Two pretty cottages to rent in an historic spot close to Truro and St Austell

Wed 10 Aug 2016

Nansough is a pretty hamlet close to Truro and St Austell. In a secluded spot within the community is Alansmere Court, a collection of stone-built properties set around a courtyard. Two of those properties are available to rent. 


Both have a lounge/diner, kitchen, bathroom, spacious double bedroom, parking and use of mature, landscaped, communal gardens – built around a central seating area.


The hamlet sits on the outskirts of Ladock, a historically significant village, yet thoroughly modern as it strives together with the nearby village of Grampound Road, to become Cornwall’s premier sustainable village and set an example to the rest of the county.


The heart of the Ladock is its 17th century pub, The Falmouth Arms – an original coaching inn on the road that was once the main route into west Cornwall. The road still passes through the much admired wooded Ladock Valley, which is now owned by the Duchess of Cornwall. The Duchy is committed to maintaining the woods and forestry. Most of the valleys in the area were streamed for tin and it’s in the River Ladock that some of Cornwall’s largest nuggets of gold have been found.


“The cottages are just lovely and the surrounding area is beautiful and so rich in history,” said Jules Harrison, Manager of the central and south east Cornwall lettings office. “The pub is a freehouse and acclaimed for the quality of its food, beer and wines and Ladock has the added advantage of a village store and post office.”


One of the cottages is available, unfurnished, for £580 pcm the other is furnished and available for £560 pcm. Full details are available tel: 01726 72236.
