Vickery Holman have been instructed to market Lamorna Cove, one of the most well-known and unspoilt bays in Cornwall. One of the last bays remaining in private hands, it has just come back onto the market after being in the same ownership for 26 years. Lamorna Cove is a magical place, totally unspoilt and romantically picturesque. Located at the end of a heavily wooded valley, it feels remote but is actually only 5 miles from Penzance. As the interest in relocating to the South West to live and work shows little sign of abating, this would offer an unique opportunity for the next owner to make a lifestyle change or a commercial investment.
Vickery Holman are the Westcountry’s leading property consultancy and are delighted to be marketing Lamorna Cove. Included in the sale price of £1.45M are the trademark for Lamorna Cove, the cove itself, a restaurant and gift shop, 2 pay and display carparks, kayak and boat storage facilities, moorings, slipway and just under 15 acres of land. These commercial interests have been established since 1952 and the cove is well known as a beautiful and secluded beach and bay.
Lamorna Cove is probably best known for its post-Impressionist artists who used to stay in the area at the turn of the twentieth century, making it one of the most painted parts of the UK coastline. Lamorna became an outpost of the artist school in Newlyn who loved the natural beauty and the ever-changing light over the water. Lamorna Cove continues to attract creative people including the late writer David Cornwell (better known by his pen name John Le Carre) and still inspires artists to this day. The cove lies within an Area of Outstanding Beauty and the South West Coast Path goes along the cove.
‘This is an outstanding opportunity for a family or business person to build on the work of the current owners, and to enjoy what is arguably one of the best views in Cornwall.’ Said Mike Easton, Head of hotels and Hospitality for Vickery Holman property consultants. ‘This is so rare an opportunity that it’s hard to value the property. We don’t expect that Lamorna Cove will be on the market for long!’
