The property

Desirably sited in one of Falmouth's prime waterside locations boasting impressive, uninterrupted views across the bay, this penthouse apartment offers a fabulous holiday experience. Located at the top of the old High Street in the Packet Quays development of townhouses and apartments, this superb holiday retreat is within minutes of the quaint and vibrant narrow streets of the town, rich with antique and curio shops, gift shops and art galleries galore.

Foodie lovers will be tempted by the excellent array of restaurants and inns, all conveniently close by, serving fresh, local produce. Falmouth's natural appeal is its magnificent harbour, an active sea port and safe anchorage for vessels of all sizes. Venture across the waters on a fishing expedition or pleasure boat to St Mawes, an area of outstanding natural beauty, or travel up the river to Truro, the city of cobbled lanes and the majestic cathedral with its 250ft high spire. The beaches of Swanpool, Gyllyngvase and Maenporth are all superb, with golden sands and sheltered waters.

The apartment offers a stylish and relaxing setting, with floor to ceiling windows or doors from all the principal rooms leading out onto a generous balcony (Children to be supervised) that spans the front of the apartment, showcasing bountiful water vistas, alive and bobbing with colourful boats. The living room has large comfy sofas and the dining area is perfect for social gatherings over an indulgent cream tea or pasty.

The Lizard Peninsula has a myriad of hidden coves and one of the
most sublime is Kynance Cove, with azure waters and white sands reminiscent of a Mediterranean hot-spot. Lizard Point, famed for its rugged coastline, is a huge attraction for walkers and explorers whatever the weather.
