Enjoy a well deserved break by the sea in this stylish, boutique apartment. Indulge your senses as you savour the elaborate decor and attention to detail. Comfortably sleeping five and with private parking, Gylly Gables is the ideal location from which to explore Falmouth. Take a sneaky peak at the harbour from the windows of the open plan kitchen dining room, or check out the sea views from the balcony at the front of the property, the perfect spot for afternoon tea. The three bedrooms are beautifully decorated with carefully chosen accessories and striking wallpaper. The master bedroom has a glorious window seat with far reaching views, ideal for a lazy afternoon and a good book. The sitting room is a delight, with a stylish sofa to relax on, and the balcony letting in plenty of light and fresh sea air. An aperitif on the balcony is just the ticket before heading into Falmouth for a meal out.

Gylly Gables is right next to the marvellous Princess Pavilion, ideal for checking out the beautiful grounds or perhaps seeing what entertainment is on that week? Tucked away, near the beaches but still only moments away from the buzz of Falmouth. An ideal base for exploring this bustling harbour town, with the bonus of a parking space, allowing you to abandon the car for the week, and instead enjoying a trip on the ferry or the train. Just a short walk from Pendennis castle, Falmouth's vibrant high street or some of Falmouth's beautiful beaches, Gylly Gables is the perfect retreat after a hard day exploring the area.

We had a fantastic week staying at Gylly Gables. A very clean, cosy and comfortable place. The property is like the Tardis, lots of space for relaxing and spending time with the family. It's based in a fantastic part of Falmouth, 2 minute walk to Gylly Beach & 10 minute walk to the local shops. It's a great location to stay whilst exploring Cornwall. We can't wait to visit again soon.

May 2024

This is our second visit to Gylly Gables and we thoroughly enjoyed it again. It’s great to be able to walk to beach for early morning swim. The parking space is a priority for us. We love Falmouth and surrounding areas.

Holidays in Falmouth

Holidays in Falmouth are made for lazy beach days, relaxed wanderings down cobbled streets, and easy access to some of Cornwall’s most fascinating historical buildings – not to mention a coastline that can easily be confused with the Med.

Situated on the coast, Falmouth benefits from four beautiful beaches, with many more nearby, including the much-loved Blue Flag beach, Gyllyngvase. The vibrant seaside town is also home to a selection of tropical gardens and a plethora of attractions to keep you entertained throughout your stay.

During your holiday in Falmouth, why not leave the car behind and experience some ‘car-free’ days out, enjoying transport links from the town by bus, rail, and even by boat! Visitors can take pleasure cruises around the Fal estuary or along the beautiful Helford River. Take the ferry to Flushing or St Mawes and experience the beautiful scenery along the way – it really is the only way to travel.

Home to the third deepest natural harbour in the world, it will be of little surprise that you can also enjoy many different water-based activities from Falmouth including sailing, sea safaris, and watersports – it really is a boater’s paradise!

Falmouth also benefits from a jam-packed events roster including music and food festivals as well as a week-long, town-wide celebration of all things Falmouth.

If you’re bringing the pooch with you, you’ll find lots of dog-friendly outings around Falmouth, as well as some fantastic eateries that welcome dogs and their well-behaved owners.

Did you know...

Pendennis Castle was built by Henry VIII to protect the Carrick Roads from invasion!

Beaches in Falmouth

If a Cornish stay isn’t complete without a beach day or two, Falmouth is a must-visit with its four beautiful beaches and stunning surrounding coastline.

Gyllyngvase beach – Perhaps Falmouth’s most popular beach, Gylly beach is home to everything you could want from a hazy day in the sand. Consistently flat waters provide the perfect conditions for SUPs while a café and restaurant on the beach offer beachgoers the chance to refresh and refuel without leaving the white gold sands behind.

Castle beach – Just down from Pendennis point you’ll find the aptly named Castle beach, which offers young and intrepid adventurers plenty of rockpools to explore, along with an underwater paradise for keen snorkelers. 

Swanpool beach – More a cove than a beach, Swanpool mixes an idyllic setting with action-packed watersports for a fun-filled beach day whatever your beachy interests. There’s also a great little beachside café for those all-important ice creams.

Maenporth beach – Just on the edge of Falmouth lies another of South Cornwall’s most serene beaches. Flat waters, golden sand, and an award-winning restaurant all add up to an unmissable day amidst sand, sun, and sea in Falmouth.

Things to do in Falmouth

Whether you’re a water baby at heart or a seeker of culture and cuisine, there are plenty of things to add to your holiday itinerary when visiting Falmouth.

Art Galleries

Falmouth is home to an eclectic mix of art galleries, all featuring a wide variety of local and national work. Home to one of the leading art collections in Cornwall, Falmouth Art Gallery is the place to go for a rolling look at Cornish art through the ages or you can head to Beside the Wave for more contemporary exhibitions.

Shopping

After a shopping trip in Falmouth, you’ll want all highstreets to be lined with cobbles and decorated with colourful bunting – it really does set the scene for a vibrant day out! Falmouth’s shops themselves vary from big names like FatFace and Ann’s Cottage to more niche shops from intriguing antiques to everything Cornwall – perfect for your holiday memento. Oh, and if you have a sweet tooth, you’re going to want to check out Roly’s Fudge Pantry – it’s to die for!

History

A holiday in Falmouth wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Pendennis Castle and the National Maritime Museum – two of the town’s top cultural attractions. Both dive into the history of Falmouth and Cornwall with a definite nautical theme, with Pendennis Castle looking more at defence and the museum exploring the wider culture of life by the sea.

Boat Trips

When you get bored of hard ground beneath your feet, set sail up the Fal estuary or along to the Helford river on one of Falmouth’s many fantastic boat trips that vary from party boats to sea safaris to meals on keels (sorry, boat puns are a mandatory here).

Watersports

With South Cornwall’s microclimate and plenty of sheltered bays, the waters around Falmouth are known for being consistently calm, which makes them perfect for mastering your favourite sea-based activity. Try your hand at everything from kayaking to SUPing, swimming to sailing as you swap dry land for the thrill of the Cornish waters.

Walks

River walks, coastal strolls and countryside ambles… there’s no limit to what your feet can discover with the many breath-taking walks in and around Falmouth. Take to the South West Coast Path for unbeatable coastal views (and plenty of opportunities for a cheeky dip in the sea) or take your walk riverside for an idyllic escape to nature. Falmouth’s also home to an impressive collection of gardens, each with their own intriguing collection of paths to explore.

Princess Pavilion

This fantastic theatre complex offers a year-round program of live music, entertainment and theatrical performances. Set in the stunning Gyllyngdune Gardens, you can pop along to take in the beautiful scenery and enjoy a drink and some food in the Garden Room Café. Find out more about the pavilion and what’s on here >

Dining Out

Falmouth is quickly becoming one of Cornwall’s ultimate foodie hotspots thanks to a veritable smorgasbord of top eateries and superb pubs and bars, many with incredible sea views and welcoming dogs. Mexican, Texan, African, Cornish, Caribbean, and vegan, it doesn’t matter what kind of cuisine you fancy, Falmouth’s got it all!

Dog-friendly Falmouth

While the four main beaches in Falmouth all operate under seasonal restrictions (dogs aren’t allowed on the beaches 1st May – 30th September, 10am – 6pm), there are plenty of pup-friendly places for you and the dog to get your beach fix near Falmouth.

Dog-friendly beaches

Polgwidden Cove – Accessed through the beautiful Trebah gardens, Polgwidden is a lovely shingle cove that’s dog-friendly throughout the year. If you don’t fancy walking, you can always rent a boat and sail there as many of the boat hires in Falmouth welcome salty sea dogs!

Sunny Cove – Perhaps the closest dog-friendly beach to Falmouth, Sunny Cove provides a perfectly sheltered place for a dog nap in the sand. It’s situated between Swanpool and Maenporth just off the coast path, making it a great destination for a dog walk. It is worth noting that the cove is popular with naturists so swimming costumes are optional!

Dog-friendly pubs and restaurants

Stable Pizza – Combining pizza, cider, and harbour views, Stable in Falmouth is a popular haunt for good reason. Dogs are welcome on the ground floor as well as outside so the whole family can enjoy a meal out together.

Five Degrees West – A pub that specialises in pizza and pints, Five Degrees is always a firm favourite with those who want to dine with their pup in tow. Pop in for a quiet drink or a slap-up meal, the choice is yours!

The Boathouse – Claiming the title of ‘pub with the best sea view in Falmouth’, The Boathouse has been welcoming guests for over 300 years, which is perhaps how they’ve perfected their easy-going offering. The menu might change with the season (and the chef’s fancy), but the friendly, dog-welcoming vibes remain the same.

What's on in Falmouth

The town has a rich tradition of hosting a year-round programme of events, from sailing regattas to live music and an abundance of food and drink festivals. You don’t have to wait for specific seasons either, as Falmouth enjoys plenty of markets and live music throughout the year.

Falmouth Spring Festival

Are you ready to paint the town yellow? Every year, the Falmouth Spring Festival celebrates the start of this blooming wonderful season with a line-up of fantastic events and a tradition that sees the town’s window displays reflect the daffodils that decorate the fields around.

Falmouth Food Festival

Filling Falmouth with tempting treats from a variety of local vendors and producers, Falmouth Food Festival is the place to be for an epic feed. Spend the day filling your bags (and bellies) with the very best grub Cornwall has to offer, while sipping Cornish ales and listening to superb musicians - it's a true feast for the senses!

International Sea Shanty Festival

This internationally popular music event brings all the foot-stomping fun of sea shanties to Falmouth as thousands of people descend to share in a festival that would make any pirate proud.

Falmouth Week

Falmouth Week isn’t just a sailing regatta, it’s a ten-day-long, town-wide celebration that features every entertainment imaginable including unmissable live music, maritime marvels, and aerial displays. Lots of the town’s shops and organisations join in, adding their fun-filled activities to the jam-packed roster.

Falmouth Oyster Festival

Bringing live music, fresh food, and a bevy of activities to the streets of Falmouth, this festival has become a tradition we just can’t do without. Celebrity chefs provide demos so you can recreate your favourite dishes at home while plenty of food and drink stalls provide you with everything you need for a true Cornish feast.

Falmouth Book Festival

You’ll want to pull your nose out of your favourite book for this one as much-loved authors, poets, and storytellers flock to Falmouth for a literary celebration like no other.

This is our second visit to Gylly Gables and we thoroughly enjoyed it again. It’s great to be able to walk to beach for early morning swim. The parking space is a priority for us. We love Falmouth and surrounding areas.

Fabulous cottage with character. A real 'tardis' with bags of space. Beautifully furnished, extremely clean and with all the bells and whistles any holidaymaker would need. Would highly recommend

Loved our stay at Gylly Gables - perfect location close to the beach and center of Falmouth. Apartment very comfortable and clean. We really enjoyed having BBQs on the beach at sunset and wanted to stay longer. Would definitely book again.

Gylly Gables was well appointed and in a nice central location car parking was tight for a big car . You could walk to some beaches and into Falmouth with ease.

Really lovely place to stay in a great location for beach, harbour and shopping. Clean and beautifully decorated. Perfectly comfortable for my family of 5. No need to hesitate just book it.

The apartment layout decor and furnishings where of a high standard. the beds and bedding was very comfortable, with top quality bedlinen. Gylly Gables is ideal located in Falmouth to walk into town and for the local Gyllyvase sandy Beach. The information pack was well presented with lots of information. The apartment had numerous books and information about Cornwall from day trips, costal walks, boat trips, local blue flag sandy beaches , perfect for families and relaxing. The apartment provided amenities for the beach, wind breakers sun parasols, cooler bags, beach blankets.

this is the second time I have stayed at this apartment and will be looking forward to staying again in the not too distant future. highly recommended.

Perfect accommodation. Beautiful decor. Gylly beach cafe is 5 minutes walk . Food is delicious and price very reasonable.

Gylly Gables is a lovely property in an excellent location. Hope to return again.

Just the most beautiful property in a great location. Highly recommended!

This place is incredible. So chic and cosy! The most comfortable bed and everything you’d need. 2 minute walk to the sea and views to the harbour from the kitchen too. Great location and the lady that owned it is lovely!

Gylly Gables is an amazing place that is full of everything you need whilst on holiday plus many extras. The decor, bed linen, lighting and soft furnishings are 5 star quality. Enjoy breakfast on the balcony or a glass of something in the evening. The window seat in the loft bedroom was fantastic to enjoy a good book and watch the sail boats go by. Location is ideal for both the beach and the town and harbour. A visit is highly recommended for couples and families alike.

A wonderful week and a wonderful home for our family of 5. Beautifully restored property with much care and attention to detail.The wallpapers and lighting in particular were just amazing! A truly comfortable property with the addition of a little balcony perfect for a quoet breakfast alone or for sipping drinks whilst watching the sun go down. Location was perfect as were the views: Harbour, High Street stroll, Cafes & Restaurants 15 minutes on foot to the one side. Turn the other direction for a few minutes walk to the beautiful Gyllyngvase beach which is clean and intimate yet well facilitated with kyak and sup board hire, restaurant and bakery. We shall miss waking up to the sights of sailboats on the sea from the master bedroom, single 'wave' room and lounge. Highly recommended!

This place is a real Gem! A quirky beauty that just gives and gives. The Apartment is over two levels and has a very spacious feel about it. The Jellyfish Super king Bedrooms really roomy with high ceilings and lots of swagger, better than any Boutique Hotel room. The beds where excellent and extremely comfortable , with quality bedlinen, towels and bathroom accessories. The balconies peaceful, relaxing and has a loverly view of the castle. A fully fitted kitchen with all the amenities and utensils. Beach chairs and matts cooler bags where also provided. We parked the car and walked everywhere - such a joy to be so close to everything . We loved the beautiful Blue Flag beach , gardens, nearby spa and many restaurants. we loved all the decorative touches, guide books, Cornish art works and lots of trays and throws! A well thought outing unique place to enjoy Cornwall from . Highly recommended very happy and delighted to book again.

We were expecting a comfortable apartment and knew it was close to so many things we’d like to do, but Gylly Gables exceeded our expectations – it's a real treat to stay here, as well as being a fab base for a seaside holiday. Location-wise I couldn’t ask for more. Gyllyngvase beach is just a stroll down the hill and the owner has provided many things to make that enjoyable and easy (mats, parasol, cool bag, buckets and spades – we were quite happy to bring our own beach towels). The quayside and high street seem closer than navigation apps suggest, so we were never far from anything we needed and loads of places to eat out, but to be honest, the kitchen-diner in the apartment is so nice and well kitted out that we enjoyed eating in. Not to mention the balcony.

As a place to stay it’s the perfect eclectic mix of practical amenities and a lot of style. The beds are dangerously snooze-able, the downstairs double bedroom has a massive super-king bed and really spacious wardrobe, while the loft bedroom is a pleasure to chill out in - on the window seat with a breeze blowing through. Perfect to see the moon rise over the sea. After an exhaustingly fun day (sea, sun, sand, smugglers and pirates) you need a good shower or bath, and these ones are like 5 star hotel bathrooms.

SO relaxing just being here. We want to come back soon, so don’t be surprised if you can’t get a booking, haha.

If you are looking for a holiday in Cornwall then would highly recommend Aspect holidays. The website is easy to use and the description of the property we chose was very accurate. A welcome card was left for us, a lovely food hamper and prosecco - what more could you want. I only booked about 3 weeks before we went and had not heard of Aspect holidays before- They did not disappoint we had a brilliant holiday in a fantastic property. Would use them again.
