TAKE THE FOODIE TRAIL. . .
Falmouth and the surrounding area is becoming a well-known foodie destination with a number of fantastic places offering culinary delights easily accessible from Mylor Harbour. From the well-known Rick Steins Fish & Chips on the harbour front in Falmouth to little hidden gems such as Muddy Beach Café which can be found in nearby Penryn, one of the oldest market towns in Cornwall.
Mylor boasts two delicious eateries where you can sample exceptional cooking right on your doorstep during your holiday. Positioned on the harbour front, they offer unrivalled views out across the Fal Estuary, are also dog friendly.
Café Mylor offers a delicious breakfast and lunch menu with tempting daily specials that are worth sampling, and for your evening meal, Castaways has an Italian inspired menu with an array of mouth-watering seafood dishes for every palate.
We’re so in love with food here in Cornwall that we even have a festival to celebrate it. The Great Cornish Food Festival takes place every September on Lemon Quay in Truro, Cornwall’s only city.
The festival is the largest event of its kind dedicated entirely to Cornwall’s remarkable food and drink. with demonstrations from local Michelin star Chef Nathan Outlaw.
Not around for the festival? Don’t worry.
Truro’s Lemon Quay also plays host to a regular farmers market on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays where you’ll find ‘the grassroots of Cornwall’s culinary scene.’ Soak up the smells of freshly baked bread and smoked fish, rows of perfect blue duck eggs, preserves in a rainbow of colours and cakes to make your mouth water.
Just a few steps away from your front door, Mylor has direct access to some beautiful coastal walks.
Explore the costal footpath which takes you along the edge of the Fal Estuary along to Trefusis point with some amazing views out across Falmouth Harbour. The walk loops around to the beautiful fishing village of Flushing where you’ll find a couple of friendly pubs to welcome you with a local ale or cider.
There’s also a creekside walk accessed from our neighbouring village, Mylor Bridge. Only a mile from the Harbour it offers a relaxing stroll along the quiet inlets of Mylor Creek with views out across the Carrick Roads and the Roseland and on to the headland to Restonguet Weir.
With so much delicious food, drink and local produce around you, why not sample some while taking in the beautiful scenery. Café Mylor offers a takeaway menu which has proved a hit with walkers and sailors alike and then there’s the Courtyard Deli Kitchen based in Falmouth, a family owned business offering home baked treats, charcuterie with home cured and smoked meats and artisan cheeses.
Our self-catering apartments offer our guests a home by the sea from which to explore, escape and relax this September with the capacity to sleep from 2 up to 8 people.
