Truthall Manor is a significant Cornish building that is thought to have been built in at least three phases: late 15th Century, late 16th Century and mid-17th Century. It was then partly rebuilt and extended in the late 19th Century.

On the ground floor are found two splendid formal reception rooms, an impressive staircase hall, study, kitchen/breakfast room and further ancillary rooms. Rising to the first floor is a magnificent turning staircase that leads onto the galleried landing, off which the six bedrooms (three en-suite) radiate.HISTORIC OUTBUILDINGS
To the rear of the main residence and enclosing two sides of a cobbled courtyard, is the range of significantly older buildings, part of which is believed to have been a medieval hall. The majority of these outbuildings are in an uninhabitable state and require remedial work.LISTED BUILDING STATUS
