Gadles is a Cornish name which contains the elements ‘cad’ and ‘lys’ which translate into ‘battle’ and court’ and can be interpreted as indicating a high status defended place such as a motte and bailey or hillfort.
The newly converted Pascoes cottage is marked on maps of the farm dating back to 1880, as does the west wing of the cowshed which is now Foxglove cottage.
