The pretty village of Gulval is the nearest neighbour to Penzance on it’s eastern side. In the centre of the village is a popular public house and an historic 14th century church. The area is surrounded by beautiful countryside and moor walks over to Newmill and Zennor via Chysauster, an ancient iron age village. The house itself is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, it is also within easy striking distance of the beaches at Eastern Green, Long Rock and Marazion, home of the iconic St Michaels Mount which forms part of the view from this very special home. Also nearby at Eastern Green are Sainsburys, Tesco and Morrisons supermarkets with a more comprehensive shopping and commercial setup available in Penzance along with a mainline rail terminus which connects direct to London Paddington.
