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.

Weather in Falmouth

The weather in these parts is temperate and those headed to Falmouth in summer should expect relatively cool highs of about 20°C. August can be quite rainy, but most of the rain in this town falls in winter, with December receiving about 110mm. Winter temperatures are not too harsh, averaging about 10°C.

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.

Wonderful place whatever the weather.

5 of 5
We had a fabulous stay and would definitely go back. The decor is striking and the flat lovely and warm - with a beautifully comfortable bed!! Jo had many nice extra touches that made the trip even more special. The weather was generally terrible but it didn't matter - we watched it come and go from the fantastically positioned windows. Just great.

Really lovely property in a great location. Clean, spacious and has everything you need.

4 of 5
Really nice property in a great location. Clean, spacious and has everything you need. The Christmas tree made it very festive, thanks. Would book again. A few maintenance issues could be resolved which would make it top notch & 5 star. i.e. Fix loose toilet seat, bathroom sink plug open/close switch stuck/rusty and would benefit from proper shower too, as it takes a while to regulate and has a very poor to angle. The kitchen tap is also loose.
