THE LOCATION Carnes Court is a McCarthy and Stone retirement development enjoying a front row position, set along Falmouth's seafront and accessed from Emslie Road. This is a peaceful, tranquil spot whereby one is so close to the water that you can hear the lap of the waves on the shore of the beaches below. You have a choice of the secluded sandy beaches of Castle and Tunnel or a short walk away is the ever popular Gyllyngvase complete with its chic, bustling café and safe swimming waters. Along the seafront is an array of architecture and building, all added to over the years with careful consideration of the desirability of the area and now providing various places for dining and leisure activities. A short walk away is Falmouth centre - a thriving and vibrant town with an eclectic mixture of independent and national shops, many galleries showcasing local art and crafts and an excellent and varied selection of places to eat and drink. Events Square and the National Maritime Museum regularly host activities and events throughout the year including Falmouth Classics, Falmouth Week and the Oyster and Sea Shanty festivals. No wonder Falmouth is consistently voted in the top five favourite places to live in the UK.
