The property

Breathtaking views of Falmouth harbour greet you as you open the gate to the terrace leading to Seaworthy. Built in the 19th century in the days of sail, the Pilots who lived here guided the famous Packet Sailing ships into the safety of Falmouth's deep quay. This ever-changing vista is framed on the one side by Pendennis Castle and the adjacent all-weather aqua dome, and across the harbour on the other side by the green slopes of Trefusis Point. Across the bay the castle at St Mawes can be spied. The sandy beaches at both Gyllyingvase and Castle Beach are within a five minute drive or a 15 minute stroll. Positioned in a little terrace of three similar cottages in a pedestrian way, this contemporary styled cottage boasts a paved terrace at the front, providing a wonderful setting for breakfast or sundowner drink perfect for families, friends and couples seeking relaxation, with a myriad of recreation opportunities, facilities and adventures close by.


Falmouth has four beaches; Gyllyngvase, which has kayak and canoe hire, and Castle beach are within walking distance while Swanpool and Maenporth are a short drive away with beach cafes for oceanside refreshment. Browse the galleries, craft shops and boutiques, dine in one of the many eateries, restaurants, enjoy coffee pit stops, pasties and fish and chips celebrity style! Discover the latest exhibits at The National Maritime Museum or hop aboard a boat; the ferry to St Mawes, a fishing excursion or seal safari caper. For drier pursuits don walking boots and experience picturesque coastside rambles.


With sea views from all the principal rooms, Seaworthy takes advantage of its coastal setting with a fresh, light interior offering all the home comforts. The feature original fireplace, with an electric stove adds a decorative and additional cosy touch to the sitting room with ocean views, wood flooring and comfy seating. Doors lead into the dining area with well equipped kitchen beyond, creating a modern contemporary space for socialising and feasts - if Falmouth can't tempt you with its varied cuisine.
