About the property

Four-bedroom house in Perranwell Station, nr. 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 renowed 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 equiped 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 seperate 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 a Quinny buggy so you don't have to travel with one. But if little one's aren't all these things aren't 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.

Special interest holidays:

From walking, surfing, coasteering, sailing, fishing, and riding to exploring gardens and houses, learning upholstery or painting there is something for everyone close to Perranwell.


The choice of beaches is endless. Nearest at just 3 miles is Loe with its watersports centre and beachside café. Whether you wish to hire a kayak, learn to sail or simply enjoy the vista, this ‘locals’ secret’ beach is a gorgeous spot.

Falmouth’s three beaches are perfect for white sand and rock pooling (5 miles). Cockling fans will prefer Helford Passage (9 miles), whereas surfers may choose to head to rugged North Coast treasures such as St Agnes (9 miles) & Perranporth (20 miles).


Perranwell has it’s own train station, and connects to the mainline services at Truro, which has a direct link to London (approx 4 hours’ journey time). Nearest airport is Newquay (24 miles).

A car is recommended and Perranwell is a short turn-off from the A39.


Truro (5 miles). Falmouth (5 miles). Newquay (24 miles).

Further Details:

Perranwell is a quaint Cornish village located halfway between Truro and Falmouth (5 miles to each). Find a well equipped Post Office/store, with fresh pasties delivered each morning; a delightful pub with some of the best pub grub around; and a lovely village spa for beauty treatments. Country walks aplenty begin minutes away. For cycling enthusiasts, the coast-to-coast cycle path goes through the village (there is a cycle hire shop at Bissoe very close by) and many nearby attractions are within easy reach (Eden Project, St Ives, Lands End). Classic car enthusiasts can even hire a Morgan from Perranwell garage and explore Cornwall in vintage style.

Cornwall’s capital, Truro, is only 10 minutes’ drive (5 miles) with its imposing Cathedral, shops, bars, restaurants and cinema. There is also a branch line train which stops in the village should you wish to leave the car at home.

The port of Falmouth (5 miles), again with train connections, is home to the Maritime museum, Pendennis Castle, fishing trips, three beautiful beaches and Rick Stein’s Fish restaurant.

Mylor Harbour for sailing is less than 10 mins’ drive away (4 miles). The renowned Pandora Inn with its Gold Olympic post box in honour of local boy Ben Ainslie and thatched roof is an excellent spot for a glass of Pinot and a pint of prawns. With crabbing off the pontoon and stunning riverside views this heavenly spot is around an eight-minute drive.

Introduce little ones to furry friends at the National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, take a boat trip across to the Roseland Peninsular on the King Harry Ferry, soak up some artistic charm in St Ives with a trip to the Tate and Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden, or watch a play at the open-air Minack Theatre carved into the granite cliff overlooking the spectacular panorama of Porthcurno Bay.
