St Michaels Resort, Cornwall

Feel good in Falmouth

This smart resort, which overlooks the azure waters of Gylly Beach, is an oasis of subtropical splendour in the foodie hub of Falmouth.

Guests will find endless opportunities to entertain themselves by wandering through lush gardens, lazing in the largest hydrothermal pool in the South West, being wrapped in seaweed in the spa or burning off calories in the high‑calibre fitness centre. And that’s even before factoring in the delights of sea swimming and paddleboarding on a beach which is practically at the end of the drive.

Two restaurants offer yet more choice and diversion, so guests barely need venture beyond St Michaels’ perimeter. Brasserie on the Bay specialises in locally caught and reared ingredients cooked on the grill, while The Garden Kitchen offers more casual dining with the likes of wood‑fired pizza and nutritious salads.

A stool at the island bar is the perfect place to start an evening of feasting; dip into the cocktail menu and chat to the friendly front‑of‑house crew as you soak up the fun holiday vibe.

Trencherman’s tip: check out St Michaels’ latest development, The Liner. Its stylish beachside residences are ideal for self‑catered breaks and come with all the benefits of a stay at the main resort.
