THE LOCATION This thoroughly appealing house is located a few minutes relatively level walk from the centre of this thriving, much sought after creekside village. It has an active, friendly community and excellent facilities that include a highly regarded primary school, pre-school, playgroups, Doctor's surgery, Dentist, Churches, the Lemon Arms pub, Post Office and Newsagent, Hairdressers, well stocked village store, award winning Butcher's shop and a Fishmonger. The Village Hall has an extensive program that includes exhibitions, history group, keep-fit classes and monthly cinema. There are also several local clubs, tennis courts, a bowling green, playing fields plus regular bus service. Small wonder that the Sunday Times named Mylor Bridge as 'One of the Best Places to Live' (2015).
The Village is located approximately 4 miles from the harbour town of Falmouth and 8 miles from the Cathedral City of Truro - both of which have good schools, excellent shops, business and recreational facilities.
Mylor Creek is a tributary of the River Fal, leading into the Carrick Roads with access to some of the best day sailing waters. There are a number of yacht clubs nearby including those at Restronguet, Mylor, Flushing and several in Falmouth. Mylor Harbour, just a short distance away, has outstanding facilities including a Marina with pontoon and swinging moorings, chandlers, marine services plus restaurants and general store/café.
