Lime Tree House is located on the eastern edge of Penryn, just behind the 12th century Church of St Gluvias. The parish of St Gluvias pre-dates Penryn, founded around 1216 by the Bishop of Exeter, with the church we see today having been restored in 1883.
Penryn is now a vibrant town with a wide variety of small businesses based along the waterside with the historic town centre including coffee shops, bars, celebrated sushi restaurant, country stores, fish mongers, cycle shops, interiors boutique along with many others. The town is also on the branch line rail connecting Falmouth with Truro and the nearby university campus at Tremough provides a wide range of courses including performing and visual arts, along the Innovation Centre for independent Cornish businesses.
The nearby waterside village of Flushing is a beautiful setting with its streets lined with former sea captains’ houses and a foot ferry across the river to Falmouth, the thriving harbour town with its Packet Ships history and independent shops, restaurants, stunning seafront and buzzing atmosphere.
