The local train Station called ‘Falmouth Town’ is less than a 5 minute walk away. Newquay Airport is a 45 minute drive. A taxi is around £75 one way for 1 – 2 persons.
To the front of the house and just a minutes walk is the beach front where you can take your first holiday snap. From the beach front you can walk to your left and head towards Castle Beach located just below Pendennis Castle. It takes just a minute or two to get there. Pendennis Castle is permanently in sight along the headland and you can carry on uphill to the Castle and walk around its’ moat. The views from Pendennis Castle overlook The River Fal and St Mawes and also the bay to your right.
