LOCATION

Aqua-Firma's offices overlook one of the most inspirational maritime sites in Britain. Charlestown's Tallship harbour is a World Heritage Site, with a beautiful coastline just a few steps from the office doors. To the west we have the picturesque harbour and fishing town of Mevagissey; and to the east lies one of the UK's premier yachting destinations of Fowey. The River Fowey was once rated by Ray Mears as the best place in Britain to go canoeing.  Good diving can be found to the east and west, surfing to the north and great walks can be found throughout the county including the Coastal Path which runs in view of the office.

Of towns, the amenities of St Austell are nearby, Truro lies 25 minutes to the west, Plymouth is about an hour away and Newquay is 1/2 hour away on the opposite coast.  The Eden Project is a mere 3 miles away.
