It is regarded as one of the most sought after areas of the town being comparatively quiet yet within a few hundred yards walk down hill to the town's High Street and town centre beyond.
Falmouth itself is very much an up and coming town hosting international sailing events and is the home for the highly regarded famous Art School. It is a haven for many holidaymakers who enjoy its fabulous beaches and scenic river trips for many quays and wharfs. The town offers a profusion of quality restaurants and shops and is the venue for Rich Stein's latest restaurant as well as the National Maritime Museum. The ever increasing student population ensures a dynamic vibrancy as do the various festivals and events that occur throughout the year; Falmouth Week, The Oyster Festival and The Sea Shanty to name a few.
Falmouth has frequently been voted as one of the most desirable towns in which to live in the whole of the UK.
