    • “We found this holiday rental to be the best we have ever stayed in, owner very welcoming on our arrival after long journey, and everything possible provided. Warm and cosy and very clean. Beds very comfy, bathroom shower so efficient we are going to buy similar model. Bed linen provided (good quality duvets!) only took our own towels. Kitchen modern and all equipment easy to use and there were instructions for all equipment within the bungalow. The dog enjoyed herself in the well contained garden, we had no qualms about her being out there on her own. There was a Spar shop just up the road but supermarkets in and around Truro and lovely beaches & gardens to visit within a few miles. We joined the N.Trust and visited all the gardens we could and dogs were welcome in ghe majority of the gardens, and after 1 October allowed on beaches. We would definitely rebook in this area of Cornwall, in the same property if possible!”

    • “Arriving after a long tiring journey we were met by the extremely pleasant and helpful owner who made us feel very welcome. The bungalow was spotlessly clean and comfortable and the pet friendly garden perfect for our two dogs. It was very central for exploring Cornwall and the only disappointment we had was that we only booked one week, next time it will definitely be two.”

About the location


Truro 2 miles.

The peaceful village of Playing Place quietly rests close to the River Fal, just 2 miles from Truro. Perfectly situated for exploring the creeks and hidden reaches that wind their way inland from nearby Falmouth, the whole area provides a haven for boating and sailing enthusiasts. The village has its own shop and post office, whilst riverside pubs and restaurants are a feature of the area, as well as walks along the shoreline, amazing wildlife and lush wooded valleys just waiting to be explored. Nearby Truro and Falmouth offer great shops and amenities, whilst Trelissick Gardens are within easy reach and well worth a visit. Further afield lie the delights of Helford River with its hidden coves, famous gardens and seal sanctuary, whilst a hop across the river on the ferry brings you to the timeless beauty of St. Mawes and the Roseland. A stunning location for all the family.
