THE LOCATION As its name suggests, Glasney Place sits on or near the site of the ancient and historic former Glasney College - which was built in the 1200's and predates Falmouth.
Glasney Place lies about half a mile from Penryn town and one and a half miles from Falmouth, in a convenient spot, just a few hundred yards from the river and just a few paces from Glasney playing field and the valley with lovey streamside walks on one's doorstep.
Penryn is a historic and ancient market town with an active community and excellent everyday facilities including a nursery, primary and secondary schools. The town enjoys good communication with Falmouth via its bus service and train station, which links to Truro city and mainline Paddington. Penryn is enjoying something of a renaissance witnessed in the regeneration and development of Penryn's inner Harbour area providing riverside accommodation and extensive and exciting dining options. Penryn Campus is occupied by both Falmouth and Exeter Universities sharing buildings, facilities and services as part of the combined universities in Cornwall project; this recent transition into a University town is creating a real 'buzz' for the area. Falmouth town provides comprehensive shopping, schooling, business and leisure facilities and was recently voted 'the best place to live in the South West' in the prestigious Sunday Times guide.
