The property

Enjoying views across the scenic waterways of one of the world's largest natural harbours, encompassing the charismatic village of Flushing where cottages hug the waterfront and on to St Anthony Head in the distance, will add immense pleasure to your stay in this superb apartment.
Wander the narrow cobbled streets of Falmouth town and seek refreshment in one of the characterful inns serving Cornish ciders and ales. Browse the curio shops and art galleries and sample the fayre from one of the many superb restaurants, cafes and eateries - with pasties, cream
teas and fish and chips all temptingly on offer.


Guests cannot fail to be impressed by the generously proportioned rooms and comfort within. The open uncluttered style of the spacious living room permits the eye to be drawn out to the activity of the nautical scene beyond and natural light is harnessed by double aspect windows and fully glazed doors that lead onto a super balcony. A lovely room to relax in, boldly striped blue and white settees sharply contrast the pale beech furnishings and neutral carpeting. The cool calico shaded decor and tasteful coastal colour theme extends into full en-suite bedrooms where comfortable beds are dressed in fabrics that reflect the colours of the sea.


A magnificent holiday destination at any time of year, there is much to see and do in this popular, lively resort where life centres around its colourful harbour and scenic waterways. Pleasure boat trips and fishing excursions can be enjoyed, up the river to Truro city with its dramatic Neolithic three-spired cathedral, or across to St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula, a stunning area of outstanding natural beauty. Have fun with activities such as sailing, swimming, fishing or golf. A visit to the National Maritime Museum is not to be missed and Henry VIIIs Pendennis Castle is a worthy attraction. Visit Swanpool and Maenporth Beach or discover the beautiful secret coves of The Lizard Peninsula, tucked away and accessed down the dramatic cliff tops. Kynance Cove is an absolute gem and is known for its flora and fauna and it is sometimes possible to spot the rare Cornish chough, the bird of the Cornish coast of arms, perching in the clifftops.
