*New listing for July 2021*
Sheltered around a marina within a gated development just moments from the harbourside hubbub and beautiful beaches of Falmouth, Wind Rose offers lovers of the ocean wave a holiday escape just a few short steps from the water.
Bring the outdoors in with french doors opening up to a south-facing patio, full of the sounds of clinking masts. Three bedrooms and a generous living area are just the ticket for convivial gatherings of family and friends, and a master balcony provides commanding views of the water.
Over coffee on the terrace of Wind Rose, watch the boats as they leave the marina, bound for the sheltered sailing waters of the River Fal or the open sea. Whilst doing so, plot your own course throughout the day. Perhaps you’ll take to the water yourself from the nearby quayside with a boat trip to St Mawes on the characterful St Mawes Ferry, or stroll to the beach and settle into a classic day beside the seaside.
Pop through the gates right onto Discover Quay and explore Falmouth. Find adventure among the winding streets with glimpses of the water between charming buildings, listen to tales of nautical history at the National Maritime Museum, or pop into a welcoming pub for a pasty and a traditional ceilidh (Folk dance). In Falmouth, you’ll find a character, charm, and a beating heart unlike anywhere else.
After the excitement of the day, settling into an evening at Wind Rose comes easily. Get creative in the open plan-kitchen by rustling up something delicious with some local produce, and dine al-fresco with a glass of something special. After dinner, two choices await, sink into the comfort of the apartment or head out for a nightcap at the Front, with the moon hanging low over the harbour sitting outside and listening to the chatter and ambience on a balmy evening is a delight.
Whichever direction you choose to take, delight in the prospect of endless possibilities stretching out before you, and a supremely comfortable base camp for all the adventure plotting, ocean scheming and wander-lusting you can manage.

Location and Surrounding Area
Wind Rose sits tucked along the quayside of Port Pendennis Marina, a modern gated development of homes and apartments designed to embrace and showcase the nautical ambience of Falmouth. The houses of Campbeltown Way were designed to echo the pastel-coloured houses of Port Grimauld, the Côte-d’Azur town where sailors famously step from the deck directly into their gardens. For this reason, Wind Rose is a brilliant choice as a shoreside base for travelling sailors.
Step out from the house towards Discovery Quay, Falmouth’s hub for all the events that take place throughout the year. Here the stage is set for performances as part of the International Sea Shanty Festival and the Falmouth Oyster Festival. From the quaysides of Falmouth, boat trips can be taken along the river Fal, towards St Mawes or Flushing, and to Truro or the magnificent National Trust house Trelissick on the banks of the Carrick Roads.
A short walk from Wind Rose, the waves lap against the shoreline of Falmouth’s three sandy beaches. Spend the day swimming from the water’s edge or sunbathing against the sea wall watching boats drift across the bay and gulls wheeling across the sky.
In Falmouth, cobbled streets are lined with award-winning restaurants and cafe’s, and the thriving arts scene ensures independent shops and galleries reign supreme. With the harbourside only ever a short step away from the hustle and bustle of the town, it’s hard to forget that you are close to the sparkling water.
Retreat into the wilderness by taking a drive out to the Helford River, where ancient woodland runs alongside the waterline. Here, stride out along the footpaths that line the water’s edge, meandering through meadows and over beaches, stopping into country pubs along the way. Alongside the Helford river, you’ll find Trebah and Glendurgan gardens, where exotic plants thrive in the temperate Cornish climate.
