However you will not find availability listings for this space on this site - call Joy,the Owner/manager, direct on 01326 319559.)
Mariner's Chart was built in 1910 when the garden led down to the seafront and glorious Gyllyngvase Beach.Now just one road back, it has excellent views to enjoy.
You really can leave the car in the drive - you won't need it - everything from high quality beach front hotel bars to harbour inns and restaurants (Rick Stein too!)are close to hand. The children can kayak, pitch and put, bounce on the bouncy castle at family modest Swanpool Beach with it's own Nature Reserve.
Falmouth enjoys a micro climate and hence supports wonderful and exotic Palms and plants.

The micro climate is unique and hosts tropical flora and fauna; there are Listed Gardens in abundance and clifftop and rural walks to take the breath away! There are beaches to suit everyone whether you enjoy surfing, kayaking, wining and dining in excellent beach side gourmet bars, bar-be-ques on the beach or simply searching amongst the rockpools or sunning on the sands.....and there are several summer dog-friendly beaches too.

Visit Trebah Gardens; take the children to Flambards for a fun day out on roller coasters et al; visit the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek; the train to St. Ives for fabulous coastal views and enjoy - amongst a million other things! - Falmouth's bijou cinema or Truro's multi screen - the Plaza - or see at show at the theatre Truro's Hall for Cornwall.
There is a golfcourse at Swanpool - a short drive away - and tennis courts by the beach close to the house. And if you really must swim indoors, then the relatively new Leisure complex on Pendennis Point is for you!
