Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Truro & Falmouth, England, Your Home Away From Home

Truro & Falmouth are located in Cornwall, in England, which is in the far south-west of the country. For a compact country with a large population, this area still enables the person on holidays in Truro & Falmouth to enjoy a quiet retreat at a cottage in the country. Self catering accommodation in Truro and Falmouth is of a high standard, and comes with all the facilities that you will need to enjoy your stay in this wonderful area of England.

Things to Do on Holiday in Truro & Falmouth, England

Truro is the only city in Cornwall, which is strange for a county of that size, however, this does give an indication as to the remote feel of this bottom left hand corner of the United Kingdom. The most dominating feature in Truro is the cathedral, which was completed at the turn of the century, and has a massively tall spire. The remains of an earlier church can still be seen on the site. For a city with a long history, Truro has few old buildings, and although there was a Norman castle there, it no longer exists. Falmouth, a century’s long rival of Truro, boasts many old buildings on the other hand, including defensive works and a castle. It even claims to have a ghost carriage drawn by headless horses… beat that Truro!

Places to Visit on Holiday in Truro & Falmouth, England

If you are staying in self catering accommodation in Truro & Falmouth, then it is highly advisable to make sure that you have the use of a car. Cornwall has a fascinating amount of things to see and do, and transport to them is essential. The Eden Project is an absolutely unique biosphere that needs to be seen to be believed, and houses many plant species from around the world in a series of giant domes. This makes for a great day out from the cottage for couples and families alike. If you thought that Stonehenge was the only example of a standing stone circle in England, then think again. Cornwall has many unique examples scattered around its beautiful countryside, and for anyone with even a passing interest in the past or the mysterious, a day or two spent driving to the main sites is a must. Whilst on holidays in Truro & Falmouth, it is important to savour some of the local food and drink. Even if it’s only a Cornish pasty washed down with a pint of cider, give it a go!

Weather in Truro & Falmouth, England

In fact, Cornwall has a mild climate, meaning that there are warm summers, mild springs and autumns, and a not too extreme winter. Rain does occur, although not as often as people think it does. Still, best come prepared with some waterproofs, especially if you are undergoing a day trek!

The view of the full moon over the sea from our bedroom was magical. Pat and Keith have thought of everything and we would not hesitate to recommend this holiday home to anyone. They will even accommodate small children and well behaved pets. A lovely little private garden overlooking fields. Just perfick!

We were not disappointed as, from our arrival to departure, Jane and Gwyn did all they could to make our stay perfect. On arrival, the welcome pack exceeds the usual wine and cake/scones. You had milk, bread, cheese etc. so that you need not worry about rushing out the next morning for breakfast. The property and facilities are excellent - everything you could possibly want are provided. Having dogs, we wanted a place that we could return to early evening after exploring the wonderful surroundings. Best meal was lunch at the Falmouth Packet on the way to Penzance. Central heating is programmed but the extra bonus of a cosy wood burner makes it a pleasure to return to. Would recommend this property to anyone who wants to explore South Cornwall - at any time of the year. Look forward to returning in a different season and catch up with all those places we missed.
