Thalassa in Falmouth – Self-Catering Property above Falmouth Harbour
Thalassa is a splendid four-bedroomed self-catering property ideally situated fronting the High Street of Falmouth with a large rear terrace overlooking Falmouth Harbour.
Location of Thalassa in Falmouth
Thalassa is a two-storey apartment above some shops on the High Street in Falmouth, Cornwall. The front door is on an alley way that leads from Church Street public car park to the High Street. The rooms at the front overlook the High Street. But the best view is at the back where a large terrace looks down on Falmouth Harbour. This is a great place to enjoy meals al fresco and an early morning cup of tea watching the comings and goings from the harbour.
Accommodation at Thalassa in Falmouth
The accommodation at Thalassa is on two floors and comprises a spacious kitchen, a cosy sitting room, a dining room/games room, four bedrooms, a bathroom (with toilet), a shower room (with toilet) and a separate toilet.
All the rooms are beautifully decorated, light and spacious. Both the sitting room and the kitchen look out across the harbour and so do two of the bedrooms. French windows lead out on to the spacious patio outside.
Two steepish flights of narrow stairs lead up to the property from street level but they are well-lit and have strong bannisters so these are not a problem for most people. As far as luggage is concerned small cases/bags are easier to handle on these stairs.
Attractions near Thalassa in Falmouth
Falmouth is a very attractive, seaside town with narrow cobbled streets lined with interesting independent shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants. It is easy to while away half a day browsing shops and indulging in Cornish pasties and cream teas. It is also home to the National Maritime Museum on Discovery Quay. Fifteen galleries offer exhibitions of boats, Monsters of the Sea and an Unnatural World. Pendennis Castle is a short walk from the town, topping a hill above the town. Its sister castle, St Mawes Castle is just across the harbour, a short journey on the regular ferry from the Prince of Wales Quay. Beaches fringe the rocky coastline and parks and gardens enhance this pretty area.
