Within walking distance of the property, the historic Kenwyn church and a designated quiet lane leading to the rural hamlet of Idless where there are wonderful woodland walks and cycle trails along with an open-air café.

Truro boasts a wide and varied mix of national and boutique retailers found within the pretty cobbled streets radiating out from Truro’s 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.

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.
