Tenure: Leasehold

THE LOCATION Queen Mary House occupies an amazing position overlooking, Queen Mary Gardens, beside Gyllyngvase Beach and with spectacular views out to sea.

Falmouth bay faces south and has a reputation for its temperate climate. The bay boasts a number of beaches from the more secluded 'Castle' Beach to 'Tunnel' and of course Gyllyngvase, Falmouth's most popular beach. The activity around Gyllyngvase captures a good deal of custom with the chic Gylly beach Café, which overlooks the beach and sea.

Queen Mary House is just behind the coastal path which facilitates the very popular scenic walks around the famous Pendennis Headland, passing the fascinating Pendennis Castle built by Henry VII in the 1540s to protect England from France and Spain. Gyllyngvase is virtually on the threshold of Queen Mary House, to the south a short walk takes you to yet another safe swimming beach, Swanpool, flanked by a fresh water lake, a well known haven for migrant marine birds.

Falmouth is a resort for all seasons, renowned as one of the world's great water sporting centres, boasting some of Europe's most regarded sailing waters with its hidden coves and sheltered estuaries. This historical town presents a fascinating mix of charming individual boutiques and well know chains and high street names.

Queen Mary House is ideally placed to take advantage of all the area has to offer.
