Reskivers - Reskivers is essentially a hamlet about half a mile from the village of Tregony and mostly comprising a nucleus of individual cottages and larger traditional properties. It is a delightful hamlet with most of the houses accessed from an unmade lane just off the A3078 Truro to St. Mawes road and this particular property lies well away from the road and passing traffic.

The Roseland - Tregony is a thriving village sometimes referred to as the "Gateway to the Roseland" about seven miles from Truro with local facilities including general store, public house, churches and both primary and secondary schools. Scenic attractions of the Roseland peninsula are within easy driving distance and include the communities of Portloe, Portholland, Portscatho and Ruanlanihorne. It is ideally situated for riding, sailing and other water pursuits and many of the beaches and coastal land around the peninsula are owned and protected by the National Trust. Newquay airport is about thirty five minutes driving distance, there is a main line railway link to London (Paddington) at Truro and St. Austell and a local bus will stop in Reskivers.
