Captain's Rest cleverly combines the traditional features and charm of coastal townhouse living with chic and stylish luxury. Perfectly created just-for-two, this spacious apartment adds a little Cornish indulgence to your time away. The cosmopolitan waterside town centre of Falmouth is just a short 5 minute walk away and offers a cool fusion of local pubs and shops with more modern influences amongst the bars and restaurants. Captain's Rest is as perfect for a long overdue weekend away as a week long stay full of adventures as you explore this most beautiful corner of Cornwall. Babes in arms welcomed.

The Property

Captain's Rest is a single level apartment that occupies the ground floor of a traditional Falmouth townhouse (please refer to access statement). This once forgotten gem has been completely renovated to create a beautiful abode for couples who enjoy the finer things in life! Arrive into the open plan living and dining space set to the backdrop of the beautiful original bay window and jackpot views of the waterways of Carrick Roads. Once inside, this uber stylish room ensures relaxation and indulgent comfort with ample seating to sit and unwind. Cosy up in the cooler months and watch the wild Cornish weather or sit and gaze out over a sunny breakfast and watch the boats go by. The boutique style bedroom is located just off the living space and offers a tempting king size bed dressed to perfection. The bathroom offers a power shower for the perfect pamper and luxury robes are provided. The kitchen is galley style and includes all you need to get creative, the nearby artisan shops and producers make menu choices and holiday cooking a joy. Captain's Rest has been thoughtfully styled in a soft fusion of dusky pinks, antique creams and marl greys to bring a unique sense of serenity and vintage ambiance with just a nod the maritime heritage of Falmouth.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Captain's Rest. A superb property with a fantastic view. Thanks for your excellent service 

From your holiday door, steps lead down to a well placed garden bench just perfect for morning coffee or pre-dinner drinks. Stroll along the esplanade into the heart of Falmouth in just 5 minutes. Falmouth has so much to offer visitors, an eclectic collection of shops are well worth browsing and artisan cafes and restaurants ensure a true taste of Cornwall. Discovery Quay is a wonderful place to enjoy nautical life with the award winning Maritime Museum and selection of bars and restaurants gathered around a central wharf. From super yachts to day boats, sailors are attracted from around the world to the sheltered waters of Carrick Roads offering some of the best sailing in the UK, Port Pendennis is a smart marina and great place to watch the world sail by. The nearby beaches of Gyllyngvase and Swanpool offer golden sand and superb swimming, Gylly Beach Cafe is our top tip for sundowners with-a-view! The South Coast of Cornwall is wonderful to explore, head further West to The Lizard Peninsula and the picture perfect coves of Cadgwith and Coverack or North to The Roseland Peninsula. For a contrast of scenery take a day trip to the wild high cliffs and mile long beaches of the North Coast. If action and adventure is on the agenda then try your hand at any of the nearby watersports from Sailing to Kayaking, Paddle-boarding to Windsurfing or don your walking boots and take in the magical seascapes along the South West Coastal path. 

Whether your time at Captain's Rest is oh so short or you have time to immerse yourself a little longer in Cornish life, check in to boutique luxury at this very special gem.

Loved the Apartment, lovely location, views and so comfortable.

Kerry Wedge

Views were very beautiful, place was nice and quiet

James Hutchinon

The property was beautifully decorated and furnished and was in an excellent location with beautiful views just five minutes walk from the town centre which has some amazing restaurants but make sure you pre book. There was no dedicated parking space which was a shame but we managed to find a spot close to the apartment luckily! I booked it as surprise for my husbands 50th birthday and we weren't disappointed as it's a lovely property and also the staff at Cornish Gems were really friendly and helpful ���

Corinne Derrick

We were very pleasantly surprised by both the good, friendly and swift customer service before our holiday and by the accommodation on our arrival. It was a lovely weekend. The view was excellent.

Katie Breeze
