Whatever time of year you book holiday cottages in Falmouth, you can certainly expect to be kept busy. It is widely regarded as the Cornish events capital, so basing yourself here will see you being spoilt for choice when it comes to things to see and do.
One of the major reasons people select last minute cottages in Cornwall when they feel like escaping the daily grind for a weekend is because they know they will be able to enjoy staggering coastal views, rustic villages and some of the best water sports opportunities in the country.
However, the region also hosts a legion of events every year - and Falmouth's calendar in particular is bursting with offerings.
You could arrange to stay near the town next March, when the annual Spring Festival is scheduled to take place.
Running from March 17th to 25th, it is not to be missed if the previous festival's itinerary is anything to go by.
Indeed, 2011 attendees were able to enjoy guided evening tours of the town, a flower show in the pavilion, daily rockpooling sessions, a fashion show, gardening talks, film screenings and the Spring Market.
At some holiday resorts in the UK it is common for things to wind down once the summer is over, but not so in Falmouth. Indeed, with autumn comes a packed schedule you could take advantage of if you are staying near the town during the season.
October 11th to 14th 2012 will mark the popular Falmouth Oyster Festival, held to mark the start of the oyster dredging season.
As well as being able to sample plenty of the catch from which the event takes its name, there will be even more seafood on offer for you to enjoy.
Kids will also be kept well amused with shell-painting classes, while you may be lucky enough to attend a cooking master class held by a celebrity chef or any one of the many other kitchen demonstrations.
Food and drink lovers visiting in autumn may also wish to schedule their trip around the town's Beer festival. Although the 2012 dates have not yet been announced, you can expect to be able to choose from hundreds of different ales to try during this event, along with supping ciders and fruit wines.
However, if you just can't wait until 2012 to take your short jaunt to Falmouth, how about new year? Cottages in Cornwall could provide you with beautiful accommodation in which to stay and toast the arrival of 2012 in style.
