Mylor is a civil parish about five miles from Falmouth. Mylor Bridge, its largest village, is located at the head of Mylor Creek, one of the western tidal inlets of the Carrick Roads, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a particularly good selection of day-to-day amenities, including a highly regarded primary school, sub-post office, newsagent, butcher and hairdressers. The village is also served by a doctor’s surgery, dentist and The Lemon Arms public house. There is a regular bus service to both Truro and Falmouth. In an easterly direction along the creek is Mylor Yacht Harbour, which is Cornwall’s most important and popular marina, offering excellent facilities for dinghy, motorboat and yachting enthusiasts. The wonderful and famous 13th Century thatched Pandora Inn is located within about one and a half miles, resting beautifully on the banks of Restronguet Creek, with a large floating pontoon for customers to enjoy.
