Freda’s is a cosy little waterside cottage in the hamlet of Malpas, just outside Truro. With a sunny enclosed garden and beautiful views across the Truro river, this holiday home is a haven for birdwatchers or simply a quiet place to relax and soak up some sun.

Freda’s is the ideal choice if you have a fisherman or sailing enthusiast in the family. A pathway, only shared with Lorna’s cottage, runs down to the foreshore and our private quay where you can leave your boat. Deep water moorings are available from the harbour master. There is also one private car parking space in the double garage opposite the property and street parking.

Downstairs consists of a practical kitchen, cosy dining and living area and a bright and spacious single bedroom. Upstairs the comfortably furnished double and twin bedrooms have stunning views of the estuary. There is also a bathroom, an additional separate toilet and a versatile small cloakroom.

With Truro city only two miles away, regular scenic river boat trips on the doorstep, sandy coves and picturesque tropical gardens close by, Freda’s is an ideal bolthole in a peaceful riverside setting.
