7 Nights from £295

A stylish and cosy apartment with views towards the sea at Swanpool beach tucked away on the outskirts of Falmouth. The beach and nature reserve are just a short stroll through grassy playing fields and quiet lanes, here you will find a beach cafe and waterfront bistro which provide delicious treats and lovely meals. There is also water sport hire and tuition if you are feeling adventurous.

Compact but perfectly equipped, Bay Retreat has an open plan living space which opens to a sunny conservatory where you can sit and enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine looking out to sea. The doors from the conservatory open to a small patio at the front of the property which is a real sun-trap.

The bedroom is at the back of the property, it has an en suite shower-room with double walk-in shower, perfect after days exploring the sandy beaches, Cornish gardens and coastal footpaths near and far.

Bay Retreat is a fully self-contained ground floor annexe adjoining, but set back from, the owners' home in a quiet cul-de-sac on the edge of Falmouth. There is private parking right outside and level access into the apartment.

Access into the bustling maritime town is quick and easy, where there are plenty of eclectic shops, art galleries, restaurants and waterside cafes to explore. Walkers can be on the coastal footpath in minutes, heading towards Falmouth and Pendennis Head in one direction or the Helford River and Lizard peninsula in the other. Perhaps try your hand at paddle boarding or kayaking from Swanpool beach and explore the hidden coves and tidal creeks. There are beautiful gardens at Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick nearby, with The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project a little further afield.

There is covered storage for bikes and surfboards at Bay Retreat, and the surfing beaches of the north coast are just a 20 minute drive away. A well-behaved small to medium sized dog is welcome.
