Welcome to Dolvean House...
Dolvean House offers five-star guest accommodation here in Falmouth. Shaun and Renate Davie look forward to spoiling you with care and courtesy as well as modern luxury and comfort. Each of the ten individually decorated rooms offer a relaxed environment as well as superb views towards the harbour and town. The house is licensed and carries a small selection of wines, beers and spirits. There is our own private car park away from the road. Beach and town centre are just five to ten minutes walk away. Wireless broadband is available throughout the building free of charge.
Falmouth is relatively central to the majority of what Cornwall has to offer. The town is steeped in marine history, with a lovely blue flag beach and a nice shopping mile throughout the town. Henry VIII’s castles at Pendennis and St.Mawes are visible from the town and are among the finest examples of their kind. Within and around the town you are spoilt for choice with over 30 superb restaurants. The Cornish ‘cuisine’ stretches from hearty traditional pub food to more modern seaside bistros, including famous TV-chef Rick Stein’s oyster bar to elegant and exquisite restaurants utilising local produce from the sea and land. Something for everybody's taste.
Falmouth is home to the famous Wood Lane Art College with the Tremough campus, part of Exeter University, also nearby. Falmouth Docks and ship repair yard and alongside Pendennis boat yard - responsible for many well-known multimillion pound yachts - are all thriving businesses. It is also a stop for many big cruise ships calling in for a day or two.
For the green fingered, you can explore the many beautiful sub tropical gardens in Cornwall. The beautiful plants and flowers within the gardens are due to our Gulf Stream induced climate which helped the Victorians establish many of them. Five of the over sixty great Cornish gardens are within a 20 minute drive from Falmouth; Trebah and Glendurgan Garden, Penjerrick, Trelissick and, of course, Fox Rosehill Garden are just 500 metres away.
There is plenty to see and to enjoy, please browse our website to find out more. We look forward to meeting you soon and will be glad to help you with any questions.
