We all want a little peace and quiet every now and then, preferrably by the sea in a spot away from home – even better if it’s a little place of luxury to pamper ourselves and hide away from the daily stresses of life. We’ve done our research and discovered the most chic boutique hotels in the wonderful harbor town of Falmouth in Cornwall, that are perfect for this occasion.
Top Boutique Hotels in Falmouth
It would essentially be a sin to visit wonderful Falmouth for a seaside break without staying at this gorgeous boutique hotel. With everything you need for a comfortable country style minibreak, Merchants Manor is a chic stop for those looking to seek out the best from Falmouth. Here you can expect a mindful break for focusing on relaxation, and enjoy some excellent food from the restaurant, Rastella, which even boasts two AA rosettes, just in case you need evidence of the hotel’s top quality.
Merchants Manor is set high for beautiful views across the town, so make sure you can reserve a top-floor room if you can. It’s located near to Rick Stein’s fish restaurants – you’re spoilt for choice in Falmouth – and just a steady ramble from both Gyllyngvase and Swanpool beaches. The hotel owners are young and injected the hotel with a perfect amount of chic and elegance, opting for fine vintage furnishings and tasteful modern decorations, which is just great for snuggling up with a good book, of which you’ll find plenty piled up next to a comfy seat with a good outside view.
Be sure to indulge in the excellent facilities too – perhaps a relaxing treatment or a session in the steam room, a good workout in the state of the art gym, or a relaxing dip in the pool – you can even take on a Boxfit class if you’re feeling energetic. Each room is decorated a little differently for that wonderful boutique feel, but all come equipped with a luxury bathroom. Finally, don’t miss out on the super restaurant, which boasts delicious dishes prepared with locally sourced ingredients.
Highcliffe is one of the best boutique hotels in Falmouth and excellent value for money given the wonderful service, chic décor, and comfortable surroundings. Guests are treated to amazing views over the estuary, marina, and sea, and there are beach and cliff walks to enjoy in between relaxing and enjoying delicious food from the restaurant. You’ll also find adorable cafes and restaurants nearby, and the seaside centre is just ten minutes’ walk away along the promenade.
As a boutique bed and breakfast, expect quirky British features combined with pure comfort. Take a well-earned break from those seaside walks with a snooze by the open fire in one of the deliciously deep armchairs, and take in the unique yet elegant décor of each guestroom which is different to the next, many with dreamy views. The owners are friendly and welcoming, and will always be ready to offer great recommendations. Also be sure to make the most of the wonderful restaurant which serves scrumptious breakfasts with locally roasted coffee, homemade granola, and delicious hot breakfasts.
