About Keith Busby

We moved to Cornwall in 2002 seeking a better work-life balance and we have certainly found it. We still enjoy everything Cornwall has to offer and make sure we walk every day on the beautiful cliff paths and beaches with our dog, Ruan.

Keith Busby purchased this house in 2002

Why Keith Busby chose Truro & Falmouth area

We moved from a stone cottage on the Pennines with great views over the Yorkshire moors, near Hebden Bridge. We felt immediately at home in St Agnes and chanced upon a house and annexe with equally stunning views along the coast. A radical rebuild created a light filled house, making the most of the panorama.

What makes this house unique

In 2012 we renovated the Little Hive to the same high standard as the main house, while retaining its cottage atmosphere. The living rooms, bedroom and kitchen all enjoy the panoramic views along the coast, as does the patio where guests can eat or relax overlooking the garden. The Little Hive is light during the day, and cosy with a log fire in the evening. The furnishings and original art works have delighted our guests so far. We hope that you will enjoy living here for a week or two as much as we do all year round.

This property of one if the highest standards that could be found. Everything is at had and so so clean. Comfortable bed and beautiful scenery from the bedroom window. What a delight to behold and we were fortunate to find it. Thanks to Keith and Louse are time spent there was great. Our grandaughteer visited us and as soon as she entered Little Hive she exclaimed "WOW! - it is far better than our place". An acculade in itself.
