Persimmon Homes


Cornwall is the go-to location for coastal life. With beautiful beaches, rugged moorland and quaint towns and villages, it’s no wonder that this South West gem is a dream location for many homeowners.

The ever-changing scenery pairs well with its flourishing creative scene, encouraging a strong entrepreneurial spirit alongside those looking for a peaceful retirement. If you want to buy a home in an area that promotes slow, mindful living, then this is the place for you.

New housing developments in Cornwall

Here at Persimmon Homes, we like to think of our homes as a testament to Cornwall. Many people visit for their beach holidays, but there’s beauty here all year round. There’s always plenty to do and lots to see, but you’ll never feel the quick pace as you would in larger urban areas like London.

Our new builds are warm and inviting, welcoming you home after spending the day at work or at the seaside. 

Living in Cornwall

Work/life balance

Many people move to Cornwall to start a new business, work remotely for their existing job, or settle down for retirement. Even when living in Truro, the county’s business capital, you can slow down and enjoy the culture. If you’re looking to break away from fast-paced work life, choose a Persimmon new build right here in Cornwall.

With festivals and stunning attractions, there’s lots to do outside of your new home. And let’s not forget about the food culture. From hot flaky pasties, salty fish and sugary cream teas, you’ll love filling the cupboards in your new build kitchen with these Cornish classics.

But that doesn’t mean it’s all play and no work. This county inspires innovation, with plenty of support for those looking to start their own business or join one already established. Whether you want to join the booming creative industry or start your career in more traditional sectors like agriculture, buying a home here means building a flourishing career right by the sea.

Sun, sea and rural scenes

Cornwall’s culture is greatly influenced by the sea, with glittering harbour towns along the coast attracting all kinds of homeowners. Falmouth is situated on the opening of River Fal, and no matter which path you take, you’ll usually find yourself on the seafront.

The county’s seafront gem, the Lizard Peninsula, is right on your doorstep at our Trehenlis Gardens development. Popular beaches Fistral and Watergate can be found in Newquay - the ultimate seaside destination for those wanting a new build on the coast.

But it’s not all about the sea. In fact, it has its own moorlands located throughout the county, beautiful enough to rival the Yorkshire Dales. Liskeard is a market town close to bustling Bodmin - also known as the county’s cycling hub. So if you’d rather live amongst rolling green hills than the blue sea, our new builds offer you just that.

An eco-friendly county

In Cornwall, sustainability is integrated into everyday life. The county’s residents are more passionate about going green than the rest of the UK, so if you’re keen to make a difference and live in a place that promotes a better quality of life, a new build in this location is the great step.

Careers in the sustainability sector flourish as a result, and the county’s green strategy adds a tangible effect to everyday life. There’s a variety of leafy green spaces to explore, including the renowned Eden Project. Consistently rated as one of the UK’s most eco-friendly locations, Persimmon Homes has taken the same stance with our new builds. Our homes are 30% more energy efficient than traditional UK homes, and our housing developments have access to public transport, encouraging sustainable travel. A Cornish Persimmon home is perfect for those wanting to lead a greener lifestyle.
