The location
Located near the head of tranquil Penpol Creek, a tributary of the Fal Estuary, Hebasca enjoys a quiet traffic-free position and fine southerly views over Penpol to Restronguet Creek and the unspoilt surrounding countryside.

The creekside villages of Penpol, Point and Devoran were once a hive of the mining industry. With most traces of this activity now gone, the creek and surroundings have become one of the most highly coveted areas in Cornwall by virtue of the peaceful and picturesque setting with close proximity to Truro and Falmouth. The track of the old mineral railway, the Old Tram Road, leads from Point along the creek to Devoran providing a great walk or cycle, and finishing at the Old Quay Inn in Devoran.

The Fal Estuary meanders its way from Falmouth to the head of the River Fal at Truro. Falmouth is the third largest natural harbour in the world and the area known as Carrick Roads extends four miles from Black Rock to Turnaware Point with nowhere being less than one mile wide. For the keen sailor, this area of the south Cornish coast offers several sailing clubs with the sailing waters considered to be some of the finest in the UK. Falmouth is a bustling harbour town with a fascinating maritime history, excellent restaurants, sandy beaches and a great atmosphere.

Truro is the administrative centre of Cornwall and offers excellent schooling and mainline rail links to London Paddington. It has a small but comprehensive city centre and a nice selection of boutiques, along with restaurants, a cinema, galleries, museums and theatre.
