Falmouth is well known for its picturesque natural harbour, hidden creeks and sandy beaches. Walkers and dog owners love the quiet, undulating coast path with far reaching views out to sea. For the more adventurous, there are fishing trips or sea safaris from the pier or perhaps a ferry over the water to discover the delights of St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsula. Enjoy dining in one of the many restaurants, cafes and pubs or explore the winding streets of town with an eclectic assortment of boutiques, craft shops and galleries.

The Old Coastguard Station
With views overlooking Falmouth bay and beyond and the beach just a stones throw away, this property is a great base for either a family of four or the perfect romantic getaway for two. With two outside spaces it has the best of both worlds with a sheltered courtyard surrounded by tropical plants or a patio at the front with a fabulous outlook. Sit back, listen to the calming sound of the sea and enjoy a well-deserved break here.
This beautiful semi-detached Victorian cottage offers the best of both worlds, sitting in the beautifully landscaped grounds of a private estate, just outside the pretty waterside village of Flushing with two fabulous pubs and a waterside café. You can enjoy the peace and quiet of your very own sheltered courtyard garden then hop aboard the foot ferry and head to the cosmopolitan town of Falmouth. Suitable for up to five guests and a baby, this truly is a wonderful place to stay.
This Victorian townhouse certainly has the “wow” factor, with panoramic views of the harbour where you can sit all day and watch the sailing world go by. Situated a short walk from the centre of the bustling town, you’ll find plenty of space for six guests plus two babies; perfect any time of year, with a wood burner to keep you cosy in winter and a patio for al fresco dining in the balmy days of summer.
We guarantee it will be hard to drag yourself away from the panoramic views across the bay to Flushing and the Roseland peninsula. Watch the yachts chase around the harbour or the ferry take passengers from the nearby pier to St Mawes, Truro and the Helford River. If you do manage tear yourself away from the sunny terrace, the delights of Falmouth are waiting to be discovered only moments from your front door.
If you dream of marine life then this stunning apartment is the perfect place for you. Located in the prestigious Challenger Quay development, Falmouth’s historic dockyard, National Maritime Museum and Events Square with a great selection of cafes, restaurants and bars, are right on your doorstep. With all the other fabulous amenities of Falmouth a level walk away and the beaches of Swanpool and Maenporth along the coast path, Pebbles is sure to delight.
