Tolgus Mount is a semi-rural area between the town of Redruth and the coastal village of Portreath on the north Cornish coast.  Well positioned for access to the beaches and Cornish coastal path, taking you along the beautiful North Cliffs, Tehidy Country Park and Golf Course and the main transport links via a mainline rail link to London Paddington and the A30 trunk road.  The neighbouring village of Illogan has a useful convenience store, doctors surgery, chemist and takeaway whilst the nearby town of Redruth offers a good range of national and independent shops, a multi-screen cinema, bars and restaurants and schools for all ages.  The city of Truro is approximately ten miles away with a more comprehensive range of shopping and commercial facilities, County Hall and Royal Cornwall Hospital Treliske.
