Location and Surrounding Area
Aber View is a little piece of heaven on the river, and an ideal base to explore this idyllic corner of Cornwall. From beaches to museums and galleries, a stay in Falmouth offers something for all tastes.
Stroll five minutes along the picturesque waterside and you’ll come to Falmouth’s Old High Street where, as well as Stones Bakery, you’ll find independent antiques and vintage shops, wonderful restaurants, and a host of excellent cafés. Hours can be spent in Falmouth soaking up the unique atmosphere of this town, and a range of events throughout the year ensure the buzz and energy of entertainment is never far away.
The Prince of Wales Pier, situated just at the bottom of the Old High Street, takes you on journeys across the Fal River and beyond. Head over to St Mawes, keeping an eye out for dolphins in the bay as you go, or take a little boat over to Flushing and try and spot Aber View from the other side of the water.
Just a short drive away is the Helford River, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Here the water is pristine, and stunning walks criss-cross the landscape. The area is also home to the famous subtropical gardens of Glendurgan and Trebah, where rare ferns and palm trees nestle in valleys leading down to sandy beaches.
