Location and Surrounding Area
Sunset gives you the best of both worlds. You’re within walking distance of Falmouth’s wonderful high street and its independent shops and restaurants, and in one of the few spots in town offering that glorious sunset view.
Falmouth has three lovely beaches, and Gyllyngvase, with its award-winning café and restaurant, is the closest. The sandy shores of Swanpool and Maenporth are both nearby, and many secluded coves and pebbly beaches line the nearby Helford River – perfect for wild swimming or unwinding with a good book.
From the apartment, stroll along the waterfront to town, where you can pick up some delicious bread from Stones Bakery, or visit Rick Steins for some must-have fish and chips. Falmouth’s Old High Street offers something to delight everyone, from coffee shops to fashion boutiques – and even a yacht chandlery. A number of award-winning restaurants line the streets and narrow ‘opeways’ of the town, from acclaimed harbour side seafood to hearty traditional pub food, and just about everything in-between.
From the Prince of Wales Pier, hop on a ferry to see St Mawes on the other side of the river, or you can join one of the many sightseeing boat trips to see dolphins or seals from the water.
Tucked away on the edge of town, it’s easy to get out of Falmouth to explore the wider wilds of Cornwall. Follow the road to the North Coast and explore incredible, dramatic scenery and famous beaches like Bedruthan steps. Or visit the Lizard Peninsula for the most southerly point of the UK and the beautiful Kynance Cove. National Trust country houses are plentiful and all just a short drive away, while Eden Project or The Lost Gardens of Heligan can be reached within an hour.
Visit the new award-winning Tate St Ives, or see a show at the open-air Minack Theatre, set into the cliffs at Porthcurno, near Lands End. Closer to home, the Poly in Falmouth always has many varied and captivating events and films, plus plenty of inspiring exhibitions to sate your artistic side.
