This delightful apartment occupies part of a magnificent listed work house that is steeped in history and character. Refurbished to a high standard to provide a comfortable and spacious retreat for those wanting a central location to enjoy the sights of Cornwall.

Situated on top of a hill on the edge of the city where it backs on to fields and country lanes that lead to the pretty riverside villages of Malpas and St Clements. From Malpas you can take the ferry down the beautiful river Fal, past Tregothnan Estate and Trelissick to St Mawes and Falmouth. The popular north and south coast beaches are only 30 minutes away, or stay closer to home and visit our nearest beach, at Feock, where you can sail or relax in the beach cafe. In the evenings enjoy a 10 minute walk to the city centre with a theatre, cinema and plenty of recommended restaurants to try.

A beautiful apartment. Really nicely furnished in a contemporary but homely way. Could not ask for more equipment. It was very nice not to have a long list of dos and donts and also on arrival not to be told that I want the apartment left in immaculate condition when you leave.

Well equipped cottage. Washing machine,dishwasher and tumbledryer all very efficient and easy to use. Parking was a little tight. Very good shower / wet room. The only downside was being up a quite steep hill to the property however there is a local bus no 484 that runs from BHS to Trelander bus stop across the road from the property at halfpast evRead moreery hour until 1730 Monday to Saturday. It is free to concession card holders and a cost of 1.60 otherwise. Hide

Superb location for visiting Cornwall, its in the middle and therefore close to everything. Truro had lots of nice restaurants if you wanted to eat out which we did on most nights. The apartment itself is superb with plenty of room and a lovely light and airy bedroom. It had everything you could need and was very clean, we stayed for 2 weeks and woRead moreuld not hesitate to book again when we next visit Cornwall. Having the owner next door is great and she was a lovely Lady. Hide

Cosy and in a quiet location off the main roads. Bit of a hike up the hill from the city centre so not ideal for those with mobility problems.

The apartment was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Perfect for getting into the centre of Truro and in a good location for driving to Falmouth, the Lizard, Porthleven and the Eden Project. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Altogether a relaxing and enjoyable week.

We booked this lovely little cottage last minute for New Years.. We were so happy with what we got its just enough room for 2 people and a beautiful little getaway.. It's just out of Truro centre which we loved as we didn't want to be in the middle of it all. The family were so friendly and made us feel so welcome and gave us some advice on beachesRead more to visit which we did! We would recommend highly :) thank you so much for having us! Hide
