NANCEALVERNE HOUSE

Nancealverne House is a Grade II Listed (starred) manor house and has been a family home for centuries.

The large, high-ceilinged rooms with light flooding in through elegantly proportioned 18th Century windows, have been comfortably furnished and overlook the landscaped parkland.

Historical authenticity is retained alongside modern facilities, with full oil central heating, Wi-Fi and cosy areas in which to relax. The accommodation comprises the majority of the ground floor and the entire first floor.

We have had such a fantastic time I really do not want to go home. The house is magnificent and the gardens are out of this world. We didn’t visit many places as we didn’t want to leave this lovely place. The lake was paradise.
Nancealverne House was once again the perfect holiday house for us. Very comfortable, clean and full of history. We enjoyed everyday especially watching the series Poldark. They should really film at Nancealverne House!!! Thank you family Armstrong for making this house one of the best in Cornwall!!

Our loveliest holiday yet at Nancealverne. This really is a most attractive and relaxing home in which to stay and we never cease to delight in all that it has to offer.
Nancealverne is so impressive - enchanting would not be too strong a word! I doubt there is any other holiday home like it!

Looking out from the front windows seemed like going back 100 years in time. I felt like I was actually in 'Pride and Prejudice'!
First impression on arriving at Nancealverne House - stunning... such a beautiful house. It has been filled with fun and laughter, afternoon tea and BBQs, boating on the lake, adventures in the woods and we hope to return.
