Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning new National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by the rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. Go there by car (15 miles) or take the passenger ferry from Falmouth (15 minutes). For nature lovers there is the Swanpool Nature Reserve, a lagoon and SSSI teeming with a variety of wildlife. Falmouth offers such a rich variety of landscape and attractions for people of all ages, it is sure to tempt you back time and again.

The best of the property is that fantastic view and the silence. And it's a perfect starting place for day trips within the beautiful Cornwall.
Mr Polster, Witten, September 2012
Super views of the estuary. The 2nd floor bedroom and en-suite were very nice. Lovely views from the window.
Mr Jones, Taunton, September 2011
View from the house was great. Didn't have to worry about the dogs dirtying the floor as flooring was wooden/tiled.
Good location, close to the town centre. Excellent base for visiting Cornwall. Had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Good showers with plenty of hot water. Made use of the washing machine and tumble dryer.
