This country home on the border of Devon and Cornwall is a wildlife haven - and could be the perfect place to try out your own ‘Good Life’.

Carpenter’s Tinney, in Holsworthy, has more than 11 acres of land as well as its own fishing rights on the River Tamar.

The land is made up of gardens and paddocks, as well as its own pond, and wildlife spotted on the premises includes deer, hares, rabbits, otters in the river and a variety of birds.

The farmhouse dates back to the 17th century and has plenty of period features, such as an inglenook fireplace with a clome oven, slate flagstone flooring and exposed timbers.

On the ground floor of the farmhouse is a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom, an office/dining room, a bedroom, a utility room and a pantry.

Upstairs, there are three further bedrooms and a shower room.

In addition to the main farmhouse, the purchase includes three cottages - Ash Cottage, Beech Cottage and Oak Cottage.

Ash Cottage is a one-bedroom barn conversion, Beech Cottage is a converted former piggery with stone walls and two bedrooms, and Oak Cottage is an idyllic rose-covered cottage with three bedrooms and vaulted ceilings.

The cottages are being used by the current owners as holiday lets, with hot tubs and a swimming pool.

As well as the gardens and paddocks, the land includes a lambing barn and other outbuildings.

The property also benefits from there being no light pollution in the area, so there is clear stargazing from the courtyard.

Carpenter’s Tinney is being marketed by Webbers Property Services and is listed with a guide price of £1,000,000.

Lin Quirk of Webbers commented: “This four-bedroom detached country home with three holiday barns is a real gem!

“The property is an established small holding,  with approximately 11.57 acres of well stocked mature gardens and land.

“The property also benefits from fishing rights along the River Tamar and is a haven for wildlife which offers a superb lifestyle opportunity.”
