The property

Just over a mile from the fabulous beach resort of Falmouth, Oak sits within in a tranquil rural setting in a courtyard of stylish barn conversions. Adjacent to the Falmouth's prestigious coastal golf course, this bijou holiday homestay is perfect for couples seeking a fusion of recreation and relaxation, with attractions nearby. The beach at Swanpool is a 10 minute stroll away, so wander down and enjoy a day of sun, sea and surf. A little further along the coast are the beaches at Gyllyngvase in Falmouth with a Blue Flag award and Maenporth just outside the town. Situated on the coastal footpath, you can walk from the doorstep with private access across the golf course, making this venue ideal for ramblers, pet owners and golfers.


Falmouth's cobbled streets are home to shops and galleries, restaurants and traditional inns as well as the National Maritime Museum. A well-known foodie destination, expect the freshest of fish and local produce, world class cuisine, informal beachside restaurants and fantastic food festivals. For an active break, it is also great for water sports with canoeing, sailing, diving and rowing at Falmouth Watersports Centre. For something more leisurely try a pleasure boat trip to the cathedral city of Truro or waterside St Mawes with its 15th century castle. A short drive to the east is the Helford River and the beautiful sub-tropical gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan. Heading down onto the Lizard Peninsula you will discover tiny coves, fishing villages and stunning beaches. Kynance Cove with its cliffs, white sands and turquoise ocean is captivating! Iconic St Ives is also within easy reach with white sand beaches, a pretty harbour, boutiques, ice-cream parlours and Tate St Ives!
