Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Falmouth

Falmouth, on the south coast of Cornwall, 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 destination for self-catering holidays in Falmouth’s beautiful, luxury holiday cottages, many of them with stunning waterside locations. Falmouth is also known for its attractive scenery and mix between rolling hillsides and the wide, winding river that splits this hidden part of Cornwall in half. It is a beautiful sea-faring town with a constant flow of boats in and out of the port to admire.

Don’t miss the award-winning National Maritime Museum, which celebrates the sea and boating or the award-winning gardens at Trelissick and Carwinion. From your holiday cottage in Falmouth, you can also go diving and get up close and personal with the aquatic side of Cornwall. 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.

Being in Cornwall, Falmouth appeals to artists whose work can be found in many local galleries and the Falmouth Art Gallery, one of the South West’s leading art galleries. There are ample opportunities to learn to sail in Falmouth or perhaps try your hand at gig boat racing and experience the incredible culture surrounding it, the competition and the feeling of being on the water of the Penryn River. Keep your eye out for Falmouth Week and other regattas around this lively area of Cornwall. Head inland a few miles from Falmouth holiday rentals (by car or scenic train ride) to the historic city of Truro. The visitor will delight in the choice of independent shops, street cafes, world-class theatre, and concerts at the Hall for Cornwall on Lemon Quay. If the tide is right, you can return to Falmouth via riverboat.

Go horse riding along the high cliff tops, or hire a bike and cycle the path along the edge of Cornwall. From the high cliffs surrounding Falmouth, it’s easy to see why it’s become so popular over time. When the sun’s shining on this quaint town, you’ll find everyone retreating to the picture-perfect beaches along the coastline with lovely yellow sand and shallow tides, perfect for great, safe family holidays. Falmouth is the retreat for a relaxing but lively, fun family break.
