Make a holiday cottage in Falmouth your home away from home

Anyone who'd like to experience a relaxing seaside retreat should consider booking a holiday rental in Falmouth. This port city near the tail end of Britain is famous for its harbour, one of the world’s deepest, from which splendid views over the bay can be enjoyed. It is also a great place to get out and be one with nature through hikes and other outdoor activities. HomeAway assures holidaymakers to this part of Cornwall luxurious housing for the duration of their stay, offering them cottages and apartments among other accommodation options. The ultra-modern holiday cottages in Falmouth are a popular choice, with their spacious interiors and proximity to the quay. Other cottages overlook the sea and are equipped with everything one needs from microwaves and washing machines to Wi-Fi.

Things to do

-Outdoor fun: The rich greenery of Falmouth’s landscapes provides excellent grounds for a wide range of outdoor activities, providing the ultimate treat for adrenaline junkies. They can fly over the pine forests on zip wires or take on the rocks with a stint of abseiling or rock climbing. Watersports such as canoeing and kayaking are also available and there are activities tailor-made for youngsters. Anglers looking for a place to fish will find few places better than Falmouth, and this locale also lays claim to fabulous diving spots. Avid hikers can sign up for the Autumn Hiking Festival for the experience of a lifetime, whilst fans of two wheels will find many excellent cycling trails.

-Golf: Visitors can perfect their swing while on holiday as they take advantage of the fabulous courses in Falmouth. One of these is the Budock Vean Golf Course, a 9-hole fairway which provides beginners with quite a challenge.

-Beaches: Holidaymakers staying in Falmouth holiday homes will be able to take blissful promenades at Swanpool Beach. Treating themselves to some of the tastiest ice-cream in the UK, they'll find that the beach is quiet, clean and commands incredible views. Whatever the weather looks like, one will always find people out and about on the sandy shores.

-Gardens: Among the many places where visitors can walk amid rustling vegetation and derive the tranquillity of nature is the 15-acre Penjerrick Garden. As they amble through clusters of bamboos, tree ferns and magnolias, holidaymakers will feel refreshed. Enys Garden, however, is one of the oldest gardens in Cornwall – its colours are so rich and vibrant, especially in spring, created by ubiquitous bluebells and other diverse plant species.

-Historic sites: A visit to Falmouth would be incomplete without a tour of Pendennis Castle. This sturdy-looking stone fort boasting towers and lush lawns occupies a significant place in history as one of Henry VIII’s coastal fortresses. It was also used in World War II as a secret military base and the command centre for Cornwall. For more on Cornish history, Falmouth holiday home residents can pop into the nearby National Maritime Museum.

Travel to Falmouth

Among the many ways of getting to holiday cottages in Falmouth are trains from London Paddington to Cornwall. The train will stop at Truro and travellers will then connect to Falmouth using the Maritime Line. Another means is the National Express coach which takes visitors from all parts of the UK to Falmouth. Travellers can alternatively decide to drive themselves to Cornwall using the M4, M5 or M6. Visitors from other parts of Europe can fly in through Newquay Cornwall Airport or use a ferry.

Bedrooms are great, as are the bathrooms. Location works well for the high street, although people from the clubs and pubs can create some noise in the small hours in the road below. Parking works. Lift was out so we got healthy on the stairs. I'd recommend it easily. It was great.

It is well positioned and we were able to sit and watch the world go by from the bay window. During our stay the weather was not good and it proved an excellent spot to do just that. HOWEVER - on leaving to go home, the lift failed with me alone trapped inside , no phone only able to communicate through the door to my wife outside. The emergency button connected to EUROLIFTS but were no help at three attempts (I am of the opinion the operator thought it was an April fools joke since it was April 01) Fortunately my wife contacted the owner who by her initiative was able to send her husband to make some switching and I was released after a long thirty minutes. This to my knowledge, failure has occurred on three occasions in the last few months and needs some serious attention by the manufacturer of the lift to make it reliable. Fortunately there is another access via external steps to a secure coded entry at the rear of the building.

                                                                                                      Larboard is very handy to the town and arrival instructions were easy to follow. Everything was provided as specified and the views over the river and towards the harbour were splendid. Being March it was too early in the season to take advantage of the patio but in warm weather it would be an excellent place to chill out after a busy day. WiFi worked well as did the TV and the whole apartment was very comfortable. We found the heating controls a little baffling at first but were able to manage them. The kitchen was well equipped and all the necessary instruction books were available. There was also a good selection of guide books and other literature to plan days out and walks etc. There is no shortage of good restaurants, pubs and cafes in Falmouth, all within easy walking distance. We hope to return in the future and stay here again. All in all a most enjoyable break.
