The Location
The Carclew Estate is the former home of the prominent Cornish family, the Bonythons, and later belonged to the Lemon family, immortalised on Truro’s Lemon Street. The main house was gutted by fire in the 1930s and the Grade 2 Listed ruins are a prominent and wonderful floodlit feature within the grounds. Full of plants and trees collected by former owners over generations, the grounds of the estate have been listed in many botanical and horticultural journals over the centuries.

The creekside village of Mylor Bridge is nearby and offers a good range of services including school, general store, post office, pub, butchers, fish shop, dentists and doctors. Fantastic sailing facilities are close at hand, notably at Mylor Yacht Harbour where Sir Ben Ainslie learnt to sail. Over recent years, this has become one of the UK’s pre-eminent boating centre with two sailing clubs, full service boatyard with pontoon and sheltered moorings withj excellent access to the tree-lined creeks of The Carrick Roads and open sea beyond.

Both Falmouth and Truro have comprehensive shopping and commercial facilities. The mainline rail service from Truro offers a service to London Paddington as well as a branchline to Falmouth with a halt at nearby Perranwell Station, just over two miles from the property. Cornwall Airport (near Newquay) offers flights to a variety of destinations
