The property

Falmouth 5 miles.

A spacious and historic house located in a rural location on the main road to Falmouth.

Copper House was built in 1780 as an administration centre for the Gwennap Copper Mines, where it was said that the world copper price was set every morning.

Perfectly located for touring all of Cornwall, in particular the stunning south coast, this Grade II listed Georgian period house is ideal for large families or special occasions as it can sleep seventeen in total.

The house also features a huge iron-clad Strongroom which can be viewed by request with the owner.

You will sense the character of this splendid property the moment you arrive, with ornate fireplaces, high ceilings and wood-panelled walls.

There are six large reception rooms including a drawing room with a full-size antique snooker table, and a music room with a grand piano, a marble fireplace and antique Chesterfield sofas, reminding you of the grandeur of bygone days.

The well-equipped 40 foot long kitchen offers a huge range of cooking equipment, so you can create sumptuous meals to celebrate your special holiday.

A splendid dining room has a table to seat fourteen, however you can bring an additional table from the drawing room so that all of your party can sit and enjoy a celebratory meal together.

Next to the dining room is a large bar/games room with a mahogany bar counter along with a separate sitting room with a desk and computer.

On the first floor are five bedrooms, with a sixth bedroom on the ground floor, four of which boast an en-suite.

Flexibility in the sleeping arrangements will suit all guests, from an elegant four poster bed to large family rooms.

Copper House is set in lovely mature gardens with a good-sized patio with a gas barbecue and furniture to enjoy alfresco dining whilst the kids enjoy the expansive grounds.

With the south coast close by and the north coast within easy reach, there are some wonderful places for good days out.

The maritime town of Falmouth and the city of Truro are within driving distance and are both well worth a visit.

The Copper House is ideally located for experiencing all that Cornwall has to offer with spacious, comfortable accommodation all year round.
