Property Location

Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and places to eat. Falmouth has a buzzing town centre filled with shops, restaurants and waterside attractions and is the sailing capital of Cornwall. It is renowned for being the third-largest natural harbour in the world. It’s a haven for both cruisers and racers, offering the sailor the last major port before the 12-hour crossing to the Isles of Scilly. Visitors to the Port will find the town teeming with coastal treasures, ranging from fish restaurants and boat trips to The National Maritime Museum, next to Port Pendennis. Henry VIII built Pendennis Castle in the 16th Century and it sits high above the harbour with truly magical panoramic views across the bay. You can ride one of the Fal River Link Ferries to the beautiful St Mawes and visit Pendennis' sister castle, or take a delightful trip around the estuary, stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens, Malpas or Truro. Falmouth Regatta Week is the town's major event both on and off the water. Fireworks and sometimes the Red Arrows provides a spectacular backdrop for some high-class racing. Later in the year, the Oyster Festival shows off the river’s heritage to the full. Falmouth also hosts the annual Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival. There are plenty of places to eat and drink in Falmouth and Rick Stein has his restaurant on 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 Falmouth Bay's westerly edge and boasting spectacular views, is well worth a visit.
