Prince Charles has put a pocket of unspoilt Cornish countryside up for sale. The spot of land, which makes up part of his Duchy of Cornwall estate,  will go up for auction on 18 September.

The 45-acre plot, complete with coastal views, an engine house and waterfall, will have a guide price of £40,000 to £50,000. It is located in the stunning Trebarwith Valley in north Cornwall, near Tintagel.

The engine house is a listed building and was used to haul slate and pump water until 1890. It is the only preserved engine house remaining in north Cornwall.

The plot is being sold by Clive Emson auctioneers. Katie Semmens, a senior auction valuer in the West Country office, said: “This is a glorious spot for not a lot of money. We’ve had calls from some very interested parties. Plots with a real royal wow factor don’t come up every day. This could make a lovely home for the right person.”
