The Location
Carnon Downs provides an excellent local shop/post office, butchers, dentists, and doctor's surgery. The area enjoys access to not only boating and sailing waters but also excellent countryside walking and riding along bridle paths and the Bissoe Trail, an 11-mile cycle path starting from Devoran and finishing on the north coast at Portreath. Truro is just 4 miles from the village and provides a broad range of educational and shopping facilities, along with a mainline rail link to London and a branch line to Falmouth. The port of Falmouth is approximately seven miles with its eclectic mix of shops and restaurants, bars, and excellent maritime facilities.

Restronguet Creek is a great place to keep a boat, providing easy access to the beautiful creeks of the Carrick Roads, arguably the finest day-sailing waters in the UK. Sailing facilities and clubs for all abilities are within easy reach at nearby Restronguet, Mylor, Flushing and Falmouth, which also boasts excellent marinas and an eclectic mix of shops, eateries, and pubs.

The nearby village of Devoran is a charming creekside community bordering the upper reaches of Restronguet Creek with its highly-regarded primary school, church, chapel, and the Old Quay Inn, a popular local pub. The neighbouring village of Perranwell Station benefits from another post office/shop, highly regarded pub, The Royal Oak, and regular train service to both Truro and Falmouth.
