Highgarden (previously known as 'Chy An Bar') is the ideal base for a fun-filled varied holiday on the South Cornwall coast. This lovely end of terrace house is perfectly positioned, being close to the Events Square and the best restaurants Falmouth has to offer, whilst having enough distance not to let noise be an issue. The property is within walking distance to Falmouth's beaches and Pendennis Castle, as well as being just a short stroll from the Marina, National Maritime Museum, and many restaurants and shops. The Events Square hosts events such as The Oyster Festival, Falmouth Week, International Sea Shanty and the Folk and Cider Festival to name a few. So much to do right on your doorstep!

Located 5 miles south of Redruth, the lake is reputed to be one of the windiest inland waters in England so it's a great location for sailing and windsurfing.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Highgarden. Lovely welcome treats which we appreciated and a great little ‘home from home’. Fantastic location with lots to do in Falmouth but we travelled to lots of other places too. Including Kynance Cove, Porthkidney beach, Falmouth Beach, Navy Maritime Museum, Pendennis Castle and we ate at many lovely places including The Shack and Cribbs. Fabulous home and thank you for recommending Lifton Farm Shop, we stopped for lunch and shopping in the farm store both travelling to and from our holiday! Our children loved it. Great stay and would recommend Highgarden to others. Thank you! Mrs Lisa Fernandez Adams - 8th August 2019

Fantastic location. So much to do in Falmouth. A well-equipped house and lovely comfortable beds - very rare in holiday lets! A perfect week! The Cooks - 25th August 2017
What a lovely stay - lots to see, do eat and drink in Falmouth. The facilities in the house are like a home from home and we've enjoyed lazy breakfasts with a pot of fresh coffee each morning; we did venture to Fuel for breakfast one day and the food was great. I can particularly recommend the Kedgeree - yum! Sandra, Gordon and Evie - 18th August 2017
