Resident at Leonard Cheshire

St Teresa’s

In the peaceful outskirts of Penzance in Cornwall, St Teresa’s is a single storey home for 27 adults with physical disabilities. Overlooking Mount’s Bay, our home is surrounded by beautiful views of Mousehole, Newlyn and Penzance. Shops, restaurants, cafes, a cinema and a theatre are all nearby, and we’re also a short walk from the historic town of Marazion, with its clean and sandy beaches.
