    “There was a cream tea waiting for ...”

    There was a cream tea waiting for us when we arrived which was a nice touch. The owner had also left a box of cornish goodies and information leaflets which gave us a good start to the looking at what activities we wanted to complete.

The property

This traditional thatched, Grade II listed terraced cottage is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Cusgarne, three miles from the villages of Carnon Downs and Perranwell Station, within reach of both the city of Truro and the maritime town of Falmouth.

Boasting character features, such as low beamed ceilings, the cottage provides an excellent base for a family with plenty to see and do nearby.

Benefiting from a south-facing position, the cottage has far-reaching countryside views and three individually styled bedrooms, all of which overlook the garden.

On the ground floor are a well-equipped kitchen, dining room and sitting room, as well as a bathroom, whilst on a sunny day walk down to the bottom of the garden where the barbecue is situated and enjoy an alfresco meal.

Within walking distance of this delightful cottage is a superb organic farm shop, which specialises in its own produce, and the nearby village of Carnon Downs has a shop, Post Office and pub.

About the location


Truro 3.5 miles; Falmouth 8 miles.

The lovely Cornish village of Carnon Downs offers a shop, Post Office, pub and a golf club. Not too far away is the village of Portreath with its sandy beach, whilst the city of Truro and the popular town of Falmouth are within easy reach by car as is the north and south coastline with its sandy beaches, ideal for those wishing to surf or walk the coastpath. Fans of classic cars will enjoy a visit to Perranwell Station which gives you the opportunity to hire a Morgan car for the day. Also nearby in the Bissoe Valley is Bissoe Bike Hire where you can hire a bike and enjoy the sights of the old mining works and beautiful wooded valleys as you cycle coast to coast from Portreath to Devoran or just enjoy a snack in the café. Cornwall’s only city, Truro has a magnificent cathedral, the Royal Cornwall Museum, the Hall for Cornwall, which is a theatre and concert venue, as well as a number of shops, pubs and restaurants. In Falmouth you will find a natural harbour - the third largest in the world. Here you will find boat trips up the Carrick Roads, safe beaches, the National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle, which was built by Henry VIII and is the town’s most popular attraction. For garden lovers, there is not only The Lost Gardens of Heligan, but Trelissick, Trebah and Glendurgan, all of which are nearby. A short trip across the King Harry Ferry will take you to the beautiful Roseland Peninsular which is well worth a visit. With the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Land’s End within driving distance makes Carnon Downs a convenient base for exploring this part of Cornwall.
