About the property

Striking four-bedroom family home between Truro and Falmouth, Cornwall, England. Village views from secluded garden.

Sleeping seven comfortably (eight at a push), this four-bedroom Victorian family home in a quaint Cornish village (shop with daily pasties, pub with renowned food, post office, mini-spa) reveals a sun trap terrace for alfresco dining (BBQ) commanding a panorama over quilted fields. An acre of private gardens on all four sides of the house adds to a deep sense of rural peace, yet you're just minutes away from Southwest Cornwall’s sea of activities and access to beaches on both coasts. Packed with original features (window seats, fireplaces, stripped original floorboards), you will enter through the back door to a large well equipped country kitchen-diner with space for entertaining eight (plus iPod dock, radio etc). There’s a large drawing room with a more formal dining space and an additional cosy living room (TV/DVD, WiFi, fire); a curved Victorian staircase with central chandelier leads to four upstairs bedrooms (two doubles, one twin and a single/small double), one bathroom with roll-top bath/claw feet (and stellar view) and a walk-in shower room with waterfall shower and a separate loo.

There's an established guide of things to do in the area, a sea of books and guides, a library of DVDs and a cupboard full of games.

If little ones are in tow, there's a travel cot, high chair, dressing up box, plastic cutlery, games and even two buggies so you don't have to travel with them. Not travelling with kids? None of these items are visible.

Parking for circa 5 cars.

10 minutes from the Cathedral City of Truro with its many restaurants, theatre and cinema and 10 minutes from Falmouth with its many beaches, castle, and habour.

With the Seal Sancturary, Eden, St Ives Tate, numerous National Trusts such as Trellisick less than 10 minutes away, theme parks and farms, you will be spoilt for things to do and places to visit.

Bissoe Bike hire is less than 5 minutes away with the stunning bike trail. Riding, windsurfing, coasteering and surfing are also moments from the house.

About Tamsin

This property has been in my family for nearly 100 years and is a much loved, very special home with many memories to a large family. Recently, the house has been lovingly refurbished and I very much hope guests enjoy their time there as much as we have growing up, with picnics on the beach and hide-and-seek in the garden.

Tamsin purchased this house in 1889

wonderful holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house in a lovely location. There were 3 generations. Plenty of space for the children to let off steam and the adults to have a peaceful moment. Beautiful views from the first floor. A good base to visit local beaches and activities and then return to a peaceful location so that little ones can go to bed early without fear of being disturbed. We loved it.
