Living in Truro

Natural beauty in every direction

Cornwall is famous for its natural beauty. With rugged coastlines, perfect beaches, forests and moorland stretching across the county, there’s no shortage of stunning outdoor space to enjoy. Truro is just a stone’s throw from the Roseland Heritage Coast and is located within easy reach of all these different environments.

Natural space has been proven to be good for your well-being, but it also opens up an active, healthy lifestyle. A new home in Truro gives you access to all these fantastic places and means you can easily partake in outdoor activities like swimming, hiking, cycling and sailing.

A small city with lots to offer

Truro might be one of the smallest cities in the UK, but it packs a lot into its modest size. With the backdrop of its Gothic cathedral, cobbled streets and beautiful Georgian architecture, the city is a charming place to explore. From great shopping at Lemon Quay and outstanding restaurants to the region’s biggest hospital and a great range of schools, everything will be within easy reach of your new home.

It’s also well connected, with the A30 linking Penzance and Exeter nearby, and a train station that offers direct links to London.

A city of opportunities

Moving to Cornwall to enjoy a better pace of life doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your career. Truro is Cornwall’s economic centre and offers plenty of options for your work life. It’s the civic and health hub of the region, and there are many positions available in healthcare, education and creative industries. As a popular tourist destination, there’s also a thriving tourism, hospitality and marine sector. A new build house here means you’re at the centre of all these exciting opportunities.
