The Retreat

Castle Bay is a ground-floor beach apartment with sweeping sea views, offering a fantastic base to enjoy a south coast escape for up to four people. It’s ideally situated on Falmouth’s seafront and the creative and thriving town is just a short walk away…

Situated on the ground floor of The Strand, a well-kept, peaceful apartment block on Falmouth’s seafront is Castle Bay, an end apartment sleeping up to four. With direct garden access through its patio doors and a private seating area in front of the sea, you’re just seconds from exploring Falmouth’s sandy beaches, coastal cafes and vibrant surroundings.


Castle Bay is situated in a premium ocean-facing location in one of Falmouth’s exclusive apartment developments. The retreat offers a relaxed and traditional feel within a contemporary apartment setting with and lovely ‘coastal home away from home’ feel. There’s a beautifully appointed open plan living and dining area with smart TV, comfortable sofas and a dining space for all guests. With the horizon as your view, you can enjoy it from inside the apartment, or through the fully glazed double doors leading straight onto the private patio area. Adjacent to the living area is the good-sized contemporary kitchen, which is well equipped with all you need for creating and serving delicious meals on your holiday.

The principle bedroom has a super-king sized bed with sea views, meaning you can wake up and enjoy the sounds and sights of the sea and enjoy the beautiful sunrises Falmouth offers. There is a shower room next door to the principal bedroom, separate from the family bathroom, allowing both bedrooms to have privacy.  The second bedroom is along the corridor and has twin beds and a wardrobe.


This delightful holiday home is on the ground floor and opens through the living area onto a private patio and beyond that, well-tended lawns and gardens are shared with other residents.  The outside space faces south so from sunrise to sunset you are bathed in sunlight making al fresco dining and outdoor lounging a joy. You also have a private parking space, well secure within the apartment’s gated perimeter – as well as further parking outside of the apartment block on a quiet road if required. At Castle Bay, you also have private access to the seafront and beaches from a private gate, just a few metres from your patio doors.

Things we love

At Castle Bay, you’re not only spoilt with ever-changing sea views of Falmouth Bay, but also the vibrant town buzzing with maritime heritage and its creative industry is less than a ten-minute stroll away along quiet residential streets. Boasting plenty of local eateries, independent shops and hidden gems, you have some hard decisions to make when deciding where to eat and drink! We of course love the beaches of Falmouth, with calm, crystal seas and golden sand. Castle Beach is just 200m from your gate and perfect for an early morning dip and a coffee… whilst Gyllyngvase Beach is a five-minute walk and offers a stylish beach restaurant, by-the-sand bakery, SUP and kayak rental, and brilliant ice-creams. Falmouth really is is a beach lover’s paradise and Castle Bay is quite literally a stone’s throw from some of the best beaches around! For a perfect day perhaps explore Pendennis castle, or hop on the foot ferry to nearby St Mawes, before returning to your beach-side haven at Castle Bay.

Beautiful view across the bay
The apartment is so comfortable with so much thought gone into providing everything you might need during your stay. The most impressive thing for us was the beautiful view across the bay from the apartment. Can't be beaten. We stayed very local and enjoyed walks to Gyllyngvase and Swanpool beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to come back. Organisation from Forever Cornwall was spot on and particularly the information provided.

Guests Say
  • Loads of space

    We absolutely loved our stay at the apartment on Cliff Road! I couldn't find a single thing wrong with it. It's an easy walk into the centre of town, which is a fantastic seaside town, with restaurants, cafes, pubs, boat trips and shops for all tastes. We were also very handy for visiting our son who is at the university and in accommodation by the port docks. There is so much to see and do straight from the front door. We left our car parked in the designated space all week. The view from the apartment was straight across the ever-changing ocean and allowed easy walking up and down the sea front to Gyllyngvase Beach and Swanpool beyond it, in one direction, and to Pendennis Castle in the other. The apartment had loads of space and looked bigger in real life even than in the photos. We already miss it loads, now we are home. Thank you for such a great place to stay.

  • Spacious apartment

    A spacious apartment in a great, quiet location with fantastic views. Loved the garden gate leading straight out onto the seafront and the short walk to Gylly bakery for food and goodies each morning.

  • One of the best by far

    A big thank you to Andrew, Emma and the Forever Cornwall team, we have had a fantastic holiday staying in this wonderful apartment. We were absolutely delighted with the whole apartment and stunning views across the bay. Having stayed in and around Falmouth before this has been one of the best by far. We didn't need to bring anything with us as it's already here. Look forward to staying with you again. Will rebook when home.

  • Views are spectacular

    We've had a wonderful week in this well equipped beautiful apartment. The views are spectacular and we enjoyed watching all the boats and water-sports going on. We had a wonderful day out to St Michael's Mount which was a great find and again, we saw some beautiful views. We had many coffees, drinks, ice creams etc at the Gylly Beach Cafe (down the road) and would definitely recommend visiting there. We walked up to Pendennis Castle and had a little explore, visiting Castle Beach on the way back. We would really recommend Harbour Lights fish and chip shop, absolutely delicious. We visited Glendurgan National Trust and had fun trying to solve the maze. We really hope to return.

  • Beautiful view across the bay

    Arrived on 'Armed Forces Day' and were welcomed by a fantastic air display across the bay which included the Red Arrows and RAF Falcons. What a good start to the holiday. The apartment is so comfortable with so much thought gone into providing everything you might need during your stay. The most impressive thing for us was the beautiful view across the bay from the apartment. Can't be beaten. We stayed very local and enjoyed walks to Gyllyngvase and Swanpool beach. Cafe at Swanpool do amazing hot ciabatta sandwiches. We walked from Pendennis Castle and took the ferry from Prince of Wales pier to St Mawes — a lovely visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to come back. Organisation from Forever Cornwall was spot on and particularly the information provided.

  • Wonderful

    We've had a wonderful week in this 5* apartment and enjoyed visiting several National Trust properties. We also visited Trebah and Glendurgan, just a short distance from each other.
