Greenwood is a beautifully presented, detached house, equidistant from the beaches at Swanpool and the centre of this vibrant town. The open plan kitchen dining area is bright and contemporary and opens out onto the large terrace. The bedrooms are all spacious and upstairs they both have their own private balconies, one is perfect for morning coffee and the other is for evening sun! But the most remarkable point about Greenwood is how private it feels with mature trees and shrubs the garden is not over looked at all and creates a wonderfully relaxed feel.

Falmouth has developed over the last few years into one of Cornwall's really fabulous destinations because of its amazing variety of things to do. It has a buzzing town centre filled with shops, restaurants and waterside attractions. Falmouth is a famous British sailing hotspot and hosts a popular Regatta Week every year in August. The sailing capital of Cornwall, it is renowned for being the third deepest natural port in the world. Visitors will find the town teeming with coastal treasures, ranging from fish restaurants and boat trips to The National Maritime Museum, next to Port Pendennis. Pendennis Castle, built in the 16th Century, sits high above the harbour with truly magical panoramic views across the bay. You can ride one of the Fal River Link Ferries to the beautiful St Mawes and visit Henry VIII's sister castle or take a delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at Trelissick Gardens for a cream tea.

Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and place to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day a truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events.

The beaches at Gyllyngvase & Swanpool are coarse sand and are wonderfully sunny south facing spots. You can ride the ferry to beautiful St Mawes for the day or take a delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens, Malpas or Truro. There are plenty of places to eat & drink in Falmouth and recently Rick Stein has opened his Fish & Chip Restaurant & Oyster Bar at Discovery Quay adding to the superb mix across the town.

A short drive away is the Helford River. This delightful part of Cornwall includes places such as Mawnan Smith, Helford Passage, Constantine & Gweek. The area has many delights such as Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, The Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, Goonhilly Earth and Satellite Station and The Ferry Boat Inn. Daphne du Maurier wrote her only romantic novel Frenchmans Creek about the River Helford, and who can blame her, the views really are beautiful. Glendurgan Gardens, run by the National Trust, hold a 176 year old laurel maze and the 'Giants Stride' swing is very popular with children. St Anthony-in-Meneage holds a lovely little church primarily of medieval architecture. Maenporth beach, tucked away on the westerly edge of Falmouth Bay and boasting spectacular views, is well worth a visit.

Diane from Barningham stayed at Greenwood for 7 nights in September
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Greenwood- the house was lovely and very well equipped. The garden was beautiful and very thoughtfully laid out with lots of places to sit as the sun moved around the garden. Unfortunately it was either raining or cloudy when we were there, so we couldn't take full advantage of it! We especially enjoyed sitting on the sofa in the kitchen overlooking the garden! The owners were very also helpful and gave us very good ideas about where to go in the area. All in all it was a lovely place to stay.

Guest from Braintree stayed at Greenwood for 7 nights in August
The house is fab and spotless clean and all creature comforts. Inc towels etc It's near town and the beaches and easily walkable. Falmouth is beautiful and a really good location to visit Cornwall from . Family live on site at the bottom of the garden but where unobtrusive and very helpful . Any issues where tended to immediately. Parking was my only gripe there is really only one parking space on a drive, ( we had 2 cars ) where you need to mount a kerb my wife's car couldn't get in . The same drive is used all the time by the family that own the house, who have about 4 vehicles and the second parking space was on a really small lane and didn't feel that safe and not really a parking space . So I would say it had one parking space . We loved the house and location and are looking to book again for next year .

Caroline from Oldham stayed at Greenwood for 7 nights in July
A very pleasant stay in a spacious house with beautiful gardens. Very modern bathrooms very comfortable settees in all rooms. Lovely garden room with doors leading to outdoor patio area. Would benefit from larger outdoor dining table for 6 people. We also feel that the stay could have been improved by a new bed in the downstairs bedroom. Easy walking distance to town and beaches.

Sara from Radstock stayed at Greenwood for 7 nights in June
Had a fantastic week at Greenwood, the house looks exactly as it is in the pictures and is spacious, airy and light, its equipped with everything you could need and more, the gardens are absolutely beautiful and completely enclosed so great for pets with a lovely patio area to relax, it's walking distance to both Falmouth town (so great for shops and places to eat) and Swanpool beach in the other direction which has a lovely beach cafe. The owners of Greenwood are nearby if needed, they are lovely and friendly with lots of helpful local tips, we really didn't want to leave.

Nicola from Surbiton stayed at Greenwood for 3 nights in May
Greenwood has a lovely entrance and welcome - a gate into a secret Cornish garden that winds round to the front door. The house is very clean and light, particularly the kitchen. It's a great relaxed place to stay with easy walking access to Gylly Beach & the town, we would be happy to stay again.
