Westcountry Winter Warmers

Hold each other close, winter is well and truly upon us and summer seems a long, long way away.

It’s always warm and welcoming at the Greenbank, but as we’ve all got to venture outside at one point, we’ve researched where to keep warm when out and about in Falmouth during the frostier months of the year:

The Poly

Always keen to get grey matter whirring, The Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society (otherwise known as ‘The Poly’) are innovators of the arts and sciences; and their grade II listed building is just the place to warm up physically as well as intellectually.

Film screenings, talks, workshops, comedy shows and exhibitions are shown throughout the year and are excellent opportunities for some culture when things get cold.


Anyone visiting the town with a penchant for prose should make note of Telltales: specialist evenings promoting the written, spoken and performed word – wholly embracing the creative, artisan nature of Falmouth.

There’s no pressure to perform, and audience members are welcome to drink in the literature, which was especially true at their December rendezvous at Dolly’s Wine Bar.

lways choosing a warm and pleasant venue, the Telltales scenery changes with each meeting, providing a refreshing location to hear the word in all its glory.

The Phoenix

There’s no better way to get away from nasty winter weather than with a trip to the cinema; The Phoenix’s big screens, dark rooms and essential sweet-or-salty popcorn choice is all you need for an afternoon of escapism.

Independently owned and run, it’s clear to see that the staff care about film as much as the customers, and an exclusive ‘meal area’ means you can have your supper whilst watching your new favourite flick!

Our Winter Warmer package starts at £99 BB, includes a complimentary cream tea and is available until the end of February. With so many unique experiences in Falmouth at your fingertips, shorter days won’t short change your stay.
