About the neighbourhood
From Falmouth there are several wonderful gardens to visit which are within a short 20 minute drive, the tropical garden of Trebah which has its own beach, Glendurgan with a puzzling maze and Treliisick.

You can go on coastal walks where there are beach cafes at each cove to help you on your way and you can catch a local bus back.

The historical city of Truro with a beautiful Cathedral can be visited by boat or car.

Within Falmouth there is a good Art Museum , the National maritime museum and Pendennis Castle. The town is very picturesque with a narrow winding high street with many cafes and restaurants. There is also a harbour where you can watch the boats go by and enjoy the food and drink from one of the local public houses.

Your holiday can be as relaxing or active as you wish it...

As the house is so close to Falmouth town and Gylly beach you can spend your holiday just walking to different parts of Falmouth. There are also lovely boat trips to St Mawes, Helford River and Truro these all go from Falmouth.

How to get there
Airport: Newquay: 50.0 km
Railway: Falmouth: 0.5 km
Road or rail there is a station 0.5 km away.

The roads to Cornwall are much improved there is only 1 small single carriageway section over Dartmoor. On the saturday before Easter it only took five and a half hours having left waford at 6:15. The secret is to leave early on peak Saturdays and only have brief stops. We travel on the M4 to Bristol, M5 to Exeter and then A30 and A39 to Truro.
