"We live in the heart of the community so once the rest of the family are out of the house I can potter in the garden and chat to the neighbours and passers-by. From our front garden we can see Penhale Lake in the distance. It’s great that my sister and her family live over in Penwithick and that’s a nice, easy walk from here."

"I'm a local and grew up in an
around St Austell. We were lucky that
the new development has a priority
scheme for local people to buy first."
“Our new house faces the sun, is lovely and warm, and it’s so well insulated it hardly costs anything to heat. Friends say it looks like a house from a magazine – modern, but Cornish at the same time if that makes sense”
"I work in St Austell but today I’m taking the chance to spend some time in our new home with the baby, and getting out and about with the buggy and the dog. We’ve managed to get an allotment nearby so I often go to do some weeding!”
