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.
A short drive away is the Helford River. This delightful part of Cornwall includes places such as Mawnan Smith, Helford Passage, Constantine & Gweek. The area has many delights such as Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, The Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, Goonhilly Earth and Satellite Station and The Ferry Boat Inn. Daphne du Maurier wrote her only romantic novel Frenchmans Creek about the River Helford, and who can blame her, the views really are beautiful. Glendurgan Gardens, run by the National Trust, hold a 176 year old laurel maze and the 'Giants Stride' swing is very popular with children. St Anthony-in-Meneage holds a lovely little church primarily of medieval architecture. Maenporth beach, tucked away on the westerly edge of Falmouth Bay and boasting spectacular views, is well worth a visit.

Dear Mrs Hillsdon, My name is Jo Russell and I am the owner of 12 Riverview in Falmouth. We live overseas and our cottage is managed by our housekeeping service. I was so sad to see that you were not satisfied with the standard of cleanliness in one of the bathrooms of the cottage as we pride ourselves on having a high standard. Unfortunately our housekeeper was away for the period of your booking and we had a temporary cleaner. I just wanted to inform you that the matter has been acted upon and she will not be cleaning for us again. I do hope this didn't spoil your stay in beautiful Falmouth and that you had a lovely holiday. With our best wishes, Jo and Tom Russell. Sent from my iPad
Guest from London stayed for 4 nights.
beautiful house, really lovely place to stay. The only thing I would say that needs attention is that I pulled up some of the bind weed in the front garden - someone should dig it up properly, all the new little plants were getting choked. Unless it is looked after the lovely things someone has planted will die. Please consider putting a new cafe/restaurant in Falmouth in your notes for people renting the house. It is The Kitchen, Cobbled Yard, Falmouth, fabulous food, really nice ambiance, relaxed and inexpensive. You can also sit outside in the quiet cobbled yard in the sun. Ten minutes walk from the house.
