At A Glance
Oysters is a delightful traditional 2 bedroom cottage in the village of Malpas, overlooking the upper navigable reaches of the Fal River at the point where the Fal, Truro and Tresillian rivers all converge. Malpas offers the best of both worlds as you can enjoy the beauty of the water along with the charming Cathedral City of Truro, which is just two miles away along the river, with its profusion of charming boutique shops, restaurants and cafes.
The terraced garden at Oysters, located at the back of the property, steep steps lead up to a sun terrace with spectacular views down the Malpas River.

Oysters is a homely and well-presented, and furnishings throughout the cottage are traditional in style. Malpas has a popular pub, the Heron Inn, which is just a hop, skip and jump away, which serves delicious food and is the perfect retreat for lunch or dinner.
Steps lead up to the front terrace; the front door opens directly into the sitting room, with a television and DVD player, along with the dining table. At the back of the cottage is the small but extremely well-equipped kitchen, with an electric stove, washing machine, fridge & microwave.
Stairs lead to the two bedrooms, a double to the front with views over the river, a twin bedroom to the back, and the family shower room with a wash hand basin and toilet.

From Easter to October, a small passenger water ferry runs, which you can embark on 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 National Trust Trelissick House & gardens. There are beautiful walks from the village along the river up to Truro or follow the meandering river up to St Clement’s and onto Tresillian, perfect for bird watchers.
Slightly further afield are the beautiful Cornish Gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan, situated on the picturesque Helford River, near Falmouth. Or visit the beautiful Roseland Peninsula, which can easily access via a short drive and hop on board the King Harry ferry.
We had a lovely time thank you.

Oysters was lovely. A perfect cottage in which to stay whilst visiting my daughter, who lives in Truro. Beautifully clean, with everything provided. Thank you, also, for the complimentary tea, coffee, milk and cake. Much appreciated when arriving down late on Sunday night.
Will definitely be booking again.

We had a fantastic time thank you. Very relaxing due to the view, setting and the pub! Did some great walks too.
Lovely little cottage too, comfy and well-appointed.
Mr Roberts - November 2022
We had an enjoyable week at Oysters and were quite comfortable there.
The beautiful views across the rivers were outstanding we even saw an Osprey flying above the conjunction of the rivers in front of the Heron Inn! (my husband is a keen bird watcher).
We hope that we will be able to repeat our stay in one of your properties in the future.
Many thanks on behalf of us all.
