THE LOCATION Penwerris Terrace is one of Falmouth's most sought after and valuable residential roads. It is set up high with phenomenal harbour and coastal views, yet within a few minutes' walk from the town and waterfront. The original Penwerris Terrace contains some of Falmouth's earliest and finest Regency houses, several of which were built for Packet Ship captains; the position no doubt chosen for its commanding marine outlook and convenience to the shore. So much of what delights about Falmouth is on one's doorstep at this location. The waterside is a few moments away as is the High Street with its individual shops and galleries, whilst The Boathouse, Star & Garter, or more up market Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and Greenbank Hotel are one's 'locals'. The town has a brilliant and diverse selection of restaurants and an eclectic mixture of shops, which include national chains, together with quality galleries showcasing local talent.
Falmouth's seafront, on the town's southern side, is about a mile away, with sandy beaches, Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle and access to incredible walks and scenery along the South West Coastal Path. Nearby train stations (Falmouth Town and Penmere Halt) provide a convenient link to the mainline at Truro for Exeter and London, Paddington. Falmouth Docks are a major contributor to the town's economy and along with Falmouth University (with campuses in Falmouth and Penryn) and Falmouth Marine School, specialising in traditional and modern boat building, marine engineering and environmental science, ensure an all year round and vibrant community. There are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and highly regarded independent preparatory and senior schools in Truro. Falmouth boasts the third largest natural harbour in the world and is renowned for its maritime facilities which offer some of the best boating and sailing opportunities in the country; little wonder the town is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.
