Property Brochure PDF Location Map


The subject ‘premises’ is actually a boat which is named ‘Compton Castle’. ‘The boat’ is moored on Compton Quay at the head of Lemon Quay adjoining Craftworks Street Kitchen.


Located at the head of Lemon Quay, which is arguably one of Truro’s most desirable retail pitches, the boat resides in the River Kenywn at the point it emerges from Lemon Quay. At this point the river is tidal so the view from the boat (and the view from it) is ever changing. The premises are adjacent to Marks and Spencer and nearby occupiers are Debenhams, Cotswold, JD Sports Wetherspoon and Primark.
