Thank you Gransnet for picking me as the winner of a two night break at the lovely Greenbank Hotel in Falmouth.
Set right on the waterfront, this hotel dates back to the 17th century and has a reputation for great food. Indeed the food was absolutely delicious and the view from the restaurant was to die for.
Never one to miss an opportunity for a holiday, we extended our break with an extra night so that we could explore Falmouth properly. It’s a bustling seaside town and there’s loads going on with plenty of opportunity for eating, shopping, sightseeing and walking. The town has a naval history and there are lots of hidey holes and steps down to the harbour where you can imagine all sorts of mischief going on in times gone by.
Our favourite place to eat in town was the recently refurbished Star and Garter. This unassuming pub serves up first class food, all made on the premises, including this huge slab of pork pie!
We were also treated to first class train travel on First Great Western, which was perfect as it’s a good few hours by train from Chester and we appreciated travelling in comfort. So, thank you Gransnet!
