Castle bay view falmouth

5 of 5
The apartment was very very good, it was well appointed and the decor was 1970 ish with a modern twist to the style. The kitchen facilities catered from microwave to master chef depending on your want or desire. The views over the bay and the channel were better than the Internet pictures had indicated. We spent many a relaxing hour sitting in the swivel chairs using the binoculars (supplied) seeing the ships and birds out in the bay. Falmouth town (city) was only 15 mins walk and the station was 5 mins. We had a train ride to Looe an enjoyable day out. On another day we had a ferry boat to St Mawes - the gardens only open Wed & Fri - the castle every day ! The restaurant choices were very good :- burgers, stakes , fish & fish, vegetarian, Caribbean. Thai. You paid your money and made your choice we didn't have a bad one; don't forget to have a corniche ice cream delicious ! Falmouth and the apartment is a place we will return to one day.
