Why move to Camborne?

Camborne is just minutes’ drive from a number of glorious, golden north-coast beaches, all renowned for great surfing. On the town’s doorstep are some of the finest scenery and heritage in all Cornwall; from bluebell-laden woods at Pendarves and Tehidy to the dramatic cliffs at Hell’s Mouth; there are the fascinating mining sites at King Edward Mine and East Pool and the mysterious, windswept Neolithic monuments at Giant’s Quoit. The town was recently voted the friendliest in the West Country and has a great community feel and relaxed Cornish way of life.

Camborne has benefited from substantial investment in the last 20 years and boasts a variety of good, independent shops within the town centre, ranging from fashion shops, florists and cafés to sports shops and a cycling shop. A couple of miles out of town, there are bigger stores such as Tesco, Home Bargains, Homebase and Pets at Home.

The popular Friday market is a weekly highlight, with stalls offering a range of locally produced foods and gifts from baked goods to greengrocery and crafts.

An area rich in heritage

Camborne was built during tin mining’s heyday in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, when Cornwall was the richest mining area in the world; the period in which TV’s Poldark is set. Reminders of this glorious heritage remain with a landscape marked by iconic engine houses and mine infrastructures.

Great transport links

Camborne is situated on the A30, with quick access to Redruth, Truro and Hayle, and to the rest of Cornwall.

The railway station provides services to Penzance and Plymouth as well as to Reading, London Paddington and cross-country services to Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow.

Newquay Airport is only 40 minutes away with routes to UK and Irish airports as well as European destinations.

Good local schools

Good local schools include the Ofsted-rated ‘outstanding’ Happy Days nursery in nearby Illogan and range up to good Camborne Science and International Academy and Camborne Sixth Form College.
