With an abundance of natural light filtering through the vast windows, Polltreth has masses of the feel-good factor. The generous L shaped living space opens onto the well-equipped patio and just beyond is the outdoor swimming pool, (14m x 6m unheated).

Swanpool Beach is just a five-minute stroll around Swanpool Lake and Nature Reserve. The beach cafe, famous for its decadent ice creams, is open all year round and is situated next to Elemental Watersports centre, so if dawn paddles are your thing, or you fancy trying your hand at sailing, windsurfing or coasteering then give them a call. Hooked on the Rocks, occupies what has to be Falmouth’s best restaurant location, perched on the edge of the rocks overlooking Falmouth Bay.
Polltreth is a well established holiday home, (formerly known as Six Jays Apartment). The comfortable interior offers lots of space for a couple and has the flexibility of an additional single bed in the bedroom or a folding Z bed that can be put up elsewhere.
The welcoming owners, who live in the main house and their three lovely dogs, are on hand should you need anything – however with an apartment as well equipped as this, we doubt you will.
Polltreth with its close proximity to the beach, lake and just a fifteen-minute stroll into Falmouth town, is a fantastic base for your south Cornish holiday. Coast path exploration, the sea, fine dining, interesting shops, art galleries and entertainment is yours to behold. And Polltreth is the perfect place to retire to at the end of your fun-packed day.

Location and Surrounding Area


From here the coastal path network awaits you. Head east for Gyllyngvase Beach and the popular Gylly cafe, or west for Maenporth, Mawnan Shear and the beautiful Helford River. Pack a picnic and choose your perfect, alfresco spot for lunch, or stop off in one of the many waterside pubs and enjoy some delicacies.

Every Tuesday you will find a Farmer’s Market on The Moor in Falmouth town centre, so stock up on organic meats, local fish and delicious vegetables. Stones Bakery is where you will find the best sourdough and the most delicious pastries. For the best coffee in town, pull up a pew in Espressini. Thereafter you will enjoy a mooch around the town’s many excellent delis, art and gift shops. There are two cinemas in Falmouth, The Phoenix for the Hollywood greats and The Poly for world and arthouse cinema.

From Falmouth to the North coast of Cornwall, is just 30 minutes by car if you head to Portreath, so keep checking that weather forecast for where the sun shines brightest. The pretty artist’s town of St Ives is a 45 drive away, Penzance 55 and St Austell and the Eden Project 40 minutes.

Lovely apartment with all you would need for a break away, very clean and tidy, the welcome pack was the best I had ever received. Jean and John were excellent hosts, always on hand if needed. It was also in a quiet area but easy to walk to the beach (5 mins max) or into the town.


Many thanks for your glowing five-star review of your recent stay at Polltreth. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed the property, the welcome back and the quiet location. We are so pleased that you had an excellent experience with Jean and John and that you were able to visit the local beaches and town. Kind regards from all of us at Cornish Holiday Cottages.
