A varied landscape, that contains dramatic cliffs and pounding surf along the north coast and hidden coves, hamlets and estuaries to the south, historic villages, a thriving local food and art scene, exotic gardens, wonderful sailing, surfing and rock pooling, a sense of history and community, all of which combines to offer the visitor a real sense of escape and well being.
What's more, Falmouth is perfectly positioned to sample all of these things.

"Wonderful stay in a beautiful & well appointed apartment."
We arrived at 10pm on a wet & windy night. Entry instructions very clear & saved a lot of hassle. The biscuits in the welcome pack (tea, coffee & milk too) were eaten not long arrival. A nice touch. Beautifully appointed apartment - just perfect for 3 adults. Lovely & close to town & theharbour & a short stroll to the nearest beach. No time for shopping as we had come to see the newest arrival to the family but town itself is full of lovely independent shops.
I would say that I have high expectations of the places I choose to stay in & happily pay extra for quality. I would happily stay here again & I would have no hesitation in recommending Sea Escapes. Great value too.
