Upstairs, living/dining room with pebble-effect ‘living flame’ fire, TV/DVD and uninterrupted views of the bay as if looking from the bow of a ship.

Nearby there are plenty of activities to keep the whole family busy including walks, watersports and boat trips.

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.
