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

Great base for exploring Cornwall
Lovely period property in extensive gardens. Lots of extras provided which was a nice touch. Not close to beach which was only down side (but good beaches within reasonable drive circa 20 mins).
Station is walkable so car not essential.
Royal oak pub in village is a gem.
Overall, would recommend highly.
Lovely old house full of interesting features. T
The location is secluded but minutes from the village and within easy reach of many other interesting places.
peacefull and relaxing
arrived at the property went in and everything was as good as expected nothing was hidden the house the gardens views and surrounding areas it was all true. Lovely old period property well maintained and comfortable the lady who rents this house should never expect any complaints from anyone
Peaceful & very charming
So quiet, views are outstanding. Great base to explore north/south Cornwall.
Loved the two living rooms, as we were a group of grandparents, parents & older children was great to space out in evenings.
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).
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.
