How many holiday apartments offer the chance of falling asleep with a Royal Navy vessel moored almost alongside then waking with a luxury cruise liner in its place? Add views from the terrace over a multitude of yachts in the inner marina at Port Pendennis, and there is always something to watch on the water! Pebbles is a beautifully appointed third floor apartment in the prestigious Challenger Quay development, a contemporary security-gated complex next to Falmouth’s historic dockyard, National Maritime Museum and Events Square. High ceilings, quality furnishings and lovely artwork add to the apartment’s welcoming ambience. A lift is available but its operation cannot be guaranteed so for safety purposes guests must be able to access the third floor on foot.
The town’s shops, restaurants and bars are all within a level walk of Challenger Quay, with Events Square hosting great activities like the Cider and Folk Fair, Fal Fish Festival and the Oyster Festival. Gyllyngvase beach, with the popular Gylly Beach Cafe, is a short walk away with the coastal footpath passing right along the seafront and on towards Swanpool and Maenporth beaches and the Lizard peninsula beyond. There are wonderful sub-tropical gardens to explore at Glendurgan and Trebah just five miles away, so this is the perfect location for those who like to get out and explore the coastline and countryside, then return to guaranteed comfort and the convenience of the town’s amenities a short stroll away.
