Located in the heart of Falmouth, this property is the ideal base for families or couples wanting to enjoy a wonderful seaside retreat.

Penn An Vownder is a lovely detached holiday property located in the heart of Falmouth. It is within easy walking distance to beaches, town centre with shops, restaurants, bars, galleries, cinema and the famous National Maritime Museum located in Events Square. The town boasts some of Cornwall’s most beautiful sandy beaches, inlcuding the award-winning local Gyllyngvase Beach.

The area is well respected by foodies with Rick Stein’s restaurant, famous Fal Fresh Fish and many food and drink events attracting guests from around the world. The harbour is a constant busy back drop hosting numerous prestigious sailing events throughout the year. The harbour attracts many world-class yachts to its natural deep harbour. Events Square is the home to a superb calendar of events, including Falmouth week in August, a must for those who love live music, fancy dress and a great atmosphere. There are a number of nationally acclaimed local sub-tropical gardens to visit including Trebah, Durgan and Trelissick.

Stroll through the winding streets full of individual small shops, galleries and tea rooms.

    The owners, Zoe and Mark, live next door and were extremely helpful. They welcomed us in as we pulled up on arrival, gave us advice on local amenities (which are excellent), and showed us round the house to make sure we knew where everything is and how it works. The house itself is wonderfully done, and was also very toddler friendly for our 17 month old - though we did have to turn off the oven and move the speakers behind the TV! Fantastic house in a fantastic location, with fantastic owners. Recommended.

    Penn An Vowder was ideally situated for touring around the south of cornwall which we really enjoyed. We were unfortunate with some of the weather but we still managed to do what we had planned. There are some amazing sights to see for anyone visiting the southern part of cornwall.

    Fabulous accommodation and great owners who gave us such a warm welcome and lovely cream teas! The choice of dvds was amazing and the kids were able to use the buckets and spades that were stored outside at the beach, great park just a street away and could walk into Falmouth too, would recommend to anyone, and a bonus if your travelling with little ones the outside area is closed off 😊

    We enjoyed staying at Penn an Vownder . It was lovely to have the owners next door. They were very helpful with information about places to visit and transport. We didn't have our own transport so found the ferries and buses useful for visiting National Trust properties.

    Very comfortable & well-equipped accommodation - there's not much they haven't thought of! Friendly & helpful host. Our only suggestion, as a benefit to guests who may be a little unsteady on their feet, an additional handrail on the stairs and a grab handle in the shower would be useful.
