Ideally situated for easy access to both the north Cornish coast and Truro, Appletree Cottage is found in the hamlet of Allet, a semi-rural countryside location just outside the popular village of Shortlanesend, and just three miles from the city of Truro. Within Allet there is a small selection of individual country homes and within half a mile of the property, the local amenities include a shop/post office, public house and highly regarded primary school.
A comprehensive range of banking, schooling, retail, and recreational facilities are in Truro close by. Truro boasts a wide and varied mix of national and boutique retailers found within the pretty cobbled streets radiating out from the iconic cathedral. An eclectic mix of restaurants, coffee shops and bars along with a cinema and art galleries, are complemented by the national-class Hall for Cornwall, which is nearing the end of a multi-million pound refurbishment. The A30 is also within easy reach of the property as are the excellent surfing beaches, including Perranporth, St Agnes, Porthtowan and Newquay.
Sports enthusiasts are particularly well-catered for with two tennis clubs, squash club, rugby, football and cricket clubs within the city. Water sports are readily accessible with the north coast surfing beaches and highly regarded sailing waters of the Carrick Roads on the south coast, both within a short drive.
