With a tall bay window looking down to the Haven Marina and Falmouth Docks beyond, there is plenty to see from this spacious apartment, one of just four in a large converted Victorian house. There are original features like sash windows, stylish touches of metro tiling, and a bath with a Victorian drench head shower over. There is a little garden to the front, a lovely place to sit with an early evening glass of wine while yachts and dinghies meander back to their moorings in the marina below. Once the sun has set, wander down to the bustling centre of Falmouth where there is a wonderful variety of restaurants, bars, shops and galleries to explore (but remember the walk back is uphill!).
Blue Haven is tucked away from the bustle of the town below but close enough for all its delights to be accessible on foot. Facing southeast, the high ceilings and tall windows allow plenty of sunlight to flood in to the sitting/dining-room; a light, bright space with a wool-covered sofa, a relaxing easy chair and a vintage scrubbed pine table and chairs set before the bay window to make the best of the views. The bedroom has plenty of storage space, with views over rooftops to the marina below. The bathroom is lovely, with a bath to relax in after a day exploring the nearby coast and a drenching shower to freshen you up before the next day's adventures begin. The galley-kitchen is small but well-equipped, with a great coffee machine for that oh-so-important morning shot of caffeine. There is a parking space right beside the apartment, a rarity in Falmouth, and a five minute walk brings you to Arwenack Street, home to many different eating places and a wonderful variety of independent shops. Access to the coastal footpath is easy, with a lovely walk around Pendennis Head – an isthmus of land pointing out into Falmouth Bay – made special by the wonderful views across Falmouth Bay. With renowned beach cafes and waterside bistros and restaurants at Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and Maenporth, you'll be spoilt for choice for an al fresco lunch (a great reward for donning walking boots and meandering along the coastal footpath!). Several wonderful Cornish gardens are nearby, with Glendurgan and Trebah in the Helford valley and Trelissick on the River Fal, next to the King Harry Ferry which crosses to the beautiful Roseland peninsula. In town, ferries sail from the Prince of Wales Pier to Flushing, Truro, St Mawes and the Helford River, while the magnificent cliffs and surfing beaches of the north coast are just half an hour away by car.
