  • "24, St Gluvias Street is a house with 'personality', on a steep, narrow historic street in an ancient market town."

    The house was spotlessly clean, and decorated throughout in fresh, cool, bright colours - mainly white with accents of blue - suitable for its maritime setting. The main bedroom is very spacious and the furniture is handsome and has a 'crafted' feel to it that matches the atmosphere of the house. The heating is extremely efficient and had been turned on so generously that we ended up turning it off in some rooms, even though it was March! The website specifies that this is not a suitable house for small children, because of the steps up and steps down into rooms - this is true, and a sensible warning. If one had mobility problems/poor balance this might also be something to take into consideration. We wondered if parking might be a problem in summer? There is indeed, as the website says, a free car park just round the corner from the cottage, but even in March it was sometimes difficult to find a free space.

About the location


Falmouth 1 mile; Truro 9 miles.

One of the oldest market towns in Cornwall, the pretty port of Penryn boasts a wealth of historic architecture and harbour heritage with attractive granite buildings steeply sloping along the cobbled streets down to the sea. There’s a good choice of restaurants, cafes and pubs in the town, along with a museum offering free entry, and the tranquil Enys Gardens on the outskirts of the town, providing a range of grounds and a peaceful haven. Further along the Penryn River, just one mile towards the sea you’ll find the famous seaport of Falmouth, with a host of things to keep you entertained including harbour-side pubs and eateries offering spectacular views, stunning Blue Flag beaches and a bustling town centre. Visit the National Maritime Museum for a taste of Cornwall’s sea-faring history, or the fine Tudor fortress of Pendennis Castle, superb set gazing out to sea. You don’t have to venture far from Penryn to discover Cornwall’s many sights, delights and stunning coastline, and this is the perfect character base from which to see it all.
