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.

Lined and towels provided as expected. Modern kitchen is well equipped with milk, tea, coffee provided on our arrival. Things like cooking oil, foil, cling wrap and bin bags also provided which was an unexpected bonus. Bathroom is a great size with a great shower. An additional downstairs toilet is a bonus. Never used the site facilities so can't review these, but they seemed to be popular with others on the site. Falmouth is only two miles away and has a great selection of supermarkets, shops and restaurants. There are no smaller shops in the local area so planning ahead is essential. There are lots of places to explore in and around Falmouth and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property to a young family.

Lots of space for a family to chill in and well equip kitchen to cook and cater for them. Only 10 minutes walk or 5 minute scooter (children) to the shops, gallery's, bars and restaurants. Beaches on your doorstep to enjoy at any given moment and a simply stunning view at all times. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will be back.

                                                                                                      It was with some financial trepidation that we booked this rather expensive holiday home for a week. We needn't have worried, it exceeded our expectations and have to say that it is full value for money. The 6 bedrooms are spacious and 4 of them have a sea view. And there we have the most stunning feature of this property, the view. It's awesome. You could easily kid yourself that you are on a Greek Island looking over the Mediterranean Sea. Our weather was mixed with hot days at the start and the end and in between a little bit wet and blustery. The beach at Maenporth was excellent and we were able to hire out kayaks and paddle boards fairly cheaply, it's only a 10 minute walk down the Coastal Path. On the wet days we went to Lands End and the Seal Sanctuary and at Helford Passage we were able to hire out a motor boat which the kids loved. We even got a day scuba diving in at Porthkerris. What Was Good? The size of the house (there were 10 of us) especially the dining kitchen where we spent most evenings taking it in turn to cook. The lounge with its comfy chairs looking out over sea, the outside furniture with barbeque, the private beach (low tide only) with just a mere 174 steps down were also up there with the best. What Was Not So Good? Very little. We had an issue with the hot water system for a short period, but that was addressed and a spare part for one of the boilers has been ordered. Perhaps some 'extended family' size pans would be good too, we struggled a bit in that area. A tip for anyone booking this accommodation. Order a Tesco delivery to arrive an hour or so after you do. We did this and it worked perfectly. The nearest big supermarket is an Asda in Falmouth, around 5 miles away but there is a Spar in the village 1.5 miles away. We had small children so didn't go the pubs, choosing to spend our time in the house (which probably saved us several hundred pounds). In conclusion........ we all said that we'd love to live in this house were it not for the typically Cornish narrow roads.
