Riversmeet is overlooking the stunning river and creek side views, close to the local family friendly pub and parks.

The spacious bathroom is located between the two bedrooms which has a bath with shower, sink, toilet, heated towel rail and a cupboard with full length mirror.

About Elaine

I am enjoying my retirement in Truro and have lots of interests keeping me busy. I am creative and arty. My daughter and grandchildren live nearby and I help out whenever needed. My daughter also helps me manage Riversmeet. I fell in love with Riversmeet when I first looked around it. It's a quaint cottage but it still feels airy and spacious. The modern tiled, open plan design downstairs with wood burner helps this feeling. Upstairs is also newly decorated and carpeted.

Elaine purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Elaine chose Saint Clement

The sleepy village of Malpas belies an undercurrent of activity and is a popular dwelling for locals. There is a lovely family pub, community centre, ferry and a strong, resident spirit where many village activities are organised. There is a beautiful creek side view which all the residents can benefit from as their properties all face the river. There is no through road which significantly reduces the traffic in Malpas and a delightful countryside walk to the nearby village of St Clements.

What makes this cottage unique

The close proximity to the family, local pub means cooking is not a necessity when on holiday. There is a ferry outside Riversmeet which takes you to Falmouth and St Mawes for the National Maritime museum, 'Ships and Castle' swimming pool and gym, castles, fish and chips, many lovely pubs, beaches and shops. The lovely Boscawen park with tennis courts, new play area, football pitches, cricket club, duck pond, restaurant is half a mile away. Truro city is a 2 minute car journey or bus ride away with plenty of shops and restaurants to try out. The cinema, theatre, museum, bowling alley can all be found there.

Lovely cosy cottage in a stunning setting!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place to stay in a great location. Views over the river from the top of the garden were superb. The nearby pub was friendly and served excellent meals including leisurely breakfasts overlooking the river. The trip by ferry to St Mawes was fabulous. House in a great position to visit other places of interest. The house was clean and comfy and made a great base!

Hübsch hergerichtetes Ferienhaus in ruhiger Lage

  • 4 of 5

Es ist ein Reihensteinhaus im südenglischen Stil: klein, alt aber sehr gut renoviert, geschmackvoll, modern. Der Blick auf den River ist vom Schlafzimmer im 1. Stock tatsächlich so schön und ebenso von der höchsten Plattform des steilen Minigartens.
