The ultimate coastal retreat set moments from the sparkling sea and pristine sands of Gyllyngvase beach. Let the gentle morning call of seabirds rouse you before dawn, in time for almost ethereal dips or sunrise yoga on the beach. Discover new underwater worlds in Castle Beach’s well-known rock pools and end the day with a sundowner picnic at Pendennis Point. Thoroughly revitalised, return to your bolthole to wash off salty skin using the al fresco patio shower. 

Just a ten-minute stroll from Falmouth town – you may not end up cooking much, as there are a plethora of great restaurants, cafes, and bakers. 

Arriving at Gylly, as you pass through the sun-trap front garden and through the front door, the house opens up into a generous continuum of lovely rooms.

Decorated in subtle colours and organic features, with beautiful original details, some standout vintage pieces and many collected books and local artworks, Gylly’s living spaces are sophisticated, welcoming, and charming.

Awash with daylight from their wall-length windows, focal rooms such as the fabulous kitchen/diner and luminous main bedroom, invite guests to spread out and relax into easy living, in an environment designed with intention. The attic room with its skylights and sea views that reach out to the horizon, make an idyllic base for those cosy nights in.

The contemporary kitchen/diner comes complete with all of the amenities required for a substantial self-catering stay and expands luxuriously to leave space for a large dining table and adjacent sofa. Throw open the french doors to let the outside in and bring your home-cooked lunch out onto the patio for a feast in the sunshine. 

This self-catering beach house serves up equal measures of style and comfort, while its Falmouth beach location is the icing on the cake.

Location and Surrounding Area


Foodies will not be disappointed with the host of eateries at their fingertips. From divine fish suppers served with a seaview at Hooked on the Rocks, and sweet cream teas with fresh strawberries at Dolly’s Tea Room, to seasonal, creative menus presented with flair at distinguished Restaurant Mine. 

Clamber onto your feet with a brave wobble and stand tall above the water as you gaze back towards the shoreline and embrace a new way to explore the Cornish coast. For SUP fanatics, this has to be one of the best places to stay for paddleboarding in Cornwall. Take a 2-hour kayak adventure to discover hidden caves, hidden reefs and historic shipwrecks. Stroll to Swanpool Beach for their famous clotted cream ice creams and on to Maenporth, a  sandy cove perfect for swimming.

The Helford River remains one of Cornwall’s unspoilt corners and has something special for everyone, whether you’re seeking active days exploring the creeks or enjoying the calmer pace of life within its subtropical gardens and collection of hidden coves. 

Further afield, the rugged Lizard coastline awaits and the north coast surf beckons to be ridden. Crabbing in St Mawes, wildlife watching on sea safaris and evening beach barbecues will provide families and friends with memories they will cherish forever.
