Penmere Hotel in Falmouth – Pool, gym and restaurant.

The Greenbank Hotel: In Falmouth and is right next to the waterfront so very nice and quite close to Enys Garden. Unfortunately they have a booking 6th/7th June and have reserved 20 rooms until the end of Feb. However, some of these might then become available. I have reserved 8 rooms on Saturday 8th June and they have availability after this date. £206 Classic inland double, £289 classic harbour view, £324 family harbour view. Let me know if you wanted to reserve.

Self catering:

This company Classic Holiday also has a couple of places in Flushing too even for the weekend and many weekly options available. When you go to their page, select Cornwall then Falmouth. You can also select different dates but many of their places are Sat-Sat but some Fri-Fri, there are some where you can do the weekend. You can get through to someone quickly if you need to check anything with the booking.

‘Booking’ is good in that the cancellation policy is often offered at being quite near to the time of stay itself.

Airbnb finding their fees quite high and cancellation not always good however you can still sometimes find some gems.

Cornwall and the area Extra info:

There is a Sainsbury’s supermarkets in the Penryn/Falmouth area and various plastic free shops on Falmouth high street. There is Mylor fish shop in the village, open from about 9am – 1pm, but check their Facebook page for exact times and when they have been out fishing. (https://www.facebook.com/Mylorfishshop/). There is also a good fish shop called Seabourne Fish at Penryn. Both have wonderful crab and freshly landed fish.
If you would you like your food and drink shopping ready and waiting for you when you arrive… with a focus on local produce The Cornish Food Box Company to take the hassle out of the supermarket shop!
Cornish Food Box is an award winning grocery delivery service who supply a fantastic range of veg, meat, fish, seafood, bakery, deli, cheese and so much more!  You can order online at www.thecornishfoodboxcompany.co.uk or by calling 01872 211533.

Local pubs and restaurants, Flushing has a number of alternatives  – The Royal Standard is suppose the be good. The Harbour House is a more upmarket and has an interesting and tasty menu.
Pandorras Inn is apparently good and right on the waterfront.

Falmouth has some good restaurants, including Indidog, the Shack and Hooked on the Rocks for seafood, The Cove, Mine, and The Star and Garter, which are all excellent. The Hidden Hut (great food and location) at Porthcurnick Beach, Roseland Peninsula, is another fav. The Ferryboat Inn at the Helford Passage is also great. For breakfast/brunch Slice of Cornwall near Constantine is nice you either need to book ahead or you should be able to sit outside if you arrive without a booking. https://www.sliceofcornwall.com/

There are a couple of good local takeaways – for fish and chips, there is The Mariners at Penryn, and Harbour Lights in Falmouth.  The Bango Kitchen in Penryn does ‘Asian fusion’ – amazing Bao buns and sushi.  All need ordering ahead. You will find their contact numbers & menus online.

The Food Barn at Flushing is open on a Sat morning 9am-1pm.  It is a food market of local produce – freshly caught seafood and local meat, wonderful bakery and pastries, homemade cakes…etc

https://www.facebook.com/foodbarn.tregew/

There are many beautiful walks around but the coastal path is definitely a must particularly around the beautiful Helford river area. Here you can also find beaches full of seashells and good places to go for a dip! Visit Helford Passage and you can take a little passenger ferry to the other side of the river which is very picturesque too.

Recommended day trips the Lizard Peninsula (Kynance Cove is beautiful)  and the Helford area (The Shipwright’s Arms is a lovely pub – opposite side of the passage to Ferryboat Inn). The Eden Project,  St Michael’s Mount, The Minack Theatre (outdoor theatre on a cliff – spectacular), beaches on the Roseland Peninsula (Porthcurnick Beach with the Hidden Hut Café, Towan and Carne beaches are all lovely),

Cornwall is renowned for its beautiful gardens due to its temperate climate. Trelissick, Glendurgan, Trebah.  There is a wonderful sculpture park, garden and café called Tremenheere, which is near Penzance

Surf beach suggestions: The North coast is know for its wild craggy beaches and surf. Holywell Bay, Crantock and Gwithian or Godrevy. Porthtowan is also one of the closest and has lifeguards.  Surfboards and wetsuits can be hired – probably worth calling ahead. There is Tris Surf Shop at Porthtowan – 01209 890990. Praa Sands on the South Coast can also be very good in the right conditions.

A nice day trip is to take the Cornwall Ferries passenger ferry from Falmouth to St Mawes (Where Emmie and Tim got engaged!!), have a Cornish pasty or crab sandwich and an ice cream, a bit of a wander through the pretty village and a dip in their crystal clear waters, then ferry back again https://www.falriver.co.uk/ferries or river trips up to Trelissick Gardens with Enterprise Boats.

Falmouth- If you are in Falmouth there is a lovely high street with galleries and independent shops, lots of cafes and restaurants. For lunch we like Sabzi’s Middle Eastern salads.
