Property Brochure PDF Location Map


The former Brighton Cross Garden Centre is situated on the A3058 in the small hamlet of Brighton Cross, which is close to the A30 and within the triangle between Truro, Newquay and St Austell and therefore has an extremely wide catchment area. Brighton Cross has a few residential properties and commercial enterprises.

It is considered the location is ideal for a variety of uses given its proximity to several principal towns in Cornwall and of course the A30 trunk road. We are advised the site has both A1 Retail and A3 Catering Consent.

The Land

We are advised the land extends to approximately 6.8 acres (2.77 Ha), is broadly of triangular shape and is gently sloping from the lower to upper parts. On the lower part of the land is a part built building, with block work to first floor level. In the middle part of the land is a chalet, which is now uninhabited, however, we understand has a Certificate of Lawful Use in respect of its continued use as a dwelling. The predominance of the land is to the north of the chalet and is accessed via a track, which affords far reaching country views.


Our clients have instructed a firm of Architects to drop a proposed development on the site including a farm shop, restaurant and work shops, along with a substantial owner/managers residence, plans copies of which are available upon inspection.

We are advised by our clients that while discussions have taken place with the Planning Authority a formal application has not been submitted.

Our clients will consider conditional or unconditional expressions of interest/offers.

The Chalet

We are in receipt of a Certificate of Lawfulness for Existing Use or Development (Application number: C2/10/00716) in respect of the continued use of the chalet as a dwelling. Copy available upon request.
