About Cornwall

You can’t get further west than the ancient Celtic kingdom of Cornwall (or Kernow, as it’s known to Cornish-speakers). Blessed with the southwest’s wildest coastline and most breathtakingly beautiful beaches, this proudly independent peninsula has always marched to its own tune.

While the staple industries of old – mining, fishing and farming – have all but disappeared, Cornwall has since reinvented itself as one of the nation’s creative corners. Whether it’s exploring the space-age domes of the Eden Project, sampling the culinary creations of a celebrity chef or basking on a deserted beach, you’re guaranteed to feel the itch of inspiration.

Explore the winding streets of the pretty fishing villages of St Ives & Padstow, take to the coast path on the dramatic coastlines of the Roseland & Lands End heritage areas of natural beauty or take to the museums and shops of towns such as Penzance, St Austell or Cornwall’s only city Truro, there are activities for all tastes in Kernow.

Renting in Cornwall

The Director, Sean, says:

“The rental sector in Cornwall is a constantly growing and engaging industry. Market rents can vary massively across the inland towns and coastal fishing villages across the county and what sets us apart is our broad knowledge to cover this wide spectrum. The desirable county of Cornwall can result in house prices being unaffordable for many locals, the rental sector provides a great opportunity for many to live in their ideal location for work or leisure. The fast-paced market means that prospective tenants must act quickly and the agent must match that will and desire to ensure that all clients are satisfied through what can be a stressful time.”

Buying in Cornwall

The Director, Sean, says:

“Buying and selling in Cornwall is a hugely satisfying industry to work in. One day you are finding practical family homes for locals that can fit a list of requirements and the next you are searching out the dream home for a retired couple who always wanted to live by the sea. Helping people fulfill these goals with as little stress as possible is what we strive to achieve and handing a new set of keys to a set of smiling faces is what this job is all about.”
