Maritime house is in the centre of this vibrant seaside town with fantastic views of the busy harbour, home to vessels of all sorts including fishing boats, classic boats and naval ships. Maritime House is a development with Events Square at its heart, with its numerous restaurants, shops and the National Maritime Museum of Cornwall. Events Square hosts numerous artistic and cultural events including the world-famous Falmouth Oyster Festival. This is the perfect location to enjoy all that Falmouth and this part of Cornwall has on offer with sandy beaches a short walk away, two marinas within easy walking distance and the Falmouth Watersports Centre on your doorstep, that offers a range of waterborne activities including gig racing, sailing, kayaking etc.

Falmouth lies at the entrance to the Carrick Roads, a beautiful estuary bordered by countryside and small waterside villages and home to sheltered anchorages and yacht marinas. Falmouth also has wonderful sandy beaches and is consistently voted one of the best places to live in the South West (The Sunday Times).

Falmouth harbour itself provides an ever-changing outlook and has hosted transatlantic races in addition to many other sailing and water sport championships. For the keen day sailor or dedicated yachtsman, the South Cornish coast offers some of the finest sailing waters in the UK. A short car, boat or ferry ride away are beautiful creeks and wonderful waterside pubs and restaurants. Customs House Quay is only a 3 minute walk away where you can catch the ferry to St Mawes. Falmouth itself is a colourful and historic port with an eclectic mix of galleries, coffee shops, artisan bakeries bars and restaurants, and home to Exeter’s University’s Cornwall Campus and Falmouth University itself. Falmouth golf club sits on the headland above Falmouth Bay while much of the surrounding coastline is protected by the National Trust. There is a huge amount of water sport on offer in Falmouth from weekly yacht and dinghy racing, gig rowing, paddle-boarding, diving, fishing and swimming. Gyllyngvase and Castle beaches are within easy walking distance from Maritime House.
