Dolphin Cottage is a delightful former fisherman’s cottage in the pretty waterside village of Flushing, just across the water from the busy maritime town, port and marina’s of Falmouth.

The castles are open daily to the public and host a number of major events during the summer. Falmouth has some of Cornwall’s most beautiful beaches and coves, including Gylingvase, Swanpool beach with its wildlife lakes, and the sandy cove of Meanporth. The National Maritime Museum, located on the harbour front in Falmouth, overlooks Events Square and is host to many high profile events throughout the year, including Tall Ships Week, the famous Oyster Festival, Falmouth Week, music and food events and some classic sailing events.
