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 Maenporth 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

Lovely apartment with lots of space and everything you need for a relaxing break. We would book again.

Lovely apartment, spacious and comfy. Great location, nice and quiet with a lovely beach just a walk away. Lovely view, Would definitely stay again.

This is a gem of an apartment that is stunning and absolutely huge! The pictures really do not do Fantasea justice.

The living area is gorgeous, with two large comfy sofas, lovely to sprawl out on after a day in the sun. The washer room was a nice surprise and the perfect place to pop your luggage out of sight. The two bedrooms were clean and bright, with ample bedding and lots of hanging space/hangers in the wardrobes. The bathrooms are clean and modern with fresh towels galore.

The kitchen is really well equipped and everything appears to have been thought about. Just lovely.

The beach is a mere three minute walk from the apartment with the beach cafe being the perfect place for a breakfast or lunch.

The road up to the apartment can be tricky as this is really narrow, and only suitable for one car, though plenty of little layby's to nip into. Just go really slow!

The welcome gift was a treat! Thank you.

Hoping to come back next year. Just fabulous!

Thank you for the welcome gift pack. Fantasea is a spacious comfortable flat for a party of four. There is a sea view at distance. The lift was very useful as one of our party has mobility problems. Good to have a balcony although it needed a clean up as quite cobwebby. The car parking space for the flat is in a corner and we found it was quite tight for our car particularly when the user of the adjoining space parked on the dividing line. Nice to be able to walk down to the beach but only £3 all day parking if you want to take the car.

Superb, spacious, clean and comfortable apartment. Welcome pack was a lovely touch, with tasty locally sourced treats. Comfortable beds and furnishings. All possible equipment and appliances on hand. Nice location with parking spot very handy, but certainly leans towards people that don't mind a hike up and down the steep hill to the beach and around the costal paths! Would certainly recommend and found the whole process of booking, accessing and departing very easy. Aspects team were also great!

Lovely apartment. Very spacious and clean. Excellent location. Would highly recommend.

Lovely apartment bigger than it looks in the photos, next to excellent beach ideal for swimming and SUP. Coastal path on the door step for walking into Falmouth, finding other beaches and the hotel Meudon for food and drinks. NETFLIX and other streaming services available on the TV with your login.

This was our 3rd visit to Fantasea and we love it there. It's a modern, spacious apartment with enough space to actually live in and the interior is comfortable and smart. Unlike many holiday lets, the dedicated parking space outside is a big bonus, as is the proper utility room for sorting out beach stuff after a day out. As always with Aspects, everything is clean and well presented. Recent improvements at the property include comfier beds and blazing fast internet.

Maenporth beach is a five minute walk over the field, it's great for families as its clean, sheltered and has plenty of shallow water for kids to play. It seems really popular with the locals too, there is a good beach cafe, and parking is only £2 for the day if you don't fancy the walk.

If you like to head out of the door and have instant access to a wide choice of pubs, shops and restaurants then this place is probably not for you. If, however, you like to be able to go out walking or heading down to the beach in wetsuits the moment you spot the sun coming out then its ideal and highly recommended.

Large spacious apartment within easy driving / walking distance of Falmouth. Great balcony which does have some coastal views. The location is uphill from Maenporth beach (worth noting for walking purposes). Handy location for driving the other way down the coast towards Lizard to visit the many beautiful bays & beaches.

A really lovely apartment a scenic short walk away from Maenporth (uphill on the way back!) and short drive to Swanpool, Gylly Beaches and Falmouth. A perfect retreat, great location and loved our stay,

Fantastic location, lovely clean apartment with plenty of room for 4. Short walk to a stunning beach. Cannot wait to come back.

We absolutely loved Fantasea as an apartment to stay at. Had everything we needed, and more. Stunning views, perfect location with a short walk to the beach. Everything was well organised by Aspect Holidays. Couldn't fault a thing.

A beautifully furnished and comfortable apartment. From the small balcony there were lovely views of the sea and across the cove. Maanporth Beach is about ten minutes walk and has a lovely little cafe. Apart from The Cove Restaurant which was closed due to Covid, there are no other restaurants within easy walking distance but this didn’t bother us. We ate in several times after pre dinner drinks on the balcony. Perfect !

Lovely apartment close to Maenporth beach. Well equipped and very roomy. Would definitely recommend and hope to return

Nice spacious apartment with sea glimpses and surrounded by trees, so lots of birds including owls. Every convenience and good access and easy parking.

Lovely apartment. Great location near beautiful cove.

Beautiful accommodation in fabulous location. Everything we needed was there and lots to do nearby. We had terrible weather but it didn’t spoil it and we would definitely stay again.

Fantastic location, almost with it's own beach. We loved the apartments tastefully done coastal theme and the balcony provided some welcome outdoor space. Uncluttered and well equipped, we would definitely return.

Fantasea is a great place to stay. It's very spacious, quiet, very clean, and a great location. We loved our holiday to Cornwall and would highly recommend Fantasea as a place to stay.

We really enjoyed our week at Fantasea, this was our second visit in less than a year. It's a modern, comfortable apartment in a quiet spot with plenty of space for a family of four. The parking space is also a welcome bonus.

The location is great if you like beaches - just a five minute walk down the hill to Maenporth or 15 minutes the other way along the coast path to Bream Cove. Swan Pool and Gyllyngvase are only a short drive away.

Overall we'd recommend Fantasea to those seeking a relaxing beach holiday in a quiet location.
