Kinbrae House could not be better positioned for a visitor to fabulous Falmouth and anyone wishing to explore Cornwall. An apartment or the studio at Kinbrae House provides a fantastic base from where you can visit so many wonderful attractions in Cornwall either by boat, train, bus, bike, your own car or on foot.
Kinbrae House is located in the most stunning part of Falmouth on the South side of the port town and enjoys sea views and the tranquillity of this lovely residential area. Kinbrae House is only a few paces from the blue flagged Gylly Beach and the South West Coastal path is in easy walking distance just at the bottom of Gyllyngvase Road. You can head in either an Easterly or Westerly direction for a good stomp and wont fail to miss the wonderful continuous coastal landscape. There are also many lovely parks in walking distance from Kinbrae House as well as the incredible Pendennis Castle on the nearby headland.
Approximately an hours drive to St Ives, Penzance, The Lizard, Lands End, Newquay and Padstow; an hour and fifteen minutes to the Eden project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and South East Cornwall.
Boat trips to Truro take about an hour and a half, St Mawes is a half hour crossing and the Helford return trip takes a good fun filled couple of hours.
The ferry to Flushing takes approximately 5 minutes and is well worth a trip to this delightful little port village. There are a couple of pubs and a restaurant in Flushing and there are a lot of lovely walks to take from there that bring you to Mylor and Mylor Bridge.
There is a water taxi service in Falmouth which is a really great way to travel in the Carrick Roads.
The train service is very reliable and the local line to Truro can be taken from Falmouth Town station only a few minutes walk from Kinbrae House. From Truro why not take the Great Western services to Penzance and other wonderful locations in Cornwall.
Cycling and walking in Cornwall are wonderful recreations. You will never grow tired of this remarkable county and what it has to offer to ramblers and bikers. Buses and trains are happy to take your bike aboard but make sure you book you bike on your train journey to avoid disappointment as not all services take bicycles.
There is an abundance of beautiful gardens in and around Falmouth that are open to the public and well worth a visit or two during your stay at any time of the year.
