Pocket Guide: Falmouth

Falmouth hotels

It’s hard to imagine a more stunning setting for your Cornish coastal hotel than Falmouth.

Falmouth hotels are nestled close to where the broad river Fal is embraced by the English Channel. Green hills and deep blue waters provide the background to the town’s cobbled lanes, traditional pubs and trendy cafes.

This is an ideal base for exploring Cornwall's southern coast and when you return to Falmouth, you’ll find plenty of welcoming bars and bistros, three magnificent beaches and the nation's best maritime museum to explore.

Falmouth is, no doubt, kept on its toes by the students at Falmouth University in nearby Penryn, and this means it never becomes the sleepy seaside town that other places have.

The excellent museum is pretty much all that remains of Falmouth’s glory days of the 19th century, when it made its fortunes thanks to maritime trade. The water that lies offshore here is the third-deepest natural harbour in the world, and it has seen more than its fair share of tea clippers, trading vessels and mail boats pulling in. However, the dockyard cranes that can be seen towards Pendennis Point still bear testament to Falmouth’s importance in the ship repair industry.

Choosing your hotel in Falmouth

You are spoilt for choice, as well as beaches, when it comes to booking a hotel in Falmouth. You can stay in a traditional inn in the heart of the cobbled streets of the town, or opt for a luxury guesthouse right on one of the beaches.

If you are looking for some peace and quiet, or a place to recuperate after your walks along the Cornish coast, there are a number of luxury and spa hotels that can be found in the beautiful rolling hills that surround Falmouth. The spa hotels are set in gorgeous grounds and are ideal for those looking for a romantic break in Cornwall.

For those on a budget there is some perfectly located beachside accommodation courtesy of guesthouses, bed and breakfasts and a few 2 star hotels. Also available, just outside Falmouth, is the option of a hostel.

Family-friendly hotels are plentiful, and offer large rooms and flexibility in providing extra beds, alongside play areas outside or a playroom inside.

When to book your hotel in Falmouth

There’s always something happening in Falmouth. All year round, you’ll find historic events at the Poly, National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle. Shows and gigs are held at the Princess Pavilion and there are artistic exhibitions and workshops at Falmouth Art Gallery. Similarly, whenever you book you’ll be likely to catch the weekly Falmouth farmers’ market on the Moor.

In March, the Spring Flower Show has been held for more than 100 years and offers glorious displays of locally grown flowers. Falmouth Spring Festival also celebrates the season’s colour with a string of events that include a Folk and Cider Fayre.

In May, the 10-day Fal River Festival offers performances, street food, swimming competitions, arts and heritage. Hot on its heels comes the annual regatta in Falmouth, and the action stays in the water for Falmouth Week in August, which sees six days of match racing for keelboats, traditional craft and dinghies.

October sees the Falmouth Oyster Festival, which celebrates the start of the oyster dredging season with culinary treats and live music performances.

Things to do from your hotel in Falmouth

Falmouth is justifiably famous for its beaches, but it’s also a historian’s delight. The two castles nearby, Pendennis and St Mawes, were built by Henry VIII as he fortified the south of England.

The best thing to do with all that glorious coastal countryside around you is to get out and explore it. Falmouth is on the Southwest Coast Path, which means there are some excellent walks right on your doorstep.

If, however, you want to get another perspective on the coast there are also a number of regular boat trips that will take you across the Fal to surrounding villages, and towards either Truro or Helford.

Back at your Falmouth hotel you’ll find, hidden among those cobbled streets, some delightful shops. There is a good range of shops for surfers around Market Street, and Cornish crafts and gifts can be found around Church Street.
