The Beacon Falmouth

£478 - £1400 per week
Book
 

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.

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.

July 2020

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!
