced into the lake and for those fishing enthusiasts this is an additional rare treat indeed and something to relish in such a beautiful and quiet secluded spot.

The lake is approximately 3 acres on the far side it has a cliff edge and on the near side, it has a bankrolling into it. Perfect in our opinion for fishing and (subject to planning) a potential business site for nature-loving anglers. The site has been registered for aquatic animal holding with cefas and the current vendor has invested in stocking the lake with Common carp, Golden Rudd, Tench, Perch, Roach, Bream, Eels and Rainbow Trout

Given its significant scientific interest, the site attracts many wild animals including heron and kingfisher dragonfly buzzards and many other animals throughout the year.

Our vendor currently resides in the mobile home located next to the lake the planning permission has been granted with the following planning number PA21/06609 to remove the mobile home and convert a one-bedroom dwelling from the existing 140-meter square shed. The shed is an existing block built with double glazing and has huge potential for somebody to get involved at this stage in the development and to make amendments to the planning for something more to their tastes. We think this is a brilliant opportunity for someone to get involved at this stage and with the further potential of developing either their own sanctuary or a business opportunity in some way shape or form, which is obviously subject to all relevant permissions being obtained.

Please take a look at the Cornwall Council planning portal with the above reference to study the existing planning permissions and conditions. If you are looking to make your own oasis from these humble beginnings, then get in contact to register your interest.
