The Location
Killifreth Stamps is positioned to the west of Chacewater, a local village with a pub, shop, small garden centre, village hall, bakery, takeaway, doctors surgery, nursery and primary school.

Many walks and trails are literally on your doorstep, predominantly along the Bissoe Trail – a coast to coast trail linking nearby Devoran to Portreath on the north coast.

The rugged north coast and surfing beaches are easily accessed from the property, and both Falmouth and Truro are within short drives providing an extensive range of facilities including both private and public schooling and colleges, hospitals, the National Maritime Museum, Hall for Cornwall and mainline railway connection to London Paddington. Cornwall Airport (Newquay) is just 20 miles away with a range of domestic and international flights on offer throughout the year.

Killifreth Stamps enjoys a peaceful rural setting combined with a highly convenient position between the coasts; the perfect gateway to many of the best aspects of south and west Cornwall.
