The highly favoured village community of Mylor Bridge, lying at the head of Mylor Creek off the River Fal, has its own junior school and an above average selection of local amenities including a general store, post office, fishmonger, butcher, newsagent, popular pub and restaurant. The Elms lies down its own private driveway off the road from Six Turnings which leads on to the boat yard in Tregatreath. The harbour, one of the smallest and earliest Naval Dockyards, has now become a haven for the boating enthusiast and yachtsman. It includes a modern marina and associated facilities, chandlery, restaurant, café and wine bar together with a sailing and yacht club. The Cathedral City and administrative centre of Truro is approximately 9 miles to the north and the colourful harbourside town and shipyard of Falmouth approximately 5 miles to the south.

Gardens and Grounds
The Elms has a private drive off the adopted lane which approaches the property via a gated entrance passing the rear of the house and opening to a generous parking and turning area adjacent to the double garaging. The gardens are mainly very secluded, comprising lawned areas with some large evergreen and flowering shrubs and mature trees, all making for ease of maintenance. There is an easy slipway and access to the foreshore which is held under license from Cornwall Council at an annual rent of about £172.67 pa. In all a delightful setting with lovely uninterrupted views of the creek and shoreline.
