Cornwall Living magazine visits Gwelavon, a striking townhouse near Falmouth's waterfront...

From Cornwall Living magazine, April 2017:


One of the newest additions to the Helpful Holidays' stable is a gem in the nautical town of Falmouth, which remains a favourite destination for visitors and locals. Gwelavon is a striking three-storey townhouse, newly built near the waterfront with stunning views across the river to the handsome village of Flushing.

Just a five-minute stroll from the lively heart of Falmouth, the house is beautifully presented with a stylish, modern vibe. Huge ceiling-high doors fold back from the open-plan living space for sundowners on the decking and a patio garden. Indeed, there's no better way to round off a day exploring the vibrant area than by relaxing on the patio as the sun sets over the marina. With two first-floor bedrooms and a further master double, there's ample room for six.

Watch the colourful boats sail calmly by from the armchair by the dormer window in the master bedroom, relax in your own tranquil space in the living area or embark on a Cornish adventure and explore the many local, family-friendly beaches. Or you can stroll into Falmouth and enjoy a foodie delight at one of the fantastic eateries, take a tour of the fascinating Maritime Museum or just spend a day pottering around the many shops! Truly, Falmouth is a town of abundant entertainment for the whole family and Gwelavon is the ideal base from which to explore it.
