Why move to Camborne?

Camborne is a lovely town in Cornwall with some of the best beaches in the country. It has a lively atmosphere with plenty of local shops and businesses. Within the town there is picturesque scenery and nature, as well as only being a few mile from the stunning cliffs of Hell’s Mouth.

 

History

Camborne is also the birthplace of Richard Trevithick, inventor of the steam engine. Known as one of Cornwall’s most famous sons, Trevithick built the first full-scale steam locomotive in 1801 and his ‘Puffing Devil’ was the first passenger-carrying road vehicle (forerunner to the motor car). It had its first test run on Christmas Eve, up Camborne Hill, and this journey inspired the popular Cornish folk song ‘Camborne Hill’. A statue of Trevithick stands outside the public library and annual celebrations are held in the town around the end of April on Trevithick Day to commemorate his legacy.

 

Location

Within 7 miles of Camborne are a wealth of sandy Cornish beaches including Portreath, Gwithian and Porthtowan. All are popular with families, surfers and walkers alike with great facilities and exceptional views.

With direct access onto the A30, Camborne has excellent transportation links combined with a mainline railway station which provides daily services to London Paddington. Retail options are in abundance with many major national retailers being located in the town centre and there are also many local shops being represented. For those seeking more the area is richly steeped in heritage and culture with many major regenerating projects being completed in recent years. You will also discover the beach at Portreath on the nearby North Coast.
