There are fabulous views from the rooftop terrace of this lovely waterside apartment, from Penryn in the north across to the riverside village of Flushing and on to the Roseland peninsula beyond. Located on the second floor of the renowned Admiral's Quay development and close to the centre of Falmouth, Tall Ships is a wonderful base from which to explore the town's bars, restaurants, shops and beaches. Furnished and decorated to an extremely high standard, the apartment makes the most of the views with a Juliet balcony in the large sitting-room looking over a sheltered courtyard to the water beyond and the kitchen window looking towards the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club. A spiral staircase leads up to the perfect chill-out space – a glass-fronted sun-lounge and the rooftop terrace, with panoramic views all-round.
Tall Ships offers wonderfully comfortable accommodation for families and couples alike, with a large, bright sitting/dining-room furnished to an impeccable standard and providing space for everyone to stretch out and relax. There is a dining-area, a huge corner sofa and a 49 inch Smart TV so you can cosy up and watch a good film in winter months (although storm watching from the warmth and comfort of this centrally-heated, double glazed apartment is equally enjoyable!). The kitchen/breakfast-room is fully equipped with everything provided for easy catering but with a multitude of dining opportunities in Falmouth town centre just a short walk away, eating out is always an attractive option. A spiral staircase leads up to the sun-room, a ssecond sitting-area with a large sofa, second TV and patio doors out to the sun terrace. The master bedroom has an en suite shower-room with a walk-in shower, while the twin bedroom has use of the limestone-tiled family bathroom. It is a short stroll down to the shops and to the Prince of Wales Pier, where ferries run to the Cathedral City of Truro, Flushing, St Mawes and along the Helford river. With several beautiful National Trust gardens and sandy beaches within a short distance and the north coast surfing beaches and the Eden Project an easy drive away, Tall Ships is the perfect base for a wonderful holiday at any time of year. Please note that due to the number of steps, this property may not be suitable for those with limited mobility.
