Lorna’s is our popular waterside retreat, delightfully situated in the small hamlet of Malpas on the Truro River. Comfortably spacious, bright and airy, this versatile riverside holiday home is well equipped for sociable family gatherings and friendly get-togethers, particularly in combination with Freda’s cottage next door.

The brand new, fully fitted kitchen with ample worktop space is any chef’s dream. Bay windows stream sunshine into the open plan dining and living area – perfect for entertaining around the large wooden table next to the comfortable leather sofas grouped cosily around the open fireplace. Two steps away, you can enjoy outdoor dining or evening drinks in the adjacent garden, a secluded suntrap overlooking the estuary. Upstairs is a sumptuous master king size bedroom, complete with en-suite and superb bay window. Two twin bedrooms share the second bathroom just off the landing.

All living areas benefit from the stunning panoramic views across the estuary, making Lorna’s ideal for birdwatchers, yachtsmen and fishermen alike. Moreover, steps from the garden run down to the water’s edge and our private quay, only shared with Freda’s cottage, where you can leave your boat on the foreshore or kayaks on the quayside. Deep water moorings are available from the harbour master. There is also one designated car parking space in the garage opposite the property and street parking.

Lorna’s offers peace and tranquillity in the very heart of Cornwall with excellent shopping and restaurant facilities in Truro city only two miles away. Sandy beaches on either coast, famous tropical gardens, heritage properties and scenic boat trips are all on your doorstep.
