Falmouth is a famous historical port that, at one time, was the main departure point for ships leaving for The New World in America. It is now a perfect holiday destination filled with beautiful and luxurious Falmouth holiday rentals, many of them with stunning waterside locations. Falmouth is also known for its beautiful scenery and mix between rolling hillsides and the wide, winding river that splits this hidden part of Cornwall in half. It is a wonderful sea-faring town with a constant flow of boats in and out of the port to admire. Don’t miss the award wining National Maritime Museum which celebrates the sea and boating or award winning gardens at Trelissick and Carwinion. You can also go diving in Falmouth and get up close and personal to the aquatic side of Cornwall, or stay above the surface and indulge in a light bit of fishing, either from the rocks or perhaps hire a boat to venture out on your own for the day.
