1 Florence Place is a Regency townhouse on the end of a terrace less than a mile from Falmouth’s beaches and only 600 yards from the vibrant centre of the town.
Rambling over three storeys and with elegant period features, it is a comfortable and stylish house for a beach and town break.
From the hall, head into the big sitting room where you can relax and watch TV, and then through to a dining room.
If you don't feel like eating in the dining room, the well equipped kitchen, with its generous American-style fridge/freezer, modern range-style cooker and walk-in larder, has a handy breakfast table.
Take the stairs up to three airy bedrooms, and then up again to a charming en suite double under the eaves where you can gaze across Falmouth and the sea from an extending dormer window.
Around the house, the attractive garden has an old hot house for storing your surfing and sailing gear and a private enclosed courtyard for eating alfresco.
Stroll into the lively heart of the town to shop, eat out and enjoy a drink at a smart bar or visit the National Maritime Museum for a fascinating glimpse into England’s nautical history.
Don't forget to pack your beach gear too for the choice of beaches for sandcastling and rock pooling.

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 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 site of special scientific interest 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.
