This week's Packet Pad is this exceptional, five-bedroom family home in Budock Water.


'Gwithian House' is a deceptive, detached, individual house which has been extended and improved to provide exceptional family accommodation in this ever‐popular village, close to the outskirts of Falmouth.

Falmouth Packet:

Benefitting from double glazing and oil fired central heating, the adaptable accommodation can provide single‐ storey living if required, with two bedrooms and well appointed family bathroom at ground floor level. Also off a spacious entrance hall is a well proportioned lounge with open fireplace, picture window with valley views and double doors into a side porch/conservatory. A lovely family sized double aspect kitchen/breakfast room has windows to both front and rear elevations and off which, a lobby leads to a large utility room with secondary access from the forecourt, and to an extremely versatile dining room, formerly a integral garage, which could also be used as a playroom, TV room or further ground floor bedroom if required, etc.

Falmouth Packet:

Upstairs, the master bedroom suite is extremely well proportioned and benefits from its own private bathroom with separate shower cubicle. There are two further bedrooms, both also with built‐in wardrobes, with bedroom three currently located through a shower room; an arrangement which can easily be reconfigured if preferred.

The front gardens have been attractively landscaped, planted and laid with brick pavias to provide ample off‐road parking for several vehicles, together with space for a garage if needed, subject to consents.

The rear gardens are a particular feature, being access to both sides of the property, as well as from the rear lobby where a stable door opens onto a raised decked terrace, with double doors from the dining room, from where particularly lovely views are enjoyed along the valley.

Falmouth Packet:

The gardens are well enclosed to all sides by fencing and hedging and, therefore, are sheltered, private and ideal for those with children and pets, etc.

A useful basement contains the oil fired boiler and provides a good sized storage and workshop area with 6' head height.


The village of Budock Water is situated less than one mile from the outskirts of Falmouth.

The village has a church, public house and newsagent/general stores. St Marys and St Francis junior schools are just a few minutes drive away, as is Falmouth's secondary school, off Trescobeas Road, which leads to Falmouth town centre, with its excellent range of shopping, commercial and leisure amenities.

Falmouth Packet:

Regular bus services connect the village with Falmouth and Mawnan Smith, beyond which are the tree‐lined sailing waters of the Helford River. Safe sandy bathing beaches are nearby at Swanpool and Maenporth, numerous rural walks surround the village, and the cathedral city of Truro, the county's administrative, retailing, commercial, health and educational centre, is approximately 12 miles away,


Proceed into the village of Budock Water from Falmouth. Proceed passed the Trelowarren Arms, and the left‐hand turnings for Trevoney and Treveryn Parc, shortly after which 'Gwithian House' will be found on the left‐hand side.
