About the property

WiFi, seaviews, walking distance to both beaches and town - this one has it all!

The beautiful Gyllyngdune Manor has been converted into an equally beautiful set of holiday apartments. You’ll find The Manacles on the second floor, which can be accessed via a lift, overlooking Falmouth Bay, the Lizard Peninsula, and the Manacles Rocks.

Upon entering, you’ll find an open-plan living room, calmly decorated with a quaint nautical theme, with kitchen and dining area. French doors lead out onto a balcony with a table and chairs so you can breakfast in style, overlooking the bay. Inside a TV, CD player, DVD player, iPod dock and WiFi will provide all the entertainment you need when you aren’t out exploring the stunning local area, such as the newly restored Victorian Bandstand in the Princess Pavilions gardens.

You’ll find the kitchen superbly equipped with Gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. There’s also a handy utility-cupboard with washing machine and dryer. The property benefits from gas fired central heating, so the evenings will always be warm and cosy, no matter what the weather is doing.

Bedroom one has a double bed and en-suite with shower, basin, and WC, while bedroom two features twin singles. Both rooms are light and wonderfully decorated with splashes of colour; with such a vibrant view through the window, you need something equally pleasing inside!

The town of Falmouth, complete with its wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants and seaside sights, is just a few minutes’ walk away. The property does have an allocated parking space, although with Gyllyngvase beach just a short coastal path away, and ferries leaving Falmouth for St Mawes, Truro, and the Helford River, you could find the car feels a little left out!

The Manacles is a fantastic apartment in a stunning location, providing four lucky guests the opportunity to take in the true beauty of the Cornish coast whilst being conveniently located to provide everything a holiday needs to be perfect.

Well equipped apartment with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

I had a very enjoyable week's stay with my partner at The Manacles apartment in Falmouth last Autumn. In particular, the beautiful West facing private balcony with great sea views allowed us to enjoy the sun almost all day, ending with wonderful evening sunsets. It also overlooks the Princess Pavilion which has great food & special events including music & the arts throughout the year. The property was very clean and well-maintained, with all the facilities you could need, and has the luxury of two bathrooms, one for each bedroom. The location is also beautifully quiet for a good night's sleep! The reserved parking space was very convenient as we used our car most days. The apartment is located within an easy walk of Falmouth town centre with its many pubs, restaurants and shops. We also discovered some very scenic coastal walks which you can begin direct from the apartment - and it is only a 2 minute walk to the best beach in the town! Overall, I would highly recommend this holiday apartment to anyone wanting to get the best out of a stay in Falmouth, whether it is based around activities or just quietly relaxing. We are already looking forward to our next visit! Charlie Brown, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

An amazing apartment with beautiful views and over looking a Victorian bandstand. It has a west facing balcony and you can enjoy seeing the sun setting as well as relaxing in the sun. It is a few minutes walk to the best beach in Falmouth and the famous Gylly Beach Cafe. The town is a short stroll and has lots of bars and restaurants to enjoy. It is a perfect place to stay and we can't wait to return.
