The Westcott in Falmouth


A great Cornish Bed & Breakfast by Gyllyngvase Beach 


Welcome to The Westcott Bed & Breakfast in Falmouth

The Westcott Bed & Breakfast by the sea in Falmouth, Cornwall

image67

The Westcott is the ideal place to relax, unwind and explore all that Cornwall has to offer.  Nestled in a superb, quiet location with Falmouth sea front, Gyllyngvase Beach and the South West Coastal Path  just a pebble's throw away at the end of our road.  This is one location you are sure to love with stunning sea views from many rooms.  You can explore all of Falmouth on foot from The Westcott: at the sea front turn left for King Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle or turn right and head along the South West Coatal Path towards Swanpool Beach and Maenporth Beach.  Falmouth town centre and the historic harbour is a 10 to 15 minutes stroll with independent shops, boutiques, art galleries, cafes, cinema, Maritime Museum and waterfront pubs and restaurants. Falmouth Town railway station is a gentle 8 minutes walk away. 


We believe there are a few prerequisites a Cornish bed and breakfast must have: relaxing rooms, comfortable beds, immaculate bathrooms, fresh linen, fluffy towels, welcoming guest areas, free fast speed wi-fi and a complimentary hearty breakfast with plenty of choice.  These are the essentials that we combine with the highest standards of personal service.  This is what The Westcott is all about - we want to make your stay in Falmouth one to remember.  

 

We are proud holders of Tripadvisor's Hall of Fame award as we have earned their Certificate of Excellence for the last five years for delivering great service.


Please be aware that we can not accommodate pets, stag/ hen parties, infants or children under 14 years of age.  The maximum occupancy for our twin/ double rooms is two people.


Book directly with us for the best rates - it will cost you more to book anywhere else.  


Andy & Mark look forward to welcoming you to The Westcott in Falmouth.
