At A Glance
Malpas is only 2 miles from Truro, with access to beautiful waterside and country walks, located in the creekside village of Malpas on the banks of Truro river and has the renowned Heron Inn public house; Malpas village is approached via a tree-lined lane and is only a few minutes from the city centre’s facilities.
The area has an abundance of wildfowl and wading birds. These include Egrets, Curlews, Ospreys and of course, the native Grey Heron.
There’s a small passenger water ferry that runs throughout the spring/summer seasons from which you can embark from the local marina. From here, you can explore the hidden treasures of the Truro River, visit Falmouth, St Mawes or take a walk around the beautiful unspoilt gardens of Trelissick House, a local National Trust property.
