The Beacon

£507 - £1490 per week

Ideal for enjoying the sweeping sea vistas, the view from 'The Beacon' is truly spellbinding, whatever the weather, or the time of year. Kick back and relax with a hot chocolate as you watch the winter storms hurtle across the bay, or enjoy your morning coffee with the summer sun sparkling on the calm, blue sea. The Beacon Penthouse, with its balcony that runs along the front of the property, affords a gull's eye view of Falmouth Bay, so you can let the calming environment just wash over you, while you relax and recharge in this bright, stylish apartment with sea views from many of the rooms. Falmouth with its array of independent, and high street shops, is right on your doorstep and is a real haven for foodies.

This waterside apartment, with unrivalled sea views is perfect for just breathing in the fresh, sea air and watching the ferries meander over to Flushing and the Roseland, but it is also a wonderful base from which to explore Falmouth. Located at the top of the Old High Street, the shops and restaurants are just a stroll away. Buy fresh morning croissants from the local bakery or hop onto a boat trip from the pier. You can enjoy a car free holiday with all the amenities on your doorstep. Despite the peace and quiet on the balcony, The Beacon is just moments from the heart of Falmouth enabling one to absorb the vibrant atmosphere, maybe even joining in with one of Falmouth's many festivals.

You could book this apartment just for the views alone, but it is also in a fantastic location - close to all the amenities but quiet enough - and a comfortable base for exploring all Falmouth has to offer. Parking was a real bonus. We loved it. If you're planning a stay in Falmouth it would be hard to beat.

We found The Beacon welcoming and very comfortable. It had everything we needed for a very relaxing holiday. The location suited us. It is within easy walking distance of the town, harbour and seafront. The views from the property are superb. We are looking forward to a return visit.

The Beacon accommodation has everything you need. You will never get bored of the lovely view. The location is close to the town and is only a very short walk to all the amenities. You won't be let down if you were to stay here. It is up a short hill but don't be put off by that. And I must repeat how lovely the view is over the harbour. I really shouldn't be giving this such a good review as I will definitely be going again and know how the availability for this property is very limited because how lovely it is.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Beacon. The apartment was very well equiped and very comfortable and warm. The views from the apartment were fantastic, we were sad to leave them behind. We would certainly recommend a stay here.

Wonderful holiday at The Beacon in October. Mesmerising view whether first thing in the morning as the sun came up over the dockyards or in the evening as the light faded. Lots of light and space and we were keen to get back in the afternoon to enjoy drinks on the balcony. Of course we had to visit Flushing and St Mawes after seeing the ferries go back and forth all day. Both lovely days out for walking and lunch at the Pandora Inn in Mylor Bridge. Great choice of restaurants, pubs and shops in Falmouth and so colourful with all the art students adding a Bohemian feel.

The Beacon is a fantastic apartment for estuary views and close proximity to the town centre. The layout gives a very spacious feel to the place and the kitchen is very well stocked.

Wonderful view from the lounge and balcony. Very comfortable main bedroom. Lovely apartment. The apartment is at one end of the high street, most of the restaurants are at the other end. It is about a 10 /15 minute walk to them which could be a problem for some people.

We are a family of 4 and all had a really lovely time. Aspect Holidays are always great and the flat was in the most fantastic location with gorgeous views from the panoramic windows and balcony. It was in very easy reach of the town and the pier from where there is a whole array of boat trips available. It was clean, comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. We would definitely recommend this place and Aspect Holidays too.

Great location with spectacular views, however it does need some money spending on it

Great location in easy reach of all local amenities and superb views. Lovely apartment that was really well equipped and allowed us to have a lovely relaxing break.


Nice flat in a great location. Views from the balcony over the estuary and harbour are superb.

Sitting with glass in hand and watching the activity on the water below is mesmerising

brilliant views makes the perfect stay and in such a great location and the lift comes in handy too.would def go back again for sure and recommend to anyone really is a gem too stay in. Can not fault it and is well stocked with everything you need and more

Lovely week in The Beacon. Views are amazing, beds comfortable, kitchen amenities good, some of the apartment needs updating such as bathroom and shower.

The Beacon has a gorgeous view of Falmouth harbour, very suitable for a family or group of six. It has a good location with the benefit of off street parking. We climbed the stairs every day which was great for our fitness levels. The balcony runs the length of the property so I would recommend it for a family with older children. The kitchen was well stocked with the normal things you’d expect plus a washing machine and a dishwasher. Our family had a lovely holiday in Falmouth with its beaches, sea food and waterways.

We were extremely impressed with the property itself and the amazing view! It was in immaculate decorative order and the decoration and furnishings were of a high standard and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything that we needed. The lockable door to the balcony of the property was also comforting. We loved the position of the property in relation to the town. The large windows overlooking the harbour let in lots of light and so it was a real pleasure to just sit and watch the view and relax. We enjoyed our holiday very much, what a wonderful place to retreat to in these difficult times!
