Malpas is in the civil Parish of St Clement and is a popular centre for boating with navigable waterways to Truro, Falmouth and the Roseland peninsula via the seasonal Enterprise boats which dock at the jetty at the bottom of the hill. Malpas lies within the Cornwall area of outstanding natural beauty which has the same protection as a National Park. There is a myth that Iseult, from the Arthurian legend of Tristan and Iseult, used Malpas as a crossing point.

The Cathedral city of Truro in the heart of Cornwall is only about a 2 mile drive away and has a wide selection of good shopping including a Waitrose, Tescos, Sainsburys, Marks & Spencer and many other high street outlets. There is also a cinema and a great selection of restaurants, pubs & cafes. Dominated by the stunning cathedral, it is one of the south west's most attractive cities. Lemon Quay plays host to many events throughout the year including the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival in the Autumn and the famous Truro Fatstock Show just before Christmas. Regular farmers markets occur every Wednesdays & Saturday and there are also arts & craft markets on Saturdays. It really is worth a wander through the back streets and alleys to find some fabulous little boutiques.

The resort of Newquay is about 16 miles to the north with its spectacular surf beaches at Fistral & Watergate Bay. Jamie Oliver's "Fifteen" restaurant is located here. Padstow, with its fine selection of restaurants influenced by Rick Stein is just over 20 miles, these include Nathan Outlaws Enodoc Hotel in Rock and Paul Ainsworths No 6 in Padstow, both of which have been awarded a Michelin Star.

The yachting centres of Mylor, Falmouth & St Mawes are all within easy reach of the cottage. There is a watersports centre at nearby Loe Beach where you can hire kayaks, paddle boards and motorboats or brush up on your sailing skills with some lessons. The nearby Roseland Area of Outstanding Beauty with its superb coastal walks is also a short drive away via the King Harry Ferry.

May 2017 a few days at Herons Catch.

Lovely ,modern clean property.Everything you need and more for a short stay. This was booked by my daughter as a Christmas present.Welcome basket on arrival was a lovely touch. The only downside was an early morning alarm as the neighbours came down there stairs. I can imagine during summer that parking will be a nightmare. Would highly recommend.

Holiday trip

We had a brilliant 1 week stay at Herons cottage. When we arrived the cottage was clean, tidy and well equipped. There were also some nice small touches, such as milk in the fridge, fresh bread, a bottle of wine and butter. The cottage was in a brilliant location overlooking the river, and a nice 30-40ish minute walk into the city centre. The views from the back garden were fantastic, particularly on a sunny day watching the rowers go by and the light reflecting off the water. Overall a really nice cottage, that I'd struggle to fault, in a great location, I'd definitely stay there again.

Lovely stay

A great place for our first holiday as a family of 3. The house is stunning, beautifully finished and super comfortable-so much so that we didn't feel the need to dine out! Thank you for a lovely stay, we'll definitely be back!

Wonderful upside down terraced house in Malpas

Wonderful updated terraced house in Malpas with living room/kitchen upstairs to take advantage of the river views. Everything inside was new, clean and modern especially the kitchen, bathroom and shower room and the beds were very comfortable. The outside seating area at the top of the rear garden looks great unfortunately the weather in March was not warm enough for us to use.

Lovely stylish cottage by the river

Herons Catch is a lovely and very stylish two bedroom cottage by the river in Malpas near Truro. The Heron pub is nearby and serves food if you can't be bothered to cook but the kitchen is modern and fully equipped. I stayed in November and the weather was mainly wet and miserable but the cottage was warm and cosy thanks to very efficient electric radiators. Boscowan park on the way to Truro(approx. 2 miles away) has tennis courts,two coffee shops and a new adventure playground for children. Truro itself has a cinema, theatre, several good restaurants and all the main retailers. Charlottes an old fashioned tea room in the coin exchange is also worth a visit. From Malpas I did day trips to other parts of the County as nowhere is that far. There is no off road parking so this is the only downside in peak season but no problem at other times. The owners left a welcome basket and there was milk and butter in the fridge which was very thoughtful as there was no need to dash to the shops after a long drive. Malpas is a small and friendly community and I very much enjoyed my stay .I would definitely book Herons Catch again on my next visit to Cornwall.

great cottage, great location

This was one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in - it was amazingly clean, tidy and well equipped. The view and location are superb. The details on the website probably need to emphasise not only the steepness of the garden but also the number of steps and stairs to be negotiated. That step up to the front door could probably be made easier. I admire the fact that you let dogs stay in such a clean and brightly decorated place - we were very glad it was a dry week as controlling dirt with a wet dog would have been an adventure! Two front door keys would also be useful. One of us taking the dog out early either meant leaving the door unlocked, or the other one being locked in. Overall though, a great cottage and we may well come again.

Reply from Sarah Smith (owner)

Thank you, Andrew for your review. We agree, the garden is really steep and we are in the process of landscaping it a little bit more to make it a little easier. We will also take note of your request for two keys and supply in 2017. Hopefully we welcome you again next year.

Fabulous house, views and location.

We recently stayed at this gorgeous home, everything was lovely and clean and the welcome basket went down well with my daughters after the 8 hour drive. The garden is steep but view at the top is well worth it. House was home from home with nothing missing. The location is excellent for getting around all the best beaches in Cornwall, and If you like York then Truro feels quite similar. Can't wait to go back again.

Reply from Sarah Smith (owner)

Thanks so much Lyndsey - was lovely to meet you and your family. Can't wait to see you all again next year!
