Book

It is easy to lose track of time as you gaze out of the windows at Slipway Loft, admiring the moored yachts, watching the paddle boarders and all the comings and goings of Falmouth's iconic harbour. Some days you could be admiring cruise ships, other days a tall ship from bygone days, the view is spellbinding! Modern furnishings and a very cool interior, Slipway Loft offers guests a chic retreat by the sea, perfectly placed to enjoy all that Falmouth has to offer. Open the balcony doors and let the afternoon sun stream into the modern, living area, relax on the balcony with a G&T and watch Falmouth go by, as you relax. The delights of Events Square are just steps away, where you can enjoy Falmouth's festivals and events, or perhaps some fine dining in one of the many restaurants. The Maritime museum is a welcome refuge on a rainy day and, on sunnier days, one can hire a pleasure boat and look back at Slipway Loft from the water.

Wake up ready to explore cosmopolitan Falmouth, enjoy the Maritime Museum or Falmouth Art gallery, or perhaps just meander through the bustling high street stopping at one of the many eateries to soak up the atmosphere. Maybe take a boat trip from the pier, a river cruise along the Fal up to Truro or the picturesque ferry trip across to St Mawes could be just the ticket. Slipway Loft offers visitors the opportunity to experience the real Falmouth with spectacular harbour views and a myriad of fantastic cafes and bars just moments away. Whatever your reason for visiting Falmouth, recently voted the best place to live in the southwest in the prestigious Sunday Times ‘the best place to live’, Slipway Loft ensures you’ll be just as happy staying in, as you will be exploring this stunning part of Cornwall.

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.

Lovely modern, clean and an all round amazing place to stay. We have stayed in lots of Aspect Holiday properties and this has got to be one of our favourites by far. Great location, with some amazing restaurants nearby. 10/10 would recommend.

A perfect location to spend hours watching the ships sail in and out. In walking distance of a beautiful square for food, drink, even a few cocktails. Town and the beech are both in walking distance and are full of beautiful shops, cafes and restaurants. The property is just beautiful, spacey with the most amazing views of the Barbour to wake up to. From the busy start of the day, to watching the lights across the sea at night. Public toilets are between the apartment and the shops and there are also public toilets on the beech, along side a cafe and restaurant. A Sunday roast is a must have at the Working Boat.

Our family absolutely loved slipway loft and would definitely come back again. The apartment is absolutely beautiful with plenty of space for a large family. The photos don’t do it justice! There were a bedroom with its own en suite, as well as another bathroom downstairs and a toilet upstairs and the 3rd floor is just so beautiful so it and relax in. Views were beautiful and I was so pleased with how immaculately clean the property was. Best stay we’ve ever had in Cornwall all these years! Love it!

Lovely accommodation, with immediate accessibility to Falmouth. This did however mean it was noisy at night - if you need windows open.

Well presented and equipped.

Would say that you need to plan to be in the accommodation often to warrant the cost. We were too busy doing.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Having everything Falmouth has to offer right on your doorstep is certainly one of the many advantages to staying at Slipway Loft. Being so close to the action does mean there is a risk of hearing associated noise, especially during peak times, so we do try to advertise this clearly on the property description so we hope it was what you were expecting. We hope we can welcome you back to Cornwall again soon. Katy, Customer Services.

Perfect location Stunning View Great bathrooms Beautiful Decoration

Poor welcome hamper (packet of biscuits) Cheapest most uncomfortable sofa ever sat on Should have tv in bedrooms

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It's great to see you enjoyed Slipway Loft, and the wonderful views it offers. We are sorry you were disappointed with the items left for you on arrival. Owners will provide some basic items to get you started; such as teabags, coffee, sugar, milk, some bin bags and a couple of other small bits. Some owners may provide additional items, but it really is down to the individual which we hope you can understand.

Your feedback regarding the sofa and having televisions in the bedrooms has been passed across to the owner for them to take into consideration for future improvements, so thank you for this. Things such as sofas are down to personal preference, so it is quite hard to find something that will suit all needs, but we will monitor comments about this moving forward. Katy, Customer Services.
