This small, traditional village is lucky to still have a church, a general stores-cum-Post Office and also a pub and there's a real community feel about the place, with a lively carnival in August and a good gathering of folk around the bar and in the beer garden at the Trelowarren Arms.
Beautiful beaches near Budock Water
Stride out from your Budock Water holiday rental and head for the coast. Popular with families, Swanpool Beach is a lovely sandy cove where you can swim, sail or brush up on your kayaking skills. A bouncy castle keeps little faces smiling during the summer months, while the beachside café offers tasty treats and ice-creams. Any birdlife enthusiasts take note that Swanpool Lake (behind the beach) is home to swans, tufted ducks, kingfishers and around 100 other feathered friends. Or try Maenporth Beach, another fantastic sandy bay that's great for swimming, beachcombing and boating.
Walk to the great maritime port of Falmouth - around two miles along the coastal path from our Budock Water holiday lettings. Think sailing, regattas, angling, pleasure cruises - the Duck Tour is great fun - and a stack of water sports. You'll also find restaurants and wine bars, galleries and museums, live music, cinema, aquarium and the National Maritime Museum.
What else? Golf, boating on the Helford River, Pendennis Castle, Glendurgan Garden, Trebah Gardens - and your welcoming holiday home in Budock Water to greet you each night!
