When you think of Cornwall, images of rugged coastlines, charming fishing villages, and iconic tourist destinations likely come to mind. But beyond the well-trodden paths lies a Cornwall waiting to be discovered – one filled with lesser-known areas jam packed with unique charm and appeal. 

Join us as we explore some of these hidden treasures, each with its own distinct personality and allure.


1. Perranporth – A Surfer’s Paradise

While Newquay may steal the spotlight as Cornwall’s surfing capital, Perranporth quietly offers some of the best waves in the region. Located on the north coast, Perranporth boasts a long sandy beach and consistent swells, making it a haven for surfers. But it’s not just for wave riders; the town’s welcoming atmosphere and scenic coastal walks make it a fantastic place to call home.

Stephens + Stephens has a range of properties in Perranporth, providing you with the opportunity to live by the sea and enjoy the laid-back coastal lifestyle.


2. Charlestown – A Historic Harbour

If you have a penchant for history and maritime heritage, look no further than Charlestown. This charming harbour village on the south coast is frozen in time, with its 18th-century shipwreck rescue boats and historic port. It’s a true living museum for those who appreciate Cornwall’s seafaring past.

Our developments in Charlestown offer a chance to be part of this living history, with period properties and modern homes nestled in this unique coastal community.


3. Lostwithiel – Riverside Tranquility

For a tranquil riverside retreat, Lostwithiel is a hidden gem worth considering. Nestled in the Fowey Valley, this picturesque town is known for its beautiful riverfront and quaint streets. It’s the perfect place for those seeking a quieter pace of life while remaining close to Cornwall’s natural beauty.

Stephens + Stephens properties in Lostwithiel offer a peaceful escape, with access to riverside walks and the scenic countryside.


4. Gorran Haven – A Secluded Cove

Gorran Haven, tucked away on the Roseland Peninsula, is a secluded cove with crystal-clear waters and a peaceful ambiance. It’s an idyllic spot for beach lovers and those who crave a coastal hideaway.

Our developments in Gorran Haven provide the opportunity to wake up to the sound of the waves and enjoy the simple pleasures of coastal living.


5. Mevagissey – Quaint Fishing Village

While Mevagissey isn’t entirely unknown, it often stands in the shadow of larger tourist destinations. This quaint fishing village boasts colourful cottages, a bustling harbour, and a vibrant fishing industry. It’s a delightful place to experience Cornwall’s maritime culture up close.
