Spring in Falmouth
Spring into life this season and discover our top 5 Spring Adventures...
1. Go Exploring
A short drive takes you to the enchanting gardens of Trebah, Glendurgan, Enys and Penjerrick where you’ll discover plants that you won’t find anywhere else in the UK (thanks to Cornwall’s unique climate). Or explore some of the National Trust properties and protected areas within day-tripping distance, such as Trelissick near Truro, or the lighthouse and walks at stunning St Anthony Head.
2. Walk the Coast Path
Falmouth is an ideal launchpad for yomps by creek, cliff and coast. There are paths and trails to suit all levels of walker, from a ramble down a quiet bridleway to a long hike on the unspoilt South West Coast Path (it runs through Falmouth). Covering at least a short stretch of the 630-mile-long National Trail is an absolute must-do. We'll even pack you a picnic and supply maps and guidebooks for your adventures in the great outdoors.
3. Discover Historic Sites
The hotel’s captivating view of Pendennis Castle outlined against the sky calls for closer examination. A stroll leads to the coastal Tudor fortress which dominates the headland, where interactive experiences and fascinating exhibitions are accompanied by exhilarating sea air and breathtaking views.
4. Take a Magical Crossing
Board a classic wooden ferry from Falmouth’s maritime port and traverse to the small fishing village of St Mawes, taking in stunning views of the Roseland Peninsula, as well as the castles of St Mawes and Pendennis, from the water. Sharp-eyed seafarers may spot the harbour’s resident seals, dolphins and basking sharks.
5. Get in the Festival Spirit
Celebrate the season at Falmouth’s annual Spring Festival. Hit the town to admire daffodils adorning nearly 100 windows with vibrant colour; stroll a mere five minutes from the hotel to discover displays of rare and exotic flora at Princess Pavilion; and follow a guided walk with a theme (‘tree identification’, ‘Poldark’s Falmouth’ and ‘coast and inland paths’ all featured last year).
