The property occupies an enviable position being within the beautiful parish of Kea, a fabulous little rural community offering easy access to Truro and Falmouth whilst enjoying the close amenities of Playing Place (1mile) with its own general store/post office. Kea Community Primary School is half a mile from the property. 2.5 miles to the north is the Cathedral City of Truro offering a first-class range of shopping facilities, public and private sector schooling and a main line railway station. To the south lies the University town of Falmouth and running between the two are the superb sailing waters of the Fal Estuary, very accessible being around three miles away, as is the slipway at Loe Beach.

The surrounding countryside is exquisitely beautiful whilst it is ideally located for access to both the north and south coasts of the County.
