Fal River Cottage is a small, dog-friendly, traditional cottage, which benefits from the most amazing river views. It is based in Malpas (near Truro) and is just three doors down from the very popular Heron Inn. The cottage itself dates to the 1800's and was tastefully renovated in 2019, offering traditional features alongside modern-living luxuries. To the front, there is a small decked area which is ideal for alfresco breakfasts. This leads into the lounge, which is well equipped with a log burner, BT TV (with sports), books and games. To the rear of the cottage there is a new kitchen/dining area, which is well equipped for home cooking. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, which share a traditional ‘Jack'n'Jill' bathroom.

There is a spacious and light double bedroom allowing you to watch the river as you lie in bed. The second bedroom is a cozy single, which also serves as access to the rear garden. There are steep stairs leading to the rear garden featuring two separate seating areas, which both benefit from the amazing river views. The upper level is great for kicking back and lying down on those hot summer days when a little shade is welcome. The lower, patio area is more open and offers comfortable seating, perfect for relaxing in the tranquil surroundings of Cornish countryside.More

I booked this cottage for my parents 60th birthday as a surprise and let the property manager Phil know this. He went above and beyond to make sure the stay was memorable for my parents. Making sure there was some decorations on arrival with some treats personalised to their taste. He was very easy to communicate with and nothing was to small to ask. The cottage according to my parents was spotless and in a really great location with unbeatable views. I booked them into The Heron Inn which they throughly enjoyed and also Hooked in Truro which had amazing fish. My parents said their stay was one to remember and would love to go back in the summer.

Amazing cottage!!! Well equipped, Extremely clean and very comfortable, Close to everything, Loved the walks - our dog has never walked so much ever! People so friendly everywhere we went ( inc. Truro and Falmouth). Loved the log fire beautiful - after our walking sat back with a gin and tonic watched good movies and relaxed. We work long hours so was good not to have a clock dictating time. Slept for 8 hours, normally only get around 5 hours. Bed and pillows so comfortable. Views amazing from the cottage. Next door up for sale, looking into if we can afford to buy it lol :) Truro only couple of miles walk, great for shopping, Christmas Fayre was good also went to Falmouth and they had their Christmas fayre on with snow (Fake ) but great effect. The Heron pub 3 doors up is fantastic also dog friendly. The cottage owners are a dream to deal with absolutely nothing is too much trouble. What are you waiting for book now ! ;) Steve and Ali X

The owners of Fal River Cottage have created a lovely relaxing space. The cottage still echoes that sense of bygone times but marries beautifully with the contemporary. The welcoming touches were just the ticket after a long drive and extremely thoughtful. The river views and weather lent themselves to much dining alfresco on the front patio whilst watching the world ebb and flow. We took our stand up paddle boards so an early morning paddle was a highlight. There is a slipway only meters from the cottage. The cottage has everything you need to have a great holiday and the owners are keen to provide you a comfortable stay, reassuring you that they are only at the end of the phone, creating that further personal touch. The location of the cottage makes it a great base to explore Cornwall and car-free ways of appreciating the area included: A walk to Truro, the train to Falmouth and at Falmouth quay catch ferry back to Malpas, such a lovely way to return back 'home'. Lovely St Ives was all the better for catching the train from Truro (changing St Erth) which overlooks the iconic beaches that remind you of the riviera. Other trips: Visited Penzance (the lido is lovely) but a real treat was the beach at Porthcurno and the MInack Theatre. The Heron Inn is definitely a local food recommendation. There is free off-road parking which is limited when the sun is out and The Heron is busy. A good portion of fish and chips is to be had at Sole Plaice in Truro. A taxi to Truro costs circa £8 each way during the day using a2b taxis. There is service bus 496 (smaller single decker bus) from Malpas to Truro £2.30 adult single which stops at the Heron Inn but is limited to only several times a day.

About the neighbourhood
The village of Malpas is a former vibrant river port which connected Truro to the Roseland Peninsula via a local ferry service. This village is based on the confluence of the Tresillian and Truro rivers in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Fal River Estuary, which is also known as Carrick Roads (Cornish Dowr Carrek, meaning 'rock anchorage'). The area around Malpas is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Its extensive mudflats are an important feeding ground for wildfowl and wading birds, whereas trees on the riverbanks provide shelter for nesting herons. The village is also just outside the boundary of the Duchy of Cornwall estate on the banks of the Tresillian. There is an abundance of beautiful walks along the river.
Getting around
Malpas is only two miles to Truro with all it's rail and bus connections across Cornwall.
