The village is surrounded by stunning woodland walks, and the valley is bisected by a beautiful stream that burbles down towards Maenporth. A twenty-minute walk down the tranquil valley from Pendra Loweth will bring you to the golden sands of Maenporth Beach where you will find a superb beach cafe and the fabulous Cove Restaurant which has just been acquired by Michael Caines. Falmouth is a short drive away, and here you can enjoy the wealth of fine restaurants and thriving pubs that this vibrant town has to offer. Explore the town from Prince of Wales Pier and Custom House Quay to Events Square, where the Falmouth Oyster Festival and the shore-side activities for Falmouth Week are based, and the National Maritime Museum. There are regular ferries from the Prince of Wales Pier and Custom House Quay that are well worth a day trip, with destinations such as the beautiful St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsula or further up the River Fal to Trelissick Gardens, Malpas or Truro.

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. 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 a 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.
The beaches at Maenporth, Gyllyngvase & 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, Malpas or Truro. 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. Michael Caines has just purchased the wonderful Cove Restaurant where you can soak up the atmosphere, enjoy a fine meal and marvel at the fabulous views across the beach and Falmouth Bay towards St Anthonys Lighthouse.
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. The Lizard Lighthouse is mainland Brittain's most southerly point and a truly majestic, especially if it is windy. Kynance cove is truly amazing in fine weather, Coverack, Cadgwith and Porthleven are also well worth a visit.
There is a large Asda on the outskirts of Penryn, a Sainsbury's in Falmouth and a very handy Co-op located in Boslowick Road, just a few minutes away.

FantasticReviewed on 08/07/2021
Cannot fault this place at all from the cost which was fab, the cleanliness of the house was superb and all the information was covered regarding your stay within the house. I must also say receiving a personal email from Janet about the essentials like water tank info etc was brilliant. The location was fab only a 5-10 minutes drive into Falmouth itself and a 2 minute drive from the fab maenporth beach made it even better! Would absolutely recommend, comfortably accommodated us as a family of 6!
