Falmouth Hotels

Falmouth is a welcoming port town set on the rocky green coast of Cornwall. It boasts long stretches of soft silky sands, secret glistening coves and winding streets infused with the scintillating smells of simmering fish and perfect home-cooked pasties. The town proffers from an intriguing history, dating back to the 16th century - which is evident in its bold-grey castle. Falmouth also has a university which focuses on the arts, bringing a youthful academic vibe to the town.

Things to see

Falmouth’s streets, lined with Georgian white-stone townhouses and towering copper-spired churches, provide majestic architectural marvels of their own, but Falmouth’s crowning construct is undoubtedly Pendennis Castle, a domineering silver-grey defensive fort commissioned by Henry VIII. The castle is a short walk from central Falmouth, set on a smooth green slope overlooking the shimmering blue sea waters. Below the castle, the first of Falmouth’s 5 gold-flecked beaches begins to arch around the headland. These beaches are popular with tourists and surfers alike, their soft sands being ideal for sunbathers and their radical waves too tempting for thrill-seekers. Walk toward the centre by way of the mesmerising, bustling bay, which is filled with red-washed fishing boats. For an afternoon of culture and history, visit the National Maritime Museum and Falmouth Art Gallery, before unwinding at one of the chic seafood restaurants along the waterfront.

Hotels in Falmouth

Falmouth provides a small selection of stupendous 4-star hotels, which offer first class service, sublime rooms with king-sized beds, heavenly bar lounges and opulent grassy grounds studded with pink and yellow flowers. However, Falmouth is renowned for its plentiful supply of guesthouses and lodges. These are set in the large, stately Georgian townhouses, hidden away within the quiet streets and overlooking the unblemished beachfront. The guesthouses range from lavish luxury to modest, affordable comfort, but either way, the hosts will be warmly welcoming and the central location is incredibly convenient.

Where to stay

Staying just south of the centre, beside Cliff Road, makes for a quieter, more relaxed getaway with immediate access to one of Falmouth’s most pristine leisure beaches, which adjoins the rejuvenating coastal path, an idyllic walkway boasting crystal-clear panoramic views. Staying north of the centre means that you’ll be a little distance from the beaches, but right in the middle of Falmouth’s refined, relaxed nightlife, which offers fine-dining restaurants and cosy fire-lit taverns. The High Street is also a short walk away, and is lined with independent boutiques and artsy antique stores.

How to get to Falmouth

Falmouth Town railway station is charmingly small and centrally located, offering daily services to Truro via the Maritime Line, a magical stretch of railroad that trundles along viaducts, over emerald fields and beside the dazzling sea. Truro then offers round-the-clock connecting services north throughout the rest of England. Falmouth also rests at the end of the A39, a long, speedy road through the vast countryside that connects Falmouth to the city of Bath. Falmouth’s size makes it an ideal walking or bicycling city, but reliable bus services also operate regular services.
