Boscawen - Waterside Luxury Apartment in Packet Quays, Falmouth Cornwall - Boscawen Has Sea Views From Both Bedrooms and 2 balconies Secure Parking For 2, Just Walk Into Town
Boscawen could hardly be better placed to help you enjoy Falmouth.
Situated at the top of the ancient High Street you are within the historic old town, a few minute’s walk from the many shops, bars and restaurants along the waterfront, as well as the main pier from which you can explore the Fal estuary by ferry.
So to explore Falmouth you won't need a car. In fact parking in the old town is a problem for most, but not you, with secure parking which gives you the best of both worlds - enjoy the town on foot or travel further afield.
We have a double parking space in the underground garage which can only be accessed by keyholders. The bonus of Boscawen is its fantastic views of Falmouth Harbour from the 2 patios and both bedrooms. The apartment is very light and sunny due to the 'conservatory type' clear roof at the end of the living room.

Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Many ideas to follow in local facilities section.
Distance to waterfront 50m. Boscawen is built above the waters Edge. The main 3 beaches of Falmouth can be walked to in 20 minutes or 5 minutes by car. Our largest Beach, Gyllyngvase, is lifeguarded in the Summer and has an excellent beach side Cafe with sheltered outside seating. There are also award winning Gardens there which can be walked through and sat in , away from the sand! The seafront promenade is an enjoyable flat, 20 minute walk and you can stroll along and take in the views.
Nearest airport - Newquay 45 minute drive, which has links to many UK cities and car hire facilities.
Falmouth has 3 train stations so you could have a complete car free holiday in Boscawen, the transport network is very efficient to visit Cornwalls attractions.
Buses run regularly from all the major towns and to the Beaches.
The Town centre is a 3 minute walk , the Events Square at the end of the town is about 20 minutes walk and there we have the National Maritime Museum. The World famous Eden Project is a 40 minute drive and well worth a visit. There are many National Trust properties and Gardens all over Cornwall and a car is needed as some are off the beaten track.
We have a Tesco situated at the bottom of the High Street, a 3 minute walk, we also have, just out of town , an Asda, Sainsburys and Lidl. All major Banks are represented in the Town.
In the Town we have many small independant shops and Galleries, plus we have our own Falmouth Art Gallery which is free to visit. There are many Deli's selling local produce and drinks, some have seating areas inside and offer excellent variety. we also have a multi screen cinema, a large indoor public swimming pool and a Historic Castle situated on the Pendennis Headland, 30 minutes walk from Boscawen. The Castle is open to the public for a small fee and there you can see the sister Castle opposite at St Mawes. This village is reached by foot ferry from the bottom of our High Street, a 15 minute boat trip where you can see the apartments from the water and the interesting views of Falmouth from the water.
We have two sailing schools where you can have tuition or hire a small boat for the day. There are fishing trips from the Quays and water sports on most of the beaches. You can hire Kayaks for yourselves and the children in a very safe environment.
Stables can be found outside of Falmouth where you can join Riding groups if required. The South West Coast Path runs right around Falmouth and you can walk for miles around the coastline , joining in various locations and seeing the 'Real' Cornwall. There are also a few childrens attractions and a theme park within 10 miles of Falmouth.
