Cornwall's exclusive country garden
Cosawes Park is set in a beautiful 115 acre wooded valley and situated between the Cathedral City of Truro and the picturesque harbourside town of Falmouth. Now being managed on behalf of the third generation of the Fraser family, we have over 60 years’ experience of providing a safe, relaxing and comfortable setting for those approaching, or having reached their retirement. To ensure peace and quiet we do not allow resident children or dogs, although of course children, grandchildren and extended family pets are permitted to visit.
Our wooded valley has been sympathetically developed over the years to preserve the natural environment. This has been recognised by many David Bellamy awards for environmental protection since 2012 and 2006 saw our residents nominate us for 'Park Owner of the Year' which was subsequently awarded.
The roads are lit at night and a warden or member of staff is always on hand for general advice, or to assist in emergencies. CCTV constantly records our main vehicular entrances and reception areas. Further confidence is gained knowing that almost all of our team live on site.
A once-daily shopper bus connects Cosawes to Truro. The main service is a ten minute walk from the park and runs to both Truro and Falmouth every thirty minutes. All supermarkets and many private specialist grocery supply companies deliver to you door.
Whatever your reason for choosing a park home or this particularly convenient and beautiful part of Cornwall, you are sure to appreciate the reasonable cost of living and huge lifestyle benefits of making your home within Cosawes community. Cosawes benefits from a residents association that works to support the approxiamtely 175 people who make Cosawes their home.
Together we try to keep Cosawes a tranquil and attractive place to live. We are responsible for the upkeep of the communal grounds and safe supply of mains services to our residents. We can offer gardening, building and odd-jobs. Residents may ask us for advice, a quote or, in the event we are too busy or beyond the budget, we have a list of other recommended traders that have been entirely recommended by our existing home owners. You are of course free to choose your own contractor, we just ask that you run any significant work or additions to the home or garden past us first to ensure your ideas comply with planning, health and safety, or fire specifications
Ros & Ian Fraser... brothers and company directors, Ros and Ian have grown up at Cosawes after their parents bought the land in 1949. Their company was set up in 1960 and although now retired from the day to day management, are still very much active in the company.
Colin... works full time on just about anything and everything and is the day to day operations manager for Ros and Ian. Most likely he'll be in the office these days but started off as the Park Warden almost thirty years ago and is a veritable font of Park knowledge.
Steve... has worked for us over a number of years. Initially he was a self-employed contractor but came on board as our head of maintenance with a remit over the other outside team keeping everything running smoothly and looking tickety-boo
Cy...is our most recent addition to the maintenance team having previously worked as a landscaper, gardener and even a paramedic assistant and joined us from the Tregothnan Estate.
Adrian... shares our warden role with spouse Edwina. Together they keep the campsite grounds looking immaculate and meet and greet all Cosawes' happy campers! During the week you may also see him playing a big supportive role with the maintenance team and looking after our vehicles and equipment.
Edwina... the dream cleaning team leader! If you want to know how Cosawes consistently achieves five star reviews, look no further! Aside from looking after the facilities you'll also see Edwina helping some residents domestically and adding her green-fingered touch to the grounds.
Shaun... is a part-time groundsman on the team that has worked for Cosawes over many years now. He's also now a mature student attending college for a change of career.
Jenny... works in support of Colin in the office two or three days a week and covers his holidays. She grew up on her father's holiday park in North Devon and therefore has an extensive knowledge of Park operation.
Frank & Sue... are fairly recent additions to the team and work with Adrian and Edwina in keeping our campsite facilities spotless and worthy of their award winning status.
