Location and Surrounding Area
The River Fal and the nearby Helford River are well famed for their safe and sheltered waters. A haven for wildlife and tranquility the area is just as lovely to explore on foot, as to hire a little motor boat and bob about on the water for a day or so.
Falmouth has all you need, in terms of great food providers, shopping and entertainment, but should you want to explore further afield then there are great transport links across Cornwall with a mainline train station in Truro and various branchlines across the county, including three different stops in Falmouth. The closest to Sailor’s Rest, (by taxi if you have luggage) is ‘Penmere Platform’, or a walk through the town centre leads you to ‘Falmouth Town’.
Cornwall has over 400 miles of coastline, so there’s much to explore. The Lizard, the UK’s most southerly point is rugged and dramatic and just a 40 minute drive away. Over on the north coast, you will find beautiful long sandy beaches, such as Perranporth and Gwithian.
