About Falmouth

Falmouth, Cornwall

The historic port of Falmouth is full of history, interesting shops and picturesque narrow streets. It is situated on one of the most stunning natural harbours in the world. There are plenty of excellent beaches nearby and outdoor activities include boat trips along the coast, sailing, kayaking, fishing, diving and walking the coast-path. We can recommend AK Wildlife Cruises who sail throughout the year, finding and observing seals, dolphins, whales and basking sharks.

Look out for Pendennis Castle, the award-winning Falmouth Art Gallery and the National Maritime Museum which are all between a 10 and 20 minute walk from here.
There are lots of great cafes and restaurants in Falmouth, a couple of our favourites are Picnic and the Hunky Dory restaurant.

The sub-tropical gardens at Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick are a short drive away.

Getting about is easy, why not take a boat trip across to St. Mawes or up to Truro, Cornwall’s capital city with its shops and cathedral.

Trains on the Falmouth Maritime Line run regularly to Truro where you can link to the world famous Eden Project or St. Ives with its Tate Gallery. Most of the dramatic “Poldark” filming locations are within a 35 mile radius of our guesthouse.
