Cornwall Living 2018

Our choice of Cornish get-aways

Each issue Cornwall Living searches the length and breadth of Cornwall to find you the best Cornish retreat. This month we have found three we think you will love in Falmouth, Mullion Cove and Rock.

Land Ahoy
Rock, on the north Cornwall coast has become synonymous with luxury. Often the holiday destination of choice for celebrities and politicians, it is not surprising that 5 Gull Rock is one of the most sought after holiday properties in the area. Managed by Perfect Stays, who offer exclusive and handpicked accommodation, 5 Gull Rock is a stylish residence.

A true ‘grand design’, Gull Rock has an impressive open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room area with bi-fold doors that open out onto an impressive decking area. The addition of beautiful bedrooms and stunning en-suites ensure your stay will be more than comfortable.

Fantastic restaurants are never far away. A short water taxi ride will take you to Padstow and all it has to offer or stay closer to home with a visit to the michelin starred Nathan Outlaw at the St Enodoc Hotel.

Going Aloft

The sound of the waves, call of the seagulls and tales of smugglers make a stay in Mullion Cove a true Cornish experience. The picturesque harbour, completed in 1895, was built to provide a safe-haven for fishermen from the winter gales, and now gives shelter to the cottages that surround the harbour.

Cornish Cottages is delighted to have Fisherman’s Loft on the books. The first floor apartment is nestled in a row of cottages at the top of the slipway. Its dual aspect living area, and cosy, but elegant balcony mean you get front seats for the impressive sunset and views out across the harbour to Mullion Island.

With easy access to the cliff path and hidden coves of the Lizard Peninsula, this is a walker’s delight. Britain’s most southerly point is in one direction and Gunwalloe, Loe Bar and Porthleven are in the other, so you will be spoilt for choice.

Anchors away
It’s rare to find holiday accommodation which can boast the best of both worlds, but a stay at The Anchorage will give you just that. A gem amongst Classic Cottage’s impressive portfolio, it benefits from being at the heart of the vibrant sailing town of Falmouth whilst jutting out into the water.

With panoramic sea views on three sides, the property is situated at the very end of Admiral’s Quay, looking out to Flushing and beyond to the Carrick Roads.

This is a wonderful place to spend a happy hour watching the yachts and boats of Falmouth Harbour go by. The apartment is spacious and luxurious – it’s floor to ceiling windows in the dining room, which open out onto the continuous veranda, mean you can dine in style whatever the weather. All three bedrooms have sea views and access to the verandah. Maple units, black granite work surfaces and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen epitomise the quality of the whole apartment.

Perfect for boating enthusiasts, Falmouth is home to the National Maritime Museum and the Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week.
