A large luxurious coastal retreat, moments from sandy Swanpool Beach
This glorious accommodation in fabulous Falmouth is located in Swanpool just moments from the sea.
Spacious, set over three floors, it is perfectly sized for an extended family or friend group and its location is second to none. Swanpool is on the scenic west side of the vibrant university town of Falmouth, on the outskirts of the centre (about 1.5 miles or 5 minutes’ drive away). With its own sandy cove, Swanpool is a ‘happening’ place with a lively atmosphere, but also offers the opportunity to enjoy nature and tranquility.
This beautiful, light-filled designer detached three-storey property offers you contemporary seaside luxury. High-end splendour, the tasteful furnishing creates exactly the holiday setting you want, while the ‘upside down’ design maximises the wonderful views over the Fal Estuary and Swanpool Lake. The house is decorated in seaside neutrals and ocean colours, to ‘bring the outside in’, with a combination of rich blues, turquoise teals and warm whites to complement the views of Swanpool Beach.
Top floor contains the open-plan family living/dining/kitchen area and balcony with outdoor seating, perfect for morning coffee in the open air.
With four bedrooms, three king-sized and one double, all with ensuites (2 with baths/showers over, 2 with showers) you have space and privacy. Each bedroom also has its own Smart TV. The first floor is home to three of the bedrooms with ensuites, plus an additional study, with a single sofa bed, if needed. Quality WiFi is available throughout the accommodation.
Downstairs to the ground floor, with ample parking for two cars on the driveway, the garage has been converted to a good-sized games room for all your family entertainment needs. The games room offers storage, a football table and a pool table plus a bar area, a utility room, WC, and the fourth bedroom.
The sea views are also appreciated from the bubbling hot tub in the garden, which accommodate all guests and is the perfect place to relax after a day at the beach. You will also find a gas barbecue with fridge and seated dining area.
It is so gorgeous here that you might want to stay in all day, but if you choose to go out, then Swanpool Beach is but a 3-minute walk away. When you return, there is a hanging space outside to dry off your wetsuits and a hot outdoor shower.
Located close to Falmouth Golf Course and Country Club, with its new club house, golfers have a top-quality course to hand. Meanwhile, surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasting dramatic coastline, there are beautiful walks. If you stroll to the beach, you can find an array of watersports to try, such as kayaking, windsurfing and sailing. Don’t miss Swanpool Nature Reserve, also within walking distance as it backs onto the beach; make sure you take time out to relax while feeding the swans and ducks.
Here, you have the best of all worlds, so which one will you choose?
High-quality bed linen and towels are provided at all of Cornish Secrets properties.
Superb Swanpool is a beautiful area on the outskirts of Falmouth, renowned for its fabulous fresh and salt-water nature reserve. Surrounded by rare wet woodland, there is an array of wildlife here – look out for elusive but beautiful kingfishers. For more information, including the history of the area, this link has some fabulous photos.
Drink in the views, while feeding tame swans and ducks in this tranquil setting which is a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest), home to many bird species, and the rare Trembling Sea Mat, a microscopic animal found nowhere else in the UK. You can get closer if you take a rowing boat on the lagoon. Originally, local landowners kept their feasting birds here but now it is a highly desirable area for visitors, with a small, clean beach and beach cafe nearby. Crazy golf is another fun option, while under 14s will adore the fun-bouncer.
The welcoming, friendly and fun beach area is known for its colourful beach huts. It is sheltered for safer swimming, while the cafe is home to ‘quirky ice creams’ (covered in sweets, fruits or chocolates) and ‘barefoot dinners’ of sumptuous seafood feasts. At its northern end, it is just a short walk via a path to Falmouth’s larger blue-flag Gyllyngvase Beach. Elemental UK watersports is also based on the beach for equipment hire (kayaks are fun) and tuition in a wide range of adrenaline activities. Meanwhile, for the more sedate, Falmouth Golf Club nearby welcomes visitors.
Slightly further afield is fabulous Falmouth which sits by the Fal estuary. It has a National Maritime Museum, and many other attractions. Although a large town by Cornish standards, it is easily explored on foot, with a working harbour and docks area (it is a large port), beaches and shops in the town centre. Look out for characterful 18th century buildings and an array of independent shops. The National Maritime Museum is a magnificent rainy day activity, with twelve galleries set over three floors. In the town, children will love counting steps on Jacob’s Ladder, which is simply a shortcut created by a local called Jacob, who wanted to get to his house quicker.
Falmouth is a university town with a young, exuberant vibe. Of course, the town has a Rick Stein’s for dinner or takeaways, and you will find many other wonderful places to eat/drink in our Guide.
Falmouth is guarded by a grassy headland with a Tudor Castle, Pendennis, built by order of Henry VIII and paired with St Mawes. It is free for English Heritage members.
You can catch a 20 minute ferry to St Mawes, on the Roseland Peninsula, for another day out, and maybe a pasty lunch. Ferries run every half hour.
August brings the largest regatta in the south west to Falmouth, while October offers the Falmouth Oyster Festival. Sea shanties grew popular this year on Tik Tok, but long before that June was established as the month for the not-to-bee-missed international Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival.

Very well equipped house in a quiet location, 5 minute walk to Swanpool beach. Enjoyed the small landscaped garden with hot tub and BBQ
Beautiful house with every facility
The location is fantastic with just a minute walk to the beach and a lovely ½ hr stroll into Falmouth itself. Very well situated. The house itself is gorgeous with a large well equipped kitchen, cosy living room (great sofas!) and four good size bedrooms with ensuite. The bed was very comfortable and my pillow was just the right size (plenty to choose from). The hot tub in the garden is marvellous for a cosy afternoon with a glass of champagne! We had such a wonderful time and I can wholly recommend “Waves” for a luxurious getaway. 5/5 stars.
The setting has the most stunning views whichever window you look out from. The house has everything you could possibly need supplied and the huge hot tub, bbq and garden furniture are a bonus. I will definitely be returning and will be recommending to my friends!
Scenic location for a very spacious place to stay. Hosts are very welcoming and easy to speak to
The staff at Cornish Secrets were great - got everything sorted for us with short notice. The house itself was brilliant - great location, lovely new place with everything you could want, even the games room. Comfy beds, views of the sea, nice garden.
Excellent spacious property, professionally managed and close to the Swanpool Beach.
Beautiful house with every facility. Superb games room a bonus.
Quiet location, 5 minute walk to Swanpool beach. Very well equipped house on a new development with excellent accommodation for a large group. Enjoyed the small landscaped garden with hot tub and BBQ.
We had a wonderful stay the house and location was faultless.
We were totally wowed by the location and the house itself. Within an hour of arrival we instantly felt relaxed from our journey as the house is just so beautiful with distant views out to sea from the kitchen dining room area and lovely garden, with a glass of bubbly in hand! Each room is beautifully presented with its own bathroom which was great. The jacuzzi under the stars was magical.
The house is perfectly located minutes walk to the beach with a hot tub to retreat back to after a brisk morning swim. The wifi Is fantastic with ample space to work throughout the house which was a massive positive for those of us working whilst we were there. Fantastic views over the sea from the terrace and brilliant games room to keep everyone entertained. We could not have asked for anymore, we will be back!
The house is very modern and spacious, with plenty of natural light and views of the sea, which is just round the corner! It was well equipped with everything you need, and a great bonus having a hot tub in the garden and a games room! We’re hoping to visit again in 2023 for sure!!
The house is beautifully decorated with lots of natural light, very warm and comfortable - even in the middle of winter! Good size bedrooms, all ensuite and the most comfortable beds. Arrived to find a lit Christmas tree and festive hamper - such a lovely welcome after a long journey. Thank you - we will be back!
Although the weather was not on our side during our trip, the comfort and luxury of this house more than made up for it. The house is spacious and modern, with en suites in each of the bedrooms for privacy. The top floor in particular is spectacular with high ceilings, comfy furniture and great views over the coastline. The hot tub, huge dining table and proximity of local amenities meant we barely needed our hire car (there’s even a golf course just around the corner).
Can't wait to return!
Will be back!
Hot tub was a great hit!
