Living in falmouth Situated on Cornwall's South Coast, Falmouth is a bustling town with plenty going on. A choice of boutiques, cafés and restaurants line Church St and Market St, while the sailing and watersports opportunities attract people from across the country.
The town is also renowned for its rich artistic heritage. One of the artists inspired by this stretch of Cornish coastline was jmw Turner, who visited the town in 1811 and captured the distinctive Cornish light in his depictions of Falmouth harbour and Pendennis Castle.
Falmouth's reputation as an artistic and cultural hub continues today, with galleries such as the Falmouth Art Gallery and the John Dyer Gallery hosting a collection of local and international art.
A new residence on cliff road The Fitzroy is a new collection of 34 one, two and three bedroom retirement apartments with panoramic views of Falmouth Bay and Pendennis Castle. Award-winning architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris have designed the five-storey building as a modern interpretation of the grand apartments and hotels, such as The Falmouth and The Royal Duchy, which line Falmouth's seafront.
The grounds have been inspired by Falmouth's 19th-century tradition of collecting tropical plants brought back from overseas expeditions. One particular touchstone is Darwin's voyage to the Galapagos on the hms Beagle, which returned to Falmouth in 1836 with a host of previously unknown species and varieties. Drawing on this history of seafaring and discovery, the gardens host a variety of exotic plants, while areas of Cornish walling form a series of nooks and crannies and sheltered seating areas.
Life at the fitzroy Here you'll find areas for relaxing amid the vibrant greenery and taking in the panoramic coastal views. Catch up with neighbours for a coffee in the lounge, where floor-to-ceiling glass windows let you look out across Falmouth's bay.
At reception, the Host will be happy to deal with any queries, whether that's taking guest suite bookings, recommending local restaurants or providing information on the range of locally sourced produce in the social kitchen.
