A stylish and cosy apartment with views towards the sea at Swanpool beach on the outskirts of Falmouth. A short stroll through grassy playing fields and quiet lanes brings you to the beach and nature reserve, where a beach cafe and waterfront bistro provide delicious treats and water sport tuition if you are feeling adventurous.
Compact but perfectly equipped; Bay Retreat has an open plan living-room which opens to a sunny conservatory where you can sit and enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. The bedroom 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.

Bay Retreat is a ground floor apartment, for 2021 the owners are building a conservatory over the patio so there will be no outside space - the apartment is semi-detached from the owners' home.
The little kitchen-area is well-equipped.
The sitting-area opens on to the conservatory. (photo to follow)
