Centred in the heart of Cornwall, Epiphany House is ideally located to explore the spectacular Cornish coastline, sandy beaches, beautiful gardens, unique heritage and lively cultural scene here in one of the UK’s most popular holiday destinations. The House is a short (15 minute) walk from the centre of the cathedral city of Truro and has easy access to public transport and to the A30. Our Grade 2 listed building sits within spacious, well-kept gardens which look out from Kenwyn over the edge of the cathedral city to the fields near Idless Woods. Formerly the Bishop’s Palace, the house combines comfort with elegance and has a peaceful atmosphere quite unlike anywhere else.
