The Crow's Nest
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The Crow's Nest is a holiday location with spectacular marine views, ideally located for the town centre, harbour and beaches. Harbourside is a nineteenth century, terraced town house located in a Conservation Area. The Crow's Nest is located on the third and fourth floors of Harbourside. Historically, this terrace was the home of captains of the Packet Ships, wealthy merchants and business people of Falmouth.
The fact that panoramic views of Falmouth Harbour towards Pendennis Castle, across to the village of Flushing and the Roseland Peninsula, with its twin castle of St Mawes can be enjoyed from The Crow's Nest, explains why the wealthy of the past chose this location. It now could be your holiday destination!
The Crow's Nest location provides easy access to Falmouth town, the start of which is less than 200 metres away form the front door! The town boasts a wide range of pubs, shops and restaurants just a short walk away - forget the car and taxises after an evening out they are not a requirement.

The West Country region
Cornwall is beautiful and a wonderful holiday destination!
Cornwall's scenery is a north - south divide. The north coast with its wild, dramatic Atlantic coastline is more favourable to those seeking adrenaline sports like surfing, windsurfing, sailboarding - you get the picture! The idyllic south coast has a much gentler and romantic atmoshere, its lush green meandering coastline, 'Gulf Stream' waters and sub-tropical gardens and historical, literal and artistic links reinforce this feel. With its countless sheltered coves the Fal and Helford area are a supberb location for fishing, boating and sailing enthusiasts.
Cornwall's wonder is its timelessness, its isolation and geography is its charm. Much of its past is still present and Cornwall's history is one of its key attractions. Its also part of your history - how many remember long car journeys as children to that magical destination! Communication links are now very different. Yes times have changed - but not that much. Come and check it out!
Falmouth is home to the country's maritime heritage hence its now the home to The National Maritime
The town is brimming with a bustling shopping thoroughfare, cafes, cinema, restaurants and a profusion of indepently owned shops with a few nationals notablly Marks and Spencers with a good food hall! Antique hunters are well served - the antique shops of the High Street in Falmouth are 200 metres away- always ask for 'price for trade'.
There are many wonderful beaches on this coast the majority of which are readily accessible. Some can only be reached by a challenging hike! But the reward is out-wayed by the effort.
Falmouth has been for decades a yachtsman's dream offering world class sailing waters. An Olymic Gold medalist's learnt skills in this area. World Champion gig racers live in Falmouth. The Crow's Nest boasts close yachting contacts literally overlooking the shore based Royal Cornwall Yachting Headquarters.
Those with a passion for diving can find support from Cornish Divers (01326 311265).
The waters on this coast are littered with the wrecks of past storms and the infamous actions of the wreckers of wilder times! Water transport provided by ferries and pleasure boats allow easy and relaxing access to the beautiful secluded creeks of the area even Frenchman's Creek is only a few nautical miles away.
Families have a large range of attractions within easy access - Flamards - the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek - Goonhilly Earth Station - numerous National Trust properties and gardens and the Eden project are a few to mention.
The coast path is easily accessable and public transport links can be used to avoid that repeat walk to return to the haven of The Crow's Nest and a cup of tea or glass of ............................
Regular passenger ferry trips make Flushing and St Mawes readily accessible all year round. In the summer a range of boat trips allow for a leisurely and relaxing exploration of the harbour, estuaries, creeks and bays allowing you a car free and environmentally friendly holiday.
Falmouth is reowned for its internationally famous sailing waters, fine sandy beaches and beautifully located golf course. The National Maritime Museum, together with spectacular coastal walks, historical castles and sub-tropical gardens nearby, makes The Crow's Nest an ideal holiday destination.

Fantastic little apartment over looking the sea front. Very comfortable, very clean and very homely. Within minutes of walking to Falmouth centre so is ideal to explore. Owners are very nice too and welcomed us with open arms. All in all an excellent place to stay and highly recommended to everyone :-)

"Crow's Nest, Falmouth- Not to be missed."
Having 'found' Falmouth about 10 years ago, we have stayed in several holiday properties in and around the area. This was the final property we stayed in and haven't looked back since. It is the top apartment in a three storey, Victorian house situated on a road overlooking Falmouth Harbour. The apartment is a duplex,self contained dwelling which benefits from the magnificent views, either from the living room or the large attic double bedroom. It is furnished and decorated to a high standard and contains everything you will need for a relaxing holiday for up to four people.
The property is just a few minutes stroll into the town which contains some well know high street stores, designer shops, variety of restaurants, traditional pubs and much, much more.
Crow's Nest can tend to get booked up well in advance so it is worth booking right away if your selected week is available. June is our favourite month and we always book 12 months ahead to make sure we get our preferred week.
One time we decided to book a different month only to find Crow's Nest was already booked. Were we disappointed?- Yes & No. Fisherman's Haven was available so we booked that instead. Fisherman's Haven is the middle flat of the property which is also excellent (see our review of that property too).
The owners go out of their way to ensure you have a good experience leaving you a welcoming gift of fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and biscuits. There is even a bottle of milk in the fridge so you can enjoy a refreshing 'cuppa' after your long journey.
Don't miss out on Crow's Nest, you will not regret it.

Comfortable, well decorated and maintained accommodation with quirky original features. Whilst there were only two of us, there was plenty of room for four and the twin bedded room would be perfect fo… More
Thank you for your kind comments.
Parking is free as you say on the roads around the property.
We also have some secure parking in a garage 150 metres from the apartment which can be booked in advance at an additional cost of £16 per week.

"Perfect in every way"
Great position with fab views over the water and close proximity to Falmouth town.A spotlessly clean, extremely well appointed and tastefully decorated apartment with everything you need in the kichen and elsewhere. This fitted the bill perfectly for our weekend away.
