In Cornish, the word ‘Aber’ means ‘mouth of the river’ – and with the unique aspect of the turning of the tide seen from the living room and bedroom, it’s clear that this holiday apartment is most aptly named.

As the early morning sunlight streams into the quiet garden, sit back and relax while looking out across the water – and watch as the boats on the harbour sail to-and-fro, and sailors set about a day on the high seas. Back in 1821, when the beautiful Regency house that the apartment sits within was built for a sea captain of the Packet Ships, Falmouth was quite a different place. The days of heavy industry in Falmouth have passed, and now a gentler scene of sailboats and seabirds plays out upon the water.

Quietly positioned, but close enough to the vibrant atmosphere of Falmouth, Aber View is popular with guests who like to park up and enjoy all the delights of the town on foot. A few minutes’ walk along the river takes you to Falmouth’s Old High Street, and from there this magical harbourside town reveals itself in a flourish of independent shops, restaurants and cafés, and inquisitive little passageways that lead you through to the waterside.

Pick up a picnic from Stones Bakery and head across the water by ferry to the sandy shoreline at Flushing Beach, or along to one of the waterside meadows that line the route to Mylor Harbour. Here you’ll find perfect spots to sit back and take in the scenery while you enjoy a delicious and leisurely lunch. Or you can easily wander to any one of Falmouth’s three sandy beaches for a blissful day of unwinding with nothing but ice cream, swimming, a great book, and plenty of rock pools for entertainment.


Living area
A large light room with sofas (one a sofa bed), coffee table, TV, DVD player, and dining table to seat two with views of the river.

Electric oven, four ring ceramic hob, microwave and fridge with freezer compartment.

A king size bed with pocket sprung mattress, wardrobe with drawers, bedside tables, heated towel rail and views of the river from the large bay window.

Shower, WC and basin.

Beautiful waterfront garden with lawn and plenty of seating, two steamer chairs plus a dining table and two chairs. Enjoy a relaxing breakfast whilst you watch the gentle harbour.

There is an allocated parking space for the property at the rear of the building, although most choose to park at the front.

From the road, there are stone steps up to the pavement. There is then a gate and 3 steps into the garden. The entrance to Aber View is along the right hand garden path. Inside the property there is a small, wide flight of stairs into the living room.

If you decide to use the parking at the rear of the property there is no direct access through to the apartment so you will need to walk around to the front (a 3 minute walk from Penwerris Lane through the church grounds).

Location and Surrounding Area


Aber View is a little piece of heaven on the river, and an ideal base to explore this idyllic corner of Cornwall. From beaches to museums and galleries, a stay in Falmouth offers something for all tastes.

Stroll five minutes along the picturesque waterside and you’ll come to Falmouth’s Old High Street where, as well as Stones Bakery, you’ll find independent antiques and vintage shops, wonderful restaurants, and a host of excellent cafés. Hours can be spent in Falmouth soaking up the unique atmosphere of this town, and a range of events throughout the year ensure the buzz and energy of entertainment is never far away.


The Prince of Wales Pier, situated just at the bottom of the Old High Street, takes you on journeys across the Fal River and beyond. Head over to St Mawes, keeping an eye out for dolphins in the bay as you go, or take a little boat over to Flushing and try and spot Aber View from the other side of the water.

Just a short drive away is the Helford River, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Here the water is pristine, and stunning walks criss-cross the landscape. The area is also home to the famous subtropical gardens of Glendurgan and Trebah, where rare ferns and palm trees nestle in valleys leading down to sandy beaches.

Great, friendly owners and their dog paid us a visit a few times during out stay. Clean and modern amenities in place. 10 minute walk into the centre of Falmouth which is not too far for us.


Many thanks for this wonderful five-star review of our stay at Aber View. It's a pleasure to read that you found the owners to be friendly and the amenities modern. We're happy that you found the Falmouth location to be central and look forward to welcoming you warmly back to Cornwall in the future. Kind regards from the team at Cornish Holiday Cottages.
