Foxglove Cottage is located well for exploring Falmouth and the Helford. The wonderful gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan are within five miles and well worth a visit. A walk from either of these gardens down to the Ferryboat Inn at Helford Passage will be worth the walk too.
There is a family bathroom (bath with shower over) and two bedrooms; a double and a twin on the first floor and a guest WC and open plan sitting/dining room with kitchen on the ground floor.
Outside is a small patio area with barbecue that opens onto a communal lawn, and well maintained gardens in which to wander.
Foxglove is ideal for groups of friends or a family enjoying a traditional self-catering holiday in a great location.
Entrance Hall, open plan living with kitchen, dining and sitting room in which to relax. Separate cloakroom with WC. Stairs to first floor lead to two bedrooms, one double room and one twin bedroom and a family bathroom with bath with shower over.
Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbourside pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by the rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. Go there by car (15 miles) or take the passenger ferry from Falmouth (15 minutes).
Cornwall is a region full of history, culture and unique identity. So unique in fact that Cornwall has its very own language (Kernowek), flag (St Piran's Banner) and national anthem (Trelawney). In 2014 the UK government officially recognised the fine people of Cornwall as a national minority group, meaning that Cornish heritage and traditions now join the Irish, Scottish and Welsh as a protected Celtic group.
Cornwall is proudly known as the stunning setting of the popular BBC television series 'Poldark', starring Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson. Cornwall is also proud of its famous Cornish Pasty, but has another pastry dish to offer you, the Stargazy Pie! If you don't mind a few pilchards looking at you whilst you eat, then the Stargazy Pie is the pie for you. After a pasty or a pie, or both, you might fancy a pint and Cornwall has a great choice of locally produced beers to satisfy your thirst. Try an ale from the St Austell Brewery, Skinner's Brewery or the Rebel Brewing Company to name but a few of the fine ale producers in the region. Please remember to always drink responsibly.
Here are just a couple of the great Cornish attractions you could visit:
We hope you enjoy your break in Cornwall!
