Venture out of town into the elegant countryside and you will find some of the regions highlights like the awe-inspiring fortress of Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII to defend the country against invasion. A fun day out for all the family is the lamp-lit Victorian village of Flambards where together with mock-up experiences of the London Blitz and a walk on the flight deck of the original British Concorde there is also rollercoaster rides to get the adrenaline pumping. And what better way to experience British heritage than staying in a traditional Falmouth holiday cottage.
