An entire Cornish village complete with swimming pool, tennis courts and even its own pub is up for sale.

Trefanny Hill near Pelynt lay abandoned for decades after all its men perished in the First World War.

It was turned into holiday cottages in the 1960s by a couple from Essex.

Now the fifteen cottages and other amenities are back on the market with an asking price in the region of two million pounds.

Owner Jon Slaughter explains the appeal for potential buyers.

He said: "It's not just the prettiness of the cottages, it's the location. You know, we're sheltered here by high hills all around, south facing, looking over beautiful countryside. It's an area of outstanding natural beauty, but also the uniqueness of being able to own your own hamlet."

Jon added he believed settlement in Trefanny Hill, formerly known simply as Hille, dated back a thousand years.

"I was quite delighted when I found what turned out to be a holy water vestibule. I had an archaeologist come and look at it and he said, 'you've found an eleventh century holy water vestibule', which is what you take the water and cross yourself with. So obviously, there was some sort of religious something here before that.
