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.
