  • Mrs Kheir

    “We arrived slightly early, with permission, to an immaculate cottage.”

    Everything was pristine and made us feel confident.

    Everything was pristine and made us feel confident. The owners were easily contactable and very responsive. The garden was large and very pretty, the area is very quiet but good access to the major routes. A very enjoyable stay and thoroughly recommended.

The property

A delightful 1930s bungalow situated in the peaceful village of Playing Place, just 2 miles from the popular town of Truro.

Quietly nestling amidst a handful of trees, this tranquil property offers peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, boasting an open fire in the sitting room, an electric fire in the dining room and a charming, well-established garden ideal for alfresco dining.

The shops, restaurants, museums and theatres in both Truro and Falmouth are close to hand, whilst exploring the gardens at Trelissick, Trebah, Glendurgan and the misty reaches of the river inlets leading to the sea at Falmouth and Helford will keep the inquisitive visitor occupied for days.

Even the King Harry Ferry offering day trips to the beautiful Roseland Peninsula is just a mere 2 miles away.

With Pendennis Castle, the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, St. Just in Roseland and the north coast of Cornwall also within a short drive, visitors can enjoy this perfectly placed retreat all year round.

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.
