Accommodation for your seaside holiday – local attractions
Travellers to Falmouth will enjoy sunbathing and swimming along the soft beaches, like Swanpool beach or Maenporth beach. Try your hand at water sports such as windsurfing or dinghy sailing. Fishing is an option along the docks, and a great way to chat with the locals. Kids will love the summer bouncy castle at Swanpool, while adults can explore nearby Swanpool lake, home to over 100 species of birds.
In the past, the town’s docks and water have even attracted the attention of Hollywood. Walt Disney filmed parts of the 1950 movie Treasure Island by the Fal River. Even Brad Pitt had a turn, fighting off zombies in the 2011 film World War Z.
Visiting in the spring or summer months? Be sure to explore the exquisite gardens that pepper the town’s landscape, such as Fox Rosehill Gardens and Trebah Gardens. Wander the manicured hedge maze at Glendurgan, or get your camera ready to take pictures of the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Its abundant wildlife and hand-tended floral pathways let you lose yourself in the atmosphere of the natural world.
For those visitors with a penchant for history, explore the rich background of the town with a visit to the Tudor-style St. Mawes Castle. King Henry VIII built it as a defence of the entrance to Carrick Roads. History buffs will enjoy seeing the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, with over 15 galleries to explore! The Royal Cornwall Museum will enthrall you with its exhibit on ancient Egypt, and its own Egyptian mummy!
Stay close to the Harbour
Budget-conscious visitors will be pleased to hear that several cheap hotels locate themselves close to the harbour of Falmouth in Cornwall. If your holiday is all about the seafront, you can find low-priced single or family rooms to let with a location overlooking the waters. Although there is plenty of accommodation available, visitors arriving in the summertime should opt for reservations if they wish to stay along the waters.
These establishments fill up quickly, and the prices have a greater tendency to fluctuate higher during warmer seasons. Even if your plans are last minute, you can still find economical hotels, or cheap Falmouth bed and breakfasts within the centre of town and near both rail stations ; Town and Docks train station.
This is especially ideal if you wish to explore the town’s local eateries by dining offsite. Many cultural attractions, such as the beaches, are within walking distance. But if you require extensive transportation, you will find a railway train station available to convey you to other nearby Cornwall towns for day trips (see holiday apartments in Cornwall).
Among the cheap accommodations is 2 star rated family run Rosslyn Hotel, close to the town centre and the waterfront. The hotel is conveniently located on the northern side of Falmouth and all that the town has to offer is within easy reach.
