You’ll feel like a hero or heroine in your very own fairy story as you mount the stairs of Truro’s Victorian Water Tower.
Truro’s romantic Victorian Water Tower is a holiday cottage with a twist – literally. With its turret and distinctive round rooms, this romantic fairytale-style tower looks like it’s straight out of Rapunzel, but was actually built in about 1865 to serve as a reservoir for Trelissick House.
The tower has a topsy-turvy layout, with the bedroom on the first floor, living room on the second and kitchen at the top, all linked by a spiral staircase. The tower shares a private garden with the Engine House and is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Falmouth and Truro are nearby and you can use the hop-on, hop-off ferries to reach them by river, as well as exploring the stunning surrounding countryside.
