Description from owner

The Lower Deck is perfect for people who want beaches and amenities within a few minutes walking distance. Castle beach and the seafront are just five minutes walk away, a few minutes further takes you to the popular Gyllingvase beach with its renowned cafe/restaurant. Alternatively, 5 minutes walk in the opposite direction takes you to the harbour with it's pretty yachts and the famous Maritime Museum, as well as the shops, restaurants, cafes and summer attractions of Events Square. Also ideal for parents who are visiting students at Falmouth University.

Although it forms the basement of the main house, The Lower Deck has the large windows that you would expect from a Victorian building and consequently feels light and airy inside, with lovely views of its own separate garden. It is approached through its own gate down a set of wide stone steps, with flowerbeds, lawn and a seating area.

The Cornwall region

Cornwall has a mild climate where palm trees thrive and fields of daffodils bloom as early as February. Summer often begins here as early as April. We often enjoy some of our best sunshine in May and June, when the area is also less busy, although you will need to wait until July for the sea temperatures to rise significantly!

However, wetsuits are now more affordable and the large population of surfers enjoy the waves all year round.

The unspoilt coastline with its many coves and beaches, alongside beautiful countryside have made it a popular holiday destination for many years.

The South coast is gentle, backed by lush, green hillsides and wild flowers, while the North coast is a surfer's paradise with more rugged, dramatic cliffs, dotted with the tin mines of the past.

There are coastal paths all around the county, with breathtaking views, as well as wonderful gardens to visit such as Trelissick, Glendurgan, Trebah and many others including the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the world famous Eden Project.

Other places of interest include St Michael's Mount, the famous open-air, cliff side theatre at Minack, the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, the Poldark Mine, as well as many other attractions such as Flambards, Dairyland and of course Land's End.

Falmouth

Falmouth is the 3rd largest natural harbour in the world and is guarded by the impressive castles of St Mawes and Pendennis, built by Henry VIII. It still has fascinating working docks, where you can often see cruise ships, naval boats or ferries, in addition to the marina areas full of smaller yachts and launches. Local ferries take you to Flushing, St Mawes or up to Truro and fishing trips or 'ocean safaris' can be booked from the piers.

It has four lovely beaches within walking distance:-

Castle beach- popular with locals and great for rockpooling

Gyllyngvase Beach- attended by lifeguards for safe swimming, with a volley ball net and great cafe/restaurant.

Swanpool Beach- more pebbly but with a selection of watersports available, crazy golf course and beach cafe with fantastic speciality ice creams.

Maenporth Beach- a very gently shelving sandy bay where you can actually park on the edge of the sand. It also has a beach cafe and a renowned restaurant, The Cove, just across the road.

However, it is also a bustling town with a wide range of interesting shops to explore, selling everything from clothing to souvenirs and on Saturdays there are often seasonal markets.It's very easy to while away an hour or two 'pottering along' in the town.

Should you encounter some of our 'liquid sunshine', the Maritime Museum is a surprisingly fascinating place to while away several hours, as are the castles at Pendennis and St Mawes. Or if you are feeling more energetic, Ships and Castles leisure centre has a pool with a wave machine and flume as well as a gym. If you are looking for a more relaxing activity, why not visit the pool and spa treatments at St. Michael's Hotel on the seafront. Alternatively take a look around the Arts centre or view a film at the Poly, visit the multi-screen cinema for latest releases or try your hand at ten pin bowling in Ocean Bowl. For golfers, there is a spectacular cliff top golf course in Falmouth, or for those with less experience, a fun pitch and put course or crazy golf at Swanpool. Finally, the coastal walks in the area can be enjoyed from our doorstep and provide breathtaking scenery, whatever the weather or season.

The town is full of restaurants, bars, and coffee shops, with something to suit every taste (Italian, Chinese, Indian, Fusion cooking and lots of fresh fish and local produce). Whatever your budget, you will find choices, from the best fresh fish and chips or a pasty, to pizzas, or fine dining experiences. Rick Stein has also opened a new fish and chip restaurant and take-away here, complete with a seafood restaurant, just 5 minutes stroll from the apartment.

No need to visit an out of town supermarket, (although there is a large ASDA on the ring road and a local Sainsburys), everything can be bought locally. There are good butchers, a fresh fishmonger and greengrocers, two Tesco stores in the town,(one only 5 minutes walk away, with late opening times), great fresh bakeries, delis and a selection of different pasty shops! We even have a Marks and Spencers in the town. Falmouth really does have everything you need on the doorstep!

There are often interesting events going on in the town, especially in 'Falmouth Week' 8th- 17th August, when there are parades, fireworks, sailing regattas and different party nights with visiting bands- lots of fun- not to be missed. In May there is the Fal River Festival which has a range of music, dance and arts events. In June, there is the Sea Shanty Festival. In October, the town also has an oyster festival with tastings, cookery demonstrations and market stalls. At Swanpool beach there is often a drive-in movie night during the summer and fireworks over the bay in November. Finally, Falmouth is proud to be selected as the host town for the 2014 Tall Ships race in September. Book early to ensure a chance to witness this exciting event, last hosted in 2008.

Winter breaks mean you can take advantage of the offers on at many of our local restaurants and enjoy the sights of Cornwall without the summer crowds. Be prepared for any weather- our winters are invariably mild and we have often enjoyed an al fresco pub lunch in January or February, in bright sunshine wearing a very light fleece! April and May are often warm and sunny with the benefit of fewer crowds and the lighter evenings to enjoy. September is also quieter than the summer months but you can often still enjoy lovely weather.

Falmouth is a really lively, interesting town, all year round and a perfect base from which to explore the rest of Cornwall.

“Perfectly located, beautifully decorated with kind and friendly owners”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2014

This charming apartment is ideally located between the beaches and the centre of Falmouth. It is very well equipped with everything you may need for your stay. It also includes lots of lovely extras such as a cream tea to welcome you to Cornwall as well as a very informative manual with lots of really good recommendations. The apartment is immaculately clean and you can tell by the decor that the owners have put a lot work and effort into making this a wonderful place to stay. Although we didn't use the garden during our stay we could image that it would be the perfect spot for sipping a cocktail as the sun goes down in the Summer. We would highly recommend it. Thank you to Lynne & Nigel

“Excellent”

Reviewed 22 Jan 2014

Clean, cosy, and ideal location. Just a short walk from the shops, harbour, castle and beaches. Owners very friendly and attentive. Beautifully decorated, good value for money and perfect for a short break in Falmouth. I highly recommend this property and would book again.

“Happy Days!”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2013

Always a little wary when booking on line, however needn't have worried as The Lower Deck met all expectations. On arrival the cream team and flowers were very welcoming especially after our long journey, ... great location ... no more than 10 mins into the town centre and 5 mins to the railway station. It was great to leave the car and visit Truro Cathedral by rail and St Mawes Castle by ferry. The car was used only once when we re-visited The Eden Project. Pendennis Castle and The Maritime Museum are well worth a visit. We enjoyed fish and chips at Rick Stein's fish restaurant. We had sunnys days and it was good to relax at the end of our day in the garden area with a glass of wine ... this was one of the most relaxing holidays we have experienced in a few years as it felt like home. Thank you.

“Ideal apartment for two in a great location.”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2012

Had a wonderful holiday. The apartment was very comfortable, clean and in the most ideal location for not only local amenities, but also to explore the surrounding area. We would like to thank Nigel and Lynne Bagg for their welcome and hospitality.

“Everything we had hoped for”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2012

We spent a lovely week at The Lower Deck - despite the very wet weather - the accommodation was everything we had hoped for - very comfortable,pretty and cosy - we had a very bad journey down to Cornwall - we travelled on the day of heavy flooding in Dorset and Devon - so it was lovely to arrive and find a beautiful cream tea awaiting us - and the sun decided to pop out for a few minutes to enable us to eat our tea in the very pretty garden

“Lovely Apartment, Great Location”

Reviewed 28 May 2012

We stayed in the Lower Deck in May 2012. Even before we arrived I knew it would be lovely as the owners, Lynne and Nigel, had been extremely accomodating in letting us begin our stay on a day which was not their usual changeover day (other owners had been rigid on this point). We were not disappointed. On arrival there was a welcome tray waiting for us with a cream tea and fresh flowers. As it was our honeymoon there was also a card and a bottle of bubbly! The apartment itself is lovely, compact but it has everything you need. The kitchen looked great but we hardly used it as there are so many restaurants nearby! The bed was very comfy and the shower was wonderful - lots of pressure and limitless hot water. There are an array of books, films and some games in case you get bad weather. There is a pretty garden. The apartment is in a fantastic location for the beaches and the centre of town (where there are so many lovely restaurants we could have eaten in a different one every night for a fortnight - we particularly recommend the taster menu at Samphire). We didn't have a car so this was crucial. The apartment is also near the train station and this opens up a lot of Cornwall to you - St Ives, Truro, Penzance. We had a wonderful stay. Thanks Lynne and Nigel.

“Delightful, cosy apartment - a home from home with a fantastic warm welcome.”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2011

The Lower Deck is a lovely apartment, situated in a quiet residential street, but within 5 minutes walk from the centre of Falmouth which has a host of bars and restaurants to choose from - you are spoilt for choice. The owners live in the house above and gave us a wonderful warm welcome, with fresh flowers and a cream tea waiting for us when we arrived. Falmouth is a fantastic location and there are lots of places you can visit from there - our favourites were the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, St Ives, Fowey, Lizard Point, Bodmin Jail (bizarre - had a lovely bar and restaurant, then you go through a door to the cells!), St Michael's Mount (care - the road and steps up are very uneven) to name but a few. Restaurants in Falmouth are plenty and we particularly liked Pizza Express (Gorgeous view of the harbour) and the Ming Garden. The Quayside Inn does nice Sunday lunches and is a good place to go for a drink. We'd like to thank Lynne and Nigel for being so welcoming and helpful during our stay and look forward to going back for another visit someday.
