How To Spend 72 Hours In Cornwall

I’ve just gotten back from Cornwall and I’ve been dying to share a little travel guide with you all.

My husband and I spent 2 nights, 3 days in the beautiful Falmouth, so this will be a guide of how to spend 72 hours in Cornwall. It was a lovely break away from London, although the 5 hour drive there and back wasn’t fun.

Any who, I will be discussing where to stay, where to eat, coffee shops and things to do! So without further a do…

Where to stay

We stayed at the stunning Greenbank hotel which was around £200 per night. Our room was lovely, the bed was HUGE, the bathroom was goals and the tea and biscuits went down like a treat. We also got complimentary breakfast in the mornings which was divine.

The location was great, it was a 5-10 minute walk into the town centre and a 30 minute walk away from the beach.

Where to stop for coffee

We overdosed on caffeine when the weather wasn’t so great.

Beacon coffee was my fave, the latte’s here were amazing.

Another great spot was Cavendish Coffee House, I enjoyed a hot chocolate here. The atmosphere was really lovely too. Also, check out De Wynns Falmouth’s original coffee shop, the mint tea was superb and Joe enjoyed his flat white.

And lastly, check out Bahama Mamas, a cute Mexican cafe with amazing cappuccinos and cocktails. 

Where to eat

If you’re in the mood for fish and chips check out the award winning Harbour Lights. 

For a Sunday roast you HAVE to visit Pennycomequick. The food was AMAZING and the service was the best. The vibe was really nice in this pub and I can’t believe it’s the first pub I’ve been in since March, cray.

If you’re in a pizza mood or you fancy some cider, you must visit The Stable. We had garlic bread, some rosemary wedges and a jackfruit pizza to share. I also had a raspberry and rhubarb cider which was lovely.

For brunch, you HAVE to check out Indidog, they serve the BEST fish finger sandwiches. Joe also had a cheese and asparagus sandwich and loved it. For drinks I had a green tea and Joe had a cookies and cream milkshake, divine.
Also, we only paid £17.50, half price – due to it being part of the government eat out scheme, so do take advantage of that.

For brekkie we indulged in a fry up from the Greenback hotel which was complimentary. 

Things to do

Explore Falmouth town, lots of cute shops and restaurants about. And visit Gylly beach. Also check out the views from the Greenbank hotel!

Have you been to Cornwall? If so let me know your suggestions in the comments below. I’d love to go back and visit Newquay (been once before about 12 years ago) and St Ives.

      It’s so beautiful, I wish I travelled around several places in Cornwall instead of just staying in Falmouth. Yeah I know, although the help to eat out scheme is really good. We went to a restaurant and it only cost us £17.50 for the both of us. x

    I’d jump in the car right now and head to Cornwall! I love the place and the more I see it the more I want to be there! We are going down in October and I can’t wait.

    It looks like you had a wonderful time and the hotel looks gorgeous. Your pictures are lovely too x

    Looks like you had an amazing time! Your pictures look really good!

    I miss traveling so much. I don’t know when we will be able to travel freely again. There continues to be a ban on international flights here in India, and there’s no indication of when that will be allowed again. And even if it is, I am not sure I will be jumping on a long haul flight any time soon.

    I had sort of this big goal of visiting Paris for my birthday in October this year, but it just seems like I’ll have to wait for some more time to make that happen.

    Thanks so much Shirsha :).

    Ahh that sucks. Although we travelled in the car to Cornwall, it wasn’t so bad.

    Paris is amazing, haven’t been in about 12 years but yeah it’s lovely. x
