The Artists' Studio is located in a vibrant part of Falmouth with remarkable harbour views. The large windows are a fabulous viewpoint from which to people watch and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the town. Have a lazy breakfast watching Falmouth wake up as you sip your morning coffee or perhaps a night cap watching the town winding down again. See the sunrise or the rain roll in, the view is compelling in all weathers and at all times of day. The open plan kitchen and sitting room is a wonderful space for the whole family to relax in before enjoying the comfortable bedrooms. Two showers ensure that everyone can be ready in time to go out and enjoy their Falmouth holiday.

Located in the centre of Falmouth within walking distance to such a variety of restaurants and pubs, the most difficult decision will be where to eat your lunch or enjoy your evening meal. Perfectly placed to enjoy a boat trip from the pier, perhaps even hiring your own craft for an afternoon of fun on the water? Alternatively you could saunter up the high street, enjoying the shops and savouring the unique atmosphere of Falmouth. The train station is close by and with two parking spaces at the Artists' Studio, one could easily have a car free week by the sea. Falmouth's fabulous beaches are just a short stroll away as is the magnificent Pendennis castle. Should you find the time, the Helford river, the Lizard peninsula and the charming city of Truro are just a short drive away and well worth a day out.

PLEASE NOTE: There is some scaffolding present to the rear of The Artists Studio for external decorative and assessment works to take place up until early-mid June. Please contact our Customer Services Team with any queries before booking.

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.

Getting around

There is possibly no better place for a car-free holiday in Cornwall than Falmouth thanks to the town’s numerous public transport options. Catch the bus or train for connections with the rest of Cornwall or leave dry land behind as you hop aboard a ferry to St Mawes or Truro. Of course, if you fancy visiting via car, you’ll find plenty of parking at one of the town’s many car parks or you can use the park and ride service.

What our guests say...

We know how important honest reviews are when it comes to booking your holiday. To help you choose the right property for you, we publish all reviews left by guests who have stayed here in the past, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines. Please bear in mind that some facilities referred to by past guests in reviews can be removed or changed at any time.

Location is excellent, views are superb, apartment is very comfortable. This is our 2nd stay and we shall be back. The only small issue is the too small TV (32").

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. It's lovely to hear you had an excellent time returning to the studio, and that you plan to come back in the future - we look forward to welcoming you again! The owner had recently upgraded the television to the 32 size following guest feedback, so we are sorry that you felt this television to be small, but we appreciate that people have different preferences for things such as this. We will monitor feedback on this moving forward. Phoebe, Customer Services.

Excellent location, beautiful apartment, added benefit of parking and well equipt. Easy access to town and beaches. Lots of restaurants and pubs in vicinity. Direction and instructions were easy to follow.

We had a fabulous time in Falmouth and the Artist Studio was brilliantly situated and a stunning place to stay. The welcome gifts were well thought out and gratefully received. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. The beds too. We had 7 adults in our party and the Studio was large enough for us all to sit together on the huge sofa’s and eat together comfortably at the large table. Having two showers and the jacuzzi bath was great. The bath was an added bonus and well used. The booking was easy and the staff from Aspects couldn’t do enough to help. On the subject of noise from the next door pub/bar. It was ok. With the windows closed it became a dull background buzz. We would stay again.

We absolutely loved our stay here. Brilliant location, absolutely beautiful apartment and decor. We’re already looking to stay again next year!

I am a high frequency traveller and will rate the apartment on my top 3 due to a fantastic location, the customer service and the fact that i really felt the love and care the owners/cleaners took for the place prior to arrival. the considerate and high quality welcome gifts was just the cherry on cake

We couldn't fault the cleanliness of The Artist Studio and it exceeded our expectations regarding décor, comfort, facilities and the little touches like the welcome pack, books and games etc. made it stand out for us. The apartment is accessed via 3 flights of stairs, although not steep in incline as there is no lift it may not be suitable for those with limited mobility. The description provided in the pre booking details by Aspects Holiday is accurate. For location, both cars remained in the allocated parking for the the duration of the stay. Garage would fit a small size car. The proximity to shops, restaurants and beaches is excellent and you have the choice to travel further afield by train, the station is a short walk from apartment. During the late evening there is noise from the restaurant next door and traffic noise, this can be until 1am, if you are a light sleeper this maybe an issue, however did not bother us. We would highly recommend The Artist Studio and have already booked a return trip!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback and we are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your time here. The central location will not be for everyone, so we try to make the risk of noise and suitability given the number of stairs, as clear as we can, so that customers can make an informed choice. But for those who want to be in the heart of it all and enjoy those stunning views and a bit of people watching all from the comfort of a lovely apartment, The Artists' Studio is perfect! We are glad you liked it and hopefully we will see you back again. Tanya, Customer Services

Absolutely beautiful location and apartment! We loved it and would definitely recommend it. There is noise on the weekend from the pub beer garden next door (as described in the property information) but it wouldn’t put us off returning. An absolute gem of a place!

Perfect location with lovely views. The apartment's decor was very good and it was well equipped with everything we needed. The welcome pack was also very much appreciated. Great company to book with

Perfect stay in Cornwall. Location is excellent for everything you need in Falmouth. Apartment is lovely and furnished well, excellent facilities and views are outstanding. We will definitely be returning, thank you

Lovely decor, fab plants, spacious apartment with great views. Central location. Would recommend.

The Artist Studio is a fabulous apartment in a central location. Two parking spaces is a bonus for a large family. The property is welcoming and spacious with a well equipped living kitchen area with all the necessities for a comfortable stay. Only downside was the noise from the pub next door but if you can’t beat them join them and the food was lovely. Booking with Aspects was easy with very comprehensive instructions. The office dealt with every query effectively and efficiently, we only had one issue during our stay and they went above and beyond to rectify.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad that you enjoyed this fantastic apartment and that we were able to quickly help sort out that issue with the aerial. Being in such a central location and with original sash windows as opposed to more modern types, you may hear noise associated with nearby pubs, restaurants, and passers-by, so we try to make this as clear as possible within the description. We hope that this was what you had expected and that you enjoyed all the benefits of such a great location in the town. Tanya, Customer Services
