The Location - The hamlet of Rescassa is set within totally rural surroundings just over a mile from Gorran Churchtown and nearly two miles from the harbourside village of Gorran Haven. At Gorran Churchtown there is a parish church, public house and a local primary school and in Gorran Haven there is a bakery and various other facilities including those geared to the tourist industry. One of the most notable attractions of the position is the nearness of the southwest coast path and the beach at Porth Luney Cove (Caerhays) which is exceptional. Notwithstanding the quiet nature of the location the hamlet is easily accessible to both Truro and St. Austell and both of these busy centres are within approximately half an hour driving distance. Other attractions of the area include The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Lobbs farm shop (just over 2 miles from the property) and the Eden Project which is just east of St. Austell. The whole area is recognised as being of outstanding natural beauty and this includes the entirety of the nearby Roseland Peninsula.
