Marina and river views, great spot for a beer or to eat a pastie or fish and chips. Breathtaking in any weather. Last week I saw a superyacht (New Hampshire) which costs nearly $1/2 Million to rent for a week!

Sit watching the world sail by whatever the weather it's just stunning. Watch the 'big boats' coming in and out of harbour or just moored. Great with a pasty in hand

Yes you can take dogs. Best to keep them on a lead as you are for the main part walking alongside main roads.
Are there any amusement arcades in Falmouth

Response from Abi C | Reviewed this property |
Not as far as I know - I've been coming here for 15 years and would have found some by now! Falmouth doesn't seem to be that sort of place - in fact we have only found an amusement arcade in Penzance so far.
