Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and place to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors' lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day are truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events. These events are easily reached on foot as Royal Cornwall Yacht Club is 5 minutes down the road, Falmouth High Street is a 10 minute walk away and Events Square is about 15 minutes by foot.
As a university town many events are arranged by the students including annual exhibitions of art and photographic work. There is a Sainsbury supermarket 2 minutes away by car and a large Asda 5 minutes away.
The beaches at Gyllingvase & Swanpool are coarse sand and are wonderfully sunny south facing spots. You can ride the ferry to beautiful St Mawes for the day or take a delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens or Smugglers Cottage for a cream tea! There are plenty of places to eat & drink in Falmouth and recently Rick Stein has opened his Fish & Chip Restaurant & Oyster Bar at Discovery Quay adding to the superb mix across the town.
Guest from Matlock stayed for 4 nights.
This is a beautiful house with stunning views and you don't even have to get out of bed to see them. The owners have thought of everything. The house itself is in a very peaceful location and yet is only 10 minutes level walk into Falmouth, passing the nearest pub on the way, The Working Boat which is also fabulous and on the sea front. The weather didn't behave itself at all but we were in such a beautiful house we didn't even notice. Thank you for a lovely holiday and the welcome pack

Guest from Northampton stayed for 3 nights.
Some friends and I recently travelled to Falmouth to reminisce on our time together as students living in Falmouth. We chose Midships as accommodation and as soon as we walked through the door we were blown away by the property. Spectacular views of the harbour, plenty of toilets and bath/showrooms and a fantastic living area with doors that lead out to a spacious balcony. Parking was also great. Cornwall cottages and the owners made us feel very welcome and their communication was great. We are looking forward to a longer stay at Midships next year as 3 nights wasn't enough, value for money is amazing. We can't recommend this place enough. Seeing is believing.
Guest from Coventry stayed for 7 nights.
I cannot find enough superlatives to describe Midships - We had a fantastic stay at this property. Its on a lovely new development, Midships is one of four river front properties. From the moment we arrived on the drive, there was a massive wow factor, the property is very attractive. The interior design is unfussy and of the highest quality, and obviously a huge amount of thought has gone into the décor and furnishings. There are great view from the two balconies of the river and marina. Every detail has been thought of and we had a very comfortable and relaxing stay. This property is definitely a fantasy home by the sea! We would recommend a stay at Midships without reservation.
Guest from Glastonbury stayed for 4 nights.
We stayed here for four nights but wished we could have been there longer. The house has lovely views from the living room and main bedroom and is really well equipped. Spotlessley clean with lovely bedding and towels, it is a real treat. The Cornish cream tea that awaited us was a bonus and very welcome. You won't be disappointed.
Guest from Stourbridge stayed for 7 nights.
From the moment we arrived at Midships we were enchanted with the property and location.The view over the river was gorgeous and sitting on the balcony listening to the sounds from the river and boats was so relaxing. The house is modern and luxurious, it is brand new and the interior design is fabulous. From the bed linens, towels and all of the soft furnishings every detail has been well thought out. We had a cream tea waiting for us from Cornwall's Cottages and they also provided tea,coffee,sugar and milk which was much appreciated. I can't praise this property enough as every room has the " wow " factor from the open plan lounge/kitchen to the sublime master bedroom and bathroom. The property has 3 parking spaces so we often walked into Falmouth town centre to dine or use the ferry service to St Mawes, it is a comfortable 15 minute walk with the river on your left and a raised footpath right on to the high street. This stay has been a huge success and will use this company again.
Guest from Peterborough stayed for 7 nights.
We had the pleasure of staying at midships for a weeks family holiday, 2 adults, 2 children. The accommodation is actually even better than in the photos, they really do not do this property justice. Everything from the quality linens and towels to the sumptuous furnishings make this property an absolute pleasure to stay in. We were welcomed with a lovely cream tea and a hospitality tray with goodies that got our holiday off to a great start. The views from the balconies are just amazing, as are the sunsets. There is a working boatyard to one side of the view which had occasional noise but certainly did not affect our enjoyment of the property. Falmouth is a wonderful area with lots to do, lovely places to eat, drink and shop and i'd love to return again soon!
This is a great location with wonderful views across the river to Flushing and a superb master bedroom with Juliet balcony which really makes the best of the magnificent view, it is a short walk into the vibrant, bustling port of Falmouth which has a wealth of great restaurants, traditional pubs and a huge variety of shops.
