Are you planning to visit the Southern Part of Cornwall anytime soon? Who can blame you? In here you can find the most amazing coastline, fantastic coves, rivers perfect for sailing, harbor towns and a number of great structures. If you want to see something close to paradise, this is one of your best bets. And yes, it is ideal for lovers and the entire family.


If you are pretty much in love with maritime (like Jon), spend more time in Falmouth located in Cornwall. See world class beaches and explore the maritime heritage. If lucky, you can join different festivities which will make your stay even more colorful – figuratively and literally. Good thing because they have ongoing events for the year. And if you are craving for fresh seafood, Falmouth is known to house a number of restaurants. Evidently, it is a tourist spot most especially for lovers of water!

To help you find the best luxury cottage in Falmouth, I suggest that you book it through Boutique Retreats. They are known to have wide choices of properties from small yet beautiful cottages to massive houses. You get to experience a hotel – like service which all travelers would like to have while on vacation. With 30 years of experience under their belts, you are sure to get only the best.Slipway Apartment in Falmouth with Boutique Retreats

And while we are talking about the best, our stay in one of Boutique Retreats’ properties was just incredible. The sunset and the view of the sea makes me even appreciate the blessings we have right now. And all these can be seen from our apartment called Slipway. Here’s what I can say about it.

In Slipway, you get to live in an Art Deco apartment building that provides you with an awesome view of the creek. This is perfect for romantic couples and yacht lovers. So yes, Jon loved every bit of it. There are beaches and restaurants nearby so you can be sure that your days will be filled with fun and yummy memories.Slipway-Apartment-in-Falmouth-with-Boutique-Retreats

Living Area

It is very relaxing to stay at the unit’s living area because it is spacious and there’s enough light to brighten up one’s day. The walls are made even more interesting with fine arts from local and global artists. I bet young lovers would be in awe seeing this unit. And for a TV – lover like me, I can spend the whole day in here just munching on popcorns while my favorite series plays. The balcony is even perfect when I want to breathe fresh air. Ah, it was great – I almost cried!Slipway-Apartment-in-Falmouth-with-Boutique-Retreats

  1. My hubby is from the south-west, so we’ve spent many a holiday down in Cornwall, but we haven’t stayed in Falmouth yet! It looks gorgeous, so fingers crossed we’ll make it there one day! x

  2. Looks like a great getaway! I’ve never been to Cornwall and it’s somewhere I’m desperate to visit! The cottage looked like a lovely place to stay! xo

  3. I haven’t been to Cornwall in years but it’s certainly a beautiful part of the world, and I remember the seafood being amazing!

  4. I always love getting cottages when I go away in the Uk as they’re such good bases and they tend to be a little further out so you can explore more. Looks like a great pick x

  5. I’ve never been to Falmouth, but the Slipway and your description make it sound very appealing. Will keep it mind for the next staycation.
