Cosy Nights In The Crows Nest; Star & Garter, Falmouth
Star & Garter is one of those buildings which you always admire when walking past. From the street, you can see right through to appreciate their amazing view and the character of the old building is respected and highlighted. Based on the old high street of Falmouth, perched high up to offer faultless views over the water and across to neighbouring Flushing. Star & Garter has been running as a public house for a very long time and the current owners have put a lot of heart and soul into the apartments upstairs to offer the perfect base when staying in the area.
They currently have three apartments available, all with their own unique touches and style. We had the absolute pleasure of staying the night in Crows Nest, a one bedroom apartment in the top of the building. Heading up the tall staircase with windows of intentional placement, you will reach the door to Crows Nest and a few extra steps up, you are greeted by this all mighty panoramic.
The Crows Nest has a beautiful kitchen offering those far reaching views when cooking or dining. There’s a cosy lounge space with log burner, double bedroom and quaint bathroom. The interior decor is full of worn leather, rich tones, antique accents and many lovely comforts. From the sink-in-to-me couch, the binoculars for watching out for curious harbour dolphins and the mini smeg fridge adding some retro curves.
Star & Garter, if not visited to stay, is a very popular spot to visit for food. Well respected in the area for being a must visit dining space, they have evolved their offering and are now featuring their CocoRico BBQ chicken take away. We nipped downstairs to collect our bag of delights and excitedly rushed back up to lay the table. With their bundle for 2 offering half a juicy BBQ chicken and a selection of sides including roasted squash, fresh tomato salad and other perfect pairings. We tucked in and thoroughly enjoyed the treat!
Falmouth is on the south coast so time it well in the year, and you’ll be honoured with a glorious sunrise. I woke up as early as I could and took a seat at the kitchen ready to watch the golden light glisten. As the sun came up above the low laying clouds, it shone onto the lake-like harbour creating it to glitter. The seagulls were waking up and giving us a morning song and the boats gently rocked themselves awake. I could have stayed in that moment forever!
The perfect evening, from cosying up in the apartment, popping out for a neighbourhood drink and enjoying that delicious chicken dinner. Star & Garter apartments are so beautiful and even with everything Falmouth can offer on your doorstep, it’s hard to pull yourself away from just enjoying the space.
