Brown Willy, Cornwall’s highest point and one of the county’s iconic landmarks, could soon have a new owner.
Brown Willy Tor is a rocky outcrop sitting 420 metres above sea level. The name comes from ‘Bronn Wennili’ which is the Cornish for ‘hill of swallows’.
It is located within a 1,225 plot of land on Bodmin Moor, all of which was recently put on the market.
Along with Brown Willy, the plot boasts a five-bedroom farmhouse called Fernacre, shooting rights for the area’s snipe, woodcock and deer, and 200 acres of ‘improved pasture’.
If that isn’t enough, it has its own water source and a tax-funded dowry of up to £45,000 a year under the Environmental Stewardship Scheme.
And the price of having Cornwall’s most famous Tor in your back yard? A cool £2.8 million.
The views from the top of the Tor are remarkable, and countryside lovers will be pleased to know that public rights of way to the Tor will not be affected.
If you are planning a trip, it’s a great opportunity to pop into Jamaica Inn, made famous by Daphne du Maurier’s classic novel of the same name.
