Falmouth Cottages

When booking a Falmouth holiday cottage you won't be disappointed with this maritime treat. The location is stunning, with winding streets and terraced roads of shops, cafes, bars and cottages. All this, snuggled between the palm fronted beaches along Falmouth Bay and its famous harbour, overlooked and protected by Pendennis Castle and its sister castle over the river at St Mawes. Enjoy the view from our Falmouth Webcam.Read more

You can leave your car at the holiday cottage as everything is on your doorstep and there are plenty of things to do. Or, take the river taxis up to Truro or across to St Mawes and spend time exploring another part of Cornwall. Falmouth is well placed for discovering all of west Cornwall.

Falmouth's maritime history is unique. Having the third deepest natural harbour in the world, it became the centre of the postal network to the British Empire and the first place news was landed before spreading across the land. It is now often the start or finish point of various ‘round the world' record breaking voyages and the Tall Ship's race, one not to be missed. Today Falmouth is home to the National Maritime Museum, which is well worth a visit, as well as a plethora of watersport facilities. Holidays can easily be spent sailing, fishing or diving in the bay or up the river.

A Falmouth holiday could not be complete without visiting at least one of the many galleries. Falmouth Art School was founded there in 1902 and many of the students have never left, resulting in a vibrant art scene. Much of it is inspired by the locale, the scenery is inspirational and the way of life allows for many a story to be told through creative means. Pick up a Cornish memento to take back with you and provoke happy memories for years to come.

Being on the coast, there is a family friendly shoreline to enjoy. All four beaches; Castle, Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and Maenporth, are sandy and sheltered from the swells and prevailing wind, perfect for a family holiday in Falmouth. They also have rock pools at low tide for the kids (and dads) to explore to their heart's content when they've finished building sandcastles and eating icecreams.

If you're staying in one of our dog friendly Falmouth cottages you will be spoilt for choice as you are never too far from a rural walk. From the coast path with its panoramic sea views to the many footpaths criss-crossing the surrounding countryside… take your pick!
