Immerse yourself in the bijou garden with a good book, a glass of something cold and a few Nocellara olives. Breakfast is sure to be particularly sunny in this spot. Pop a few doors down to the artisan bakery, ‘Stones‘ and grab a loaf of their renowned sourdough and slather with Cornish butter and raspberry jam. Holidays are made for long, indulgent meal times.
Falmouth’s old High Street has long been a creative hub by day, with artist studios, designers, and makers selling their services and wares. The Old Brewery Yard, once a stable block, oozes charm and is a real social space, for daytime eating and late night beverages.

There is parking in a secure parking complex, approx 200m away for a small – medium sized car.

We suggest you get a weekly ticket for the Quarry Hill car park in this instance.
Location and Surrounding Area
Amidst the buzz and bustle of Falmouth’s famous Old High Street, a colourful passageway lined with independent shops, café’s and more than a few hidden surprises, you’ll discover Makers Loft.
Find inspiration from local artists and makers in the galleries and gift shops, this street is lined with creativity. You’ll find it right beneath your feet at Inspire Makers downstairs.
Wander around the corner to Old Brewery Yard, a cobbled courtyard filled with colour. Here, a restaurant and laid back bar offer alfresco tables and live music.
Opposite the flat, an old Cornish ‘opeway’ offers a glimpse of Falmouth Harbour, your taste of what’s to come on the water. Falmouth Harbour is dotted with boats and you’ll find it easy to get out onto the water and explore. From the bottom of the Old High Street ferries can be caught over to St Mawes, of upriver to the Cathedral city of Truro.
For beaches, Falmouth has three. Blue Flag Gyllyngvase, rockpool-laden Castle Beach and Swanpool with white sand and great ice cream. Take your pick from a local favourite or head out to one of the famously rugged expanses of sand on the North Coast – most are within a 45-minute drive.
You’ll be well-fed with a stay here, with plenty of restaurants to explore. Local produce is abundant in this part of Cornwall, so pick up some fresh seafood straight from the boat and cook up a storm.
Award-winning gardens are close by too. Wander through gunnera at Trebah, recently voted one of Britain’s top ten gardens by Vogue magazine.
