Settled on the residential hills above Falmouth town, this magnificent dog-friendly retreat is the best of both worlds – the hubbub of an electric coastal town and the serenity of the sea.
Bora Gwel is a stone’s throw away from the ocean and the independent shops, outstanding eateries and creative atmosphere of its working Cornwall town. Whether your days are spent exploring the winding streets of Falmouth and neighbouring towns, journeying on passenger ferries across the water or wandering the coastal paths, rest and calm are assured at this unforgettable self-catering townhouse.
Blue for the waves which lap the local sands, green for the subtropical plants which grow gorgeously in the southerly gardens, and woody brown for the ships that grace the harbour waters, Bora Gwel’s interior tones reflect Cornwall’s beckoning landscape.
Patter along the floorboard hallway to explore the downstairs bedrooms and light-filled garden room, before heading upstairs to the handsome sitting room, well-equipped kitchen, first-floor bedroom and dual-aspect loft bedroom, which boasts panoramic views over the harbour to Pendennis Castle.
When the winter storms roll in or the summer sun shines a light on the Fal River, set up camp on the sitting room’s fine sofas and watch the day unfold. Enjoy a morning coffee overlooking the garden from the open-plan kitchen/diner coloured grey-blue.
Sheltered from the coastal winds, the tiered, sun-trap garden was made with al fresco meals and sun-soaking in mind. Take a stroll to the top of the lawn to glimpse sights of the distant sea and soaring seabirds, before returning to the wooden deck to sip cocktails around the outdoor rattan dining table.
With so much to enjoy, Bora Gwel is the true definition of a charming coastal home, where magic is guaranteed.
