The Anchorage - Falmouth

£487 - £1428 per week

The Anchorage is a beautiful, traditional cottage in a quiet street with exceptional harbour views, but still only moments from the bustle of Falmouth's award winning old high street. It offers luxurious accommodation with stylish furnishings and a chic, modern kitchen. A glorious bolthole in which to truly kick back and relax after a busy day exploring. The contemporary interior complements the traditional cottage wonderfully, creating a tranquil ambience so you can really get away from it all.

The outdoor areas are perfect spaces to relax with a coffee and a good book before starting your day's adventures. The Anchorage is hard to leave but if you can tear yourself away, Falmouth is just a short walk away with an exciting mix of shops and restaurants to enjoy. The nearby pier provides boat trips out to sea or along the River Fal or the Helford Passage. The Anchorage is the ideal base from which to pack a picnic and spend the day at one of Falmouth's stunning beaches just relaxing or perhaps hiring a paddleboard or kayak. There are often local festivals to join in with, such as the famous sea shanty festival, or the popular oyster festival for a unique Falmouth experience.

Holidays in Falmouth

Situated on the coast, Falmouth benefits from four beautiful beaches, including one Blue Flag beach, Gyllyngvase Beach. The seaside town is home to the popular National Maritime Museum Cornwall, the historic Pendennis Castle, a selection of tropical gardens and a plethora of attractions to keep you entertained throughout your stay.

Holiday in Falmouth and experience ‘car free’ days out, enjoying transport links from the town by bus, rail and boat. Visitors can take pleasure boat cruises around the Fal estuary or along the beautiful Helford River. Take the ferry to Truro or St Mawes, and you’ll be able to experience the beautiful scenery along the way.

Many people visit Falmouth for the breath-taking scenery and tropical gardens, and with four major gardens in Falmouth and a further three close by, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

From Falmouth, you can also enjoy many boating activities, including shark fishing, sailing, sea safaris and water sports; a boater’s paradise!

A lovely stay at The Anchorage. Nicely decorated, homely feel and lovely views. A short walk into town. We all really enjoyed Falmouth - we will be back again.

Excellent location. Very comfortable furnishings. Great kitchen appliances and good size dining room. Overall superb experience. Would definitely re book.

Gorgeous cottage, spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped with lovely outside eating & relaxing areas. Good location only 5 mins walk into town and harbour. 15 walk mins to beach.

A wonderful place that exceeded all our expectations. The views were phenomenal and super close to the town centre for walking and some nearby pubs and restaurants. Will definitely be returning.

Lovely property, great view, highly recommended ??

Lovely house and great break. Really like Falmouth

Fabulous property with sea views. Bright, airy and well appointed. Quiet location but literally a 5 minute walk to the centre of Falmouth. Parking is not guaranteed, however we did manage to park outside most of the time or spaces could be found in nearby streets. Would highly recommend and would stay again.
