Self-catering holiday homes in Cornwall are often described as by the sea but this waterside apartment really couldn’t be any closer! From the small balcony off the living room, steps lead directly onto the beach at low tide, or at high tide see the water lap right below the (almost) floor to ceiling windows.0

This ground floor, three bedroom apartment is in the charming Packet Quays in Falmouth. Ideally suited to those who can manage steps and don’t mind Falmouth’s hills, but want to sit back, relax and enjoy the uninterrupted views. Sailing yachts and other pleasure boats provide an ever-changing scene whatever the weather.

This holiday home is well maintained, comfortably furnished and well equipped with electric central heating and double glazing. Falmouth town center, with all its amenities, is just a few minutes walk, up the rustic granite steps ope and onto the top of the Old High Street, a lovely mix of independent boutiques, including Stones Bakery for your breakfast pastries, creative workshops and vintage shops.

Location and Surrounding Area


To the side of Victoria Quay is a slipway where a dinghy or kayak can be launched. Falmouth Marina is a three-minute drive away. Some steep steps or a longer sloping route take you up to the High Street level, from where you are minutes walk from the main shopping centre of Falmouth. From the heart of Falmouth, explore the historic town, or take a boat trip from the nearby Prince of Wales Pier to St Mawes, Flushing, or further afield.

Falmouth has a great mix of unusual shops, waterside bars and restaurants, as well as leisure activities, such as the Ships and Castles swimming pool, art galleries and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall. Lovely beaches are nearby, and you’ll be a short drive away from the Helford River- an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with beautiful scenery.

As per other reviews a little tired in places but the fantastic view and price more than make up for this. Very comfortable and cosy. Convenient as it's on the ground floor and very close to the town centre. Also has two secure under cover parking spaces.

Vicki, Staying at Victoria Quay 2

Had a lovely time here, been with Cornish holidays for over 10 years and they never disappoint, always friendly, helpful and accommodation really lovely and clean, first time at Victoria Quay, brilliant , didn’t watch TV once, why would you with this view , can’t wait to come back.

We love this property for its proximity to the sea. This ground floor apartment has its very own small balcony with steps directly onto the beach or into the sea - depending on the tide. We have enjoyed the quietness and the views for several years and will continue to do so. The ever-moving scenery is lovely. And all so close to the town. This year we all had a go at paddleboarding with varying success!!! The ease of getting on and off the board at high or low tide is the best. Then up the steps to the cosy indoors and a yummy Cornish pasty. What more could you want from a holiday. We will be back!

From Packet Quays not only do you get an ever changing vision of superb sun-rises, wonderful ships and boats of all types, but also the occasional confused duck! We love it and keep coming back
