The hamlet of Crohans consists of a mere handful of properties and straddles a country lane, about a mile from the village of Veryan.
Veryan and Veryan Green comprise a most pleasant village famous for its 'Round Houses' in the beautiful Roseland Peninsula of South Cornwall, and is a true village community with a post office/mini-market, primary school, Church, an excellent pub and a Sports and Social club (including indoor bowls). It is also a conservation area and is approximately 1.2 miles from the unspoiled Pendower and Carne beaches. There are many lovely country walks in and around the village, and the Cornish Coastal Path is also within easy reach. The Cathedral City of Truro and administrative centre for Cornwall is 11 miles away with excellent shopping facilities. The King Harry Ferry, approximately 6 miles, provides a short cut to Falmouth and leads to the far west. The sailing centre of St Mawes is within 8 miles.
Veryan is most famous for its nineteenth century thatched Round Houses. There are five in all, two pairs of which stand at each end of the village and another in the centre. They were originally built by a missionary, named Reverend Jeremiah Trist, for his daughters. The present name of the village is a corruption of St Symphorian, the Parish saint, which in 1525 had become St Severian leading eventually to St Veryan. Close to Veryan is Carne Beacon, a Bronze Age grass covered barrow and reputedly the burial place of the legendary 6th century chieftain, Gereint of Dumnonia from whom the nearby village of Gerrans gets its name. Not far from there is Veryan Castle, a small Iron Age hill fort.
The Duchy itself provides an excellent opportunity for both living full time or holiday visits with a range of accessible attractions such as the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Glendurgan Gardens and the Tate Gallery. The Cathedral City of Truro is the main financial and commercial centre of Cornwall, with a fine range of main stream stores, independent shops and the main hospital in the county (RCH Treliske).
Cornwall has good road connection out of county and there are regular direct rail links to London Paddington, with Newquay Airport always expanding their routes, both nationally and international. There is a variety of restaurants in the surrounding area, on the Roseland, ranging from fine dining with Michelin star celebrity chef in abundance through to some of the best ‘fish and chip’ shops and ‘Pop Up’ outlets like the ‘Hidden Hut’ at Porthcurnick Beach. Both restaurants and ‘Artisan’ food producers specialise in offering a large range of locally sourced products from local farm shops, whilst there is always locally sourced fish available, including famous Fal estuary oysters, lobsters and crab!
