The property

The lively quayside is just a few minutes walk from this charismatic fishermans cottage set in the heart of the popular seaside resort of Falmouth. Neptune is delightfully tucked away in a tranquil leafy street, yet sits close to a choice of sandy beaches and is on the doorstep to an abundance of restaurants, galleries, shops and traditional inns.


With accommodation over three floors, the cottage interior offers a magical mix of characterful and rustic cosiness and contemporary flair. The sitting room is beautifully traditional with wooden floors and a wood burner and makes a comfy nook to relax with a book. Stairs lead down to the super-smart kitchen, a lovely space to gather and socialise with dinky wood burner, green and grey heritage hues and lofty skylights. Big doors beckon out to the uber-chic courtyard garden with seating for all to enjoy a glass of fizz or canape in the sunshine. There is a comfy twin bedroom, to make a superking bed on request and family bathroom on the first floor and the master bedroom boasts sea glimpses over the rooftops.


Neptune is an exquisite base from which to explore the golden beaches, quirky fishing villages, hidden creeks and footpaths through woodland and along the coastline. Falmouth offers a host of attractions for every occasion. Explore the harbour and hop on a boat to St Mawes or to the cathedral city of Truro. Castle, Gyllyngvase and Swanpool Beach are all within walking distance of Neptune, perfect for a swim, surf or kayak, or get busy with a net and bucket and explore the rock pools. Visit historic Pendennis Castle, once home to Henry VIII or enjoy a ramble along the picturesque coastal path to Helford Passage. The sub-tropical gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan are nearby. The Helford River with secret river inlets and the Lizard Peninsula, with scenic coves set against dramatic granite cliffs are within easy reach by car; Kynance Cove is breathtaking and will not disappoint!
