Truro Holiday Cottages
For a city stay with coast and countryside right on your doorstep, try a Truro cottage.
Pick up leaflets and tips at the tourist office and perhaps join a guided tour. Truro features a wealth of striking Georgian architecture, including the Crown Courts, Assembly Rooms, Walsingham Place and Lemon Street. The city's real gem, however, is its splendid neo-gothic cathedral, with ornate stained glass and soaring spires.
A shopper's delight, high street names and exclusive boutiques sit beside gift shops, galleries and bustling markets - try Pydar Mews, Victoria Square and Little Castle Street. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, fill up your Truro cottage's larder at Lemon Quay farmers' market, showcasing delicious Cornish goodies. Or dine out in one of the many pavement cafs, stylish restaurants and trendy bars.
Days out from your Truro cottage
Hop aboard the King Harry Ferry and explore the stunning Roseland Peninsula, calling in at the medieval village of St. Mawes or small settlement of Feock. Or sail across to Trelissick Gardens at the head of the Fal Estuary, promising colourful, exotic displays and incredible views.
Evening entertainment could be a BBQ and Charades at your Truro cottage. A night at the bowling alley or multi-screen cinema. A riverside concert in Victoria Gardens or a stage or other performance at the Hall for Cornwall, the area's biggest theatre.
What else? A golf course, children's recreational area, Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, the Royal Cornwall Museum and events like the Food & Drink Festival and City of Lights Parade. A whole host of things to see and do on a Truro cottage holiday!
