What our client said
We cannot recommend Shore Partnership enough. Selling our house was a big decision for us, but working with you all made the process as easy as it could be. You appear to be available all the time, making us feel like your priority (whilst doing the same for your other buyers and sellers!). Your communication throughout was brilliant and you dealt with all aspects so personally. You have a business that you should all be very proud of and we cannot recommend you enough. Not your average estate agent! Thank you for helping us start the next chapter of our lives.

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.
