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.
