  • “The whole experience was really brilliant in all aspects.”

    It couldn't have been any closer to all the facilities you could wish for eateries too many to mention & close to the pier where many of the boat trips went from and the Tourist information centre was there and you could book through them or at the many kiosks dotted around. The best part if you wanted to go around the large busy streets you had a shuttle bus that you could use. We used it for free as our concessionary bus passes in our town allowed free travel anywhere but it was only £2 hop ...

    It couldn't have been any closer to all the facilities you could wish for eateries too many to mention & close to the pier where many of the boat trips went from and the Tourist information centre was there and you could book through them or at the many kiosks dotted around. The best part if you wanted to go around the large busy streets you had a shuttle bus that you could use. We used it for free as our concessionary bus passes in our town allowed free travel anywhere but it was only £2 hop off and hop on for other younger adults. Bargain. We even had free travel to Truro from Falmouth with the passes, provided you travelled after 9.30 each day. Most of the buses could be caught at Falmouth to any parts of Cornwall free uses these bus passes.For us it was wonderful. Central to two train stations(town & docks) in the town you were spoilt for choice. We chose to leave the car parked in the accommodation all week as it was in a safe underground car park for the apartment and allowed us to leisurely explore without having to drive everywhere.

The property

It's more about boat watching than people watching from The Lookout and from its vantage point overlooking the Falmouth Estuary, this spacious apartment really does live up to its name.

The magnificent harbour below is filled with craft from dinghys to super yachts and even the odd cruise liner or battle ship.

Just moments from the centre of bustling Falmouth, an easy stroll will bring you to boutiques, antique and curio shops and artisan delicatessens.

Bar and café culture is very much alive in the town with a dazzling array of options from cappuccinos and cream teas to cocktails and canapés.

Falmouth is a fantastic destination for families with activities for all weathers; relax on one of the three sandy beaches at Swanpool, Gyllyngvase and Maenporth or try your hand at kayaking, sailing or diving at one of the water sport centres in the town.

The Medieval Pendennis Castle, The National Maritime Museum and Ships and Castles Leisure Centre are also great options for fun on those rainy days.

A boat trip is a must when in Falmouth; departing regularly from the town quay, there are plenty of options for exploring the beautiful hidden creeks of the Carrick Roads or Helford River with stops at pretty riverside inns along the way. The Lookout is part of the prestigious Packet Quays development and standing at the bank of windows in the vast sitting room overlooking the water gives the distinct feeling of being at the bridge of a ship.

A vaulted ceiling adds to the tremendous feeling of space in this room which forms the heart of the apartment.

The kitchen enjoys a similar dramatic outlook and there are two terraces catering for both morning and evening sun, each equipped with garden furniture and colourful plants.

About the location

FALMOUTH

Mabe 3 miles; Penryn 2 miles; Truro 11 miles.

Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by the rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. Go there by car (15 miles) or take the passenger ferry from Falmouth (15 minutes). For nature lovers there is the Swanpool Nature Reserve, a lagoon and site of special scientific interest teeming with a variety of wildlife. Falmouth offers such a rich variety of landscape and attractions for people of all ages, it is sure to tempt you back time and again.
