The Area


For those wanting to spend a more leisurely time on the water, there is a regular (½ hourly) ferry service from St Mawes to the sea faring town of Falmouth. The trip, lasting around 25 minutes, takes in excellent views including St. Mawes Castle, Pendennis Castle, black rocks and St. Anthony lighthouse.

Besides the water activities there are two good beaches nearby, benefiting from a southerly aspect making them ideal for sunbathing.

Further attractions in the area are the round houses at Veryan (reputedly built in that shape to keep the devil from hiding in the corners). The cathedral town of Truro is accessible either by road or by the historic King Harry ferry. See the rooms.
