Location and Surrounding Area
The historic harbour town of Falmouth is as famous for its maritime history as it is for being the third largest natural harbour in the world. It’s also swiftly garnering a reputation as one of the leading destinations for dining and culture in the South West.
With an almost endless events calendar, and Cormorants as your base, you’ll easily be able to enjoy festivities ranging from the International Sea Shanty Festival to the Fal River Festival. Restaurants, bars, and independent cafés will keep you well fed and watered, with delights from celebrated chefs like Rick Stein to well-kept secrets like Provedore, a small neighbourhood café/restaurant hidden from the crowds.
Step out onto the Old High Street, Falmouth’s best spot for coffee and shopping, where you’ll find anything from antiques to unusual homeware. Grab a bite to eat from Stones Bakery on your way down to the pier and explore what lies beyond the view from the apartment with a boat trip out to St Mawes, or upriver to the historic cathedral city of Truro
Sandy beaches are only a short stroll away through town, and you can take your pick from the three that Falmouth has to offer. A dip in the sea is a must during the summer, and the more adventurous can try a spot of paddle boarding or kayaking from WeSUP, found on Gylly Beach.
For a break from the vibrancy of Falmouth, simply take a trip out to the Helford River and enjoy the tranquil delights of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just a ten-minute drive away. Here upon the river lined with gorgeous ancient woodland, peace and nature reign. Beaches and coves abound, and meadows at the waterside make perfect spots for an idyllic picnic or two.
