Provincial Town Properties was created and registered as a Limited Company by Douglas Duckworth in 1956. Other notable milestones of the company can be found in our timeline below.
On a south-facing slope overlooking the Gannel Estuary in an area inhabited since the bronze age, nestles Tregunnel Park. Only half a mile from the town centre of Newquay, a resort made famous by the Victorians who appreciated the many miles of sandy beaches, the rugged Cornish coastline, and its milder climate.
The Park situated in a peaceful residential area has permanent planning permission for 58 park homes which due to the terraced nature of the park all enjoy differing views over the tidal estuary of the river Gannel, open countryside on the far side of the estuary and out to sea. There is access to the foreshore from the southern boundary of the Park, and at low tide one can walk down to the sea and sand dunes at Crantock beach and then along the many miles of National Trust's coastal footpath.
One of Cornwall's best kept secrets, Roseveare Park is located in the centre of mid Cornwall a few miles from the A30. Views of the North Cornish coast some ten miles away can be seen from the park and the south coast is about eight miles away.
The park is set in twelve acres of land with permanent planning permission and a site licence issued by Cornwall Council for 29 park homes. Due to the low density the park has larger than average plot sizes which can accommodate large twin park homes and garages.
"When we saw this plot, we knew instantly, after many months of searching, this was where we wanted our home to be. We are both so happy with the result! Great views, area and neighbours..."
J & V, Roseveare
We are so lucky to live here in such a well run park!
J & M, Roseveare
We have lived here at the park, very happily for over 22 years...
B & A, Tregunnel
Both parks are very well located within striking distance of so many places of interest. Tregunnel Park, Newquay is of course on the North Coast and is charmingly located on the estuary and is essentially a town based park. Whereas Roseveare Park, Gothers, Near St Dennis (St Austell) is closer to the South Coast and is more of a rural setting with great views of the north coast 10 or so miles away and fabulous sunsets.
Cornwall remains a very beautiful largely unspoilt county with a moderate climate. Some of the below photos show typical scenes in Newquay, Polzeath, Padstow - the latter made famous by Rick Stein (TV Chef) so much so that many call it Padstein. Of course for those who enjoyed Poldark, Charlestown was used predominantly in its filming and Doc Martin the very popular TV series is based in the very pretty coastal village of Port Isaac, with its own very pretty cove Port Gaverne.
Watergate Bay, together with Mawgan Porth, Fistral Beach, Perranporth, Port Scatho, St Mawes, St Agnes are just a few more beaches/coastal towns along the Cornish coast. St Ives has always been an artists' paradise with its picturesque cottages and dramatic coastal scenery. The list goes on and on…..
