Location and Surrounding Area
A stone’s throw from Swanpool Beach, where Elemental offer adventures of all sorts on the water. Bring a kayak and wheel it down to launch straight from the beach, or hire by the hour/day. Swanpool is idyllic for swimming and has facilities including the renowned Swanpool Cafe and its decadent ice-creams. There’s even crazy golf for kids behind the beach or a real golf course for the grown-ups at Falmouth Golf Course.
The Blue Flag Gyllyngvase Beach with its safe RNLI lifeguarded swimming waters lies just a ten minute stroll east along the coast path. Head west via a wooded passage to the clifftops with views over Falmouth Bay. Follow this path along to tucked-away Maenporth Beach and further still to the Helford River.
Bryozoa House is named for the trembling sea mat- animals called Bryozoa which live in the waters of Swanpool and thrive in the mix of fresh and seawater. More commonly found in the Mediterranean, Swanpool is the only place in Britain where these can be found and is why the land the house looks out upon is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest. Although invisible to the naked eye, there’s plenty of other wildlife to be spotted from the balcony – from swans serenely crossing the pool to cormorants ducking and diving all day long.
Your closest joint just happens to serve some of the best seafood around – Hooked on the Rocks is a short stroll away and has a terrace for alfresco dining with arguably the best sea view in Falmouth. With an abundance of independent restaurants and bars, all of which are accessible via car or a quick walk along the coastal path to Gyllyngvase Beach, Falmouth is most definitely a town for foodies.
