Tehidy House, an elegant Georgian townhouse, resides on the banks of Falmouth harbour overlooking the Carrick Roads and Penryn River. Owned by a former Packet Ship Captain this stunning holiday home exudes history and charm, with high ceilings, period features and a wonderful collection of vintage finds from around the world. The ample living space and beautifully simple, terraced garden with far reaching sea views, make this a wonderful holiday retreat for two small families, or a large group.

Falmouth town offers entertainment, boat trips, shops, bars and restaurants all within a 10 minute stroll. The tranquil Helford River, with its creeks and hidden coves, can be reached in 15 minutes by car.

Location and Surrounding Area


From the enormous Georgian sash windows you can enjoy the most wonderful harbour views and across the Carrick Roads to Flushing village. A ten minute stroll along the harbour road takes you to the Old High Street, its eclectic boutiques and some fabulous restaurants. Just a little further down the hill and you are into the centre of Falmouth town.

At the other end of this bustling little town is the Events Square, National Maritime Museum. Falmouth is well served with independent restaurants, and you’ll be able to sample anything from a Sunday roast to fine dining within a ten-minute walk.


Cornwall is renowned for it’s sandy beaches, and Falmouth has three of them. The largest, Gyllyngvase has Blue-Flag status and is safely watched over by RNLI lifeguards in the summer. This wonderful stretch of sand is a short car drive away, or if you are just bringing towels a stroll through town takes you there.

Falmouth is well connected to other parts of Cornwall, with many places a 45-minute drive away. For a day out, head to St Ives to visit the Tate Gallery, or the The Eden Project for a spot of fun amongst tropical plant-life,

Lovely property - photographs paint a very honest picture of what you get. Great location although parking can be a bit painful...


I am so pleased you enjoyed Tehidy House and the location. I imagine you experienced some issues with parking as there are a few people along the road having work done at the moment. I am sorry to hear this had an impact on you.
